When summer comes, we all get that sudden hit of inspiration and start thinking about renovation projects. Loving the space we live in is essential for having a balanced life filled with positive energy.
That's why you can always find a new way to decorate and beautify your home and make yourself feel better while spending time in it. One of the best ways to decorate your home is to pick an empty wall in your house and make something fresh out of it.
If you want to decorate a wall in your home but aren't sure how, we've got you covered. We've put together a list of the 6 best wall decoration ideas and trends for this summer. Let’s take a closer look.
1. Gallery Wall
If you want your home to have a modern touch with some colours and brightness, consider setting up a gallery wall. A gallery wall is a wall covered in separate framed (or frameless) illustrations, posters, photographs, canvas pictures, or prints.
These pictures can come in different sizes and shapes but need to be connected, creating a unified image across your entire wall. You can choose prints and illustrations such as:
- herbal motives
- colour splashes
- abstract shapes
- a mixture of pictures and quotations
You can experiment with ideas until you find something that will complement your home and give it a fresh look.
2. Wire Board
Wire boards aren't the newest trend in home décor but are certainly very popular. You can consider adding this simple but fun solution to decorating a wall and giving that space a new story.
All you need is a wire board in the size and colour you prefer, and some creativity to decide what to put on it. Here’s what we suggest:
- home plants
- family memories such as pictures, notes, or travel souvenirs
- quotes and lyrics
The best thing about a wire board is that you can change what's on it every time you get bored of the current look and refresh your home quickly and easily.
3. Rustic Ceramics
If you really want to go the extra mile and invest seriously in decorating your wall, rustic ceramics are the perfect choice for you. They’re ideal for decorating a wall in your kitchen and bathroom. You can also use this idea somewhere outside, for instance, on the balcony or the porch.
Rustic ceramics are great because they offer:
- numerous shapes, colours, and designs
- a fun aspect to every wall
- a completely new look to your home
It may take you more time to decorate your wall this way so you may have to hire someone to do it for you, but it'll be worth it. You can find a way to save time on other obligations, such as work or school.
For instance, you can get things done online, order book review writing for school or ask a colleague to cover for you for a day or two at work.
Summer may inspire you to choose bright-coloured tiles with unusual patterns that you’ll enjoy looking at every day.
4. Mirror Wall
Mirrors are simply amazing for wall decoration, especially for smaller spaces that need something to open them up. You can decorate one of your walls using frameless wall mirrors and set them up to create a beautiful image.
Here's what we suggest:
- Start by choosing the shape
- Select several mirrors of different sizes
- Decide how you want to lay them out
It would be a great idea to draw your idea on a piece of paper, just to have a better idea of what it would look like once you put it on your wall. Mirrors will make your home look more spacious and will give any wall a completely new look.
5. Open Shelves
If you're looking for a more standout way to decorate a wall, you can create a lively open shelf setting and give your wall a new purpose.
Decorative open shelves are perfect for being creative and experimenting with materials, colours, and shapes. Our personal favourites are:
- floating, open shelves
- combination of wood and metal
- simple shapes
- not on many details on the shelves
If you choose the right type of shelves for your shelf display, you won't need to overdo it with details to make the wall stand out. The shelves themselves will be a huge change and a great way to make your wall interesting to your guests.
Plus, adding wood is a timeless trend that you’ll love for a long time.
Wallpaper used to be so twenty years ago, but they have become trendy again in the last decade. You may feel like it’s outdated, but the right wallpaper can make your home look completely different. The best part is the ability to choose, buy, and set it up in less than a day.
When choosing a wall to decorate with wallpaper, make sure that it's:
- not too big to make sure this decoration is just a detail in your home
- got good lighting to make the wallpaper shine
All that's left is to choose the wallpaper design and colours and pick a wallpaper to make the entire room stand out.
Decorating a wall this summer will be such a fun and creative task. Choose among the ideas we’ve shared to decorate a wall just the way you want and give it a twist. Enjoy your summer decoration project!
