Wallpaper ABC’s


Using wallpapers in decorating the wall has been very popular because of its easy application and at the same time, its effects to the long and lonely-looking space filled with cracks, stains, and other blemishes. Wallpapers possess qualities that many homeowners love. Aside from being very stylish, they are proven to be durable too. Just select among the varied designs (from classic, floral, plain, to elegant, country, and sophisticated) and discover the wonders that wallpapers bring to your home’s design.

Now, if you have already said yes to using wallpaper, do not right away hurry to the wallpaper store. First and foremost, determine what kind of effect you would want to see in the wallpaper. When you are working in a little room and would want to create a look that makes it larger, use those with small designs or with printed styles. Thus, if you are decorating a child’s room, try looking for wallpapers with small balls in it. This will now make your child’s room look bigger with the wallpaper in it. More so, to create the same effect, choose colors that light.

On the other hand, wallpapers with big designs, in contrast with smaller ones, make the room look smaller. With this, when it comes to the colors, select darker colors. This will make the room look cozier. The basement, as well as the family lounge can be applied with such wallpapers to make the rooms look warm. Then, to make a room look high-ceilinged, try using vertical stripes. A narrow room will eventually seem wider than it really is.

Also, since you are going for colors that suit a particular mood that you think will fit the room, go for colors and their visual effects. For a warmer atmosphere, consider earth colors such as gold, soft reds, browns, oranges, etc. Moreover, those with stronger shades bring about action and drama. Thus, warm colors perfectly go with the kitchen and the breakfast area. For cool colors like blue, purple, green, and others, a fresh and calming atmosphere is being related. Hence, this is suitable for bathrooms.

With regards active areas like play rooms, try using wallpapers with bright colors. In contrast, study rooms and bedrooms, which are usually aligned with softer hues will need subdued colors like gray, black, or white. Nevertheless, whatever color you will be choosing, the whole decision is just up to you. In a one-time application, without utilizing messy materials, you can have a whole new atmosphere in your home.
