When thinking about wall treatments for your home, go big or go home! Wall treatments are your opportunity to make a statement, set a tone and create a wow factor and there are so many ways to accomplish this.

 

Of course, you always have the option to buy a classic piece of art, which is great if you find something that you love, but there are a few alternatives that are truly unique (you’ll be the only house on the street with these gems!).

A large and punchy mirror can be beautiful and tends to add light and the illusion of more space to a room. When installing a mirror it’s important to consider where people will be positioned in the room so you can assess if the mirror will make people more or less comfortable in your space.

 

Vintage, or vintage-inspired wallpaper like this awesome Marimekko print, can really create an environment. In this case, the flower-power throwback is accomplished in a tasteful and up-to-date fashion to give this little girl room a funky, happy and boho feel. An easy and do-it-yourself wall treatment solution is to frame vintage album covers or posters. You can find some great, artistic options on sites such as Etsy or eBay. When choosing your album or poster grouping, consider a theme, genre or colour way to achieve a cohesive look.

 

Vintage tapestries or any type of fiber art can be difficult to find. This is the type of wall treatment you should always be on the lookout for. When you do find something that excites you, don’t hesitate…purchase it!
