Tips for Choosing Wallpapers for Home

Civil Engineer / Content Writer

Wallpaper is a great way of bringing multiple colours and tones into a room rather than committing to one single paint colour. The wallpaper you choose can make a room appear bigger, warmer, and brighter and even hide imperfect elements. Choose wallpaper of right type and design so that you can enhance the appearance and visual appeal of any room. However, with endless patterns, designs and colours available, choosing which wallpaper to buy can become intimidating.

Using Stripes:

Reducing the Size of Large Room:

A large pattern can dominate the decoration in a room as it will seem to bring the walls toward a viewer, to reduce the feeling of space. In a small room, a large pattern can be overpowering, but in a big room, it can help to create a warm feeling.

Creating a Feeling of Space:

A small pattern of wallpaper design has the effect of making a room appear larger, as long as the background colour of the wallpaper is light. The less dense the pattern, the greater the effect. Even if it is a small scale, a dense pattern creates a busy feel within a room.
