If you’re sick and tired of the same old white walls or painfully fashionable floral wallpapers that everyone seems to have in their home. It might be time to try something different; something that your neighbors won’t have already thought of.

Here are some rather unique and unusual ways to decorate your interior walls:

Design Your Own Wallpaper

If you like wallpaper. But you don’t like the fact that the stuff you can buy at the store is so samey, why not design and print your own wallpaper? There are numerous companies online that will allow you to do this, and it means you can really be creative with your home décor. You could use your children’s artwork, favorite photos or your own sketches to create something totally unique to you.

Peel and Stick Wood Planks

If you like the warm and cozy country look, peel and stick barn wood planks could be the perfect solution for you. Not only are they very affordable, and every easy to apply to the wall, but you can use them to create interesting patterns and designs above and beyond the typically wooden wall cladding you see in so many homes.

Fill Them with Fabric

Not many people think of covering their walls with fabric rather than wallpaper or paint, but it’s a brilliant way to create a unique look that none of your friends will have in their homes. All you have to do is find a fabric you like, order a lot of it and then starch it. Once it’s starch, it will remain smooth, and you can use the starch to roll the fabric onto the walls. You might have to use a few thumbtacks to hold it place while it’s wet, but once it’s dried, it will be stuck fast and, more importantly, it’ll look fantastic.

Wow ‘Em with Washi Tape

If you’re looking for a unique wall solution which is affordable and easy to achieve, look no further than washi tape. This origami paper inspired tape comes in a vast array of colors and styles, making it perfect for children’s rooms, and it can be used to create pretty striped walls in very little time. You literally just stick the tape to the walls, and you’re done.

If stripes aren’t your thing, you can use the tape to create all manner of interesting designs, providing you have a little bit of artistic ability, anyway!


Speaking of origami, a good way to spice up a plain white wall is by creating lots of origami flowers, birds or animals and then sticking them to the wall. If you want a subtle look, you can just add a few to one corner, or if you want something with more of a wow factor, you can create a whole feature wall of your own origami creations!

I hope this has inspired you to think outside the box when decorating your home. Walls don’t have to be bland, and they don’t have to be just like everyone else’s – you just have to be brave enough to break the mold and do something different!
