5 Ways to Add Design Texture and Dimension to Your Walls

Interior designers and homeowners often look for ways to liven up rooms by using color, artwork, decorative pillows, rugs, and many other design elements. Another excellent way to breathe some life into a room is to add some texture to walls, whether using brick, wallpaper, or custom molding.

There are many different ways to experiment with adding texture to walls. Below are 5 ways to add design texture and dimension to walls of any room in your home.


Brick adds a sense of warmth to any room. Using exposed brick as a way to add texture and dimension is most commonly used in living rooms. If you’re lucky enough, the room already came with history-rich brick, and it can be used as the focal point. In other circumstances, it’s added later.


Wallpaper is a versatile way of bringing in texture to your walls. Opt for a wallpaper that gives the illusion of texture or go for a traditional print that really brings dimension to the room if you’re looking to liven up an otherwise boring room.

Box Molding

Box molding brings a sense of sophistication to rooms. Box molding is usually used in traditional interior design schemes. Also referred to as shadow box molding, this technique is similar to wainscotting. Box molding adds personality to any space by transforming walls into traditional works of art.


Shiplap is a nice way to enhance your coastal style home. It can be used in various rooms, from bathrooms, to entryways, to bedrooms. Shiplap is commonly used with neutral colors like white, gray or a natural wood.


Texture-rich grasscloth can turn any room into a luxurious interior design success and will add a sense of warmth to your home. Grasscloth wallpaper can be used as an accent wall or for the full room. Grasscloth provides texture and elegance, and it’s available in a variety of colors.
