Buying wallcoverings for the first time isn’t as daunting as you think. Here are must-know tips from experts to help you out:
Pick a color
Decide on your color palette for the room. Then use that to determine what shades or hues will work great for your wallpaper. Want something cool and tranquil for that space? Go for soft cool colors. Intense cool colors, on the other hand, can give you a fresh and dramatic vibe. Warm colors, on the other hand, look inviting and are great for colder climates.
Play with the light
Some types of wallcoverings reflect light back. You might want to consider having these added to your office, living room or bedroom walls, depending on the effect you want to achieve for each of those rooms. Also, the colors you pick can affect the brightness or darkness in a room. Dark colors tend to absorb light, says the BHG. That’s going to make for a smaller and dark-looking room while bright colors make your spaces roomier.
Have scratches, marks or dents on your walls? Not to worry. Go for wallpaper that can easily cover these up. Put them in place and you’ll instantly turn that old, worn-out looking wall into something else. If you want to hide any imperfections in your walls, then shopping for wallpaper and putting them up is an easy solution.
Go for the right style
If you’re going for something fun, then pick a bright motif with small spaced designs like polka dots, boats, bananas or pineapples. Some pastoral views, on the other hand, can lend a classy and romantic vibe to your living room. Large, bold designs in accent walls can make for an excellent and visually arresting addition to your home. You could also try mixing and matching patterns and styles for more fun and lovely results.
