Tips to Decorate Bedroom Walls with Stripes
It’s hard to imagine a design simpler than a basic straight line. Stack two or more straight lines, and you have stripes: clean, easy on the eyes, and infinitely variable. It’s perhaps because of this that stripes are the most commonly used pattern for decorating interior walls.
There can be horizontal stripes, vertical stripes, zigzag stripes, jagged stripes, and colourful stripes. Here are tips to decorate your bedroom wall with stripes.
One Bold Stripe: If you want to make a statement, but not an exclamation, put one oversize horizontal stripe around your walls.
Stripes in a child Bedroom: Stripes are a wonderful way to add fun to a child’s bedroom. While most stripes often run in straight, parallel lines, there’s no law saying you can’t break them up a bit with a few zigs and zags to make it look fun.
Vertical Stripes: While horizontal stripes make a small bedroom look bigger, vertical stripes make a low ceiling look higher. If horizontal stripes are fairly fat, they make the most impact, but when vertical stripes are thin, they add the most impact.
Glamorous Striped Walls: Looking for a touch of glamour in your bedroom? Then consider adding softly metallic stripes.
Wooden Striped Walls: Consider creating a striped wall by layering stained wooden boards over a deep shade of paint.
Stripes Add Balance: Use a bright stripe on an accent wall to balance similar tones in a bold window treatment.
Striped walls in a Small Bedroom: Just because you have a tiny bedroom doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun with your decor. Bold horizontal stripes actually make the space look a little bit larger.
Striped Walls for Renters: Just because you rent doesn’t mean you can’t wake up your bedroom walls. You can stretch a piece of fabric over a wooden frame and paint stripes in your favourite colours and then prop it up at the head of your bed. Viola! Instant accent wall.
