For the perfect look and feel in every space, start with these wall décor ideas.

Are your walls bare because you just moved (or never really decorated)? Or is the wall décor you have outdated and collecting dust?

Either way, as you walk down the hallway, through the living room, and into the kitchen, your walls deliver one disappointment after another. You’re surrounded by missed opportunities. It’s time to decorate your walls in a way that shapes your experience in every space.

Your walls are each a canvas. How could your walls reflect something about you?

There are wall décor ideas for everyone from book collectors to animal lovers. Walk through your home with this list in-hand, and you’ll start to see what’s possible.

Living room wall décor ideas to entertain and unwind.

Your living room doubles as a social space and a sanctuary. It’s where you curl up on the couch to watch a movie with your family, and it’s where you sit down with friends when they visit.

What should living room wall décor be based on, then, if the space serves multiple purposes? Think of your living room as the environment that invites people in. Whatever the occasion, the living room is a place of congregation.

Choose your favorite living room wall décor idea and picture it as the backdrop to memories made in your living space.

  • Decorative shelving.

Most living rooms already have shelving, but you can add or update shelving as part of your decoration ambitions. Do you love floating shelves? Or do you have beautiful built-ins that could do with a full re-organization? Add or fill shelves with collections of like items (such as books, vases, or souvenirs).

  • Accent wall.

An accent wall is another kind of living room decoration. This can be as simple as one wall painted a bright color or updated with a 3D tactile wallpaper.

  • New sconce lights.

The trends in lighting fixtures in interior design today are amazing. Among the new selections, you have incredible decorative sconces to choose from. Install a few of these in the living room and you’ll add lighting and wall décor at the same time.

  • Living wall.

The idea of a “living wall” is part of biophilic interior design. Picture a wall filled with hanging vines or clingy ivy. Also called a “greenery wall,” living walls can be made with real or faux plants.

  • Built-in storage.

Built-in cabinets and shelving in living rooms often store books or media. Sometimes, they’re open to the room. Sometimes, they’re behind cabinet doors. Add a built-in to fill a wall with interesting artifacts while also adding needed storage.

  • Rolling ladder.

What about a rolling ladder installed on one wall? If you have tall bookshelves or floating shelves below the crown molding, a rolling ladder helps you access everything while doubling as attention-grabbing décor.

  • Textured paint.

Textured paint has ebbed in and out of fashion. There are many textures you can choose from, like orange peel and knockdown. Textured paint is best for the living room or bedroom because it’s a tricky surface to clean and gets too dirty too fast in the kitchen or bathroom.

  • Large hanging lighting.

A chandelier or light fixture is technically ceiling décor, but some of the most incredible selections today hang so low that they dangle in front of your walls like eye candy. This is part of the composition of your wall décor, too.

Bedroom wall décor ideas that bring joy and comfort.

Bedroom décor doubles as something personal and practical. It seems we never have enough closet space, so some bedroom wall décor ideas offer attractive storage solutions. Others showcase personal memorabilia like photos or keepsakes.

All bedroom wall décor provides some kind of comfort. You want to feel happy and relaxed in your space, and that means you want personalized décor and storage solutions that keep your bedroom from becoming cluttered.

Peruse these wall décor ideas and pick the one you can picture in your own space.

  • Photo gallery wall.

This is a classic wall décor idea, but it’s usually seen in living rooms or staircases. Consider hanging a gallery of photos in your bedroom. No matter how rough the day gets, you’re surrounded with happy memories at bedtime.

  • Constellations.

A bedroom is our safe and comfortable place to slumber, and bedroom decorations that depict nighttime are fitting. Make a constellation poster or build one on the wall with push pins, yarn, ribbon, or other craft materials.

  • Hanging hats.

If you have a hat collection (whether you use them often or not), you can use them in your bedroom décor. Install hooks, then make a 3D collage of them.

  • Exposed clothing rod.

If you’re short on closet space, install a clothing rod in front of a bare wall. Hang your favorite clothing on the rod, and you have quick access that doubles as decoration.

  • A great headboard.

