Decorating a half wall can seem like quite a challenge, but by choosing the right combination of lighting and art you’ll quickly find yourself with an attractive space on which to showcase your favorite photographs or paintings. That’s why we’ve put together this handy guide to decorating your half wall, which will help you choose the best accent pieces and make your home feel that much more complete. These ideas will help you make the most of a half wall and decorate it with style and personality. Whether you’re looking to divide spaces or display your favorite pieces, this guide will help you make the most of your half wall!
1) Add Railings
Decorating your walls is an easy way to spruce up your space and make it feel warm and inviting. First, you need to figure out where you want the line of the ledge or shelf (the top edge) of the half wall. This should be on the same side as your entranceway because it will give you enough space for entry and exit into the room. The height of this ledge should be about 3 feet from the floor, which is high enough for someone to place their hands on it for support when walking past it but low enough that people can’t easily reach over and grab things from inside.
2) DIY Beadboard
Decorating the empty space behind a couch or in between two pieces of furniture is easy and inexpensive. All you need is some wood, paint, and some beads. You can find beadboard at any home improvement store for about $5 per sheet. I found mine at Home Depot for $4.50 each. Depending on the size of your space, you will want two sheets – one for the back and one for the front. The back sheet should be cut so that it’s 8-10 inches taller than your couch or other piece of furniture in order to create an even top edge, so measure accordingly before cutting both sheets down from the full size boards they come in.
3) DIY Walnut Cap
This is the perfect way to put your business’ stamp on your space. We started by painting the entire room white, and then we bought two sheets of plywood from Home Depot for $15 each. The first sheet was cut into three pieces: one 3/4 thick piece that became the top board, one 1/2 thick piece that became the middle board and one 5/8 thick piece that will become the bottom board. We also bought some walnut boards from Home Depot in varying thicknesses (3/8, 1/2, 5/8) and lengths (3 feet, 4 feet). We used one of our existing furniture legs as a guide for cutting all of them down to size with our jigsaw.
4) Catch-All Bowl
A catch-all bowl is an amazing way to use space. It’s essentially a large bowl that you place in the center of the room and fill with anything that doesn’t have a designated home. This can be things like books, remotes, keys, or even shoes. Whatever you want! There are so many different ways to dress up a catch-all bowl depending on your style and preference. For example: if you’re looking for something more rustic, try using natural materials such as twigs, rocks, and branches; if you’re looking for something more refined, try using white shells or even marbles; if you’re looking for something more tribal, try using beads or seashells.
5) DIY Modern Look
This post is about the 5 things you need to know before starting your DIY modern look. The first thing you need to know is what type of paint you want, and what color will go well with the furniture in your home. Second, measure the space that you are painting so that it doesn’t end up being too small or too large. Third, take your time when painting so as not to make any mistakes. Fourth, think about what type of art would go best on your walls and where it would be most aesthetically pleasing. Fifth, after all is said and done make sure that everything looks good and has dried before adding anything else.
6) Decorative Brick Wall Panels
Decorative brick panels create an outdoor look and feel that is perfect for patios, walkways, driveways and more. Panels are durable and can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications. They come in many different styles, colors, shapes and sizes so you can find the perfect one that matches your needs.
A good first step when deciding on what type of panel you want is to decide on the design of your space. If you have an area that is all white bricks with no mortar then it may be best to avoid a panel with mortar since it will stand out too much in this setting. A plainer design with less detail would work better in this scenario because it won’t distract from the walls themselves.
7) Half Wall Counter
A half wall is the perfect way to add storage, display items, or just create a divide in your kitchen or living space. Half walls are great for hiding clutter and creating separation, but with so many options out there it can be hard to decide how you want your space to look. One of the easiest ways to create an amazing look for your space is by adding some sleek and sophisticated shelves. Shelves are easy to install and come in many different shapes and sizes, which means you can find one that will fit perfectly into any style room. For example, if you’re looking for something that has more of an industrial feel then distressed shelving might be what you’re looking for.
Shelf space is essential for any room in your home, and the lack of it can be detrimental to the organization of your space. A simple solution that doesn’t require removing anything from the walls is by creating shelves with nothing more than some wood and brackets. Check out these five DIY shelf ideas for small spaces!
Add shelving where there isn’t any! Use brackets, nails, and boards to create an instant shelf. If you want something a little more sturdy, use bricks or cinderblocks as your base instead of just wood or boards. You can also stack two or three brackets on top of each other for a taller shelf.
9) DIY Board and Batten
Board and batten, also known as wainscoting, is an easy way to add character and dimension to any room. The project we’re going to walk through today will show you how to do it yourself, step by step.
The first thing you want to do is measure the height of your wall so that you know how high up the boards need to be.
The next thing you’ll want is a large plank of wood for each board, enough screws, and some spacers or pieces of scrap wood if needed. You will also need a drill, saw and paint brush.
Once you’ve measured the space, use your saw to cut lengths of wood that are slightly shorter than what you need–this ensures there’s no cutting off too much later on. It’s better to err on the side of caution when cutting anything! Next use screws to attach one board at a time with plenty of space in between each one. You can place them horizontally or vertically depending on what look you’re trying to achieve (the space in between should always be equal). Once all the boards are screwed into place use your saw and make cuts down both sides about 3/4 inch from where they meet at the top–this is called chamfering.
10) Kitchen-Dining Room Divider
A kitchen-dining room divider is the perfect way to divide these two spaces in an open floor plan. It’s also a great way to create additional storage space and provide more privacy. A kitchen-dining room divider can be as simple or as fancy as you want it to be, but it needs to fit with the overall design of your home. Choose materials that are durable enough for both rooms and strong enough not to sag under the weight of plates, pans and other utensils. You’ll also need adequate shelving on either side of the divider so that you can store items such as dishes, cookware, serving trays and table linens.
Decorating your home is an exciting process! It can also be overwhelming if you don’t know where to start. Luckily, there are tons of ways to spruce up your space and make it feel like yours. One way is by creating a focal point with art or photos. Another is with color; choose one or two colors as the main accent color and then use them throughout the room in pillows, lamps, and decorations. If you want more ideas for how to style your walls, read on! 1) Choose what will go on the wall first. You’ll need: art or photos that are framed, ready-made artwork (framed prints), shelves, table, mirrors. Once you have that figured out, you’ll need paint (choose any color!), primer (for those glossy surfaces!), paint brushes, painter’s tape (to keep paint from going places), chalkboard spray paint (if desired), stencils, craft knife and mat to cut shapes out of cardboard boxes and anything else needed depending on what mediums you’ll be using. 2) Lay down some newspapers or old sheets over your flooring to protect it from spills or drips before starting your project.
