3 Low-Maintenance Ways to Bring Your Walls to Life

peel and stick panelingThe interior design industry generates $10 billion in revenues annually. There are countless ways to turn basic elements of your home into a truly unique and innovative feature that brings the room to life. The walls are a great place to start -- if you're sick of plain or off white colors, consider these low-maintenance ideas that can bring your walls to life.


Sure, paint may seem rather limiting -- after all, more than one-third of respondents in a 2017 Interior Design Trends survey said they would choose a neutral color palette when redecorating their home. But in reality, you're only limited by your imagination when it comes to colors and styles. Consider painting just one wall a bright and vibrant shade to turn it into an accent wall, or use any type of stencil to create something more cinematic and animated. Of course, if you're feeling a bit more adventurous, the options below may be a better fit.


It may seem rather unorthodox to use a fabric wall covering, but it's a trend that's growing in popularity. Usually, a fabric covering is used to create an accent wall, and as is the case with other types of decor, homeowners have virtually limitless possibilities when it comes to color and style.

"A fabric wall definitely makes a bold statement, and it speaks right to the heart. Staple it up and when you're tired of it, you can pull it down and make something new out of the fabric," says Kaleidoscope Living.

Peel and Stick Paneling

Finally, peel and stick paneling can bring a certain level of sophistication to any single room of your home. Hardwood trees can take upwards of twenty years or more to reach maturity, but with proper care, wood can last for hundreds of years without rot or wear. This makes peel and stick wood wall planks an ideal option for those who want maximum aesthetic appeal with minimal maintenance.

About 48% of homeowners planned to decorate their homes in 2018, according to a Houzz survey, and these low-maintenance ideas are a great place to start. For more information about engineered hardwood stick on wood panels, contact Wall Planks.
