1. Peel and Stick Wallpaper
Accent walls aren't new in the game - they are an easy way to make a home feel more elegant. But if you're a person who doesn't like to paint, this might seem daunting for you. Moving the furniture, covering everything up, painting, letting the paint dry, moving everything back when you finish... it is very labor intensive.
2. Gallery Walls
I'll admit it; when I bought my home, the thing that stressed me out the most was hanging pictures. Mostly because, I knew that pictures should be hung, but just wasn't sure how to do it and make it look good.
Better Homes and Gardens suggests using tracing paper and a pencil to trace the shape of your photos and art, and then taping those onto the wall with a gentle, removable tape (like masking tape). This is great because it allows you to move everything, measure, and move again until you get your layout exactly the way you want it!
Tip: Use gold or black frames for an extra elegant vibe, or white frames if you want the space to feel more cozy.
3. Floating Shelves
Floating shelves are a great way to showcase lightly weighted items such as photos, clocks, knick knacks, or even plants! They look stunning, and give your home a more welcoming feel. You can place them above your bed, above your fireplace, in your living room, kitchen, or bathroom!
These shelves are fairly easy to hang and can be quite cost effective when compared to other kinds of shelving units. Be sure to follow the instructions when hanging and adding decor to your shelves to ensure that they are installed correctly and won't rip out of your wall over time.
4. DIY Headboard
Home Sweetly Home
Adding a headboard to your bed frames really elevates the look of the whole room! Many times, especially in guest rooms, we don't bother to buy expensive frames that come with headboards, and the overall look and feel of the room is impacted.
