How to refresh walls in your home: 5 simple and original ideas

When it comes to renovating walls in your home, a lot of creativity is the only thing you need. Even though we may think that we need expensive materials, there are always simple and economical ways to change them. Do you fancy doing this in your home?

1. Wooden panel-walls

Wooden walls.
We can play with different wood finishes according to the space.

Rustic-style lovers will adore this idea to refresh their walls. It’s a great option that allows you to make whichever area of your home stand out. What does it entail? Well, simply adding wooden panels to one, or several, walls. The wood can cover the whole surface or just some areas.

Also, according to your preferences, you can add different finishing touches. You can opt for a rustic finish or simply leave it natural. On the other hand, if you fancy something more elegant, you can sand the wood down and varnish it.

You can also add to the end result elements such as colored paint or plants. This one of the most common options, especially on renovated walls on the patio or terrace, or in the kitchen.

2. Frame arrangements

Decoration with frames.
Alternate frames of different sizes and shapes to add a more creative touch.

To renovate empty walls, no need to change the material or the paint. You can bring it to life with just a few elements. A good option is to create a nice frame arrangement of different sizes and shapes.

The frames can be artistic or family photos. If you prefer, you can replace them with clocks, antique plates, or other vintage-style elements. The most important is to create a contrast in color, design, and material.

3. Vinyl and wallpaper

Vinyl and wallpaper.

With wallpaper or vinyl, you can bring color and shape to your walls.

Using vinyl and wallpaper to renovate your walls is still the way to go. There’s a wide range of options and designs for all tastes. However, it’s important to keep in mind what style you’d like in your home and what you’re looking for.

Even though this material is a real treasure, you must apply it keeping in mind other decoration details in your house: furniture, wall colors, accessories, etc. It should contrast with the rest.

If you want to go one step further, why not incorporate wallpaper in your main living room or on one of your bedroom walls? If you want something discreet, use vinyl on only one part of the wall, with details such as:

  • Flowers
  • Landscapes
  • Mosaic effect
  • Fretwork

4. Cork walls

Cork walls.
Cork on walls is very useful, eco-friendly, and very creative.

Here’s an idea to both decorate and recycle, so don’t forget to use this option! It’s ideal to renovate walls in studies or offices.

All you need to do is to find as much cork as possible and then incorporate it from top to bottom. On it, you can add pictures and photos, posters, or anything you fancy!

5. Murals

Wall murals.

Wall murals, in all kinds and shapes, lighten up the room they’re in.

Similar to wallpaper and vinyl, murals are getting more and more attention when it comes to renovating walls and homes. With the wide range of designs available, they’re perfect to liven up the main living room, office, or children’s bedrooms.

They’re large-scale printed photo-reproductions that add an urban, natural, or fantasy touch. They’re cheap, easy to set up, and some are actually made out of material that can easily be washed and cleaned. You can find them with the following patterns:

  • Natural landscape
  • City centers
  • Cartoons
  • Animals
  • Musical and artistic

Want to refresh your walls with these fantastic and original ideas? As you can see, you won’t need a big investment. The most important is to make the right choice to match the style you wish to achieve.
