Tired of the interior design of your home? Does it feel a little bit dull and unwelcoming? If you’re looking for ways to spice up your home’s interior, then you’ve come to the right place. Let’s face it. No matter how much furniture you put in, a house with dull walls can still seem empty.

Luckily, there are tons of things you can do to breathe some life into your home’s interior. Here are decorative tips you can DIY to dress up your walls.

Add colour with paint

Of course, the simplest way you can drastically change the look of your walls is to paint them. If the white or nude paint colour makes your room look boring, opt for a brighter, bolder shade. You can choose to paint the whole room with one colour, or you can get creative and paint different colours per side to create an attractive focal point.

Put up a wall tapestry

If you don’t have the liberty to repaint the walls in your home, you can opt for something a little more conservative. Hanging a tapestry requires little drilling. All you need are two hooks to mount the drop cloth, or you can even staple it in place. This piece is sure to create a drastic change in your interiors.

Install shelves


Mounting shelves on empty walls hits two birds with one stone. First off, you create more depth in the room, making the shelves a great decorative piece. You also get more storage space where you can put picture frames, boxes, books, plants and more. It’s functionality and design all in one. Moreover, putting up shelves doesn’t have to cost you a lot of money. All you need are pieces of plywood, plasterboard cutters and some screws, and you’re good to go.

Create a collage

Putting up a single picture frame or painting might not be enough to breathe life to your walls. But do you know what will? A collage. With beautiful paintings and family pictures strategically and creatively put together, you can create a huge gallery in the room. Compile some of your old photographs and place them in vintage frames, then put them up on one side of the wall. This is bound to create an attractive focal point, not to mention that it’s a good conversation starter.

Hang your collectables

If you’re a fan of collectables, why don’t you display them for everyone to see? Maybe you collect shells from every beach you visit, or you have a bountiful collection of medals and certificates from awards you won in school. Anything you’ve kept from the past can be transformed into attractive wall art.

Add a huge wall clock

Adding a small wall clock will not be much to brighten up a blank wall. That’s why you should opt for a bigger option. Make use of all that blank space and cover it with a personalised and artistic wall clock.

Put up a mirror

If you’re looking to spice up your walls and give the illusion that the room is bigger than it actually is, then you can’t go wrong with a huge mirror. Install one that’s big enough to cover the blank space you want to fill. Consider vintage mirrors with rustic frames. These may look old and rugged, but put them up, and you’ll see how much more attractive they look compared to brand-new, store-bought furniture.

We’ve all felt like our walls looked dull and boring at least once in our lives. With these tips, you can dress up your interior and rid your home of plain, empty walls.
