Stock Sofa

If the wall above your couch is empty, it can seem like an overwhelming expanse of space to decorate.  Use these style ideas to help inspire your design.

Create a bold statement by painting just the wall behind the couch in an accent color.  Choose a color that adds vibrant interest while still complementing the rest of the room.  Alternatively, purchase one extra-large piece of colorful artwork to display above the sofa.

Utilize the empty wall by installing a few floating shelves at varying heights to display decorative items, small houseplants, family photos, or flameless candles.  A larger shelving unit could be used to show off colletor's items or filled with brightly colored books.

Give the illusion of more space in smaller rooms by hanging mirrors.  You could choose between one large mirror in a decorative frame or a collection of smaller mirrors arranged as a gallery wall behind the couch.

Add some depth to the wall by hanging three-dimensional items in varying sizes.  An assortment of woven baskets, hanging planters, faux animal mounts, or macrame' wall hangings are all easy to install.  Another option is to create texture on the wall through carved wood, engineered stone tiles or raised wall paneling.
