During home decoration, it is natural to have one or more blank walls that leave you asking yourself: "What am I going to do with that?" You may get frustrated, but don't worry, you are not alone — barren walls are likely driving other homeowners crazy, too. What’s the solution? A fresh coat of ideas.

Below are some blank wall ideas that don't just cover the space but do so with a touch of beauty.


Add a Map

A blank wall in any room can be annoying, especially in a bedroom. Rather than waking up every morning to a bare wall, you can put a map on it. You can use the map of the United States, the world or any other destination you find inviting. If you place the map over cork, you can put pins in all the locations you’ve been to or the ones you want to see next. Have kids? Try putting a map on the blank wall in their room. It not only makes it beautiful but also provides a fun way to learn.


Hang Your Accessories

Don't allow your beautiful accessories to hide behind the closet doors. Show off your cloches, skimmers, berets, and trilbies on decorative hooks on your blank wall of choice. If you aren’t a hat-lover, you can hang a statement necklace for a dazzling effect.


Make Attractive Storage Options

Do you have limited storage in your home? Those blank walls could be the answer. Use your imagination to make an impressive design with floating shelves to store extra dishware in the kitchen or a favorite collection in the living area. If you get stuck on your design, there are plenty of DIY articles across the Internet, or you can get a consult from a home staging expert.


Create a Graffiti Wall

An easy DIY wall project is using graffiti. If you are the creative type, take the opportunity to show off your artistic skills. You could also hire someone to sketch a design on your blank wall. Another way to achieve the graffiti look is to buy graffiti mural wallpaper or wall decals. The decals are easily removable for when you’re ready to sell your home.


Give It a Dramatic Color

If you’re looking for a simpler way to make use of the wall, try creating an accent wall. Consider painting it with a geometric design, horizontal stripes or a bold, contrasting color. Painting is one of the fastest and most cost-effective ways to make a blank wall fun.


Decorate with Plants

A blank wall in a bathroom may be less of a worry, but you can use that opportunity to cultivate a mini-garden. A mini-garden in the bathroom? Absolutely. Hanging plants on the wall of your bathroom will help purify the air while steam from the shower keeps them hydrated.


Any season is an excellent opportunity to do an easy DIY wall project. Check out popular home design blogs or speak to an interior designer for more ideas on how to beautify your home.

The one piece that complements a living room as much as the paint is the curtains. After the furniture arrangement, new paint and other decorations, selecting the right curtain to crown your living room’s beauty can add a final touch to your interior design concept. And as much as you want to choose the best curtains for your space, know that your choice must be in sync with the atmosphere, style, and aesthetics of your home.

Here are some criteria that you can use to determine which curtain or drape you use to cover your windows and give your room an elegant look. 

Color

Your choice of curtains hinges on the color or design on your wall, and the floor. Your curtain colors must match either the decor theme or the furniture choice.

Thickness

Thickness matters a lot when selecting your curtain. Using a light fabric or material will allow rays of light to enter your room regardless of its state- partially drawn or closed. Getting a thick curtain will block light from entering your living room especially in areas that have streetlights outside that may interfere with your lighting effect.

The shape of the window

For irregular windows, it might be a better option to use bespoke or hand-made window dressing rather than ready-made ones.

Type of Curtain

1. Black Out Curtain: This type of curtain will prevent sunlight from entering your room. It prevents prying eyes from seeing inside your home from outside and has some decorative function too. 

2. Opaque Curtain: This works for people who want to preserve their privacy while still letting in a bit of light. Its material is of lesser thickness than that of blackout curtains, and it sure makes your room visually appealing.

3. Veiling: This is a light material curtain and allows light from outside to enter your room. It saves you from having to close your window during the day and also creates a warm and elegant aesthetic atmosphere in your room.

Reading home decór and style magazines can provide some ideas for choosing the curtain you want. Also, certain suppliers are always available at your beck and call and are ready to provide expert advice as to the type of curtain you should go for.
