If you have bare walls that you want to transform but a tight budget, you can still do a lot of things without having to spend a fortune. As long as you have nut and bolt suppliers and an active imagination, you can add life to your otherwise boring walls.


What better way to decorate your plain walls than a row of potted plants? Potted plants are easy to hang, and the image of greenery will make your room look livelier. So, get your nuts, bolts, and drills, and start hanging up some plants.


If you want the accessories on your walls to be not just decorative but also functional, then you can hang a corkboard or two. Hanging corkboards on your walls will even be better because not only will you be able to post some small pad papers on it to remind you of something, but you can hang other things as additional decorations, too.

You can also go the more traditional route and install a bookshelf. This way, you’ll be able to free up more space in your room where your books used to be. It’s also a great way to decorate your apartment because books are quite pleasing to the eye no matter what kinds you place on the shelf.

Wooden crates

Wooden crates are a great decoration for walls because they serve two purposes: they are already a décor and you can place something in them to make them even more beautiful. If you hang wooden crates with their bottom side on the wall, you can place other items inside the crate, which you can see.

It’s like having a cute cubbyhole on your walls. And to make it more aesthetically pleasing, get as many crates with different shapes you can find and place them on top of each other. Place the square ones on top of the rectangular ones so that there’s variation in their look.

Vertical garden

Had fun hanging some potted plants on your walls? Here, you can do that again but rather than positioning your plants parallel to each other, place them in a vertical angle. To make it easier for you to figure out the vertical angles, try making diamond shapes to guide you.


Another innovative way to decorate your walls is to get a bunch of clipboards and hang them. This way, you can hang any painting or photo you want on your walls without having to frame them.


Rugs are good decorations not only for your floors but for your walls, as well. Choose small rugs and try to hang different styles so that you’ll have many variations. You can also choose to hang them diagonally instead of horizontally for a sort of haphazard look.

These are just some ideas you can use to decorate your walls without having to spend too much and without having to use a painting. As long as you let your imagination run free, you’ll have countless ideas on how to transform your bare and boring walls.
