A feature wall can make a boring room extraordinary! It adds a statement to the room. You can also easily do this yourself.

Pallet DIY projects are all the rage right now! Adding pallet planks to your wall makes the perfect texture to add to a room to make it pop. If you have old pallets around the house or purchase them, they don’t take much to put them on the wall.

Add Wainscoting

Wainscoting was a way to keep stone walls warm back in the day. In the 18th century, it became a staple part of interior design. Today, we are still using this design technique to add style and texture to a wall.

The most popular places to put up wainscoting is in the entryway, dining room, and bathrooms. There are many different styles you can layout on your wall. DIY Network has this process step by step, along with all the materials and tools you will need for this project.

Floating Shelves

With about your house’s look, you can put up floating shelves to add some dimension to your wall.

Looking for a farmhouse design? Buy a wood plank and stain it a dark brown or paint it white and distress the wood. Find black brackets to hang them up with, and you have yourself a place to put the beautiful knick-knacks you’ve wanted to show off!

Add A Barn Door

Barn doors are another amazing improvement for the farmhouse look! Instead of regular boring doors, add some fun to your closet or laundry room by adding barn sliding doors yourself.

There are tons of places to put crown molding to make a huge difference in any room. Give your windows an aesthetic makeover by simply adding crown molding!

Places you can add crown molding…

  • Top of Windows

Along with some eye-catching window curtains, add crown molding to the top of this window for some more character.

  • Kitchen Cabinets

If your ceilings are tall and your kitchen cabinets don’t quite reach the top, place crown molding around them to give the allusion they are taller.

  • Ceiling

One way to cover up painting marks where the wall and the ceiling meet is by decorating this mistake by adding crown molding. Not only does it cover up paint marks, but it gives the room a whole new stylish feeling.

  • Around Doors

Decorative crown molding around the doors gives your home some old-time character. If your walls are feeling plain, adding this around the door will give it that touch of fun it needs!
