Wallpaper Ideas For Modern Homes

Wallpaper might seem outdated to some people. However, wallpapering is still a very popular choice, and is particularly good at bringing colour and intricate patterns into the home. We thought it would be a good idea to put together some ideas. Use this as inspiration to plan your interior design project.

Why Choose Wallpaper?

There are loads of great reasons to opt for wallpapering over painting. If the condition of your walls is anything less than perfect, you’ll achieve a better finish with wallpaper. Even matte paint will show some imperfections if there are cracks or dents in the plaster. Unlike paint, you’ll also benefit from better durability. While paint can become chipped in the event of something like furniture bumping it, wallpaper tends to hold up better.

You also have a much wider choice of textures and patterns. If you’re looking for something quirky and different, you can choose a wallpaper that’s beaded, glittery, metallic or even velvety. As well as that, there’s a huge range of intricate patterns available in a myriad of colours.

Wallpaper For Feature Walls

There’s no better way to make a feature wall stand out than with wallpaper. You can choose a design that’s as loud as you like. Plus, if you ever decide to change or remove your feature wall, it’s much quicker and simpler to remove wallpaper than brightly coloured paint.

You can also use it to bring life to unique architectural features like alcoves and unusually shaped walls.

Is This A DIY Job?

While many people will turn their hand to hanging their own wallpaper, it can be very difficult to do right. It’s very important to ensure that you’re hanging each piece completely level and that you’re matching the pattern up perfectly. You also want to make sure that each roll of paper comes from the same batch, or you could get an inconsistent result.

Wallpapering is a task best left to a professional if you’re looking for a perfect outcome. We can hang decorative paper quickly, simply and without leaving any mess.
