Figuring out the right creative wall covering for each room in your home can be very challenging, considering the endless options. Some simple, easy, and inexpensive methods to add a little color or texture to any room is through wallpapering or using stucco paint. Some people enjoy mural painting on a wall, which can add personality and make a room appear much larger.

Creative Wall Coverings Options

Should you decide to refinish some walls and apply fresh new creative wall coverings, you can choose simple paints or meticulously created imagery. Wallpaper is an inexpensive way to add some color into any space, although it may not have as much of a personalized touch, unless you work with a company that offers custom wallpaper. Make sure that you measure the walls thoroughly so you have the right amount of wallpaper.

Painting the walls can also liven up the room with color or texture! Stucco paint, which is commonly used on ceilings to create depth, is a very simple and durable creative wall covering. You can also paint the room a solid base color and add a different colored pattern using stencils or by sponge painting. Sponge painting can create an illusion of texture if you paint a lighter color over a deeper base paint.

For those who want a more intricate paint job, perhaps something that holds a special meaning or creates a particular mood, mural painting is an excellent option. Painting a detailed scene on one or more walls can make the space seem larger, and be a very creative and unique setting. Parents often have art murals painted in children's rooms, like a zoo scene, underwater creatures, or the sky. These images can be a learning tool for the child and encourage a lively imagination.
