Every area in the house may benefit from the final touch of wall décor, which can give it life and personality. A thoughtfully chosen piece of wall art or other décor may enhance the look of your home or provide a stark contrast that alters the atmosphere of the space. The objects you hang on your walls should pique your interest, provoke thought, take you somewhere else, or serve as a reminder of something you find lovely, amusing, or life-affirming.
Look out these wall décor suggestions for every area to get motivated to decorate your own bare walls.
1. Present Your Tools
A display of your favorite tools, collections, or accessories can also be considered wall décor. A collection of well-used cutting boards in a variety of sizes and shapes are hung on the wall in this Maine kitchen by Tyler Karu Design + Interiors, freeing up counter space while still being usable and serving as decoration.
2. Construct a Green Wall
Floor to ceiling living walls provide a significant amount of uplifting biophilic design to this dining room in Florida designed by interior designer Maite Granda. If you don’t have the money to install a floor to ceiling green wall, adding plants or making a preserved moss wall hanging yourself would have a similar, if less striking, impact.
3. Use preserved flowers as decorations
A large dried floral arrangement gives this nursery from Little Crown Interiors an earthy, natural touch.
4. Open Your Own Gallery of Art
Her living room’s white walls were used by interior designer Tyler Karu as a gallery to exhibit her art collection. It’s important to keep in mind that you may find paintings, photographs, graphic prints, and other forms of art online at any price range, making it possible to start building your collection even on a tight budget.

9. Build a Promenade
In order to anchor the area and maintain the decor’s simple, neutral tones, Kendall Wilkinson Design placed a sizable black-and-white landscape picture in the entranceway.
10. Sweeten It Up
Fantastic Using a series of wall sculptures that would amuse children of all ages, Frank introduced humor and whimsy to this Scandinavian minimalist apartment living room that was otherwise somber and serious.

12. Place a Decorative Sconce on the wall

13. Mount a clock on a wall
Fantastic Frank added a vintage George Nelson ball clock from the mid-20th century to the white walls of this light-filled Scandinavian loft. The clock broadcasts the hour and gives the room a throwback feel while also providing a splash of color.
