While blank walls can add balance to our interiors, they are often just a great opportunity to create a unique decoration. They're really ideal places to tell the story of your life and can give guests a clue as to who you are and what you're interested in. If you've been avoiding arranging empty wall space because you just don't know what to use, now's your chance to get inspired. Fortunately, there is no shortage of ideas for wall arrangements. The following ideas will help you turn boring, bare walls into charming galleries, pretty collections and distinctive accents in your interior.
Photos can form different shapes

1. family gallery
It's the kind of memory wall that brings back the best memories of a lifetime. You can arrange the photos in the same sizes and evenly spaced, create a specific shape out of them, or simply arrange them in different directions, creating an artistic disorder. As for mounting, you can use pins. If you don't want to damage the wall, a special adhesive mounting compound will be a good idea. Now all you need to do is to choose your favorite pictures and print them! We guarantee that every guest will look at the gallery with delight!

2. clip-on placemats
If your desk is swamped with piles of papers. Bills, grocery lists, receipts, notes to yourself, photos cut out of magazines - nothing has its place. Maybe it's time to get that pile of clippings under control. Instead of letting the papers pile up, in which you can easily get lost, divide them into categories, attach them to pads with clipsand nail them to the wall. It sounds extravagant, but when you arrange several such pads in some sort of sequence, it's quite an aesthetically pleasing and practical interior design idea.

3. perforated wall panels
This is a great solution especially in the kitchen, office or children's room. Pegboards are a really practical solution for providing more storage without taking up a lot of space. Since they are mounted on the wall, they thus become an unusual decoration. Such perforated panels can be made of wood or metal. Unique color blocks will give this practical solution a touch of personality!

5 Gallery of plates
If your best tableware is too beautiful to eat dinner in, or you have decorative antique plates hidden in a cabinet, make a wall gallery of them. Choose several different sizes and designs, and measure the position of each piece on the wall before you hammer in the nails. Make sure you have the proper spacing. Such ornaments are often works of art so we can use special stands or homemade mounts attached to the back of the plate to fix them. This is most important if we do not want to damage them.
Macramé gives the interior a warm, pleasant character
6 - Macramé on the wall
The fashion for macramé is back and is not going anywhere. If you want to bring a boho style accent to your interior, this is the idea for you! This artistic form brings plenty of texture and charm to a space, whether you choose a flowerbed or a macramé painting hanging on the wall.

7. wallpaper made of old newspapers
This one slogan can mean a lot. A decorative wall can be made of ordinary modern newspapers. However, if you are a fan of the communist or vintage period, you can use newspapers or old books from that period. In either case, you can choose only the interesting pages and arrange them so that there is something to read about. Instead of newspapers on the wall you can put old maps, collecting them is quite a treat, but the great effect is brick!
Such a wall is a real bulletin board

8. blackboard paint
Another very expressive and practical design element. It will also work well as a dark accent that will add character to your interior.

Whiteboard paint is one option, and magnetic paint is also available on the market, which is also an interesting solution. Now you can inform other household members about everything, they will certainly notice what you want to communicate!