A headboard can be so big that it fills a wall. Even if you add a smaller one instead, you can select it for the colors, textures, and patterns that you truly love to look at.

  • A DIY headboard.

In place of a headboard, you can hang headboard-like décor on the wall behind the bed. Imagine a rug or macramé hanging over your headrest.

  • Blanket ladder.

Blanket ladders are wooden ladders leaned against the wall whose rungs act as a place to hang bedding or towels. Stand one in the corner of your bedroom or a guest room where it doubles as décor and give guests a place to sling the comforter if they run warm.

  • Mounted pet storage.

If your pets spend a lot of time in your bedroom, make clever pet storage solutions part of your décor. A mounted scratching post for the cat or decorative hooks for your dog’s favorite chew toys could be the perfect bedroom décor idea.

Kitchen wall décor ideas perfect for time cooking and time together.

Families and friends tend to congregate in the kitchen. Gone are the days when the cook was confined to a closed kitchen two rooms away from the fun. Homes now favor open designs that give the kitchen a vantage point into the living and dining rooms.

Everyone else has easy access to the kitchen while the cook is at work, too. Kids sit at counters and do homework while partners lean against the fridge and chat. Guests, too, come in to visit while they swirl their glasses of wine.

The best kitchen wall décor ideas are perfect for the social nature of today’s kitchen, and they also avoid décor that could be easily damaged by humidity, vapors, and smoke. Which of these kitchen wall décor ideas can you picture in your home?

  • Mounted utensil storage.

Install hanging shelves or mounted utensil cups to keep your utensils within reach while they double as décor. If you have a set of like-colored utensils, this idea looks especially good.

  • Peel-and-stick wallpaper.

Peel-and-stick wallpaper is one of the conveniences of modern interior design. These wallpapers come in every imaginable color and texture and can be easily pulled and replaced to switch your decoration up.

  • World map.

A great, big map of the world, your state, or even your city can hang on the wall to entertain people when they visit you in the kitchen. Consider having all guests mark the places they’ve been worldwide.

  • The best backsplash.

Whether you already have a tile backsplash in your kitchen or not, installing a new one gives you a fresh look at your décor. Today’s tile selection gives you every size, format, color, and finish option.

  • Hanging herb garden.

A hanging herb garden can double as décor and something enormously useful for anyone who likes to cook. Nothing quite beats fresh herbs in home cooking.

  • Coloring wall.

Make a poster of outlines and shapes ready to color in or paint it directly onto your kitchen wall. Family and friends passing through can color it in with washable markers or paints, and you can occasionally wash the color off to start from scratch.

  • Upgrade your oven hood.

If you already have an oven hood but it’s an outdated pull-out design, an oven hood upgrade can double as new kitchen wall décor. Today’s oven hoods come in exquisite designs, from personalized colors to details in bronze, leather, and other quality materials.

  • Contrasting color corner.

Instead of one accent wall painted a fun color, you can paint two walls that meet in two colors that play well together.

Dining room wall décor ideas that enhance ambience.

So many of us eat meals in the kitchen that the dining room has become a space for special occasions. There’s the rare candlelit meal, and the annual round of holiday parties. Intimate birthday dinners are also held there, and bread is broken at the table when guests visit.

Dining room wall décor ideas enhance these occasions with the perfect ambience. They provide a backdrop to the photos and memories we take with us once the meal is done.

  • Hanging plates.

Maybe you last saw this at Grandma’s house, but with the boom of maximalism in today’s interiors, the fine China is on display again on dining room walls. Be sure you know what you’ll put in its place when you pull the plates down to eat off of them.

  • Candle sconces.

Today’s sconce lighting designs are exquisite, but there’s a special magic to an antique candle sconce instead. Install a couple of these on the dining room wall and see how it sets the mood.

  • Floating shelf.

A single floating shelf can give you space to put keepsakes or photos out. What souvenirs or personal items could start conversation during dinner?

  • Lighting as décor.

The chandelier in a dining room is sometimes described as the “eye candy” of the space, and decorative sconces add beautiful décor, too. There are still other more decorative kinds of lighting to consider, like LED strips installed in a geometric shape or strings of lights with oversized bulbs.

