Idea 2

Create a gallery wall

This is a great way to show off your unique style and highlight some of your favorite pieces. You can mix and match different frame styles and sizes for an eclectic look, or stick to one style for a more polished look.

Idea 3

Use wall decals or stickers

If you're not ready to commit to painting or hanging anything permanent, try using removable wall decals or stickers. You can find them in all sorts of fun designs, from flowers to geometric shapes to abstract art. And when you're ready for a change, they peel right off without damaging your walls.

Paint an accent wall

This is a great way to add some color and interest to a otherwise bland room. Just be sure to pick a color that complements the rest of the room's decor.

Hang floating shelves

These are perfect for displaying items like books, picture frames, candles, plants, and more. They give the illusion of taking up less space than they actually do, which is great if you're working with a small area.

Display photos in different sizes and shapes

This is another creative way to show off your favorite photos while filling up an empty wall space. You can get creative with how you arrange them, too – think outside the traditional grid pattern!

Mirror Mirror on the wall…

Yes, mirrors can make great wall decor! Not only do they reflect light and make the room appear brighter and bigger, but they can also be used as part of your home's overall design scheme. Look for mirrors with interesting frames or shapes that will really stand out on your wall.
