Here's a look at five different types of custom wall designs that you can do by yourself in your own home.

First on House Beautiful's list is the traditional wainscoting. Carol from CAD Interiors built, sanded, primed and painted her own wainscoting at home. If she can do it, so can you!

You can also add a unique design to your walls, but sometimes you need a professional to supervise you or oversee your work. Since more intricate designs require an even bigger effort, you need to make sure that you can hire a professional to help you out with it.

If you want your walls to have some sort of glamorous molding, you can take inspiration from the creation of Jennifer Griffin from Dimples & Tangles. What Griffin did was she made good use of a painters tape to outline the design of her wall and to make sure that it will look absolutely perfect.

Another designer decided to build a customized headboard against her wall, and this was where she placed her bed. This means that she only purchased the mattresses for her bed and no longer needed to buy an actual headboard because one can say that she already has one.

Now that you have an idea when it comes to some of the designs and things that you can do with your walls, what are you still waiting for? Make sure to consider redesigning your walls now. Remember, this could be a very daunting task, but it can also be very rewarding especially if you are able to do things right.

With this, always make it a point to do the redecorating on your own. However, the minute you realize that you can no longer do the work on your own, make it a point to hire a professional.
