Whether you’re moving into a new home or just wanting to do a bit of redecorating, some nice wall art is always a bonus. Deciding how to decorate your home can be a tricky task, especially for those of us who don’t think of ourselves as arty or creative types. In this article, we will bring you some of the top innovative ideas for amazing wall art and decorations, with ideas drawn from all parts of life. We hope there is something in here that inspires you!
Whatever your beliefs, it can be a really nice touch to display them in your home. Find yourself an online religious artwork store and check out the things they have to offer. You’ll find scriptures painted beautifully on canvas, perfect for reminding yourself of your favorite verse or passage every day. Maybe a painting of a religious scene or a photograph of a particular monument. Whichever you choose, you’ll love bringing your religious values into your home.
For a completely different feel, you could try neon lights! Neon lights bring an element of fun and excitement into a home. These days, there are multiple retailers selling fully customizable neon lights, with any design or phrase you want. They are also far more affordable than they have ever been before. What could be cooler than some neon hanging above your fireplace?
If you don’t want a neon sign but like the sound of the light effect, try LED strip lights. These come in a variety of colors and lengths, making it possible for you to decorate your home however you wish or simply bring extra light to a certain feature of your room.
Places You Love
Home is where the heart is, it’s where we stay, where we rest, and where we feel safe. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t bring an element of travel and escapism into your home’s art. We’ve all traveled, whether near or far, and we’ve all collected memories along the way. Unique travel or location-related wall art is something that can bring those memories to life every day in your home.
How about getting a framed map of your favorite holiday destination or an artistic drawing of your top city break? Posters, newspapers, and local imagery collected whilst on holiday can all be put together to make a great travel collage. There are so many ways to remember your travels in the form of art.
Sculpture and Texture
Lots of our recommendations thus far involve pictures or pieces in frames. This is obviously the standard for hanging wall art, but what if you want something a little different? Many modern homes are starting to include textured sculpture-type pieces on the walls. These pieces can be designed by yourself, an interior designer, an artist, or even an architect. They can be used to accent the shape of a room or simply to bring more life to a square room.
Another unique and quirky idea is to have a wall painted with chalkboard paint. You could do the whole wall or some small patches of the wall, giving designated space for yourself, your guests, or your kids to be creative.
Have some chalk nearby and get ready for an ever-changing display of homemade art on your walls. This idea might not be for everyone. If you prefer some nice professional pieces on your wall, that’s fine. But, if you’re up for a bit of creativity, maybe a bit of mess, or a different mix of styles, having a creative chalkboard wall may be the thing for you!
The Music of Your Memories
We have spoken about bringing elements of travel and other memories into your home, so let’s add another memory piece with some music. We often have particular songs that mean a lot to us. Maybe a wedding song, first dance, first kiss, or first concert. These memories are awesome to hold on to and remember forever. Help yourself keep these memories alive by bringing music to your walls.
One great idea is to paint or stencil some lyrics from a special song directly onto a wall. People often do this for memorable quotes, so why not do it for a lovely musical memory? Another favorite is the framed vinyl or tour poster for one of your favorite artists.
These are just a few of our favorite ways to add something unique and truly special to our walls at home. We hope there is something in here for you or that you are feeling inspired to get creative.
