Do you have a beautiful brick wall in your living room that you don’t know how to decorate? Is that industrial red look not your taste? 

There are many ways to decorate a brick wall, but after hours of browsing through photos, you’ll have a mind full of ideas but still not know what to do. 

Wall decor is where we shine, so we compiled a quick list of great ideas to make your living room wall pop. So, please sit back and relax as we begin.

Paint the Bricks

A great way to make your brick wall beautiful is to add a layer of paint. Many people enjoy this idea because it is just so easy. 

Apart from being easy, it allows you to stretch your creative side. You may either keep it simple or make it spectacular. Here are a few ideas on how to do this. 

Keep it simple

What does keeping it simple mean? It means sticking to a single plain color that will make your brick wall pleasant to the eye. The two most popular colors are black and white, which can make a massive difference to the overall decor. 

With a black brick wall, there are many ways they can make your living room look better. It has a chance of visually softening the texture. It is also a great place to focus when you need to relax your brain from all your thoughts. 

On the other hand, a white brick wall also has its benefits. It can make your room look bigger and even increase the reach of natural light. Not to mention that it is always a trending look.

Similar to the white brick wall, a good limewash can do wonders by leaving a bit of the brick's color shining through. It will give you a more rustic look, but still the elegance of the white. 

You also don’t need to stick to only one of the two. Black and white have always enjoyed complimenting each other. Adding the contrast can be a fantastic combination and give the entire room the best of both worlds. The black will still give you the stimulating feel, while the white will give you the natural lighting and larger room.

If you enjoy the simpler things in life, then plain colors are the way to go. But, if you enjoy a more spontaneous look, then let’s discuss making your wall spectacular

Make it spectacular

Making your wall look unique and spontaneous is always a good way to go when it is done right. 

Adding a bit more color to your brick wall can make it stand out. There are also multiple ways to assess the situation. You can either add one or two colors to your wall to make it stand out, or you can go all out and rainbow it up. 

When you add a single color to an already white, black, plain red brick wall, it becomes a focal point in the room.

Painting the entire wall with different colors is also a fun way to decorate your otherwise boring brick wall, but it is not something that everyone will take pleasure in. 

Put a Frame on It

There are many ways you can decorate a living room wall. Let’s just say that photos, mirrors, and even empty frames can give a lot of character to a brick wall. Anything from your latest hiking adventure to a family photo will do.

Once again, a person can either do it a bit more structured, or you can be spontaneous. Meaning, you can either hang your frames in a straight line or put each one at a different height and have multiple sizes. 

All in all, it depends on how you would enjoy your framed wall. You can even add some wall art as a centerpiece to your frames. 

Add Some Storage Space

Now for the more practical side of things. Adding color and hanging images are always a pleasure, but how about simply adding some bookshelves or packing space?

If you have a perfectly placed shelf on a brick wall, it can work wonders for your living room's atmosphere. By adding some shelves, you have space to pack your board games, books, speakers, pot plants, and even some photo frames. Making your living room the place to be. 

Hang Your Hobbies 

Have you got any fun hobbies? Then add it to your brick wall. It might be anything from a musical instrument or bicycle to some hanging pot plants that you like. 

Not only will they give your wall some flair, but they are also great conversation starters. Give your guests a quick view into what you enjoy doing while making your plain brick wall stand out. 

If you enjoy traveling, you can always add a bit of world map wall art. You may even take a step further and pin all the locations you have visited or would like to visit. 

Use a Stunning Canvas

It may be something that has already crossed your mind, but living room wall decor is a fantastic way to make that brick wall stand out. 

With something as simple as a canvas, you can make your red brick wall go from bland to brilliant. The best part is that they come in all shapes and sizes, and there is something for everyone. Here are a couple of ideas that may get you inspired.
