If you're striving to make your home design every inch the modern masterpiece, read on, as we have some amazing ideas for what you can do with your walls.

You might have thought that paint was your only option, but it's really not and all the incredible interior designers out there are dying to show you what they've been creating! 

Sit back and relax as we show you some of the truly phenomenal wall coverings that are being used right now and see if any of these tempt you to add a little breathtaking detail to your British home.

3. If you liked the texture of the slate but not the colour, how about white stone for your walls?

4. Simple, chic and elegant, we think a gallery wall is a great way to make the most of your home divides

5. Decals are the latest in easy, non-permanent home design trends and we can see why. They make such an impact but don't leave a mark

9. We can't leave out paint as it's the quickest and simplest way to change a room and make it truly impactful

10. Wood cladding on the walls might bring Swedish homes to mind, but in moderation it's perfect for country-style homes here in the UK

11. Modern and daring, exposed concrete walls won't be for everyone but we think they are utterly stunning

12. If you walls really aren't inspiring you, simply cover them with a functional bookcase! The spines of your tomes will be a beautiful backdrop in any room
