Unique Ways to Decorate Family Room Walls

The kitchen is considered the heart of the home, and with that analogy in mind, the family room is the spirit. The family room is the true essence of the home where family and friends enjoy relaxing and visiting, and it is a place that should be decorated with careful consideration. The family room should be comfortable, inviting, and most of all uniquely decorated to match the unique style and personality of the family. Instead of choosing the latest decorating trend, consider the following unique ways to decorate family room walls. As a result the family will want to spend more time together in the most comfortable room in the home. 

Forget the Fads

If you prefer a particular style, or if you want to decorate your family room walls in a unique and unusual way, forget about the latest decorating fads. After all, it is your home and your family room, and nothing is out of the question when decorating walls. Instead of worrying if a particular wall hanging, painting technique, or decorating style is in vogue, spend time making your decorating dream a reality by getting started today. What you want is more important that what others prefer, and decorating family room walls by adding personality and your unique style is definitely the best way to begin. 

Sponge Painting with Personal Style

Most people do not care for the physical labor it takes to repaint an entire room, and if the walls in your family room could use a new look, how about sponge painting over existing paint? Sponge painting adds unique style to any room, and you cannot go wrong with this freeform painting technique as long as you are not too picky or overly critical of the finished design. If you want perfectly formed repetitive designs and shapes, opt for wallpaper. With sponge painting, anything goes, and no two sponge painted areas are ever alike. It is not possible to make a mistake when sponge painting. 

Decorating with Maps

For something unique and truly different in a family room, consider covering a single wall with an array of old maps. Cover a wall with overlapping maps of your choice using ordinary wallpaper paste. They will add a considerable amount of design and interest to the room, and you will not have to worry about matching patterns as you would with ordinary wallpaper. Choose vacation maps from family trips for added interest and sentimental appeal that will never grow old or uninteresting. 

Peel and Stick Wall Decals

If you want to make family room walls look completely different without painting or papering, consider peel and stick wall decals. High-quality peel and stick wall decals are very thin, and they appear to be painted on when properly applied. These days you will find everything from fishing appliques to geometric designs that will add color and style to family room walls at a very affordable price. Best of all, peel and stick appliques are extremely easy to apply, remove, and reapply if necessary. 

Unique Metal Wall Art

Along with sponge painting, papering, or adding peel and stick appliques to family room walls, consider the many options for unique metal wall art. Metal wall hangings are available in countless styles and price ranges to meet every decorating theme and budget. Metal wall art adds unique three-dimensional appeal to family room walls, and you are sure to find exactly what you want at a price you can afford when shopping for metal wall art. High-quality metal wall will retain its value while adding style and appeal to the family room for many years to come.
