Hi Guys

Whether you’ve recently moved into a new property or you’re a long-term owner, our homes should be the one place on earth where we feel the most comfortable and relaxed. From time to time, you may feel that a makeover is in order, (don't we all?) and as a way to brighten up a space, impress your guests, and give your home some character. Why not invest in some wall décor? To help get you started, here are a few ways to brighten up your home interior and have that personal touch.

Wall Murals and Paintings

Whether it’s for your living space, dining area, or bedroom, a mural can completely transform a room. Whether you choose to have a mural or painting that covers the whole wall, or you prefer something a little smaller, the choice is entirely up to you. If you decide to go with this style of wall décor, there are various factors to take into consideration, such as the size, the style, and the colour scheme to ensure you get it right.

Let There Be Light

From the moment you walk through the door, you will want to enter a home that’s well-lit and welcoming. If your walls are looking a little tired and bare, why not make them stand out by investing in some designer lighting? Using LEDs, wall lamps, and other options can help highlight particular rooms in your home. Whether it’s to put the spotlight on a sculpture or painting, or to simply create a calm and peaceful ambiance, the right lighting can totally change how a room looks. You may also want to hang some fairy lights up around your living space and clip on some quirky Polaroids of you and your family.

Modern Wall Art

Understandably, if you like the idea of hanging modern art on your walls, you will need to start by picking a style that suits your home best. If you want your home décor to be fresh and modern, then you will need your wall art to reflect it. Modern wall décor tends to focus primarily on bold colours, simplicity, and movement.


For those who are wanting to create a traditional or rustic ambiance, you may want to consider using a more natural material on your walls. Utilizing wood frames can help to make a warm and cosy décor that can be fitting for all types of rooms. This one is perfect for the shabby chic lovers.

Abstract Wall Art

For those who like something a little quirky and unusual, you may like the sound of putting abstract art on your walls as a way to brighten up a room and give guests a talking point. If you choose this option, there are all sorts of shapes, colors, materials, and geometric forms that you can play with. If you’re after some inspiration, why not explore the web and try out 3D wall art?

Whether you like abstract art, modern art, wall murals or paintings, there are a lot of different design ideas that you can bring into your home to give your property a much-needed makeover. No matter your budget, there are tons of ideas that don’t have to cost a fortune which can brighten up a space and create the ambiance you want.
