Wall Decorations - Mattress Store Idaho Falls

Is there a “best way” when it comes to decorating wall space?

Should the wall art match the furniture and other décor items in your home?

These are topics that cause some stress for most of us but here are a few thoughts for you to consider. While there is a risk of being overly coordinated and too “matchy-matchy”, your wall art will pop and have an impact if it is supported by the furniture and other décor items in your home. Here are some ideas of ways to accent and add interest to your room. Remember of course, that the final product needs to be something that you love!

Underline it!

Size, shape, and color!

Rather than just hanging a mirror, you can take multiple pieces to decorate a larger space by arranging your décor within a larger shape. For instance, creating a large square by using multiple pieces of different sizes, shapes and colors.

Off set items!

And one final tip: if you lay out your wall placement on the floor first and get it exactly like you want it on the wall, it will eliminate the need to move screws or hanging devices multiple times. Take a photo of your design and then put it up and enjoy your décor! While there are other ways to decorate your wall space we hope you find these helpful!
