Wallpapers are becoming a popular option when remodeling homes. They can be very visually appealing and mood-inducing. You can make your space more interesting by adding various colors, textures, or patterns to your walls. Additionally, depending on what style wallpaper you choose, you can give your home a certain vibe- modern, traditional, country etc. With the right pattern, wallpapers can help make your room seem larger or smaller. So which pattern to choose?
There are various kinds of wallpaper patterns that we grouped into several categories. Below you’ll find a short description of each one.
To form a subtle backdrop and add just a tad of pattern to the color, think small prints. When small prints in light, cool colors are applied to the walls and ceilings, they can make your small room seem more spacious. On the other hand, if you choose smaller prints in darker, warm colors your room will seem smaller. Where to use small prints? Bathrooms, kitchens and other smaller spaces.
These prints make a statement! They are often bold and leave a lasting impression. They’re exciting and often remind us of wall art. At the same time, they can make a room seem smaller and cozier.
These large prints spread out over the colored background. They help to make the space larger, brightening and opening up any room. It’s like a breath of fresh air.
Need some order and consistency? Geometric prints will be right for you. They leave a lasting impression as they create a focal point in a room. Geometric prints can create a feel of continuous space when covering all walls. Larger geometric patterns are usually striking, while smaller geometric prints are more delicate.
Classic choice. Stripes, or vertical lines, are timeless. Whether you need bold, thick lines or pinstripes, they can create a perfect background. There are two-tone lines as well as multicolored stripes. Vertical lines help make the room seem taller and the ceiling higher.
There’s a great variety of horizontally striped wallpaper, with various colors and feels. It’s often used to make a room seem wider. It also makes your decor elements stand out.
Wallpapers with diagonal stripes create a sense of movement. They’re dynamic, playful, and very different from others. Remember that you can hung any striped wallpaper diagonally!
Textures add life and character to the walls. You can create shadows and play with colors to make the walls even more appealing. Textures can help you add depth to your room.
There are many benefits to using a wallpaper. It’s durable, easy to clean, atmosphere-inducing and fun. But there is one more advantage of using wallpapers - it can cover cracks and other imperfections on your walls!
Accidents happen. Especially when you have small children or pets. Toys hitting the walls, doors being slammed. We’ve all been there. But walls with holes or dents can be an eye-sore and affect the overall look of your home. Maybe these imperfections are too small for drywall. Painting over them won’t help either. What else could you do to give your walls a fresh look? Consider using a wallpaper. You can give your walls a new life.
Wallpapers have been around since the 18th century. They’ve been used, overused, and forgotten. But now they’re back in style. That is partially due to the immense variety of wallpapers available on the market today. There are various colors, designs, patterns and textures for every taste and budget.
Slightly cracked, dented or simply imperfect walls can be transformed with wallpaper. Using a solid-colored wallpaper will not do the trick as it will accentuate any groove or bump. However, textured or patterned wallpapers are a great option! Bold designs have a lot of contrast and depth, which works great to cover any bumps. Repetitive patterns have a similar effect. They work well to cover cracks and small holes. Another great option for camouflaging bumps and grooves are wallpapers with 3-D patterns.
While using patterned wallpaper can help you hide imperfections on your wall, it doesn’t fix them. If there’s a larger problem, such as wall fissures or water damage, wallpaper is not the remedy. At that point, you should contact professional contractors to get your walls repaired.
Always remember that even after applying a patterned wallpaper, the smallest imperfections when looked at from just the right angle and the right light, might still be visible. However, the overall look of the wall will be much better than before.
