Many design decisions have to be made when you purchase one of the new homes for sale in Plano. You have to determine what color to paint the walls, what cabinets to install, what lighting to use, etc. Then, you have to decide what furniture goes where. Finally, it will be time to focus on adding some art work. After all, there’s nothing more uninspiring than staring at a blank wall.
Paintings, pictures and patterns can certainly add personality and character to the dullest rooms. But how do you decide what picture or painting should go where? Here are a few creative ways to fill those blank walls in your new home.
Hang a split canvas – A clever way to display a wide image like a landscape is to split it in two and hang the two halves side by side with a slight gap in the middle.
Create bean art – Paint and paste dried beans onto a canvas to create kitschy kitchen art. For example, the beans could be used to display images of coffee and tea pots or salt and pepper shakers. Use your imagination.
Hang vintage art – Add personality and interest to any room by hanging old signs, prints, even vintage bakeware. You can find items like these at garage sales, flea markets and antique shops.
Accent pieces – Choose a central attractive accent piece that will tie into the theme for your wall. For instance, if you plan to hang several black and white photos or prints, look for a black and white clock to unify the look.
Use empty frames – Create a unique wall display by hanging decorative, empty picture frames. Alternatively, you can also trace or draw your own art on the frame’s glass cover.
Use wooden planks – One way to change the mood and appearance of a room is to cover one entire empty wall with wooden planks. This technique adds a whole new layer of depth and contrast to your space. For a bold effect, try mixing dark stained wood with light colored walls.
Display useful storage – If you’re a practical decorator who isn’t a big fan of art, you can still create an attractive wall hanging that is functional too. For instance, you can create a framed jewelry organizer using an ornate picture frame. The jewelry creates an eye-catching piece, and your accessories are always at hand when you need them.
