Decorating Your Walls on a Budget

Decorating Walls

Add interesting color and features to the rooms in your home by decorating the walls!

Filling in empty wall space is a great way to add color and visual interest to your rooms. From budget-friendly artwork to personal photographs, decorating your walls will make your house feel more like home. Although original artwork is one of the best ways you can do so, few of us have budgets big enough to make this happen! But don’t despair; attractive wall décor is within reach of every homeowner. Here are some of our top ideas for decorating your empty walls on a budget.


While an entire room of wallpaper can overwhelm a room or its inhabitants, using a remnant as artwork can work very well. The most garish pattern can become a statement piece, once mounted on a board and framed. Another idea is decals – peel and stick – which work perfectly in children’s rooms as they mature and change, as well as offering interesting seasonal decor coordination. Both ideas are perfect for any budget!


If you prefer your artwork with a little texture, mounting or hanging fabric on your walls is a great option! Rugs and tapestries are perfect for this since they are durable and can feature eye-catching designs that make them the focal centerpiece of your room. Mount a bar on the wall, then drape the fabric over it. Fabric can also be utilized by mounting on a board and framing as well!


Modern art enthusiasts should consider mounting tile on their walls. Abstract and reminiscent of sculpture, tile costs can vary but are usually within reach of your decoration budget! Consider mosaics, painted tiles, and interesting shapes. Again, with this approach, you may also tile a board and frame it!


World travelers: show off all of the wonderful locations you’ve been and incorporate them into your home’s aesthetic! Frame and mount postcards onto your walls for a snapshot look at your travels. For best visual results, arrange them like a collage and use the same frame for every postcard.

Black and White Photography

There’s something inexplicably timeless about black and white photography. To incorporate this clean look on your empty walls, use simple black frames. From landscapes to portraits, this monochromatic method to decorating will add a crisp, modern look to your rooms.
