10 Ideas to fill a blank wall

Starting with the basics

We all have one, that wall in your home that you can't stand to look at but don't know where to begin with. A large mass of emptiness that stares back at you as you struggle do decide what to put on it. This can be a bit overwhelming trying to figure out what look you want to create to blend with the aesthetics of your home. Here are 10 budget friendly ideas to bring some style to your empty wall.


#1 Collage Wall

Collage Walls are a fun way to show your personality and lifestyle all in one place. The great part about collage walls is they are so versatile! Gone are the days of perfect symmetrical collage packages you buy in sets. If you are wanting to layout the design one of the bet methods I have found is to roughly draw your wall to scale on a piece of paper and cut out pieces on the side that you want to use. You will be able to rearrange them and think of spacing the frames to go with your interior!


#2 Large Art Piece

It may seem simple but adding a few large art pieces can add a beautiful subtlety to your wall. Especially if you incorporate a splash of black to against a white wall or vice versa. Try creating contrast with whatever color you have on your wall. If you have a navy wall, try going with a white matted picture with a gold frame to add some fun. Another great way to add some excitement to the art piece is to frame some fabric. This gives you so many options for color and patterns to go with your space!

Wall Murals are an easy and inexpensive way to fill up a wall. You can accent with colors from the mural in your furniture or in some decor to pull the space together. Try finding a mural with a solid base/background with a print tastefully taking up that space so it does not overwhelm the room.


#5  Floating Shelves

Floating Shelves are a wonderful way to show off some of your favorite memories, decor items, keep sakes, etc. You can dress them up with high class glass and art pieces or load them up with books and plants for a more traditional take!

Wainscoting is simply lining a room with wood paneling. This is a lot more simple than you think. Measure out where you want to place the lines, you can use a pencil or chalk whatever you prefer. Take some trim pieces from your local hardware store, trim them accordingly at a 45 degree angle and nail them with trim nails to the wall! Finish by painting over all the Trim pieces so they match the color of the wall. Now you have a beautiful framed wall that looks like a thousand bucks!

Maybe you don't like the idea of painting your accent wall just one color, and don't necessarily want a full painted mural you could opt for a abstract painting like this one.
