Bare walls can be boring.
The following are a few designs that challenge blank walls. From simpler stencil techniques to recycled material applications and art installations, walls make great surfaces for exploring.
From ZNAK, this wallpaper has a unique application. Almost like a reusable sticker, it can be placed on the wall and torn off into different strips, shapes and sizes.

This line of wall tiles from Slate-ish uses paper laminate that is leftover from various construction projects. The recycled material creates a textural looking wall surface and is available in different colors. It looks heavy and resembles natural stone, but is actually lightweight.
Interestingly, Slate-ish came about by accident. The company was installing countertops and was inspired by a broken piece and ways to use up scrap supplies. After playing around with hand cutting and chiseling techniques they came up with the concept.
From the living space to the display place, artist Scott Carter has an eye for architecture and original wall installations. Using the wall space as a canvas, he transforms ordinary materials like surfaces and furniture. This technique uses cut outs that look like carvings.
Instead of being reliant on the typical, he weaves in architectural installations that are an upgrade of the cookie cutter and mundane. The artist reportedly is inspired by a revolt against the mass produced, as evident in his walls turned into unorthodox patterns and designs.
His gallery walls have been showcased at several art exhibitions. According to the artist, his use of unfinished elements are a response to feeling somewhat displaced throughout life, like when trying to decide where to settle.
The ability to think outside of the box can produce some creative, and curious, productions.
