Applying wallpaper is one of the easiest ways to redo your walls – but don’t opt for the ordinary! Refresh your walls with an elegant metallic wallpaper that has a contrasting effect, be it with lights or opaque patterns.

2. Adhesive veneers

Nowadays there is no dearth of veneers to decorate your walls. Whether you prefer a simple grey surface, only borders, or detailing, your veneer of choice can be placed on the wall in a trice.

3. Vinyl pictures

There’s nothing like a huge vinyl picture to appeal to the heart of a child! It's easy to apply and dramatically changes the look of the room.

4. Psychedelic designs

If you're a lively person, a psychedelic style in vinyl pictures may be to your taste. Combine different colours, patterns or images for a mind-blowing effect! Credit for this ravishing living room goes to the interior designers and decorators at Rubenius Interiors.

5. Focussing attention

A striking or large accessory to create a focal point is a great idea for a wall! Observe how the television in the picture draws our attention away from any minor flaws that may be present.

6. Adding natural beauty

There’s nothing like a vertical garden with flowering creepers and plants to decorate your wall! Alternatively, wooden plaques with hanging plants make quite an impact too.

7. Quick fix with paint

If you’re a do-it-yourself kind of person and want to make a statement with only paint, give your wall a makeover with a funky design. Spreading paint in a circular motion with a sponge can give a unique look to any wall!

8. Natural laminates

Stone and wood are beautiful natural materials that add some real class! Instead of investing in the real thing, just buy stone or wood laminates and apply them to your wall in a flash.

9. Going three-dimensional

A 3D veneer makes for the ultimate modern look. Add lighting effects and simply blow your visitors away!

10. Innovative accessories

Accessorising your wall to create a striking visual effect can work just as well. Use beautiful paintings and artefacts that follow a particular style.
