We’re here to help you unleash your creativity and transform that blank canvas into a captivating focal point. When a fresh coat of paint won’t do the trick, use these innovative ideas to add interest, character and style to your blank wall:
1. Moulding and Trim
Add architectural interest to your wall with interior moulding and trim. These decorative elements can enhance your space’s aesthetics and add a touch of timeless charm. Install an elevated chair rail across the wall with wainscotting underneath for a subtle look, or create a floor-to-ceiling geometric moulding and trim design.
2. Wall Panelling
Wooden wall panelling can instantly add a touch of elegance, warmth and texture to any room. Choose from multiple colours and finishes to suit your space, including oak and cedar varieties. Wall panels interlock together and may require some patience and intermediate DIY skills.
Use shiplap to add a touch of easy-to-install farmhouse style to your wall. Shiplap is similar to wall panelling in appearance and can be hung horizontally or vertically. The main difference is how the boards are installed, overlapping instead of interlocking, which makes shiplap a great DIY-friendly option. Metrie Shiplap comes primed and ready to install for added convenience.
Bring functionality and style to your blank wall by adding shelves or display units. Use floating shelves to show off decorative items, books or potted plants. Alternatively, install a wall-mounted display unit to showcase your favourite collectibles. Consider creating a mini indoor garden wall with hanging planters if you have lots of natural light.
