If your home or office leaves a lot to be desired in terms of visual appeal, you have plenty of options. Most people will think of painting a room a new color, but you don’t have to commit to stripping old paint and painstakingly applying new coats any time you want to change the look of a space. Instead, think about creative and decorative wall coverings that truly make your area stand out.
Here are some of the most creative and trendy decorative wall coverings that are rising in popularity in 2023. Give them a try, or use them as a springboard for your own customized inspiration.
Custom Wall Coverings
Of course, one of the easiest ways to make a space truly your own is with custom wall coverings. These can take the form of wallpaper or another application that has been specifically designed for your space.
If you own a business, custom wall coverings can show off your logo, display brand colors or even share important information like a menu. For residential uses, custom wall coverings are a great way to make your space feel unified—think, for example, matching the walls with a central piece of eye-catching furniture. Make sure that you get any customized pieces from the pros, who can help you not only appropriately size your project but also ensure a high-quality print.
You don’t need to be limited to common wall covering options like wallpaper or paint. If you like to travel the world, you can relive some of your most important memories by using maps as your wall decorations of choice, replacing standard wallpaper.
It’s currently trendy to paper your walls using anything from large-print photographs to magazine covers—whatever is relevant to you, either as an individual or a business. Consider how a professional could help you print out a collage that perfectly encapsulates your experience.
Most people don’t consider that wood, stone and other similar materials make great decorative wall coverings too. Parquet is a type of wood styling that lines panels up in unique, repeating patterns. This can give a sophisticated and orderly impression in your space, and wood is hardy in most circumstances.
It stands up better to moisture and stains than something like wallpaper or even many types of paint. In addition, you can choose the parquet pattern for your wood, which can help the installation flow with the overall aesthetic of your space.
Have you ever thought of using a mirror as a wall? That might sound unusual, but using glossy surfaces like this can do wonders for your space. Mirrors make an area appear larger and can make your room feel like it’s big and easy to breathe in. Similarly, it reflects light, which brightens the area and can even reduce your energy costs.
You don’t need to be limited just to mirrors, though—although options ranging from dichroic mirrors to unique shapes might be all you need. Consider acrylic paneling and other art displays that are glossy and carry a clean sheen. These can all brighten any room and give a feeling of depth.
Textures and Shapes
Walls don’t necessarily need to be smooth, and in 2023, more people than ever are realizing the many benefits of using texture for creative decorative wall covering ideas. Consider acoustic panels or wooden slats that not only add a three-dimensional impression to your space but also absorb sound and make the entire area more comfortable.
Textures can even include faux materials that mimic stone or wood, dramatically reducing the price (and weight) of these installations while maintaining an authentic look. You can make your space look anything from rustic and cozy to sleek and modern using textures—just remember to think about how texture impacts the rest of the space.
It can consume or reflect light, calming a space down or breathing new life into it, depending on what you need. It will also multiply or dampen sound, which means that you should carefully think about the goal for a space before you commit to custom wall coverings with texture.
