7 Easy Ways To Add Texture To A Room {Without A Lot Of Effort}

I have put together 7 of the best ways to add texture to a room to pull a whole look together.

When you visit my home, you’re sure to find lots of texture.  To me, a room without texture is a room without personality!

If you have a room that looks flat and boring and you can’t quite put your finger on the problem, maybe texture is the missing element.

Here are 7 easy and quick ways that you can texture to your home without a lot of effort.

Hang a wreath or a piece of art on the front of a bookcase.  It doesn’t have to be permanently attached.  Use Command Strips or create a loop of fabric, wrap it around the wreath and thumbtack it to the top of the bookcase.

 You can’t go wrong with using natural earthy elements to add texture.  Mother Nature does the work for you!

Adding sticks and twigs to containers is a favorite of mine.  Just take a walk outdoors to collect all sorts of sizes and shapes.
