Wall decorations can instantly turn a plain room into cohesively designed space. From fancy framed art to playful wall art decals, the right decor reflects your personality and adds style to every room.
Choosing Wall Decorations
Consider these ideas for kitchen, bathroom, dining room and living room wall decorations:
• Framed Options. Display your family photos in decorative frames as a gallery wall in your family room. Show off a collection of antique framed art in the dining or living room. For a home with a contemporary vibe, feature an array of black-and-white framed photographs. They contrast with brightly colored furniture. Or, go with a frameless canvas painting for a more seamless look.
• Dimensional Pieces. For a room with a cottage theme, consider hanging 3D wall art, such as an iron scrollwork compass rose. Wood wall decor works well in homes with a rustic theme. Hang a wooden farm sign with authentic textures. For a more traditional space, try metal wall decorations with an intricate design, like a tree with sprawling branches.
• Peel-and-Stick Wall Decals. Decals are a great option for a temporary touch of style. Add flowers or map decals to kids’ rooms. Use inspirational wall decals in the kitchen or as bath wall decor to motivate you each day.
• Unique Focal Points. A stunning piece can draw the eye and make a statement. Choose a mural, a lighted sign or a decorative mirror to anchor your space. Surround it with other decorations that support it in style and color.
Tips for Hanging Wall Decorations
Consider the placement of wall hangings to have the maximum effect. Place kitchen wall decorations, such as decorative memo boards, near a workspace for easy access. In the living room, hang large pieces above a sofa or facing the main entrance to give balance to the room. In an area that’s dark or has low ceilings, mirror wall art can give the illusion of brightness and space.
