Decorating the walls of your home is an important part of the overall design scheme. It's a great way to add color, texture and dimension. There are many different ways to go about it, however, it's important to remember not to over do it. Sometimes less is more because if you add to much decor to a room it can appear cluttered. The following list will give you some wall decorating ideas.
Mirrors are a great way to add dimension and extra light to a room. They can also help make a small room appear larger. Putting a mirror in the back of a display case or hutch helps give an all-around view of figurines. You can create a pattern on the wall by using mirrored panels.
A wall sconce is a great way to add accent lighting, whether you're decorating with a candle wall sconce or adding some light wall sconces. Sconces are great for dark hallways, staircases, entryways, bedrooms or anywhere that could use extra light.
Metal Wall Art
Metal wall art is a great way to add texture and dimension. You can find metal wall art that has a 3-D effect. Copper tiles and panels are popular types of metal wall art. Chemical treatments are added to the copper creating colorful patinas and designs.
There are so many different styles of clocks and they often look like works of art themselves. Novelty neon clocks are fun for game rooms, kids bedrooms and dorm rooms.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to framed artwork. Asian artwork can give your home an exotic look. Or perhaps you prefer rustic artwork or southwestern artwork. You can make a grouping on the wall with several pieces of framed artwork or hang a large one as a centerpiece behind the sofa. The trick with hanging any type of artwork is to get groupings spaced evenly and to not hang decor too high or too low.
Other Wall Decor
Some other ideas for things that would make interesting wall decor include large oriental fans, wall tapestries, wood or metal shelves, wall plaques, masks and artifacts.
