A Blank Space: Decorating Your Bare Walls

pexels-photo-205321.png

Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Almost everyone has a bare wall in their home, one they had big plans for when they first moved in, only to see their plans get pushed further and further down the to-do list until this blank space just became part of their decor. The worst part is, thanks to the endless rabbit hole that is Pinterest, you tend to stare at your blank canvas while all the endless style possibilities out there dance about your mind, which makes deciding on something quite overwhelming.

Hopefully, we can help with that because we have pulled together a list of personal favorites. Here’s the best bit, though: our big ideas for blank walls are nice on your bank account too.

Black Is More Versatile Than White
The world has gone nuts for chalkboard walls with interior designers even labelling them trendy. Well, you and the rest of the world can thank the innovation that is chalkboard paint for this. Yes, technically you are just replacing your white space with a black void, but what makes this such a great swap is the versatility. Write messages on them, add to your grocery list, draw something special, create a vision board or just let the kids doodle on a cold winter day. The chalkboard is your oyster.

Get Creative With Clocks
Everyone leans toward photo galleries, the odd creative even daring to venture into the world of art, but clocks can make for a fantastic feature wall. The great thing is, you can pick up clocks for next to nothing these days - far less than bits of framed art. Not only will this make for a whimsical, rustic, kooky and unique decoration, there is also the element of practicality. You can have the times set for your favourite cities, or hang broken clocks and set the hands to the time your kids were born. Whatever you decide, clocks are a great way to spruce up that blank space.

The Mirror
We know. This is nothing new. People have been celebrating the glory that are mirrors since the term interior design was first dreamed up. They add light to your space, make smaller rooms feel larger and enhance the aesthetics like nothing else. Yup, it has been done and done again. But you can still make the mirror option your own and the simplest way of doing this is going to Artware and speaking to them about a custom mirror with a custom frame. The other thing you can do is pick up reclaimed mirrors from thrift stores and then mix and match them. Just make sure you check what is being reflected from every angle possible. After all, this is what will be seen.

Recycle From Nature For A Change
Nothing makes a statement quite as much as a wall made out of reclaimed wood. It is just that gorgeous way of adding warmth and texture to your home without being overpowering. Where you get your reclaimed timber from is totally up to you - pallets, barns, mills, driftwood, Craigslist whatever - but the result will be the same; breathtaking. Another option available to you, especially if you have more than one bare wall, is to use reclaimed wood from ArtIsWall, which is easily removable and reusable. It is quite something to behold.
