Home wall decor is one of he many major elements in home interiors that decide the kind of mood, the space will finally create when it gets finished. The reason for this is quite obvious. Wall occupies a major visual field in the interiors of any building.
Wall decor can be carried out in every imaginable way, you can think of. However some of the most common ways to decorating a wall are.
1) Plastering and painting the wall
2) Applying a wallpaper on the wall
3) Cladding the wall with tiles
4) Keeping the wall exposed (exposed brick walls)
5) Keeping the wall without plastering
6) Creating a mural on the wall
Which type you want to go for, largely depends upon what end effect you want to create. It must be noted that every wall decor finish will have a major impact on the interior design theme of your home.
But how to really choose the best finish for wall decor?
To solve this problem you can think from different perspectives. Wall surfaces are vertical surfaces and help in two ways. The first and the most obvious function of a wall is to act as a divider between two rooms and create privacy.
Secondly walls help to reflect direct sunlight into deeper areas of the interior spaces creating an even lighting atmosphere. For this to happen it is necessary to finish the wall with the kind of decor that will help easy dispersion of light into internal areas.
Another important point to consider is budget. All the finishes mentioned above will have a different set of execution costs and those must be planned before you think about adding them on the wall. However you can easily cut down the cost of wall decor if you design your home wall decor and other interior design elements into a “decorating theme”. A decorating theme helps to organize the design and saves cost if you consider it from point of view of the entire project.
So home wall decor if planned at the design stage will have a major impact on your home interior style. To save your cost you can even go for a combination of various forms of available wall decor ideas.
