Every time we ooh and ahh over a designed space, there’s a touch of something daring and very often the bold element is achieved through wallpaper. Don’t be intimidated by the idea of enhancing your home with this latest trend. And no, it is not the same dated wall coverings in your grandmother’s home. Today’s wallpaper trends are much more versatile and affordable. Here’s five ways wallpaper can boost your home decor.
If you only want to dip your toe in this trend, we suggest adding wallpaper to the back of a shelving unit like your china cabinet, kitchen shelves, or secretary. We suggest picking something that will complement what’s on display.
When you’re ready to get knee deep, consider an accent wall. Wallpaper in a bedroom behind the bed can really create a dramatic statement upon entering the room.
Or perhaps you want to create a feature wall in your living area.
Another way to add a small dose of the trend is to wallpaper a small bathroom or powder room. Because these rooms are small, this a great way to get maximum impact with minimum budget and effort. Think of it as the statement earring to your perfectly coordinate outfit; the wallpapered powder room is the perfect accent to your curated home.
Another option you may have never considered—the ceiling!
If you’re ready to dive in, we’ll absolutely support you wallpapering your entire room. Our favorite room to see fully covered is a dining room. Although paper doesn’t have to be formal, carrying it throughout a room does lend a sense of decorum and what better space to do that in than a dining room?
If the full room is too much, consider adding a chair rail and wallpapering the top half of the room.
