Previous Post: 12 Bathroom DIY Renovation Lessons – All you need to know before embarking your DIY Renovation Journey Part 9

Turning a clinically white wall into a serious style statement can be a headache, especially when one is looking for a solution that is cheap, simple and yet delivers maximum impact!

A white washed wall is an excellent canvas for us to experiment with ways to inject an individual style into our home. We can try out a colour or design on a much smaller scale prior scaling up to a bigger one. In fact, a plain wall is very useful for us to trial with colourful colours, patterns, photographs and wall decorations!

So, here is a list of ideas which we have shortlisted during our DIY renovation journey to add a dramatic focal point in our living room. Yes! turning the wall from “blah” to “wah” is never so easy!

1. Recycle with antique vinyl album sleeve

Wall decals and wallpapers are so passé. Now, cheaper, colourful, patterned Japanese paper tapes for the home interiors are extremely popular. They are so versatile, they can be taped on almost anything. From cupboards, wardrobes, doors and now, even walls! The best part is that they can be removed anytime* – so feel free to change your mind and let your imagination go bonkers!
