Got a blank space above your sofa? Decorating above your sofa serves several purposes and can greatly enhance the overall look and feel of your living space. Aside from adding visual interest in the space, it can be a conversation starter and a chance to showcase your personality. Spruce up your sofa space — here are some ideas to get you started!

Hang Some Artwork


You can opt for a single, oversized piece of artwork or a statement canvas painting that serves as a focal point. Ensure it complements your color scheme and style. Hanging a collection of framed artwork, photos, or prints in various sizes and shapes to create a visually appealing gallery wall. Mix and match frames for added interest.



Large Mirror


A large decorative mirror can make the room feel more spacious and reflect light. Choose a stylish frame that complements your decor.


Floating Shelves


Install floating shelves above the sofa to display decorative items, books, or plants. You can arrange them symmetrically or asymmetrically for a modern look.


Tapestry or Wall Hanging


Add texture and pattern with a tapestry or woven wall hanging. These can bring warmth and a bohemian feel to your space.


Sculptural Decor
