Unique Wall Decor Ideas for Your Home

Create unique wall decor with these simple and cheap decorating ideas using minimal supplies. There are many sources home owners can use to create unique wall decor ideas for their homes. These ideas use cheap contact paper and minimal wallpaper borders. When I was younger I decorated every single wall in my bedroom with pages from magazines including Vogue, Glamour, Elle and Tiger Beat. There were risque Calvin Klein advertisements, bold images of blue boots, and an entire wall devoted to Billy Idol. I am not suggesting that anyone do this, even if you are into 1980s Retro. What I am suggesting is that in order to find unique wall decor ideas for your home, you need look no further than your own interests. Add themes related to what makes you tick, what you like to look at, and your interests with cheap and easy home decor items and you can create unique wall decor for any room in your home.

Unique Wall Decor Ideas for Your Home

Contact Paper Murals

Depending on the surface of the home’s walls you can create unique wall murals and designs in any room with cheap contact paper. Contact paper can be used on any clean wall which has a strong and durable surface.

Test a small corner of the room to see how easily the contact paper will come off when you are ready to change the design. Contact paper is no longer as hard to remove as it used to be, but it still has adhesive staying power.

Draw a design on plain contact paper, cut it out, peel the back and stick it to the walls. Use more than one color to create different designs. Or use patterned contact paper for a more decorative effect.

Home owners can create unique wall decor in a child’s room, the family room or the living room.

Vertical Wallpaper Border

One unique idea is to use a roll or multiple rolls of wallpaper border in a vertical, rather than a horizontal direction. You can create entire scenes, or highlight certain walls when you place wallpaper border in a vertical direction.

One Wall of Wallpaper

One current unique wall decor idea is to decorate only one wall in a room with wallpaper. The wallpaper can be used to give depth to a room or add color without overwhelming you.

Giant Paintings

Another unique wall decor idea is to hang two or three giant paintings on one wall, for visual effect. The paintings can be purchased, or take the cheap way and make your own.

Base the paintings on colors and a mood, layer the paint and make abstract images.

Framed Fabric

Have you ever found fabric which you love but you had no idea what to do with it? Or do you have some vintage fabric from family quilts or other home decor objects that you want to keep?

Find a set of matching frames, and display the fabric in the frames, as if they are pieces of art. The fabric is important to you, and you enjoy it, so why not celebrate it with this unique wall decor idea for your home.
