Blank Walls: How to Spruce Up a Living Room when You're Starting with Bare Walls

Posted by

If you’re currently staring at the blank canvas of bare walls, it can be hard to know where to begin when it comes to dressing your living room up and making it feel like a comfortable space. There are a great number of paintings and pictures you can post that will add instant vibrancy and colour to your walls, but here are some unique ideas so you can really make a splash with style.

Make Use of Old Vinyl

With the resurgence of record stores, vinyl is making a comeback these days, but what better way to combine a love of music and design than with a vinyl-themed wall? This can be an easy and cheap way to decorate an otherwise empty wall, so choose some vinyl covers in relatively good condition that will work with the size of your wall, laminate them, and post them up in a square or rectangular format. With the inherent artistic aspect and the unique images, this will add a cool, eclectic touch to your living room.

Create a Memory Wall

As the living room is already a gathering place for family and friends, a wall you’re not sure what to do with can be a great place to put up some of your favourite pictures of those who are closest to you. Keep in mind that if you have a monochromatic living room, a selection of black and white framed pictures will work to further enhance this dramatic look and will lend a homey ambiance to the entire space.

Instantly Accessorize with an Accent Wall

If you don’t mind painting and you want a simple way to make a bold statement in your living room, an accent wall is a great way to maximize space and add a refreshing contrast to an otherwise neutral look. Whether you go for a matte wall in a bright colour like magenta or you choose a unique stencilled pattern that will exist as its own art piece, this is among the most personal – and economical – of ways to make your living room look designer.

Add a Unique Light Fixture

A bare wall may seem like it’s calling out for a picture but if you have a unique light fixture that can only be attached to the wall, this addition to your family’s favourite room can maximize space and add a shot of brilliant illumination to the mix. While you’ll want to make sure that the light fixture you choose is a unique enough piece that it will command attention on its own, ensure that its size and style serves as a nice compliment to the rest of your living room.

It can be overwhelming to start with a bevy of bare walls in your living room, but there are plenty of unique and modern ways that you can dress up your canvas economically and with ease. From using old vinyl album covers to opting for an accent wall, there are many solutions for bare wall boredom that will work with the living room feel you’re going for.
