How to decorate the walls on your new home

 

Moving into a new home is a very exciting experience. Once you have all of the logistics in place, you’ll want to spend some time thinking about how to put your unique touch on the property. This can help you to express yourself and feel comfortable.

In fact, studies have shown that the décor used throughout a house can have a huge impact on the mood of the people living there. The decoration used on the walls is a critical part of the décor – here’s a look at how to decorate the walls on your new home to help you feel comfortable and happy.

 

Choose an overall style

Once you have moved into your new home, you will want to think about the overall style. This will help you to make everything consistent and guide the tough decisions that you will have to make when it comes to décor.

Here’s a closer look at just some of the many popular styles that are available to you. We recommend exploring each of them in more depth – you can’t go wrong hitting Pinterest and checking out some of the amazing inspiration that is available there!

 

Natural

A natural interior design style focuses on raw materials and warmth. Picture various types of wood and natural materials. This style revolves around lots of light and bright tones, helping to create a space that feels organic and sustainable.

This type of style has become very popular in recent years, thanks to a growing global focus on sustainability and a respect for nature. Depending on the property, this could be the perfect style to adopt throughout your home.

 

Minimalist

Minimalism is also very popular. This approach is defined by blank space and a limited use of calm, neutral colours. A minimal décor is very clean and helps to reduce stimulus, making your home a great place to relax and get some reprieve from the busy world outside.

Minimalism is still popular and creates some very striking looks. If you find that you do not have many possessions and dislike clutter, this is definitely an option that you would like to go for.

 

Scandi

Scandinavian design is absolutely huge these days. Seen by many as an elaboration upon minimalism due to its focus on clean design, this style brings together a range of textures and soft hues to create modern and inviting spaces.

This design style is perhaps a little warmer than a minimalist style, making your space feel both clean and cosy at the same time. Striking modern furniture and minimalist colour palettes are essential here, so you should be sure to do some more research in those areas.

 

Industrial

Industrial décor often looks unfinished, meaning that the style can be adapted to any room to create a striking and avant-garde feel. This style brings various rooms throughout a home together, relying on high ceilings and natural light to create a sense of space.

Bricks, pipes, beams and more are exposed and become part of the décor. This is one of the reasons that industrial interior design is so popular within busy urban environments. If your property has this feel, you can elaborate on the industrial style to create very chic spaces.

 

There are many more types of interior design out there, so you should be sure to do a lot of investigation. A great idea is to create some Pinterest boards and collect your favourite pieces of inspiration.

 

Decide where to place wall art

Now that you have a better idea of the style you’re going to go for, think about where you will place your wall art. Carefully go through your home and take measurements. You should also spend some time dreaming up new ideas and thinking about how you can play with the contours and walls of your home to create interesting framing opportunities.

Again, Pinterest can provide you with some very interesting inspiration and help you to create a home that feels just right.

 

Choose what to display

Now that you have found some potential locations to hang your wall art, think about what you will actually display.

There are a huge range of options available to you here. Your imagination is the only limit, so don’t be afraid to dream up some crazy ideas! Framed items will naturally jump out at you first, but feel free to think about what will fit with your chosen décor style.

Pick the right frame

After creating a list of potential items to hang, it’s time to think about how they are going to be framed. This is an essential step, given that it will determine how your object looks and whether it fits with the chosen décor style that you have gone for. The right frame will also mean your home looks great for as long as possible.

There is a lot to consider here. You will want to think carefully about the size of the frame, its material and much more. Looking for more help here? Check out our post on how to find the perfect picture frame.

 

Hang it appropriately

You will of course want to hang the frame in a safe and effective way to get the most from your subject and its frame. If you are hoping to hang something at eye level, the centre of the frame should be around 57 to 60 inches from the floor.

This is a delicate science, though, and depends on a range of factors like the surrounding furniture and width of the available space. Be sure to put a lot of consideration into hanging your piece and you will be able to champion your chosen interior design style.
