When it comes to decorating your home, there are many directions you can go. Some people prefer neutral colors, some make a statement with furniture pieces and art, and others choose more subtle changes like lighting or accessories.
While I’m certainly not against any of these options, today I want to talk about the lesser-used, but equally as effective, option of wallpapering. It’s an easy solution that can instantly add style and beauty to any room. Here are some ways wallpaper for homes can help you solve design problems in your home:
Add Color to A Small Space
Wallpaper is a great way to add color to a small space. This can be especially useful in the bathroom, kitchen, and bedroom. In these rooms, it’s important to avoid clutter but also consider how you want your room to feel. If you are going for an earthy vibe in your kitchen, adding wallpaper with some rustic elements will give you the look and feel that you desire.
The colors on the wall can also affect how large or small your room feels so think about what color combinations work best for each space before committing yourself fully!
Make a Room Feel Larger
Wallpaper is an absolute must-have when it comes to making a small room look larger. This is because wallpaper offers the unique ability to make an entire wall seem like one big piece of art. You can use patterned paper to create a focal point or stripe design, which will draw your eye right into the center of the room and make it feel larger than it is.
Create a Focal Point
When it comes to design, the best thing you can do is create a focal point. It’s what gives your room its personality and sets the tone for how everything else will be arranged. You could use wallpaper to create this focal point in three ways: hanging it on an accent wall or two; using it to cover an entire room; or using it as a subtle background behind furniture or art.
If you want the wallpaper itself to be your focal point, think about how much space you have available and whether any other things in your room might detract from its impact, such as windows. If not, go ahead and cover as much of one wall as possible with patterned paper with bold colors—it’ll look great when lit up by daylight!
Add Texture to a Room
Wallpaper can add texture to a room in several different ways. Wallpaper can be textured on one side or both sides, and it comes in many different patterns that mimic natural materials such as wood, stone, and metal. Some wallpapers have interesting textures that look like fabric or brick.
Unify A Hodgepodge of Furniture and Decor
If you have a hodgepodge of furniture and decor, there are ways to unify them with the right wallpaper. Using a similar color scheme, pattern, style, texture or material can help pull your space together. If you aren’t sure where to begin when narrowing down what to use as a common thread in your design scheme, then study the details of each item and pick out one or two things that stand out most. Your wallpaper should reflect these qualities.
For example: You have an eclectic mix of mid-century modern furniture and classic French chandeliers hanging above your dining room table but also just fell in love with a bold graphic print from our Avant-Garde collection for its clean lines and modern vibes—not quite sure how all three will work together? Focus on utilizing elements like neutrals, like gray, with pops of color throughout your home so that each piece has its own distinct aesthetic without being too busy or overwhelming ____just enough contrast.
Cover Up Imperfections in Walls
Wallpaper can help hide imperfections in walls. If there are any imperfections in the wall, like a spot where the paint has chipped, wallpaper is a great solution to cover it up. Wallpaper also works well if your walls are too smooth and shiny, or have an unnatural texture that doesn’t match your decorating style.
Wallpaper as a design feature can also be used to create something unexpected for people walking into your home for the first time!
Wallpaper is an easy way to make an impact in your home
Wallpaper is a great way to add color, texture, and a focal point to a room. It’s an easy way to make a big impact in your home without having to do any heavy lifting.
Wallpaper can make a room feel larger than it is because of its ability to reflect light patterns throughout the space. This makes wallpaper perfect for rooms with low ceilings that need some visual relief from their narrow dimensions.
Wallpapers come in so many different patterns and designs you can choose something that will complement your design style while still being unique enough not to feel out of place among other decor pieces in your home or office. Peel and stick floral wallpapers are a great way of adding a warm feeling to a room, and their ease of installing and removing makes them highly convenient.
Use Wallpaper to Solve all Kinds of Design Problems
The best part about wallpaper is that it’s temporary, so you can experiment with different designs and colors until you find the one that’s right for your home. It’s also a cost-effective way to transform a space in just a few hours!
Wallpapers add character to any room in the house: kitchens, bathrooms—even bedrooms! A bright accent wall can give even an otherwise plain-looking room some life so that not only does everything look good together but also feels cohesive too; no need for extra accessories when everyone knows what their role in this house should be because everything else already matches perfectly well.
So, head on to Love vs. Design and get yourself the perfect wallpapers for your walls. If you think you might need any help selecting a wallpaper pattern, do not hesitate to contact support and ask for help.
