Adding Texture to your Interiors
Textured walls are great when you just want to add more to the space without having to do much architectural change to the space. You have a couple of options to either add texture to walls with fabrics or you can do textured wall paneling that can be painted over.The fabric on the walls add the overall dramatic feel to the space and the wall paneling can add a variety of designs to your space especially once painted, however most like them to be painted in a neutral tone just so it wont seem like it’s overwhelming within the space. Be sure to check out some DIY videos and take a visit to your local Home Depot store about how to install or create the fabric or textured wall paneling for your DIY decor on your walls.

Another way to add texture to your DIY decor walls is with wall art however, wall art in a different way. Instead of purchasing wall accents and art, have it created on the wall as a permanent fix. Try having a scenic view painted on the wall or some realistic visual that creates depth and diversity to the space. The technical term is called Trompe l’oeil (Fools the Eye). This idea will truly be an eye catching touch to your interior walls.
