The thought of decorating a large wall may be overwhelming. It may seem expensive, too. But at the same time, you surely don’t want that huge blank space staring you in the face.
The truth is, there are plenty of ways in which you can decorate a wall. Well, of course, the best way is to think of an affordable large scale item that you can hang on the wall. You can even come up with something that you can make on your own so that you won’t have to spend much.
Don’t get intimidated, though. Here are affordable ideas for large wall decor:
White Cactus on a Black Wall
I’m sure you’ve already seen cacti wall stickers. And guess what? You can utilize them to transform that empty wall in your bedroom or living room into something more appealing. I highly suggest you use white cactus wall stickers on a black wall. You can also add real cactus displays in the room. Voila! Nice scenery!
Like what we have said above, the trick to decorating a huge wall is to look for large items that you can decorate with. Well, how about large frames? It could even be DIY frames. All you have to do is to put pieces of wood together and frame a canvas. Or, you can use the frames to display your favorite images as well.
Another good idea is to stick some leaves to the wall and create wooden frames for them. You can gather the same type of decorative leaves. Or, you can also utilize different kinds. This should bring life to your place as much as adding houseplants does.
Messages and the Alphabet
Posting some quotes and messages on your wall is an excellent way to make your home cozy, too. If you have a stash of bond paper or a cartolina and some markers, you won’t have to spend a single dime decorating that large wall. All you have to do is to think about inspirational quotes and write them down on a bond paper before sticking it to the wall.
Another option, especially if you have kids at home, is to cut out the letters of the alphabet. That blank wall will then be useful in educating your children.
Do you have a nice ethnic blanket? You can actually hang it! Doing so would be the fastest way of decorating that blank space. It could even be a quilt, a piece of fabric, or tapestry with a beautiful pattern. And you know one good thing that this can do? If the material is thick enough, that will also help soundproof your home.
Plant Wall Decoration
With this one, you can use real plants or artificial ones. The idea is to make a decoration using pieces of wood and twine. First, you have to create a large frame, which should be very easy. Next, run the twine from top to bottom. You can leave an inch or two when you start tunning another one. Once done, you can then stick the ornamental plants to the twine, creating a nice pattern. You can display it against the wall.
Worried about the price? No worries. You can easily transform that huge space into a chalkboard wall so you can start making your hand-made creations…using chalks!
So how do you create a chalkboard wall? You would need to invest in chalkboard paint, and then apply at least two coats. Make sure, though, to check the texture of your wall. If it has a texture, then you need to even it out.
Once you have created your chalkboard wall, you can make any designs that you want. That simple!
Framed Wall Paper
Installing wallpaper is good, too. But one thing that you can do as well is to cut out the wallpaper and frame them. Easy and cheap! Plus, you have endless options when it comes to the designs of wallpaper.
If you want that empty wall to be functional, you can install hanging shelves that can serve as a storage area for your stuff. That should help maximize your space, especially if you are living in a tiny apartment. You can also put some displays on them.
With this one here, you may need some help. It’s going to be worth it, though, because a shelf wall will definitely cover that large wall. Plus, it will give you more storage space. You can even design it in such a way that you can push your couch against the wall.
See, there are many affordable ideas for large wall decor. All you need to do is to pick one that suits your taste. You won’t have to stare at a large, empty wall anymore!
