5 Incredible Wall Design Ideas For Your Home

Custom Bar Wall Design

A wall is a blank canvas. Literally. One can do so many things to a wall and painting just scratches the surface! Creating an accent wall in a room is a great wall design idea for your home. One can create wall designs in wood, with wood, or even in 3D! 

These days, it’s so easy to add effects to walls and there are so many different options. From wall niches and archways to very creative 3D feature walls, the limit is possibly your imagination. 

What’s great is that these designs are meant to fit in with the style of your current space. So if your house is ultra-modern, there are wall design options that will complement that perfectly. On the other hand, if your home is more rustic, there are equally as many options that will suit that style. Let’s take a look at some great ideas for your home.

Wall Designs For Any Bedroom

Accent Walls Are A Must

A bedroom can be both functional and beautiful. Just because you don’t spend the majority of your time in bed (even though you may want to), it’s definitely a great space to decorate.

Possibly the best and easiest way to add drama to your bedroom is to add texture and shape to the wall behind your bed. Gone are the days when you had to have a standard bedpost that matched your end tables. It’s time to get creative and have fun with the design in your bedroom. 

Play around with shape. There are many 3D options you can incorporate for a truly unique wall design, from wall niches to curved shelves to custom made panels, the only limit is your imagination. 

The wall behind your bed can be so much more than simply a wall. If you really want to get creative, why not mix a wall niche with creative paint or wallpaper, add in some downlighting, and boom! You’ve got one seriously creative, beautiful accent wall. This is one of the best wall design ideas for your home as it can truly transform the look and feel of your bedroom. 

Wall Design Ideas For A Kid’s Bedroom

Decorating the walls in a kid’s room can often have limited longevity. But, if you choose carefully, you can add elements and colors that will last long after the little ones start school - meaning you no longer have to decorate every few years as the kids outgrow a color or style. Keeping the color palette neutral provides longevity in style.

If your kids share a room, creating a personalized space can be quite challenging. Splitting a room down the middle, with feature walls behind each bed can create the personalized touch each child will appreciate. Custom paneling is a great way to do this - 3D designs are always fun for kids and can be customized with different paint colors and updated as the kids get older.

When it comes to cool wall designs for your kid’s bedrooms, adding in something functional is a great idea. Installing a functional wall is one of the best ways to free up space in a bedroom, while ensuring there’s storage space for all the toys and, later on, all their books and electronics. From built-in shelves to a wall niche with a storage bench, there are many ways to include functionality into a wall design. 

How cool would it be to have this Mickey Mouse wall in your kid’s bedroom? Add a sitting bench with hidden storage and some downlighting, and getting your kid to read a book probably won’t be so difficult anymore.

Wall Designs For The Bathroom

Updating Your Shower

Your bathroom is a space for solitude and peace, in addition to the function it serves. So, getting creative with your bathroom design is a great way to revive the space and one way is with a wall design. 

Your shower is both a functional space and a place for you to reflect and have a moment to yourself. Adding texture to a wall in the shower is a great way to add character to the entire bathroom. Adding paneling or even tiles is a simple way to elevate the look of your shower.

Adding A Wall Niche

These keep popping up in home designs because they’re just so versatile! Adding a wall niche, either in the shower, above the sink, or even above the bathtub creates a feature wall in your bathroom that both serves a functional purpose AND adds aesthetic appeal to the room. These are excellent wall design ideas for your home - no matter your style or which room you’re decorating.

Master Bathroom Arched Vanity

Custom Bathroom Walls 

Sometimes it’s not about the functionality and you just want something to look pretty or unique in your home. Your bathroom is the perfect place to achieve this. The walls around your bathroom vanity or even the bathroom entryway are great spots for adding some flair. 

In front of the vanity is an area of the bathroom where one spends quite some time - brushing your teeth, applying make-up, etc. So why not make it an inspiring and energizing space? Textured panels are a great option here - there are simple wooden panels for a minimalist look or very contemporary designs that can all be customized to any color you can think of. 

Another great option would be to replace a few of those wall corners with some curved walls. I mean, who needs all those right angles anyway, right? Curved walls not only add a cool design element to your bathroom, but some clients like them because of the safety component, especially if you have small children. Incorporating unique wall designs into your bathroom can completely transform your space.

Custom Range Hoods

Wall Designs For The Living Room

Fireplace Canopy Hoods

The sky is really the limit here - if you can think it, you can create it. One great idea is to incorporate a wall design with a fireplace. Creating a fireplace canopy hood creates a feature wall in your living room. This can be done with wood and in various designs to suit the architectural style of the room.

A TV Feature Wall

Another great idea is to incorporate a feature wall design for your TV. What do we mean by that? Well, instead of simply having your TV stand on a shelf or hang on a blank wall, you could add paneling to the wall or have a recessed wall design to make the space look more visually appealing. 

There are plain, simple options and there are also great 3D wall designs for you to choose from to spruce up your living room.

Wall Designs For Your Office Or Multipurpose Room

A Feature Wall Bookshelf

The classic bookshelf is the perfect way to upgrade your office. Not only will it provide a function (storing ALL your books), it will also add drama to an otherwise blank wall in your office. 3D wall designs in wood can be used to create extra storage space for books, as well as other items you may want on display in your office. How about a unique wall design consisting of a curved bookshelf and some backlighting to add a nice touch?

An Entertainment Wall

What is this you ask? Well, If your home office isn’t just a home office, it’s also a guest room (for when your in-laws stay over) a playroom for your kids, or even a media room, maximizing the space in the room is a must. 

Creating a custom wall that can serve as a stage or place for your projector screen is great for both kids and adults. This gives the kids a place to be creative, but can also be a great spot for family movie night or watching the big game.

Final Thoughts On Wall Design Ideas For Your Home

It’s always a great idea to consult with professionals before going ahead with a project that requires a level of expertise. Depending on the intricacy of the project, this could be a DIY project or something that requires a consultant and contractor - especially if you’re dealing with load-bearing walls. 

That being said, your home should be a reflection of you, your style, and preferences, as well as your evolving needs. Designing your home is both a functional exercise while bringing your vision and style to life. 

Walls in your home are such a great space to let your creative juices flow. They can be so much more than just a blank space to hang a picture frame or piece of art. Why not try something different and create a beautiful, unique 3D wall design? 

Whether you’re adventurous in your style or if you have more classic tastes, adding accent wall design ideas for your home is a modern way to elevate the design and functionality of any room.
