Large walls are a big, blank canvas that can be used to create a dramatic focal point or add a striking backdrop to your room. The key is to choose the right design and then make sure it fits in with the rest of your home’s décor. With these ideas for decorating large walls, you’ll be able to transform your space into something truly spectacular!
Lovely large mirrors
Mirrors are a great way to make a room look bigger, and they can work wonders for adding warmth in your home. They also have the added benefit of creating the illusion of more space. The right mirror can be used to create a smaller room feel larger, or even help disguise an awkward entryway that leads into your kitchen.
You can use mirrors as a focal point on any wall in your home by hanging it at eye level so that it reflects other objects around it. This will make the room feel bigger and give you an opportunity to highlight certain pieces without painting over them completely like we would have done with our original planks!
A gallery wall
A gallery wall is one of the easiest and most effective ways to decorate a large wall. It’s also a great way to showcase your favourite pieces of art, whether they’re photographs or paintings.
To make sure your gallery wall turns out looking polished rather than cluttered and chaotic, keep these tips in mind:
- Use a variety of frames, sizes, and colours.
- You can use all different kinds of frames—wooden ones that have been painted white are classic, but also consider metal or plastic frames as well.
- If you’re framing an old mirror you found at an antique store (or something similar), consider adding a bright colour like red or green to add some interest to the overall look of the piece.
- Include many different sizes so that there isn’t anything too distracting about any one thing on your gallery wall—for example if all your photos are 8×10″ then it could become visually boring compared with other pieces in the room where everything else might be smaller or larger than 8×10″!
A fabric collage
You can use fabric scraps to create a collage on your wall. This is a great option if you have limited funds or don’t want to make large investments in art. It’s also a fun way to express yourself and use up some of your favourite materials!
You should use a variety of patterns, colours, textures, shapes and sizes when making a fabric collage. You might want to avoid going with all one type of material (like all denim).
Try working with different types of materials as well: silk scarves are pretty easy to work with and make great additions; lace curtains can also give an elegant touch; old clothing would be interesting too!
Artistic ombre paint
To create an artistic ombre wall, you’ll need to choose a colour scheme that works for your space and your style. If you have a bright space with lots of white or neutral furniture and walls, try using a single bright shade in all of the same colour family like blue or green. This will make the room feel more awake and energised while also unifying everything into one cohesive look.
If you have other colours already going on in your space—maybe it’s decorated with reds and pinks or deep blues—you can use this as inspiration for choosing paint shades that complement those tones without overpowering them. For instance, if there are already greens or blues present in the room (or surrounding rooms), consider using those same hues but with softer undertones so they don’t clash with existing furniture pieces but still stand out against other elements like rugs or artworks on display throughout the home.
An accent wall
An accent wall is a great way to break up the space in your room, as well as add impact.
Select a colour that matches your furniture. If you have a lot of neutral furniture and accents, choose something brighter like red or blue. If you have mostly dark wood, go with lighter shades like cream or mint green.
Use one colour that complements your room’s other elements and make sure it suits both your style and personality preferences before committing to anything for good since this will be prominent in every corner of this room for years to come!
Choose a hue that matches the style of your home (modern? rustic? traditional?). For example: reds work well with contemporary style while blues work better with traditional homes.
Wood planks are a great way to add texture and rustic charm to any space. Whether you’re looking for an elegant look, or something more casual, there’s a wood plank that will fit your needs. Wood planks can be painted or stained in any colour you choose, making them a versatile option for styling with other materials like metal accents and oak fireplace beams. If you’re trying to create a cosy atmosphere with warm tones in your room, this could be the perfect choice! You can also use wood planks as wall art by hanging framed pictures from them—the contrast between the natural beauty of real wood versus smooth glass windows makes for interesting decorating choices!
Colour washing is a great way for anyone to add colour to a room, especially with large walls, even if you don’t have a lot of experience with painting. It’s also less expensive than most other techniques. Here’s how it works:
Paint your wall with two coats of white paint. The first coat should be applied approximately one inch from the ceiling and all around the room. The second coat can be applied more liberally because it will cover up some of the first layer of paint and give you more coverage on top without making your walls too thick or heavy looking.
Using an old sponge or rag, apply several different colours over this base coat using long strokes in one direction (we recommend working vertically). This creates interesting stripes that blend together as they dry but still maintain their own unique characteristics when viewed from different angles within or outside of the room!
Personal portraits or photographs
If you’re looking for a way to create a larger-than-life statement, consider hanging a personal portrait or photograph on your large wall. This can be as easy as having your favourite photo enlarged and framed, but if you’re feeling particularly artsy, take it up a notch by commissioning an artist to paint your child’s face in oil or acrylics (or even watercolours) or even paint something yourself. A large canvas can be especially eye-catching when hung over the fireplace or next to the bed in a bedroom.
A colourful mural
A mural is a great way to decorate a large wall. You can create one yourself, or hire someone to do it for you.
Mural size is totally up to you—it just depends on how much space you have and how much time and energy (and money) you’re willing or able to invest in making it happen
Decorating a large wall is no easy task, but it can be done! You just need to find the right decor for your space and make sure it’s going to work with your style. The wall should be the focal point of your room. Sometimes this means finding ways for other elements in the space (furniture, wooden shelves,windows) to blend into the background so that all eyes are on that one beautiful focal point of colour or patterning on your walls!
Whether you prefer bold colours, neutral tones or artistic prints—we hope that this list has given you some inspiration for creating something beautiful in your own home.
