DIY wall facelift ideas that don’t include painting
Being the largest surface in your home, the state of your wall is essential to any interior related thing you decide to do. This being said, most people will immediately think of painting as the only way to rejuvenate your walls. However, painting is not always an option. First of all, it can be quite expensive, especially if done by commercial painters. Second, painting usually needs to be done during the warmer part of the year so that paint can dry properly without developing mold issues. Because of all this, it might be a good idea to find some alternative ways to give your wall a facelift.
It really comes as no surprise that a wallpaper is first on this list. After all, next to painting itself, wallpaper is the most common wall decoration solution. Hanging a wallpaper has several major advantages over painting. First of all, the process is much simpler. Although some would say that painting is nothing more than moving paint roller up and down, nothing could be further from the truth. Painting requires a lot of knowledge, experience and technique while hanging a wallpaper is quite simple even for a layman to do. All you need to do is get the right measures and find an appropriate wallpaper.
Now, although it is more difficult to install tiles than put up a wallpaper or paint a room, you need to have one thing in mind. Installing tiles is a one-time job, you most likely won’t have to do again in your lifetime. Furthermore, with their very nature, these tiles partially insulate your home, significantly improving its general energetic value. From aesthetic standpoint, getting the right travertine tiles can make all the difference necessary. In the end, when it comes to maintenance, there is nothing simpler than the upkeep of quality tiles.
In order to really excel at interior design, you need to observe your home as a whole and this kind of holistic approach will do you much good. For example, sometimes (for whatever reason) there may appear a stain on your wall which you need to cover. However annoying this may seem, it is not really cost-effective to remodel your entire wall because of a single tiny portion of it. What you can and should do in this situation is accessorize. Add a wall ornament, a family picture or some other accessory to mask the imperfections in your wall. You would be surprised just how much can a tiny detail like this mean for the general impression that your home interior makes.
If you are in for something really revolutionary, almost avant-garde in your home, a wall chalk mural may be just the thing you need. Hire a street artist, ask a friend for a help or if you are skilled enough with chalk yourself give it a try. Get a set of color chalks and try to create an interesting chalk mural in your home. What you get will not be only of aesthetic value but of creative one as well. Also, this kind of solution to your wall rejuvenation problem will most certainly be completely unique. Your home deserves this kind of outside of a box solution.
Where there is a will, there is always a way and the fact that this time, painting is off limits doesn’t really have to present a serious setback. Try to find some new and creative ways to solve this problem and you will most certainly have a lot of fun along the way. When it comes to your home, looking for an easy way out should never be an acceptable option.
