                   How to Choose the Right Wallpaper


Gone are the days of the bright yellow wallpaper that you remember from your grandmothers house. It’s time to give wallpaper another chance as an alternative to paint. Here’s how to choose a wallpaper that will work best in your home.


The thought of wallpaper elicits feelings of nostalgia for some. and pain for others. Removing wallpaper can be an arduous process, which makes people swear off wallpaper forever. Or, they only think of wallpaper as big and bold floral patterns more suited to a casino than their home. But wallpaper is on a comeback, and there are designs and styles that will fit almost any person’s taste.


It’s much easier to add a bit of whimsy to a home by using wallpaper that’s accented by a cheeky or ironic object. Paint just doesn’t get the message across as easily. A traditional wallpaper design can instantly convey a serious and formal mood.


Bold wallpaper prints catch the eye, and make a statement for homeowners wishing to present their walls as art. But these types of designs can become dated and lead to buyers remorse down the line.


 

Subtle designs, and those that mimic organic objects, have more staying power and are less likely to clash with furniture or wall art. Be careful when selecting small patterns as they can be difficult to line up when installing wallpaper panels next to each other.


Wallpaper with a more textured and patterned look can help hide imperfections in a wall surface. They look best in a casual room like a den or bedroom.



Wallpaper is the most on-trend way to transform your decor, from a statement wall to an entire room, there is no better way to restyle your interior this season. But with such a bountiful abundance of designs to choose from, patterned to plain, muted to multicolours, metallic to textured, holographic to photographic, it is almost impossible to know where to start.
