Creative Wall Treatments for Small Spaces

Creative Wall Treatments for Small Spaces

In a small space where one room may do double, triple or even quadruple duty as a bedroom, living room, dining room and kitchen, it's important to designate zones so that you don't feel oppressed by being space challenged. One great way to do that is to use a wall treatment. But, as much as we love wallpaper, we don't love the price. If you feel the same way we do, consider some of these options.

  1. Newspapers: Don't stick to English. Try a foreign language edition, especially ones from China or Russia.
  2. Menus: Don't throw out those menus that seem to multiply like rabbits outside your front door. Use them to decorate a wall. The kitchen's an obvious place for this of course.
  3. Pages from old books: don't stick with old coffee table books, try poetry or recipes
  4. Old letters: Remember them? We've love a wall of love letters in the bedroom
  5. Sheet Music: Even if we can't read music, we love the way it looks.
  6. Greeting Cards: Especially silly in a kid's room.

Use double-stick tape, glue dots, a removable glue stick or flour and water paste.
