How to Choose the Right Wallpaper for Your House



Gone are the days when you see dark-colored wallpaper on your grandparent’s house walls. Now you can use wallpaper as an alternative to paint.

You can add a bit of fancy touch to a home by using modern wallpaper and border, and it is quite very simple. Traditional wallpaper is an easy way to convey the mood of your space and to create a perfect ambiance, but paint just doesn’t do this across as easily.

Here’s how to choose wallpaper that will work best in your home.

Find the Right Design

If you want to present your walls like an art, then bold wallpaper prints can catch the eye. These wallpapers are the best ways to make your home walls a style statement. However, these types of designs can become old-fashioned and out-of-date and can lead to buyer’s regret down the line.

When you choose small patterns for your wallpapers, you should be careful as they can be difficult to line up when installing next to each other.

Wallpaper with a more textured and patterned look can help to hide flaws in a wall surface. They look best in a casual room like a bedroom. Modern wallpapers for bathrooms add life to their boring structure.

You can put a flat and smooth wallpaper design informal areas like dining rooms or entryway that offer a more sophisticated look. If you want the flat look but your walls are too rough, use a wall liner, which will provide a smooth surface for your wallpaper.

Here are some tips for choosing a wallpaper design:

  •    When you select horizontal stripes, they will broaden a room and make the ceiling look shorter.
  •    When you select vertical stripes, they will add volume to a room and make the ceiling appear higher.
  •    Larger wallpaper patterns make rooms look smaller are best suited for one wall in a larger room.

Pick Your Material

The easiest and most common wallpaper available is Vinyl wallpaper. These are easy to hang and clean, which makes them a great choice initially. It has a paper backing and paper surface, which is sealed with a liquid vinyl when installed.

Solid vinyl wallpaper, on the other hand, is completely waterproof and ideal for kitchens and bathrooms. This type of wallpaper can be more difficult to remove than other types, though. But they’re more expensive than vinyl and are best used carefully.

Measure Your Space

The toughest part of buying wallpaper is selecting the style you want. It should be predefined how much you need to purchase because that makes the process much easier.

Follow this way for buying wallpaper.

  •    You should measure your walls (multiply the height by the width of each wall in feet).
  •    You need to subtract all windows and doors covering areas.
  •    To make things go smoothly, buy an extra roll to make sure you have enough.

When you’re ready to choose wallpaper for a room, start by looking in magazines and other homes for designs that suit you and your home. You should consider the furniture in the room, and make a decision based on the look you want to achieve. Whether you want a classic country style or simple sober room, make a selection based on it.
