A blank space is the absolute dream of any interior designer (or anyone who loves home design). But with all the love and passion in the world, it can sometimes feel daunting knowing where to start with the empty room staring back at you.
It’s okay, don’t panic! We have you covered with a few of our favourite room decor ideas.
Finding large art prints to fill out the space on your walls is always really tough. That’s why a gallery wall is a perfect solution. You can select different styles of prints or even a matching set of wall art prints to add an additional element to your walls. Make sure that you match the prints to the other colours or textures in the room so that everything flows together nicely. For example, if you have an oak dining table, pair it with an oak frame for your wall art.
A built-in bookshelf is a perfect solution for those areas of your home that may be wasted, like between two pillars against a wall. It’s aesthetically pleasing to the eye and also an amazing storage space for books, photos and personal mementoes.
Make Light With Mirrors
If you are looking to decorate a room with limited natural lighting then mirrors are your way forward. Incorporating a mirror collage or wall is amazing at reflecting the light of your current natural lighting and brightening up the room. It’s a classy way to decorate your walls and also creates the illusion of a larger space.
Bring the Outdoors In
Going for a more natural look for your room? Bringing outdoor elements into your home is a great way to accomplish this. You can place dried branches into a tall vase or incorporate driftwood into your stylistic choices.A built-in bookshelf is a perfect solution for those areas of your home that may be wasted, like between two pillars against a wall.

You can also incorporate battery-powered fairy lights into these aspects of your decor to step it up a notch.
Map of the World
The more adventurous among you will love this idea! You can hang up a cork map on your wall. It’s a timeless art wall piece but with a personal touch, as you can add pins to the corkboard to mark all of the places you have visited in the world. Neat right?
Never underestimate the power of paint. You can incorporate two-toned walls into your designs. For an area like a dining room, you can add wooden panels to the lower half of your walls and paint the top half your chosen colour. With the right combination of contrast and textures, you can eliminate the need for excessive wall art prints.
Let Plants Fill your Room
Everyone loves a little bit of nature, and having houseplants is a great way to demonstrate your love of the wild. You can incorporate floating shelves with cascading plants or a large potted plant into your decor. House plants are also a great way to promote positive energy in your home.
Faux Brick Wall
If you’re aiming for a more rustic look, a faux brick wall is a great way to decorate your room. Industrial-inspired decor has been the rage for quite some time now and works in pretty much any room in the house; plus, because it’s faux, it’s temporary, and it can be swapped out easily if you change your mind.
