Fun, Unique Wallpaper Choices for Room Transformation
Updated: Apr 23
As one of the easiest and quickest ways to transform a space, decorative wallpaper has made a huge comeback in the design industry in the last few years. Now, we have more wallpaper styles than we used to. With different material types and color combinations, there are so many versatile ways to make each room of the house unique.
The beauty of wallpaper is that it can have so many different effects on the room overall. It can give even the most basic of rooms that special look and feel, adding character to a room with color, style, and texture. For example, if you want a little drama and excitement, consider using a textured bold, graphic pattern, or add a paper with a metallic sheen. If you want a calm environment instead, add a soft-colored grass cloth. Alternatively, a nice damask or chinoiserie pattern will give a room personality and impact.
With so many choices, how do you decide which wallpaper style to choose? First, consider the size of the room, and determine if you want to create a focal point that draws the eye. To create a mood and feel that fills the room, you might want to cover all four walls. For instance, a formal room can handle a more formal style, perhaps with a more sophisticated traditional motif or a subtle gilded paper. A den or other relaxed room can be decorated with a more fun and vibrant motif.
Unique Ways to Use Wallpaper
A good place to try something new is in the powder room. It’s a great place to experiment with color and have some fun – maybe even create something dramatic and powerful.
A boring closet is another great place to experiment. Imagine opening a closet to a decorative wallpaper. It’s a safe way to add some unexpected fun to a room.
Do you use a set of built-ins for convenient storage? If so, you can add interest by wallpapering the backs of the units.
Another area that can’t be ignored is the ceiling. If you want to showcase artwork on the walls, then wallpapering the ceiling is a convenient and unique solution.
