Your beloved home is complete! The only thing that remains is a blank wall. This is a real Catch-22 for homeowners. We’ve got your back! A blank wall can be the beginning of something new.
It’s time to start a new leaf. It’s more than just creating a gallery wall. You have a lot of wall décor options and techniques that can make your wall completely unique. Below are 20 proven ways to transform a vacuum into the X factor in your home.
1. Statement Art
Large artwork can have a powerful effect on any room. The artwork creates a focal point in the room that is balanced and doesn’t distract from the rest.
The more large your piece is, the more conversation and graphic aplomb it will bring to the room.
A large photograph or painting that is hung at eye level can make the most impact.
You might even be able to create your own minimalist, DIY abstract art. With simple shapes, abstract minimalism can be achieved.
2. Gallery Wall
