Top hacks for decorating a large, blank wall space

Blank walls can be hard to navigate when designing a space, and we get a lot of questions about how to make the most of them. Finding the perfect way to spruce up these spots may take a bit of planning. With a little creativity, you can create a beautiful and impactful space you've always wanted. Here are a few ideas to help you fill a large wall without breaking the bank:

Use mirrors 

Mirrors are a great way to fill a large wall because they reflect light and make a space feel larger. A large mirror can make a big impact on a large wall and can be found at a relatively low cost. You can find mirrors in a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles to suit your taste and budget. Frida doors from Norse Interiors on IKEA Besta framesTwo IKEA Besta frames (item 602.458.44) put together with two sets of small Frida double doors in charcoal black with Agnes brass pulls.

Hang artwork

Artwork is another affordable way to fill a large wall. You can find artwork at thrift stores, garage sales, or online. A large piece of artwork can make a big impact on a large wall without the need for multiple smaller pieces. If you're feeling creative, you can even make your own artwork using materials you already have at home.

Use wallpaper or decals

Wallpaper and decorative decals are other options for filling a large wall. You can find wallpaper in various colors, patterns, and textures to suit your taste and budget. Wallpaper and decals are easy to install and can add much visual interest to a space without hanging anything on the wall. Most of the time, they can also be easily removed if you want to change your décor in the future.

Install shelves 

Shelves are a practical and stylish way to fill a large wall. You can use shelves to display books, plants, or other decorative items. Shelves come in a variety of styles and materials, so you can find something to suit your taste and budget.

Add storage furniture

If your home would benefit from more storage, add a sleek larger storage piece that will take of visual space and serve as a focal point. An entryway is a great place to add storage to your home. This space is often used for storing shoes, coats, hats, and other items that are used frequently. Creating a larger piece can visually fill the space even if it's not taking up the whole wall length. It really utilizes the area by adding extra storage and acting as decor simultaneously.

There are many ways to fill a large wall without overspending, but remember that less is more, and it's always good to have a focal point. By using mirrors, artwork, shelves, fabric, wallpaper, and more, you can create a beautiful and welcoming space that is unique to you.
