Once relegated to home design trends of the past, wallpaper is coming back into style once again. However, the current styles are much more understated than those of the past, making it easy to incorporate this trend in your home. Rather than painting your walls, consider using wallpaper to update the look of your home.
Benefits of Wallpaper
There are a few key reasons why wallpaper is becoming a popular choice for homeowners these days. Not only is it easy to install, but it is also affordable. Many wallpaper styles are even removable, so you can feel free to change up the look of your home without having to scrape the old paper off your walls.
Making the Most of Wallpaper
With so many styles available on the market today, it is easy to find a wallpaper that will look great in your home. Take a look at the furniture in the room you want to wallpaper to guide you in choosing a color scheme. Once you have narrowed down your options, it will be easier to select an appropriate pattern or shade that will work with what you already have.
If the furniture in the room is patterned, you’ll likely want to stick to a relatively simple wallpaper to prevent the overall look from becoming too busy. If your furniture is simple, on the other hand, you can opt for a bold print, which is right on trend at the moment. The wallpaper will be the statement piece for the room, so you won’t have to worry about adding too much decor.
For an even more unique look, try adding bold, patterned wallpaper on just a single wall, leaving the other three walls in the room plain. You can paint them in a color that echoes the wallpaper or choose a solid wallpaper that complements the patterned one. The possibilities are endless, but try to keep everything in the same color family for a cohesive look.
You could also wallpaper only the bottom half of the walls, leaving the top half plain. Again, keep the two portions in a similar color family to tie everything together. This technique is especially effective in bathrooms, entryways and hallways, though you can use the style just about anywhere in your home.
