How to Decorate Tall Walls November 24 2015, 0 Comments

Whether they are in a foyer, your family room, or even a bedroom, the soaring ceiling that come with tall walls look fantastic and create such an open, airy feeling to your home, but when it comes to decorating the adjacent walls, most people are left scratching their heads. Thankfully, we found some tips on what to and not to do when decorating those walls that go on forever.

  • Use large scale art -- Gallery walls and oversized art are probably the most common solution to fill up those tall walls. A large grouping of art or photographs are a great way to fill up the space.
  • Add trim -- Adding trim to your wall is also a great way to break-up the vastness of those soaring, double height walls often found in Foyers and great rooms.
  • Use color and texture -- Here, panels of trim are filled with grasscloth. Printed wallpaper would also look great and create the feel of an art piece.
  • Hang a mirror -- Mirrors are a great alternative to hanging art. Try a large oversized mirror, or a grouping of smaller mirrors.
  • Install shelving -- If you are a book lover, consider adding some custom library shelves and make that open space functional.
  • Distract -- And lastly, a great way to sole the big empty wall syndrome is to distract the eye AWAY from the wall by adding dramatic floor to ceiling curtains, or an oversized light fixture.
