A recurrent home interior idea is to use artwork or other decorations on your wall as a means of beautifying a room and creating a treat for the eyes. However, this is more of a suggestion than a hard-and-fast rule and you may be surprised to learn that there can be impressive aesthetic value to keeping bare walls. While making use of blank space may not be for every taste, it can be worthwhile to at least investigate possible ways that bare walls can enhance your home's appearance.
Bare Walls: Why They Work
There are three primary ways that bare walls can help contribute, rather than detract, from a room's style and various home interior ideas.
If your room has a doorway that shows the wall of an adjoining room, you can make use of bare walls to "double-up" on a single piece of art. By placing large artwork or a similar decorative piece on the wall in the next room and keeping the wall where the door is located bare, you draw attention to the art even from the other room. This gives visitors a feeling of anticipation as they move from room to room.
It's important not to overload the eyes when decorating a room. Consequently, leaving your walls bare allows you to indulge in more textured, varied pieces elsewhere in the decor. If you feel that one of your rooms might be "too much", try removing decorations and artwork from the walls and see if that evens things out.
Let Size Thrive
If you have large couches, mirrors, or other adornments or furniture, bare walls can let visitors really feel the size of these pieces. By using bare walls, you let bigger items become the main focus and emphasize their size to the viewer.
Floor Tiles That Complement Bare Walls
Your walls and flooring naturally go together so it's in your interest to make sure your choice of floor tile can complement your walls when you go for the bare look. There are countless styles of floor tile to choose from depending on the image you want to project. For instance, the Hydraulic line can be used to give an old-style appeal reminiscent of 19th-century France while Tabula can create a smooth, genuine wood look in the form of elegant porcelain. You should also decide on whether you want to use traditional square or the more unique hexagonal or octagonal tile as a way of delivering an extra bit of personalization. Since tile can come in a variety of materials from porcelain to ceramic to glass to vinyl and rubber, there is no room in your house that can't benefit from the right floor-wall combination.
