Interior spaces are often revamped by moving the furniture around, changing curtains or rugs, and by adding a sculpture or painting. But lending a brand new look to your walls can be the best way to achieve a beautiful and refreshing interior. From textured paint to wallpapers, 3D coatings or claddings in stone or wood, there are numerous options for uplifting your walls visually. Here, we bring you 10 unique ideas which can infuse your walls with personality in a unique way.

1. Go for adhesive coatings

Paired with stylish lights, adhesive coatings like the wooden squares shown here can dramatically change the look of your walls. You can pick from either simple or complex designs, and this way, you will save a lot of money as well.

2. Metallic beauty

Instead of ordinary wallpapers, you can give beautifully carved metallic panels a shot for uniqueness. These can feature indirect lighting for a glamorous look as you can see in this dining room designed by the interior designers and decorators at Alaya D’Decor. Sleek opaque structures like wooden panels can also do the trick.

3. Massive customised vinyl

A large vinyl depicting a beautiful piece of scenery or abstract patterns can spice up your wall in a jiffy. Your teenager might like a giant version of his or her favourite superhero too.

4. Psychedelic charm

Feel free to customise your vinyl with psychedelic patterns or small figures to suit the decor style of your interiors.

5. Create a focal point

For instance, the wall holding your TV unit can be revamped gorgeously with decorative panels or beautiful wallpapers to create a focal point in the room. This way, other minor design flaws will be easily overlooked.

6. Bringing nature inside

A vertical garden composed of flowering vines, ferns, other ornamental plants or simply grass can add a whole new edge to your wall. A sleek wooden structure supporting some potted greens might work as well.

7. Painting trick

If paint is the way you want to go to renovate your interiors, then choose a colour and design or texture which is unique. Apply the paint in a circular motion and then dab it with a sponge to get an unusual effect.

8. Elegant stone laminates
