5 Tips For Wallpapering Your Home

Interior Design & Decor

image for 5 Tips For Wallpapering Your Home

 

Sometimes painting alone doesn't quite cut it, especially if you wish to give your house that bit of a punch. Wallpapering your home is fun to experiment with, but of course there are aspects you need to throughly think through as well. Here are some tips and tricks we recommend to make your wallpapering experience that much smoother.

 

 

 

1. Be Bold

Since you have already decided on the unique approach of using wallpaper, you might as well go all out. Select wallpapers which stand out, rather than simple and meek designs, because that would defeat the purpose.

 

There are countless designs to choose from, so you'll definitely be spoilt for choice. Depending on the theme and colour scheme of your room or home, choose a design which would fit in with the entire outlook.

 

If you start feeling timid or overwhelmed by the sheer amount of selects, remember you chose wallpapering for a reason; simply because you want something more special than painted walls. Therefore, go forth and trust your instincts, and choose for something eye-catching that would bring out your room's design.

 

 

 

2. Sparingly Is Key

Beware not to get too caught up when planning to wallpaper your house. Sometimes, you may find yourself a little too in love with some of the wallpaper designs, so much so you wish to plaster them on all four walls of the rooms.

 

This may not be the best idea, as too much of it may overwhelm the space, causing an opposite effect and making the area look much less pleasant than intended. Instead, select a feature wall, and wallpaper just that area. It makes your wallpaper look more outstanding in the end, especially if you choose a right and suitable shade for the other three walls.

 

 

 

3. Mix And Match

If you really must have more than one feature wall, perhaps you can look into mixing and matching. This actually overrules our first tip of going as bold as possible, because in this case you have to stick to the more minimalistic designs.

 

There are various ways you can go about mixing and matching. Firstly, you can use one design per wall, of course providing they match. Or, you could use a mix of wallpapers on the same wall, alternating them in patterns like stripes.

 

Another option you could consider, is matching wallpapers with other textures. One feature wall may be done up with wallpaper, sitting next to a wall which consists of textured tiles or bricks, giving your room a pop if these elements compliment one another.

 

 

 

4. Wallpaper Other Objects

Wallpapers aren't just for walls, you can creatively use them on other objects as well, such as drawers, shelves or cupboard doors. When these items are leaning against a wall that's covered in similar wallpaper, it gives the area a three dimensional feel.

 

You don't necessarily have the use the same wallpaper throughout as well. Imagine you have a stack of drawers, but each drawer door is plastered with a different wallpaper, providing you with a colorful end product. This results in a piece of quirky furniture that's uniquely yours.

 

There are many ways with which this tip can work, and it all depends on how creatively you use and match your wallpaper on all sorts of furniture.

 

 

 

5. Sampling

Wallpapering costs a lot of money and work, so you have to be extremely sure it fits your room decor. Regretting your choices after purchase, or worse,after having plastered it onto your wall, is a situation you definitely want to avoid.

 

Save all that wasted time and effort by asking stores for wallpaper samples. Then, place them against the rooms you wish to wallpaper, making it easier for you to envision if they'll fit nicely with the entire setting.

 

Note down your ideas and choices, as well as the room measurements, before making final decisions. Once you're absolutely sure, proceed to purchase the wallpapers.

 

These tips can be used alone or interchangeably, depending on the theme of your home and how heavily you want it wallpapered. At the end of the day, the most important part lies in the fun of seeing what you can do with so many wallpaper options.
