The Best Ideas to Fill a Blank Wall

Do you have a blank wall that you want to do something with? Deciding on how to decorate it can be exhausting because there are a million different options to consider. Which is why we are sharing 4 of our best and most-recommended decorating ideas for blank walls to help give you some guidance.

Console Table + Wall Art

A piece of art is a great way to fill up a wall but we recommend taking it a few steps further. When decorating a wall, we love to add dimension, mixed with a variety of textures and heights. Keeping that in mind, we recommend using that art but pair it with a console table for dimension. Style it with lamps, ottomans, plants and accessories for a variety of textures. Now, you have a wall that is interesting and functional!

Settee + Wall Mirror

Accent seating is a great solution to fill a blank wall because it adds functionality and dimension. Settees have shallow seats which make them perfect if you don't have a ton of space. We love to add mirrors over settees because they don't compete with the colors, patterns or unique details of the fabric. Don't forget to finish your decorated wall with an end table, basket and pillows.

Bookcase + Chairs

Many people who decide to put a bookcase against a blank wall, style the shelves and then call it good. Not here at SwatchPop. We want to take it to the next level and add the unexpected. Add a pair of chairs flanking the bookcase in an interesting color or fabric. Add wall sconces above chairs to add more symmetry and create a finished and well-styled wall.

Bench + Gallery Wall

Benches are the most common approach for a blank wall in a small space because they are skinny but add interest. However, a bench can seem insignificant if it isn't paired with more items that are interesting. Gallery walls are interesting so we love combining these 2 elements. To finish it off, add pillows, floor lamp and a basket.
