We All Have One in Our Homes…
Listen, we’ve all got that one large wall in our house that we know needs something, but we’re not quite sure what to do with it. When it comes to decorating a big, blank wall, there are a few things you can do that will take little time and have a big impact. Here are few suggestions that you can try this weekend to decorate a big, blank wall…
BOARD & BATTEN
Board and batten is a great way to decorate a large, blank wall. I installed board and batten in our kitchen last year and it’s made such a difference to this large wall. Because we needed to ensure that the wall didn’t block the walkway from the door to the living room, this seemed like the ideal choice for the room.
This DIY takes all of five minutes (well a day or weekend to do) and it looks amazing. I’m so happy we did this and I know that I’m going to use it in other parts of our home soon. Board and batten can also be decorated. For ours, we added a mirror, but I’ve seen people add ledges, pegs or artwork. All great ideas to add to decorating a big, blank wall.
LARGE PRINTS OF ARTWORK.
I love to decorate a big, blank wall with artwork. It’s a simple and easy way to do so. I always get complimented on Instagram on the artwork in our living room, especially the ones on the entryway wall.
When it comes to artwork, always, ALWAYS go large. It makes such an impact and looks so luxe in your home. There are so many places to get artwork from, but my favourite place is Etsy right now. I’m looking to update my artwork with some vintage prints. I want to give my home that lived in, vintage vibe with neutral accents. I’m looking very much to showing this off very soon.
LARGE FLOATING SHELVES.
If in doubt, large floating shelves will always help to decorate a big, blank wall. Especially if it’s in an alcove space. When it came to building ours in our living room, it was such an easy DIY to do. And the impact that it has made in our living room is huge. There are so many different ways you can style them. The chunkier you go the more space and impact they have on your room.
When it came to our built-in shelves, we went dark, but you can go lighter or a natural wood tone.
