Liven Up That Boring Wall With These 3 Tips

If you have a bland, boring wall in your home, then you may be looking for ways to turn it into something interesting and exciting. The problem could be that the location or size of the wall might be making it difficult to find just the right way to add a beautiful and useful purpose to it.

Luckily the folks at Sykes Cottages have come up with a neat infographic that shows 8 great ways that you can add a new life to the blank walls in your home. Let’s take a look at three of the most interesting of these projects.

Turn a large wall in your living room into a curated art gallery display showcasing the things that speak of who you are or who your family is. Choose pieces that represent each member of the family, or different aspects of your life. This is a great way to also connect across generations as each member of the family gets to share why the piece is important to them.

Use chalkboard paints in various colors to create shapes on a hallway wall to create a family planning and communication center. Each color can be assigned to a member of the family. With the addition of some small cork board or magnet strips and shelf to hold the chalk and eraser you have a full family center conveniently located near bedrooms and bathrooms. It will make life in your home a lot easier when everyone is on the same page day to day.

Make a plant wall in your bathroom to add a little color to a drab blank wall. Choose plants that are lovers of moisture and humidity and you will have a very low maintenance way to not only pretty up the bathroom, but help keep the air in the space clean and fresh as well. Use a variety of different pots and shelves to make a fabulous shabby chic look on a shoestring budget.

These three projects are just a sample of the 8 great, easy to do projects that are included on the infographic. Al of the projects detailed on the infographic are able to be done with basic skills and items that you can get easily and cheaply from any home improvement retailer or crafts store. These projects are also great for rainy day activities with the kids since they are easy and fun to do.
