Big walls call for big art. Nothing looks stranger than seeing a small, lonely painting floating in a giant expanse of wall. The difficulty, of course, is that big pieces of art often come with big price tags. So we've rounded up a list of nine different ways to fill up a big wall on a little budget.
If you prefer a more traditional look, try cutting out and framing a few pieces of boldly patterned wallpaper, as seen on Havenly.
If you're not lucky enough to have something already at hand, a vintage tapestry, rug, or quilt can often be had for a small fraction of the cost of a similarly sized piece of art. And I love the idea of hanging one on the wall with pants hangers, as seen on Design Sponge.
If you have a smaller piece that you really love but that just isn't the right size for your wall, you can give it some extra impact by backing it with a piece of art paper surrounded by picture frame moldings. Image from Lonny.
Create a DIY mural, like this one seen on Little Green Notebook. Abbey found a vintage print and had it printed on adhesive-backed paper using Wizard Prints, but you could also use an inexpensive engineering print to get the same look.
