Whether you’re starting from scratch with a new home or are looking to spruce up your current space, decorating your music room is a great way to bring your favourite hobby to life.
Whether you’re new to music or have been playing for years, there’s no better way to bring friends, family, and neighbours together than through playing music. From learning new songs to playing old favourites, the opportunities for music are endless.
Music rooms are spaces for playing music and having fun with friends. Whether you’re an experienced musician or a complete beginner, there’s no better way to get everyone in your home involved in the music than by decorating a music room.
Whether you have a small space, a lot of wall space or you want to add a special accent piece to your space, these ideas for decorating your music room will help you create the perfect space for playing music.
1. Create a cohesive look
The look of your music room is a big part of creating a cohesive space for music. Think about the look of your home, and then work those elements into your music room. Think about the colours of clothes that people have on, their furniture, and accessories. Artwork, wall decor, and lighting can all be used as part of this cohesive look. Cohesive elements will help tie together the room so your space feels like a whole instead of a bunch of different elements.
2. Create a rhythm wall
A rhythm wall is a wall covered with different pieces of knick-knack, collectables, and other things that make different sounds when they bump into each other. This is often referred to as “musical wallpaper” and is a fun way to create an interactive space where people can interact with the space while playing music. You can buy musical wallpaper kits that come with everything you need to create this wall or you can get creative and make your own wall.
3. Connect your speakers to your lights
Part of the fun of creating a music room is having your favourite tunes playing in the background while you’re enjoying the space. One of the best ways to do this is to connect your speakers to your lights. This allows you to play music in the background and light up the space when the music is playing — creating a fun atmosphere that you can’t get with just the speakers alone. This is especially great for parties where you’re trying to get people to stay longer by adding a little more fun to the space.
4. Create a space that’s functional and stylish
Music rooms need to be functional and stylish at the same time. Everything in the room should be able to support the purposes of the room. You don’t want clutter or clutter that won’t help you play or practice music. You also don’t want too much decoration that will take away from the music. The room should be functional for everything you need to be able to do in the space. If you have a practice space, keep it that way. If you need a place to store your instruments, make sure the layout is conducive to that. If you need a space to write out songs or blog about the band, make sure it’s a space where you can do that without being distracted. Keep the space functional and stylish.
5. Playlist wall
A wall dedicated to your favourite playlists is an easy way to bring your favourite songs into your home in a fun and modern way. With options such as the RocknRoll Vinyl Wall Decal and the Audio Wallpaper, you can bring your favourite playlists to life with modern and stylish designs. These decals are easy to install and create a seamless look for your playlists. If you prefer a more permanent option, the Audio Wallpaper comes in both matte and glossy options, creating a seamless look for your wall.
6. Add accent pillows and stools
Accent pillows and stools can add a great additional focal point to your room, and are a great way to add colour and texture to your space. Be sure to add them in areas where they will likely be seen, and consider including one of your favourite instruments or a photo of your favourite musician.
7. Add colour with accent paintings and wallpapers
Colour is an important part of decorating your music room, and accent wallpapers, accent paintings, and accent pillows all can add great pops of colour to your space. Think about the look of your favourite music space, choose a wall colour that compliments that look, and then add the accent wallpapers and accent paintings to take your music room to the next level.
8. Play music together
One of the most important parts of creating a cohesive space for music is making sure you have music playing at all times. Whether you’re learning new songs for your family or inviting friends over for jam sessions, you’ll want to make sure you always have some music playing. There’s nothing worse than not having any music playing when people you love come over, and having no idea what to do or talk about.
9. Organize your instruments
Having all of your instruments in one room can be a bit too much to handle, so make sure you have them organized and easy to get to when you need them. Whether you have them in a corner, against a wall, or in a closet, make sure you have them organized and easy to grab when you need them.
10. Creative sound systems
A sound system in your music room can open up a whole new world of possibilities. Whether you want to add some surround sound to your favourite movies or simply want to bring music into your space, a sound system in your music room is a great way to bring it to life. One of the most popular options for sound systems is the wireless speaker. From small and sleek options to larger and more powerful options, wireless speakers have a variety of options to choose from. If you’re looking for a more traditional sound system, there are a variety of options available too.
11. Make customized stands
When it comes to decorating your music room, you’ll want to think about all kinds of different ways to add an accent piece to your space. An accent piece can be anything, from an ornate guitar stand to an acrylic piano stand. The accent piece should be a piece that is an extension of the music you love, and that you love playing.
12. Add a stool or tune your current furniture
If you love sitting in a certain spot while you’re playing, consider adding a stool. Stools are often overlooked when it comes to music rooms — but they are one of the best things you can do to create a great music room experience. Stools encourage everyone to get up and move around, which can help relieve stress and promote better health. If your current furniture isn’t the most comfortable, you can always move the pieces around and add a stool or two to encourage people to sit and relax while they’re playing.
13. Add a mirror and use it as a frame for prints or photos
Mirrors are also often overlooked when it comes to decorating a music room — but they can be a fun way to add a little pizzaz to your decor. These mirrors are often inexpensive, easy to find, and come in a variety of colours and styles. You can even find mirrors that are specifically designed to be hung on the wall.
14. Decorate with strings or guitars
String lights and guitars that you don’t use in your day-to-day life can be a fun way to bring a bit of the outdoors into your music room. String lights are great for bringing greenery into a space, which can help create a relaxing and healthy atmosphere in your room. You can also hang some of your favourite guitar chords or use the strings for other activities like making a drum beat. You can also hang some of your tools from your chosen craft from a wall, string, or door and use them as part of your decor.
15. Play with colour and pattern
One of the best ways to decorate a music room is with patterns. A pattern can help tie together all of the other elements in your room and make them feel more connected. You can also use patterns to bring more depth to your space. For example, you can use patterns to bring out the wood in a wood-inspired space, or bring more depth to the more neutral-toned colours in your space. You can also use patterns to bring out your favourite pieces of furniture or accessories in your space.
Here’s the gist
When it comes to decorating your music room, one of the best things you can do is think outside the box. Creative designs and unique uses for common items can help bring your favourite hobby to life in a way you never thought possible.
