The Best Wall Decor Ideas to Fill Your Small Space

Collect some ideas with these stylish wall decor ideas to bring your walls to life.

If you are on a mission to decorate a small home, it could sometimes feel like your options are limited. We know that there’s almost nothing you can do to add square footage, there are plenty of ways to make your tiny place feel perfectly put together. The secret is taking advantage of the largest open spaces – your walls.

Those empty walls are full with possibilities and just a few additions can make a small apartment feel cozy and stylish, instead of stark and cramped. No matter the style you choose, there are tricks that can amp up your walls and show your taste and personality. Your walls can be customized so that you can be surrounded by the things you adore, whether you’re an art collector, a nature enthusiast, or a book lover,

Besides adding to the walls, think about decorating the walls themselves. Use a bright and bold paint color to create an accent wall, or bring in pattern with wallpaper, stenciling, and other decorative paint techniques. (Think about transforming your ceiling while you’re at it!) These decorative accents can have an even bigger impact in a small space.

If you’re ready to take your small space to the next level, we’ve gathered some inspiration to get you started. Browse these wall decor ideas that are sure to add style to your home.

Go for Large-Scale Art

An oversize painting or photograph will capture attention and set the tone in a small space. Try a black-and-white photo in a minimalist space or add color with a vibrant abstract piece.
