Sure, minimalism is having its moment, but a large empty wall in your living room can make the rest of the space feel unfinished. One of the best ways to boost your home's wow-factor is with a great statement piece of wall art. And good news for those with unfinished wall décor: there are many ways to fill a wall, and some simple fixes can be accomplished in just an afternoon.
An oversized painting or photograph is a great way to decorate a wall, along with countless other ideas that work with any décor style. If you're hunting for new ways to decorate your living room, look no further. We rounded up some great living room wall decorating inspo for your next home makeover.
Go Boho With Baskets
When it comes to creating a boho eclectic vibe, baskets are the cream of the crop. While a beautiful woven basket can be a great storage solution, a flattened version is perfect for filling up that empty wall space in your living room. Opt for either a single statement basket or a gallery wall with a wide variety of baskets.
Add Colorful Fabric Art
This contemporary look is perfect for anyone who wants a statement piece in their living room. Here, colorful abstract art made with fabric and paint is the perfect centerpiece for a modern living room. Though the space is small, the oversized print makes it feel much larger.
Try Picture Shelves
If you are a commitment-phobe, hanging a gallery wall with nails may be too much of a permanent solution for you. Here, picture ledges create a landing to display art that can be easily swapped out on a whim. This is a great choice if you like to frequently change up your look.
We love this simple paint-splattered abstract print, which adds just enough visual interest to this modern living room without feeling overly busy. Plus, while you can definitely purchase a similar beautiful abstract print, this is a fairly easy DIY to achieve with a large canvas and a bit of paint.
Rethink Wood Paneling
This is not your grandma's wood paneling. This chevron-striped accent wall adds a modern, eclectic look, and can really elevate your style game. Consider adding a paneled wall behind a couch or a desk if your living room doubles as an office.
Consider an Eye-Catching Shelf
These honeycomb shelves are perfect for displaying candles, small succulents, or photos, and they are so visually interesting that they act as wall art on their own. This shelf can stand alone on an otherwise empty wall and make for great wall décor.
Try a Woven Wall Hanging
Embrace your inner hippie and consider woven wall art. This hanging piece is created with a dowel and various colors of yarn, and can be tackled by anyone—even if you're not super crafty.
Create a Great Gallery Wall
We would be remiss if didn't include a beautiful gallery wall on a list of wall art ideas. A gallery wall is a classic way to fill up an empty wall, and you can customize the look to your tastes.
