Yes, choosing the right wallpaper for your interior can feel a bit daunting, we get that. However, if you allow yourself time to explore the multitude of choices out there and keep in mind a few simple aesthetic guidelines, you’ll find the type of wallpaper that fits your design much quicker than you’d expect.
First, make sure the pattern you’re looking at matches the style of the room you plan to paper. If the design of your room is contemporary, try bold geometrics with metallic accents or a 3D wallpaper that enhances the impression of your room’s depth. However, if you plan to paper a romantic, French-inspired room, consider a floral wallpaper with fine lines in pastel colours.
One vs. Four
Next, decide how you want to use the wallpaper in the room. Whether that’s a statement wallpaper on one wall of your living area or wallpaper that covers the entire room, here’re a few things to keep in mind:
If you want to highlight a specific area of your room, choose a dramatic pattern that will add a pop of colour and style to it. If you have a wall that’s architecturally interesting or a focal point (such as an amazing window, a fireplace or a stylish sofa), don’t think twice, an accent wall is what you should go for.
There’re rooms that don’t call for an accent wall, though. If that’s the case, then you should consider covering all four walls. Use simple, large-scale designs that will not overwhelm your room, or bring in a trendy twist by using wallpaper in a fun pattern or unexpected motif.
Type of Paper
After deciding on the colour and style of the pattern you want, the next step is to choose the right backing of the wallpaper. We recommend a non-woven backing over the multitude of other options for the simple fact that it will be fully strippable when you want a change.
Another great advantage of this type of wallpaper is its washable and breathable material. You don’t need to worry about mould with it and it’s also very easy to install, doesn’t tear easily and comes off the wall in one long strip.
