There are many different types of wall decor that may be used to decorate a home, office, workshop, or other area in which decorations are needed. These include framed pictures, such as paintings or photographs, which may be purchased for a price, or even simply created by friends or family members. Additional types of decor, such as tapestries or stained glass wall hangings, are another option to add visual interest. More prominent types of wall decor, such as vinyl wall decals, can change the entire look of a room, and make it look as if the design is actually part of the paint, but can typically be easily removed when leaving.
Framed pictures are some of the most common and popular options for wall decor because so many different options exist. It is possible to give a room a modern or traditional look simply by changing the frame or the subject of the picture in the frame. Paintings, prints, or drawings are all options for this type of framed wall decor; some families choose to frame their child's artwork and create decor that way. Framed photographs of family and friends, or even nature images or landscapes, if someone enjoys photography, can also be excellent options for decorating the walls in a home.
Plenty of options for wall decor exist other than framed pictures, however. Tapestries or quilts make great wall decorations, often with sentimental meanings, and can help a room to feel warm and cozy. Stained glass wall hangings are another good option that are slightly different than framed pictures, and are available many different colors and designs to suit different decor. Kids often enjoy hanging posters on their walls as well, though it is important to use thumbtacks rather than tape, which can pull the paint off the walls.
Vinyl wall decals can be another great choice for wall decor. These are available in many different types of designs, such as nature images or inspirational quotes, among many others. They are typically applied directly to the wall and remain there until they are removed; they can usually only be used once, but are designed not to damage the paint during removal, making them a good choice for apartments. Though these are popular for creating murals in children's rooms, they may be used to add dramatic visual interest to any area in the home. There are many different designs, both pre-made and custom designed, available online.
