When you a tired of a plain paint job and need something to liven up a room, wallpaper can help do that! Here are a few things to keep in mind when you are deciding what kind to use:
How Committed Are You? - First decide how long you may have the paper up. Using prepasted and unpasted styles are worth the work to put up if the design is timeless and will be there a while. If you are trying something new and bold, peel-and-stick wallpapers are easier to hang and remove.
Prioritize Pattern - The smaller the pattern (and the more it repeats) the easier it is to apply. Some designs line up on all sides, and some on one. Then, there are random styles that look good no matter how they land. Decide on what will suit your needs and what you really want to work with.
What Style is for You? - If you need the room to appear larger, a graphic print or stripes with a white background will help. Rich colors and eye-catching patterns will perk up overlooked areas in a room or bring dimension to a space.
Other Uses for Pretty Paper - Wallpaper can help spice up all sorts of things in a room. You can add it to the backs of bookshelves, to the top of a console table or even on stair risers. Use your imagination and then add some pretty paper to spruce up your space!
