4 ways to make the most of your wall space


There are dozens of ways to give your room some character. You can lay down an area rug, choose stylish pieces of furniture and adorn with accessories throughout the space. But none of these adjustments will completely bring your room together if the walls are bare.

But sprucing up the vertical space in your home doesn’t have to be a huge production – even the most simplistic décor scheme can make a significant statement.

What are you waiting for? It’s time to reach out to a Decorating Den Interiors personal decorator for some decorating advice. He or she can help you make these adjustments for making the most of your empty walls:

1. Reconsider your window treatments
This one takes thinking outside of the box: Use your windows as leverage for sprucing up your walls by investing in new drapery or another type of window treatment. Your design consultant can give you pointers on which option and color can best give the space character while satisfying both function and design needs.

2. Create your own art gallery
Give your vertical space a personalized touch by filling it with wall décor to create your very own art gallery. First, print and frame your most cherished photos. Then, hang them beside a collection of your favorite pieces of wall art. Your decorator can also help you fill in the spaces with some of our own art. The variety will mix things up and add depth to your space.

3. Skip the paint – try wallpaper
Are you tired of the same old paint job your bedroom has had for years? Are you finally ready to cover those white walls? Don’t just consider a new hue – think upgraded texture or finish. Wallpaper allows you to break the normal limits and add some excitement to your space with ease. Your personal decorator can show you dozens of available choices and advise which would look best.

4. Give your wall some dimension
Perhaps the color and texture of your walls look just fine. Maybe you just need to add a shelving unit to reinvent your design scheme. This is an easy way to transform the space with style and functionality in mind. You can display a wall of novels or flowers, or mix things up and showcase both. If you’re not sure what to display, don’t worry – your personal decorator will give you the guidance you need to make the most style-oriented decision.

Bringing your walls to life is simple, it just takes some organized planning. If you’re ready to get started, call a Decorating Den Interiors design consultant and schedule your free in-home consultation. He or she will come over, evaluate your space and help you come up with the best strategy for giving the walls of your home the makeover they deserve.
