Selecting the Perfect Wallpaper Pattern to Compliment Your Home

Selecting the Perfect Wallpaper Pattern to Compliment Your Home

Wallpaper can be a fun addition to any space. Wallpaper can accent a room or be a design focal point. It can also really add a punch of color and interest to your walls.

If you've been wanting to install wallpaper in your home, there are a few key things to consider. From where to put it, what pattern to go with, and how to install it, this guide will go over everything you need to know about selecting the perfect wallpaper for your home.

Choose Wallpaper Patterns to Match Your Room Style

Choosing the right wallpaper patterns for your home is a big decision. Whether you want to go with a big wow factor or a more delicate romantic pattern, can set the tone for the entire room.

You want the wallpaper you choose to match the style of your room. The wallpaper should be an accent and an enhancement to the room instead of a clash. The perfect wallpaper will really tie the entire room together.

If you have a light and romantic room, a delicate floral in muted or light colors can be a pretty choice. If you'd like to go with a fashion-forward, bold look, go for big geometric patters or large scale prints.

Metallics and glossy finishes will also make bold walls stick out. For a more traditional room, go with stripes or a detailed damasks pattern. You can also have wall decals or wall murals in your home.

Think About How You Will Use Your Wallpaper

Another important consideration is where you will use your wallpaper. If you’re using your wallpaper to accent a wall in your dining room or to paper your new nursery, the looks will probably be very different.

Think about where you want to use the wallpaper and how you’d like to use it. For an accent wall, you may want to go bolder so that the accent wall stands out. If you’re papering an entire room, something more subtle might go well.

Remember that just because a room is small doesn’t mean you can’t make a statement with a big and bold wallpaper pattern. A feature wall can add some texture, interest or color to a room without overpowering it.

You can also use wallpaper with a chair rail or wainscoting. Either of these may need a different type of wallpaper to make sure it contrasts well.

Consider the Wallpaper Installation

The use of wallpaper is definitely a trend that is here to stay. After you’ve decided on a pattern and how you’re going to use your new wallpaper, consider the installation.

There are several different types of wallpaper included ones you paste to the wall, woven-backed paper, non-woven paper, and even peel and stick wallpaper.

There are also different textures of wallpapers. While some wallpapers are flat, others have some dimension to them.
