3 Dimensional Wall Décor Ideas

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design and Decorating

Wall décor is a must for every room. It adds personality and interest to the room, gives you something to focus on, and can help brighten up the space and complete the design of the room. If you’re looking for something other than pictures and standard wall art to display on your walls, consider one of these dimensional wall décor ideas instead.

Wall Plants

If you like greenery, why not create some living walls in your home? Wall planters are available that are large, shallow boxes that mount vertically to the wall. The plants are able to grow up the walls, rather than out of pots, which makes a living art display anywhere in your home. Just position them across from a window to get the best light and turn your walls into your own greenhouse.

Water Fountains

Wall fountains are a beautiful trend in interior design right now. Not only do they give you a sculptural feel to the walls, they also provide ambient sound to the room. This can create a soothing, tranquil feeling in the room that can enhance the rest of the design. Opt for a fountain that is large enough to really make a visual statement as well as an auditory one for the best results.

Pillars

You’ve probably already thought of wall shelves and niches as a way to display things on your walls, but what about built in pillars? Pillars allow you to arrange items at varying heights on the wall for a more eclectic look. You can also mount pillars on the wall next to your stairs, rising in height with the stairs to emphasize the shape of the wall and give you some added interest in this area.

Metal Wall Sculpture

If you’re in the market for some wall art, consider opting for some metal wall sculpture. Metal has an ability to be bent and shaped in ways that allow it to come right off the wall, while still remaining thin and relatively flat. This adds a lot of extra dimension to the room, because you can view the piece from several angles and see it differently each and every time.

Indoor Camping

School vacation can mean traveling, visiting relatives or seeing sights. It may include swimming and other sports, time to play and picnics.

Here’s one fun idea that you can plan no matter what kind of weather you’re facing – a night of camping indoors.

Start with a tent that doesn’t need any posts to set up – no risk to your nice flooring. Bring some houseplants into sight and turn off all the lights.

Candles are too risky for children, but today’s LED lights are made to mimic candles of all sizes.

Have your children pack their own knapsacks with snacks and favorite toys. Add a few surprises for each child, including their own flashlights. Spread out sleeping bags if you have them or a pile of pillows, cushions and blankets will work.

Hotdogs and beans make for good camping fare. You may want to head outside to the grill for smores before bundling back to the tent for scary ghost stories before turning in. One of the best lessons you can teach your children is how to make their own fun rather than relying on movies, television and video games.

Have your children make a plan for the next at-home event. They’re not only developing their imaginations and planning skills, they’re making memories that will last a lifetime.
