You've got plenty of walls in your home but how are you going to decorate them? Paint, patterns, art? There are a host of fabulous ways to make a little more of the structural elements of your home design and we've found some of the best.

Interior designers know the value of adding some extra style to your walls, so take a look at these recommended methods for doing so and see which might look amazing in your home!

1. Wallpaper is a quick and easy way to change up your walls and, with every conceivable pattern available, you'll be spoilt for choice!

2. Mirrors are a great way to make a wall more exciting. Plus, if you choose large ones, they'll make the room seem bigger

3. Screens might usually be used to divide a room but they also make amazing wall adornments. We love this example, which sees them repurposed as a headboard!

4. Art belongs on walls so, if you're a keen collector, make sure you're displaying your collection in the best place

5. Texture is an easy way to make walls a little more dynamic. A rustic screed finish will add a wealth of personality

6. Decals are a modern trend that looks set to stay, as they're fast to apply and can be removed without leaving any damage

7. Displaying treasured photographs on your walls looks great, so why not splurge and get your firm favourites blown up to a large size and professionally framed?

8. If you have a budding artist in the house, murals and frescos are a wonderful and personal way to up your wall's style stakes

9. Tiles are a timeless way to add some oomph to your walls, but try to embrace a pattern rather than just a block colour

10. Iconic magazine covers, movie posters and any other printed collectables make amazing wall decoration. Be sure to frame them and use UV glass so they don't fade over time