  • More molding.

Interior molding acts as wall, floor, and ceiling decoration. Install or update your molding to a style you love.

  • Selfie wall.

Make your very own selfie wall for all the guests who pass through. Imagine a faux brick backdrop or a greenery wall with strings of lights peeking through the foliage. You can hang a few hooks and leave props to inspire people, too.

  • Bright corners.

Pick a corner of your dining room. Install a long, hanging light in that corner and a mirror on the wall next to it. The light will bounce off the surface and create what’s called a “bright corner.” The ambience it lends to dinner is divine.

  • Statuette nooks.

Install a nook in one of the walls of your dining room. That nook can be custom-made for a statuette or personal artifact you adore. Add some custom lighting for good measure, and your dining room has just been upgraded to a new level of elegance.

Bathroom wall décor ideas for spa-grade serenity.

Bathroom wall décor ideas are tricky. You could buy prints of sandals on a beach, or hang a sign that says “relax,” but does that say anything about you?

Your bathroom is where you start and end each day. It should be a place where you feel totally at peace. The following bathroom wall décor ideas help everyone from nature lovers to artists create the spa-like environment they deserve in their main bath.

You can also use these bathroom wall décor ideas to impress guests who pass through the powder room. Your good taste will be undeniable.

  • Hanging or mounted plants.

Easy-care plants like succulents can be mounted in rings on the walls or be hung from the ceilings. Greenery will help the room feel fresher, which is something every bathroom can use.

  • Mixed media gallery wall.

There are many places you can hang a photo gallery, but how about a mixed media gallery for the bathroom? Include photos, prints, fabrics, tassels, and posters. The mix of texture and themes gives you something to look at in the bathroom other than your phone.

  • Prints from children's books.

Some of the sweetest images to hang on bathroom walls are poster prints of animals or children’s book characters. Their sweetness goes a long way in a room devoted to comfort and relaxation.

  • Clever towel storage.

You can always use more towel storage. Installing decorative hooks or a series of hooks that turn hanging towels into a full-wall design is a way to add storage and decorate at the same time.

  • LED lighting around your cabinets.

One of the most popular lighting solutions in bathroom renovations is toe tick lighting at the bottom of cabinets. This same idea can be used to line cabinets in frames of LED lights as a more spectacular form of decoration.

  • A great vanity mirror.

Whether you have a vanity seat already or not, installing a new vanity mirror can completely change the look of a space. You can select a decorative mirror based on its frame, its size, or integrated LED lighting for perfectly even illumination when you get ready every day.

  • More tile.

Tile isn’t just for the bathroom floor or shower. Imagine an accent wall full of tile, or a tile backsplash behind the sink. Tile today gives you every option of color, texture, format, and finish for your bathroom walls.

  • Pegboard storage.

Pegboard storage is a clever and convenient way to organize the small toiletries that make your bathroom feel cluttered. Pegboard hooks and mounts can be moved on a whim, so you’ll always have the perfect storage for your daily routine.

Office wall décor ideas to transform your walls—and your workday.

Office walls are notoriously bland. In warehouse-style office floors with fields of cubicles, the only break in the expansive white walls are the doorways to conference rooms. Then, inside each cubicle cell, personal decoration is pinned to fabric walls but limited to calendars, meeting notes, a token photo, and meeting reminders.

Some employers put in more effort to make the work environment colorful and pleasant. Some even paint walls and hang artwork that psychology says will make employees happier. There are also millions of people who work from home now and look for office wall décor ideas for home offices.

The tiny space we work in is where we spend most of our waking hours, and the decoration ideas you choose for your office are fundamental to productivity and happiness. Peruse these office wall décor ideas and imagine how your favorites could be combined in your perfect office.

  • Whiteboard.

You can mount a large whiteboard, chalk board, or cork board as a place to leave notes. A whiteboard has the advantage that it’s magnetic, so you can fix a mosaic of magnets to it so that the board isn’t only filled with notes.

  • Wall calendar.

I f it’s an oversized calendar, that’s even better. To make your wall calendar a genuine part of office décor, think about making your own monthly calendar posters with the colors, images, fonts, and graphics you find inspiring.

