Bare to Bliss; Easy Ideas to DIY Empty Wall Space


In an effort to make your house a home and turn a blah space into a chic and cosy retreat, one of the simplest changes you can make is getting rid of that empty wall.

Empty wall spaces offer endless possibilities, and you don’t even need to spend a fortune to change the way your whole room feels. From framing prints you love to potted plants, here are our favorite ways to DIY your empty wall space and turn your room from bare to bliss…

1. Create a Gallery Space


You don’t need to splash the cash and become a serious art collector to enjoy images on the wall. Collect up your favourite postcards, drawings, and small prints and get them framed. Buy your frames from Ikea or even hit the thrift stores and buy old paintings and use those frames on your own pictures.

If you want to bring a splash of colour into your eclectic gallery wall, you can even paint the frames in gorgeous block colours or whatever shade suits your space. Hanging different sized frame prints is a great way of bringing a personal charter to a blank wall space.

Here’s where to get it:

Ikea for cheap and cheerful photo frames in different styles

Etsy for every frame imaginable, including some cool creative ones too

Another pro tip? We say raid the local thrift stores and antiques to find vintage frames that rock.

2. Hang Photo and Art Shelves


Hang some floating shelves on your empty wall space and print out and frame your favourite photos. As most of our photos are kept in digital format these days, we rarely have the pleasure of looking at them. By printing them out, not only can you put them on display but you can create a magical memory wall of all your favourite people and life moments. Add a bright plant or two and you have a cosy homely space in seconds.

Here’s where to get it:

Urban Billy is for those who want handmade artisan style shelves

Walmart is where we go for budget screw and fix bargains

You can also just hit up your local timber or good yard and see if they can sort you out with some scrap planks if you are handy.

3. Drape Fine Fabric


Sometimes a swathe of fine fabric can be equally as glorious as a piece of art (not to mention a lot more affordable). Find a fabric you love and hang it as a wall tapestry to break up space. Whether it’s a piece you picked up from your far-flung travels or simply something you grabbed at a haberdashery, the aim remains the same – showcase it.

Here’s where to get it:

Etsy have a whole host of fabrics for you to choose from

Mood Fabrics have a great selection too
