The one that first catches the eye: changing its appearance means visually renewing the entire room. Here’s how to interpret it creatively, adding shelves or other objects or decorating it with upholstery, painting it or adding a boiserie.

With shelves
One or more furnish the wall behind the bed and are functional at the same time: useful support surfaces, they can replace bedside tables and, in the more hi tech versions, also reading lamps (because they are integrated).

How are shelves fixed to the wall? The first step is to evaluate whether to use retractable or visible supports. In the first case, hidden recessed brackets are required which fit into the thickness of the shelf itself; this therefore excludes particularly thin models. In both cases, to be sure that it is mounted straight you need a spirit level and, to drill the wall, a drill.

first hole with a bit of a diameter smaller than the one required, and then go back into the hole, widening it, with the tip required by the plug.

How to create a disc composition? The same “rules” apply to paintings: try on the floor before proceeding definitively on the wall. You can also make paper shapes to attach to see what it will do. There are many objects that are suitable for this purpose, such as small collections of hats or fans, cushion covers …: the important thing is that they are light enough and not bulky.
