Adding Character to Your Walls
Start with the base

Creating a feature wall
It’s common to make one wall different from the rest for character and depth. Paint a mural or choose a different color so that it stands out.
Installing wall lights
Make a statement with a neon sign or install tasteful wall light fixtures to bring some light into the room.
Filling your wall with memories
Decorate your walls with framed pictures of friends and family.
Hanging paintings on the wall
If you like an artist or a certain painting, hang it on your wall to enjoy when you are home and to share with guests.
