Though wallpaper is far from being a permanent commitment, you won’t want to repaper a room every year. It’s important to choose a paper you can live with for a while.
Here are some tips for incorporating wallpaper to achieve your design goals and complement your home’s personality.
1. Make an Oversized Room Feel Cozier
Use wallpaper to create a more intimate feel in large rooms with high ceilings. This expansive bedroom is elegant without sacrificing coziness.
2. Make a Small Space Feel Larger
Metallic papers add movement and reflective effects, immediately making a space feel more dynamic and larger.
3. Warm Up A Room with Texture
Textured wallpapers, like grasscloth, can warm up a room and create a rich, layered sophistication.
4. Create a Focal Point
A large, bold print can sometimes be overwhelming on four walls, but using wallpaper to cover a single wall is a great way to create a stunning focal point in a room.
5. Make Low Ceilings Seem Higher
Try a vertical stripe to open up rooms with low ceilings. A crisp stripe, like this one, will give the illusion of height.
6. Make a Statement
Don’t be afraid to use big, bold geometrics to add vibrancy and energy to a dull space.
