10 Affordable Wall Decor Ideas For Your Home
If you see a reason to beautify your body, why leave the walls bare in your home? Dull walls do only one thing, make your room look dull and boring, well two things, and no one wants that. A big, windowless wall can be the perfect canvas for creative decor ideas, but artwork isn’t the only way of dressing up a dull wall, there are so many ways you can beautify your wall. But really, who says art has to mean anything, or require any creativity whatsoever? Art is the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, that is beautiful or that expresses important ideas or feelings, so exp ress yourself in whatever way you are comfortable with, as long as it is beautiful and make sense to you. So how can you put life to that boring windowless wall, without breaking the bank? Whether it’s wall decorations for your bedroom, your living room, or DIY wall decor ideas, we’ve got you covered.
Here are 10 affordable wall decor ideas for your home
1. Family frame
You were probably expecting something other than family pictures, but this is one of the inexpensive ways to adorn your walls. When thinking family frames, think outside the frame. Use picture frames that are unique or convert something into a frame and have fun with it.

2. Use Gold Frames
Gold coloured frames have a way of making the pictures in them look expensive and giving the room they are hung in a luxurious feel. Mix-and-match your favourite pieces of art, regardless of style or era, and display them using similarly gilded frames, even your pictures.
If you are a lover of flowers, you can take pictures of your favourite bloom and hang it on your walls. You’d be surprised how beautiful close-up photos of flowers can be. Enlarge them and have them printed on canvas and frame them crisp white frames and see your walls come to life.
One of the easiest ways to dress up a blank wall is by using mirrors. You can decide to hang them up or just prop a mirror against the wall. Mirrors have the superpowers to open up a space, make it look larger and beautiful.

For the book lover like me, having a minimalist bookshelf on your blank walls can be a great way to add personality to the room and also store your books.Use the bookshelf to display a few of your favourite books and objects yet maintaining a modern look.
6. Jewellery Box
This is one wall decor idea I find quite useful. It can be a struggle digging through and finding one piece of jewellery, save yourself the stress and just hang it. If jewellery looks dazzling on you, it makes sense that it could dress up walls, too. Here is how to do it, Get a frame and back it up with fiberboard covered in pretty paper. You can use old cabinet knobs and push pins to hang necklaces and bracelets. For your earrings, secure two lengths of ribbon horizontally across a frame, using thumbtacks to reinforce it, giving your earrings and brooches room.
Maps can add a bit of personality to your wall, if you’re lucky enough to score a big one (like the pull-down kind your teacher used in geography class), use it. And you can even pin up places you’ve been to or want to visit.

8. Split a photo
If you are looking for a minimalist yet dramatic adornment for your wall, then split an image. You can split a picture into three canvases to make a dramatic statement no one will be able to keep their eyes off.
9. Prop up a ladder
This wall decor idea is just ideal for people that cannot stress themselves because of decoration. You can place a wooden ladder against the wall paired with an artwork, giving an instantly breezy personality to an otherwise drab wall.
Using an iconic wallpaper can add a splash of personality to an already boring wall. With so many wallpaper design and prints, you have numerous options to choose from to beautify your wall.