  • Mount something that's otherwise in the way.

Think of something that gets in the way because there’s no convenient place to store it, like a bike or a guitar. Instead of leaning it in a corner, mount it to your office wall as decoration. If you mount it on hooks, it will still be easy to get down whenever you use it.

  • Hero wall.

Think of someone who inspires you, for example a fictitious hero like Wonder Woman or your favorite athlete or author. Make a “hero wall” with imagery of that person or what inspires you about that person. This decoration idea can have a powerful impact on your attitude during the workday.

  • Install new windows.

Windows can count as decoration, too. If you work in a home office that’s due for a remodel “make-over,” consider installing larger windows. If you have one window looking out at the yard, it could be turned into a set of French doors to turn your office into an indoor-outdoor work oasis.

  • Vision board.

Make a vision board with printed images and collage-style cut-outs, or a digital poster vision board. A vision board for the office could have something to do with work, or you could simply pick a vision board idea that makes you happy.

  • City poster.

Hang a city map poster in your office. Maybe it’s a map of the metro network in a city you love. Maybe it’s a map of all the breweries in the city where you live. Whether you use the map for work planning or not, this office décor helps you feel connected.

  • Statement desk.

A piece of furniture against the wall forms part of the office wall décor, too. Find yourself a desk with the style, color, or details you love to look at.

Hallway wall décor ideas that help you stop and smell the roses.

We always pass through hallways with a destination in mind. Does that mean hallway wall decoration should be given little thought? Perhaps not. With hallway wall décor ideas that reflect something about your personality, values, or history, the hallway can become a mini-gallery inviting everyone to stop and look.

Because of their narrow structure, we can also get quite close to the wall decoration in hallways. This means that unique hallway ideas like framed antique letters can be read in detail when passers-by lean in.

  • Mirrors.

Mirrors with beautiful frames, big or small, are beautiful décor for any space. Hallways benefit most of all because they bounce light and brighten the space while making the hallway look longer or wider (depending where they’re hung).

  • Framed family letters.

Do you have antique family letters from grandparents or distant cousins? These types of artifacts can be framed to make for fascinating hallway décor.

  • Paper lights.

Hang or mount a paper lantern (whether purchased or made by you) to give your hallway a soft and beautiful glow. The color of paper will alter the color of the light, and you can mix and match colors over the length of your hallway.

  • Wall hooks.

If your hallway serves as a landing space from an exterior door, hooks can be decorative and practical. Line several wall hooks you love one after the other. They break up the expansive wall and give everyone a place to hang things when they come in.

  • Solitary book displays.

Imagine a series of small shelves that each hold only one book, the tomes leaned against the wall to show off their covers. Coffee table books aren’t only for the living room, it turns out you can use them as hallway decoration, too.

  • Quote collages.

If you love quotes, you can pick your favorites and make them into posters or a collage. People will stop to pick quotes out on their way down the hallway. Maybe they’ll discover a new one every time they pass through.

  • Statement side table.

A hallway can also feature a statement table set to one side, especially by doors where people come in with things they need to set down. Side tables double as wall décor in addition to their place on the floor plan.

  • Art gallery.

I f you have artwork you love, why not turn your hallway into an art gallery? You can make little plaques to describe each piece. The artwork can be pieces you acquired or pieces of yours. You can even make a gallery of poster prints of famous works.

Large wall décor ideas for style at scale.

Some spaces call for big décor. Some of the best large wall décor ideas are DIY projects, too, so large doesn’t have to mean costly or complex.

Large wall décor typically goes in extra-large spaces. If you fill a smaller wall with large décor, it can make the room feel smaller. If it’s a cozy look you’re after, however, these large-scale ideas can work just about anywhere.

If you have the perfect wall you’d like to use one of these ideas on, but décor is already on it, consider repurposing items elsewhere to make room for one of these great ideas.

  • Large-scale artwork.

This is the classic option for large-scale wall décor. If you’re a fan of art and acquire a piece you love, hang it in the center of an open wall.

  • Hang a beautiful fabric.

