People seem to have mixed feelings about wallpaper. On the one hand, it’s not as easy to apply or alter as paint is. On the other hand, it can make a much bolder and more interesting statement than other wall design options. New Woman is sharing 10 innovative ways in which you can use the wallpaper to decorate your home in a different way.
Idea one: Same Colour Wallpaper
When painting a room, most people will paint all four walls the same colour. However, you can really change a room’s sense of dimension and mood by using wallpaper on just one of the room’s walls. Here a fun pattern ties into the rest of the room through shared colour but brings a bit of lightness and frivolity to space.
Idea Two: Striped Wallpaper To Create Extra Length
Striped wallpaper can be a great option for elongating a room. The choice here – to use wallpaper along a single wall and to extend the design across the floor – really elongates space. You can use coloured stripes or black and white ones depending on your design preferences.
Idea Three: Add Structure To The Room
Wallpaper can be used to bring texture to space. Here we have a great design that’s pure white. This is a good way to keep colour to a minimum on your walls without having boring walls that disappear into the background.
Idea Four: Bring The Feel of Nature
Wallpaper is a great way to bring the feeling of nature into your home without actually putting plants in the house. If you’re allergic to plants (or just have a brown thumb) then a nature-themed wallpaper choice can help you bring the outdoors in.
Idea Five: Put It On The Ceiling
Most people don’t think of putting wallpaper on the ceiling. However, a magnificent ceiling provides a unique sense of style for a room. Consider this underused design option when decorating with wallpaper.
Idea Six: Paste It Inside Your Closet
Another underused option is to wallpaper the closet. Most people ignore closet design since it’s not a space that guests will see. Precisely because of this, you can think of it as your own private place that you can decorate any way that you’d like. Choose a fun wallpaper that speaks to the dreamer in you and takes a moment each day to appreciate that side of yourself as you’re getting dressed in the morning.
