Nothing is better than coming home to a cozy house after a tiring day full of stress and work. Having a beautiful interior design is one way to make your home even more stress-relieving than it already is. No matter how big or small your house is, you can make it look just the way you want it to without having to spend that much money. Many people tend to forget or disregard decorating their walls which is unfortunate because decorating your walls is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to effectively make your house look more beautiful and elegant in an instant. If you want to add some flair to your home’s interior design, start by decorating your walls. Here are seven inexpensive wall decoration ideas that can help spark some inspiration in you.
1. Foil Tape Design
Add a wallpaper-like design to a plain-coloured wall using foil tape. This way, you’re upgrading your walls’ look without the hassle of using actual wallpaper. Foil tapes come in different colours so make sure you use one that would complement the current colour of your wall. Sketch out the pattern you want on the wall then just tape over the sketch. It would be best not to use patterns with curves to keep the foil tape design looking clean.
2. Photo Display
Despite being a creative way to design an empty wall, making a photo display is also a great way to exhibit moments and memories trapped within the confines of a photo. Take a couple strips of ribbons then attach them on your wall in layers, making sure the ribbon strips sag just a little to accommodate the photos. Using small clothespins, line up your photos in the ribbon strip.
3. Window Picture Frame
Put an old, divided window into good use by turning it into a family picture frame that you can hang on a wall. Just sand, prime, and repaint the old window then fit a pre-cut mat and a photo into each opening. Use glazing points to keep them in place and it’s done. Don’t have an old divided window? You might find one at an extremely cheap price in local yard sales or try asking your neighbours.
4. Scarf Art
You can immediately turn a beautiful scarf into an artistic wall design simply by hanging it up. You’ll need a scarf with an ornamental design though so that it will look like a legit piece of art once hung. Make sure you iron the scarf before you hang it up. Alternatively, you can wrap the scarf around a blank piece of canvas or frame it beforehand.
5. Jewelry Display
If you’re fond of accessories then this is one clever way you can style up your walls. You wouldn’t just be decorating your walls, you’re also organizing your jewelries while providing yourself with a convenient way to access them. Start by replace the back of some old or thrift-store picture frames with decorative paper-covered fibreboard. Hang up the frames then use a couple of pushpins to hang your necklaces or bracelets with. As for your earrings, tack a strip of ribbon horizontally across a frame then just use the ribbon to hang your earrings.
6. Fabric Art
You don’t have to be jealous of those beautiful yet expensive pieces of abstract art anymore. You can make your own with fabric. Wrap decorative fabric around an empty canvas or a rectangular piece of wood or Styrofoam then staple at the back. Hang it up and you have your fabric art. Put a couple of them side by side to make the wall design look even more elegant.
7. Scrabble Tile Wall Art
With just some wood squares and black paint, you can make a very clever scrabble tile wall art. You can buy pre-cut wood squares on a hardware store. Print and cut out some stencils for the scrabble tile letters and for the tile scores. This way, you don’t have to risk making a mistake. Just paint over the stencils with black paint, let the tile dry, and hang it up. Hang random letters or your favourite word.
