Fast And Easy: Give Any Room A Makeover By Making One Wall A Focal Point

Ricardo Castillo

If you're all about instant gratification and love projects that give you fast results, consider focusing on one wall in your home. There's no end to the possibilities, and the project is fast enough to complete in a weekend or an afternoon. Armed with a few interior home wall décor products and a can of paint, you will have all you need to create a new look in any room.

Pick some paint

Do you want to add a splash of color to a boring room? Paint your focal wall a cheerful color such as bright yellow, lime green, or tangerine. For a sophisticated look, consider painting your focal wall black if the main walls are white.

To create a pleasing contrast, choose a paint in a different sheen than the other walls. For instance, if your walls are painted with eggshell or a flat paint, select a gloss or high-sheen paint for the focal wall.

Choose a theme

Deciding on a specific theme will help you select the best wall décor items to enhance your design. You may want to create an antique theme, floral theme, or an animal theme. Sketch out ideas for your wall on paper to get a clear vision of what you want to create before you shop for décor items.

Perhaps you want to create a photo wall and display family portraits. Choose frames in assorted shapes and sizes to achieve the best outcome. Add some decorative wall slogans with words such as family, love, cherish, etc.

Create contrast

Use décor pieces in various heights and shapes for the ultimate eye appeal. A large round antique clock will add contrast to a family photo gallery wall. Candle sconces also make great additions to a focal point wall by adding a touch of elegance to the room.

If you choose a large framed art picture for the main focal point of your wall, accent the rest of the wall with a variety of smaller items to match the theme of the picture. For instance, a framed picture of the ocean will look nice surrounded by seashells or replicas of boat oars or ships.

It's amazing how much difference one wall can make in your home. For minimal cost and time, you can freshen up any room of your home. And the great thing about making over a wall is it's easy enough that you can change the look when you want something new or to coordinate with holidays and seasonal changes.
