If you're not into bare walls, we’ve got six easy DIY home decor ideas for you. Trust us, you'll love having a livened-up space!
1- Texturize With Wall Panels
Maybe your walls are flat and featureless, or maybe you’d rather have some walls with character and a sense of time or place. If so, adding wall panels to create an incredible accent is a super easy DIY project that gives a lot of flair for a little effort. Installing raw pinewood panels can help you achieve a Scandinavian, vogue look. Industrial metal panels give off a more urban feel to your space. Either way, adding depth and dimension to your bare walls is a surefire way to wow.
2- Shadowbox Your Stuff
Why limit your collections to the mantle or tabletop? Instead, pick up a few shadow boxes and give beloved items a worthy resting spot.
Make the best display by grouping similar mementos together to create a theme. Your theme could be anything from luggage tags, awards, sketches, seashells, or badges. Layer items inside a shadowbox for added depth, and glue in place to secure. Hang your shadowbox on a bare wall and enjoy reminiscing every time you walk by.
3- Grow a Living Wall
Especially popular for those without an outdoor garden space, adding an indoor living wall to your kitchen can be an extremely rewarding DIY project.
There are many different ways you can accomplish this, but some of the easiest ways are to utilize a pallet, set up a series of filled pots on shelves, or hang specialized pre-made pouches. Plant hardy herbs that are dinner-friendly and you won’t only have a beautiful accent piece, but a delicious one too!
4- A Built-In Library
There is a shelf style for everyone, but for the literary (or the wannabe), a library wall is a DIY dream come true. Yes, building a built-in shelf from scratch can be more than a little tricky, but luckily there are easier ways to get the same look.
Install prefab bookcases and add some decorative molding around the edges to get that expensive look without breaking your bank (or fingernails).
5- Put Up Tile to Match Your Personality
For a big impact, this afternoon project delivers. Tiling a floor might take an entire weekend, but tiling a backsplash in your kitchen or bathroom is much less time-consuming. With tile, you can really let your personality shine by using fun colors, shapes, and materials.
6- Add Barn Doors for Functional Beauty
Adding a sliding barn door to your wall’s opening doesn’t only provide a functional way to close off the room, but it gives the added benefit of being a beautiful statement piece for your wall. Whether you choose chalkboard, reclaimed wood, industrial steel, or paneled glass, your barn door will be a piece of home decor that you will love to show off.
Check out our wide selection of sliding barn doors in dozens of different sizes, colors, and designs! You’re sure to find the perfect one that compliments your room and style. If you want to know how to make your DIY towel rack, check this out.