Maybe you have a decorative rug that can be hung like a tapestry, or a quilt that’s been in your family for generations. Alternatively, you could hang decorative silks or linens.

  • Paint a mural.

It's said that a blank wall is your “canvas,” and in this case, that’s literal. Paint a mural or hire someone to paint one.

  • Shiplap paneling.

Shiplap paneling is decoration in itself and you can put more décor on top of it, too. Shiplap is usually installed horizontally, but you can play with designs and install it vertically or diagonally instead.

  • Game wall.

Imagine a Tic-Tac-Toe board painted on a wall with little shelves to stand each “X” or “O” on. You can do the same with a chess or checkers board. A game wall is great in living and family rooms because of their social nature.

  • Custom poster gallery.

Make custom posters that you can hang gallery-style on a wall. Posters featuring art, photos, and anything else are fast and easy to make in Adobe Express—no experience required.

  • Home bar.

Install rows of floating shelves to make a home bar for all your favorite bottles and beverages.

  • Flags.

Hang full-sized flags to fill a wall. Maybe they’re from countries your family hails from or sports teams you follow. Consider hanging them vertically so you can line several up together.

Holiday wall décor ideas to add cheer to the season.

Holiday decoration like Christmas wall décor ideas revolve around a set color palette and recurring themes every year. If you’re a little tired of the same-old, consider these fresh ideas.

Waking up and getting ready every day in a home adorned with holiday décor is one of the top sources of joy during the holiday season. The more personalized your decorations are, the more it will inspire this happy feeling.

The added perk of the best Christmas décor ideas is that you can take a photo of your decorated wall to use on your holiday greeting cards or use it as a backdrop for the annual family picture.

  • Holiday photo gallery.

Some of your favorite family photos are holiday photos, and they retain more magic if they come out only once a year.

  • Indoor wreaths.

Traditional garland wreaths can be hung indoors, too, but how about a bronze loop with mistletoe or holiday cards clipped to it, or a wreath made of scarves and mittens.

  • Paper snowflakes.

Make a family event of cutting paper snowflakes and other shapes to hang at the holidays. With a string of lights above them, this wall décor is especially beautiful at night.

  • Garland molding.

If your home has crown molding, cover it with garlands this year. If your home doesn’t have molding, garlands can give you that pleasure for the whole holiday season.

  • Custom banner.

Do you have family coming to stay at your home during the holidays? Make a banner with a holiday quote or greeting to hang for their arrival. You can make one in minutes with Adobe Express.

  • Slipper baskets.

Set a basket next to the wall or mount a few baskets by the front door. Use the baskets to store slippers people can wear as soon as they come in. Snowy shoes won’t leave slush on the floors, and everyone’s feet will be festive and comfortable.

  • Decorative tree branches.

Collect tree branches from the yard and see what you can make. Maybe a single, sturdy branch can be wrapped in green garland or mistletoe. Small, twiggy branches can be bent into wreaths.

  • Card display.

T he holiday cards you receive can be used as décor, too. Clear a shelf or install a new floating shelf to set cards on. You can also clip cards to a string of lights stretched between two corners of a room.

Tips to put wall décor ideas to good use.

If you have more ideas for wall décor than you have walls, look through these tips to put the best ideas to use in your own home or office.

Exercise: Do you prioritize first impressions or personal preference?

Everyone’s priorities in their homes are different. Here’s how to identify yours:

Ask yourself what you want people to feel and think when they see your wall décor.
Then, ask yourself how often other people will see that décor.
If you don’t entertain often, or the people who come over have similar taste to your own, favor what you like above any thought of first impressions.
If you do have guests often, especially for business or large social events, consider which rooms you can personalize more and which could favor décor that promotes the impression you want to leave people with.

Adobe Express can help.

Adobe Express has templates and customization tools to put your favorite wall décor ideas to work. If you want to use wall décor ideas in cards, letters, posters, banners, collages, or other creative projects, Adobe Express makes it as simple as picking a template and personalizing it, or making your own idea with easy-to-use tools. Whatever message you want to transmit, Adobe Express brings it to life, no experience required.
