Anyone can become a designer when it comes to walls! Walls are the central
dividers of our homes. They can be as plain or as loud as you want them to be.
They are the borders of your favorite rooms and they accent your favorite
pieces. Why decorate your walls when they are just walls? Well, nobody really
wants to stare at a bare, unadorned wall. You'll go crazy if always do.
designing a room, designers usually determine the wall color first. This way
they can set up their basic color and the rest of the items in that room will
depend on the wall color. Others like to have their walls in plain white and
accent it with colorful or ornate wall decors. If your wall is white, cream or
gray, you can accent your wall with strong pieces that are classified with
color, texture and shape. Sometimes even the price is a big factor. Plain walls
are very easy to install wall decors on. Anything can be a wall decor! The usual
and most typical wall decors are frames that have paintings, prints,
certificates or photographs. Just taking a trip to a local furniture shop or
decor shop would expose you to thousands upon thousands of frames and prints.
When choosing a frame for a particular photograph, you have to see what frame
matches the image best. Black and white photographs of families are usually
frames with simple cut frames. For a more chic choice, ornate frames are
available in frame shops and are great when framing old paintings, a simple
portrait or even a mirror. These ornate frames usually attract attention making
them accents for the rooms. If you want to keep it simple, there are a lot of
frames that come in different colors that would greatly compliment your wall and
your furnishings. Frames are not just installed by drilling and hanging things
over your walls.
Setting up your favorite photographs and prints must be planned. You can set small, identical frames together; clustering it and making it look like a whole. Some people have their frames over the eye level, usually frames that are large like framed mirrors or large framed prints. A large framed mirror looks great over a sofa or if you want to be safe, you can try putting a large framed painting or print over your sitting pieces. Wall art is not only limited to frame pieces. As mentioned, anything can be placed on the walls. Some wall decor can be some of your precious mementos that you would like to display and show off to your guests. Aside from deer heads and wild boars, it is more comforting to display richly woven linen, quilts or carpets you purchased from an exotic land, or hang your family's pop portrait. Some homeowners have neon lights installed in their small movie room to make their inside look like an outside place. Other wall decors mainly rely on their wall paper factor. There are a lot of wall papers these days that have new and exciting designs. Having printed wall papers in vibrant colors and energetic patterns always gives out a big statement, making the pieces you will hang on it, simple and small. If you feel creative, try doing a mural with your family or have an artist make some wall art. Dealing with the aspect of wall decor is always an enjoyable task. There are no limits when it comes to wall decors. Remember that the walls are borders and dividers, but that should not stop our creativity in adoring walls beautifully.
