Creative Ideas for Your Bedroom

Bedroom is always one of the warmest places in the house. You can relax, enjoy, sleep or read a book sitting in your bedroom! As mentioned earlier, choose only one wall that you think can be paneled:
● First, decide the place where you are going to place your bed. Once that is done, choose the wall just behind the bed and try to panel it using mica and wood. If your wall is uneven or has patches, level it first and then fix a sheet of mica on the wall covering all the edges and corners.
Choose the color of the mica carefully as that is going to be your base color. Then, use the wooden ply to give it a 3D effect. Get two sheets of the ply and fix them in the center beside each other. The size of the ply has to small so that it gives the required effect. You can try decorative wall hangings on the wooden ply to add to the beauty.
● Another way to make your bedroom wall look beautiful is to give it a brick look the way you have it near the fire chimney. Choose wood as your material. Get it polished in two different shades and place them one beside the other. 
The size of each brick has to be very small. You can actually measure the size of a real brick and then cut the ply that way. That will make your bedroom even warmer and it will surely be a beautiful place to relax!
● If you are an artistic person, give your bedroom wall a weaving look. The material used is either wood or pure sandalwood. Get the entire stock of wood carved in the way you want it to look. Make squarish nets and then fix the wood on the wall. 
Also, try different shapes like diamonds, circles or triangles. Before you fix that, paint the wall in a dark shade. That will make the carving look even more beautiful. Try using yellow lights to enhance it.

Kitchen walls have limited scope to be decorated. But, even if you have smaller walls, you can try using these ideas and make them very creative:

Go for pink, blue, yellow or shades of orange. You can give a white border to the wall first, and then fix those tiles. These tiles are easy to clean.
● Use medium size vinyl tiles on the lower half of the wall and drill nails to hang some artistic items. The color of the upper half of the wall should complement the color of the tiles in the lower half. A pretty napkin left hanging on a peg, can add to the beauty! Paste beautiful pictures on the upper half of the wall to make it look even better.
● If your kitchen doesn't have much of a storage space, then you can try creating that in a wall using ply or fiber panel boxes. Make open boxes of fiber and fix them next to each other. You can decide the size of the boxes according to your storage requirements. 
That way, you'll decorate the wall and also create a storage space. But, make sure you store creative and artistic items in those boxes so that the beauty of the wall is retained.
