Has that big blank space been staring at you for a while? If you’re stuck figuring out ways to fill a blank wall in your home, know you’re not the only one.
A lot of us are still waiting for inspiration to take hold. Or trying to hold out, in hopes of avoiding doing yet another gallery wall…
And don’t get me wrong, I am all for a good gallery wall! In my last place, I spent painstaking hours arranging mine. And it was beautiful!
The trouble is – not everyone has that kind of patience. Some of us need an easier trick to turn a blank canvas into a fabulous head turner.
To keep it simple, all of these ways to fill a blank wall are easy, and can be done on any budget.
Here are a few of my favorite ways that you can make a statement on your walls, no matter how big that empty space is!
1. Hang A Tapestry
They’re not just for decorating a 16th century castle! Hanging a tapestry on your wall is a simple and chic way to cover a lot of space.
A statement floral tapestry like this one adds a cheerful look above a dresser, or the bed. Hang your tapestry up with pins, or use a rod for a more uniform look.
2. Create A Chalkboard Space
Chalkboards are a staple of farmhouse style homes, but they really add a cozy vibe to any space.
There are tons of easy ways to transform any wall into a chalkboard. You can buy chalkboard wall decals, or paint an oversized mirror with chalkboard paint. If you’re up to it, you can even transform an existing frame into a chalkboard surface.
The best thing about chalkboards, is that you can change them up with every season. Try adding one in the entryway, or your kitchen for a one of a kind look that will get lots of attention.
3. Use Ceiling Medallions On The Wall
Ceiling medallions are normally found circling eye catching lighting fixtures. But have you ever thought about hanging them up on the walls?
A collection of these circular shapes is a fun and unique way to fill a blank space in any room. The interesting textures and variation in sizes will draw your eye in, and a neutral color palette will give them a uniform look.
And you don’t have to go nuts filling up the whole wall, either. Pair several medallions together to add some serious character to your home.
4. Frame Wallpaper Panels
Framing a beautiful wallpaper pattern is another fabulous way to fill a blank space on your walls.
While I’m a huge fan of chinoiserie style wall murals, you can try other oversize floral patterns, or geographic bold shapes that look amazing in frames.
5. Hang Your Collections
You can make an inspiring statement in your home, by bolding displaying some of your favorite things.
Have a guitar collection? Hang up those babies proudly! More of bicycle enthusiast? Mount an old bike frame on the wall. The possibilities are as endless as your interests!
6. Make A Curtain Wall
Curtains may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of ways to fill a blank wall… but hear me out:
Displaying a pair of floor to ceiling curtains can make your room feel cozier, more romantic, and even make the space look bigger!
Try creating a curtain wall behind your bed, or your couch to add an extra layer of coziness to your space.
7. Go Green With A Plant Wall
Having some green in your room is a great way to add color, and make a space feel more lively. Fill a blank wall by displaying some of your favorite plants varieties.
You can even try hanging them from planters in the ceiling, or use an indoor green wall for a unique and vibrant look.
