6 different types of wall art decor to try

Wall art adds depth and character to a room, and with so many styles to choose from – contemporary art, modern art, canvas art, wall art stickers, decorative art – it can be a little overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be.

If you’re having trouble deciding on the size and style, these wall decor ideas and tips will help you put an end to boring bare walls, and elevate your interior style.

1. Stunning natural environments

Whether you’re looking for living room wall art, bathroom art ideas, bedroom wall art, or kitchen art ideas, you can’t go wrong with photographs of natural environments. Nature conveys a serene and calming vibe, perfect for any room – like these prints from Format Framing.

Been searching for ‘wall art ideas for living room’ on Google? Hanging beautiful photos of the natural environment is a great way to add a sense of calm to any room.

2. Artful window fashions

When we’re planning to decorating our walls, most of us think of framed wall art, art posters, and other wall art ideas. An unusual wall art idea to consider is window fashions – like blinds and curtains with beautiful prints. An eye catching pattern, such as those in these Luxaflex Signature Prints Collection, can let your window covering act as the ‘feature wall’ in a room. Think of it as fabric wall art.

3. Sculptural decor

Textured sculptural pieces are a fast becoming a wall decor trend, offering a tactile element as the perfect complement to a sleek modern space. If you’re thinking about about adding nature-inspired and holistic artworks to complete the look of your interiors, consider a sculptural piece like this one from The Art of Weaving.

4. Go limited edition

Original wall art is a great way to add a unique and personal touch to your interior decor.

Limited edition art prints are the perfect choice for stylish and affordable pieces to adorn your walls – and purchasing any from Good Art supports established and emerging artists and non-profit organisations.

5. Look up

Another unusual wall decorating idea is to paint cornices. If you’re looking to add some vibrancy to a room, paint cornices a bright colour, you could even add some fun wall art decals.

6. Go monochromatic

Despite the lack of colour, black and white wall art adds character and can dramatically change the interior atmosphere – whether you opt for monochromatic wall art decals, or black and white art, or even framed black and white photographic prints.

Monochrome wall art can make quite the impression. Try adding black and white wall art decals, like these cute swallow wall stickers from Moonface Studio. Picture: Moonface Studio
