11 Different Ways to Dress Up Generic Walls

3 min read

Still don’t have that famed art collection? Our friends at Cromly have lined up some simple, creative, and surprisingly affordable options!

Framed art, a beautiful collection of vintage prints—these aren’t the only things you have to put up on your walls. Check out these unique ideas for dressing up blah walls.

1. Paint chips as wall art

Ever gone crazy collecting paint chips from the home depot and still haven’t decided what paint colour to use on your wall? Instead of letting them gather in some forgotten drawer, give them their own wall to cover up.

2. Instagram wall

You spend time composing your Instagram shots—bring them out of the online app and onto your walls by having them printed and creating a grid of your best IG memories on your wall.

3. Doily backdrop

No budget for wallpaper? Layer inexpensive but gracefully beautiful doilies on an accent wall. Not only will you add colour and visual interest, but texture as well.

6. Coffee filter wall art

Daisies, anyone? With unused coffee filters, a little watercolor, and tape (or tacks), you can create a collection of daisies that look as if they just magically bloomed out of your wall.

11. Corkboard wall

Looking to sell your property?

Whether your HDB apartment is reaching the end of its Minimum Occupation Period (MOP) or your condo has crossed its Seller Stamp Duty (SSD) window, it is always good to know how much you can potentially gain if you were to list and sell your property.

One easy way is to send us a request for a credible and trusted property consultant to reach out to you.

Alternatively, you can jump onto 99.co’s Property Value Tool to get an estimate for free.

If you’re looking for your dream home, be it as a first-time or seasoned homebuyer or seller – say, to upgrade or right-size – you will find it on Singapore’s fastest-growing property portal 99.co.
