Top 5 wall decorating ideas

Vinyl decals

Vinyl decals are a quick, easy and affordable way to upgrade any room. They stick on easily and can be removed without a hassle. Here you can be as subtle or bold as you want to be.



Many sees wallpapers as an old fashioned design element, but the latest design and technological advances means that wallpaper is making a come back. We suggest making one wall a focus point, while painting the other walls a matching colour.


Paint you focus wall a neutral colour and contrast it with a few mirrors or frames. The mirrors do not need to be the same size or design, as long as they compliment each other. The same can be said for frames. Leave them empty or fill them with your favourite photos.


This design trend would fit a home office or the kitchen the best as you could scribble notes or recipes on them. The important thing to remember if you attempt this, is that it darkens a room and you would need to offset that with splashes of colour or ensuring that enough natural light enters the room.
