Gone are the days of the bright yellow wallpaper that you remember from your grandmother’s house. It’s time to give wallpaper another chance as an alternative to paint. Here’s how to choose a wallpaper that will work best in your home.

The idea of backdrop evokes sentiments of sentimentality for a few. What’s more, torment for other people. Evacuating backdrop can be a painful procedure, which causes individuals to swear off backdrops for eternity. That, or on the other hand, they consider backdrop’s huge and striking flower designs more fit to a club than their home. However, backdrops are on a rebound, and some structures and styles will fit practically any individual’s taste.

It’s much easier to add a bit of whimsy to a home by using wallpaper that’s accented by a cheeky or ironic object. Paint doesn’t get the message across as easily. A traditional wallpaper design can instantly convey a solemn and formal mood.

Making the Right Design

Bold wallpaper prints catch the eye and make a statement for homeowners wishing to present their walls as art. However, these types of designs can become dated and lead to buyers remorse down the line.
Subtle designs and those that mimic organic objects have more staying power and are less likely to clash with furniture or wall art. Be careful when selecting small patterns as they can be challenging to line up when installing wallpaper panels next to each other.

Wallpaper with a more textured and patterned look can help hide imperfections in a wall surface. They look best in a casual room like a den or bedroom.

A flat and smooth wallpaper design offers a more refined look and works best in a formal area like an entryway or dining room. If you want the flat look, but your walls are too rough, use a wall linerwhich will provide a smooth surface for your wallpaper.

Here are some other tips for choosing a wallpaper design:

  • Horizontal stripes will widen a room and make the ceiling look lower.
  • Vertical stripes add volume to a room and make the ceiling appear higher.
  • A wallpaper with a light background will make a room seem spacious. Conversely, a darker wallpaper will make a room appear smaller.
  • Larger wallpaper patterns make rooms look cosy are best suited for one wall in a larger room.
