Choosing Your Wallpaper
Wallpaper can make or break a room, adding more dimension through patterns and colors. It’s what can lead the design of a room and make it special. You can use bold prints and colors or choose a wallpaper that features more earthy elements like woven grass, wood grain, metallic, cork, and botanicals. Schumacher provides some of our favorite wallpapers with a wide variety of textures, colors, and patterns.
When creating a bolder look, geometric and patterned wallpaper can add another layer to a room giving it more depth and a unique flare. Features like metallic are best used in darker, smaller spaces because it is a great way to add sheen to a room, allowing the walls to help reflect the light. Other prints such as florals and botanicals are excellent for more feminine spaces or a children’s rooms.
As to where to add these different styles of wallpaper? Don’t be afraid to be bold and let your walls make a statement, especially if you want it to be the focal point of a room! A bathroom, powder room, or laundry room can be great places to experiment with a brighter, more patterned wallpaper to bring life to a smaller area. Natural and earthy textured wallpapers are excellent for larger rooms.
