It can be a nice change to add some pattern to the hallway walls, instead of keeping them simple. Wallpaper lets you do that and allows you complete freedom in choosing the theme, color, design and the mood you’re trying to create.

For the bathroom, the options include a variety of interesting designs. Depending on the color scheme and style you’ve chosen for the room, you can opt for wallpaper that has a playful look or for something more neutral and abstract. There should be a harmonious balance throughout.

Casual living room.

In the living room, the décor needs to be somewhere between formal and casual. It has to be elegant but to also feel comfortable and welcoming. Choose wallpaper that makes a statement and use it on a single accent wall.

Cozy bedroom.

In the bedroom you should try to create an intimate and relaxing ambiance. Use wallpaper that represents trees, waves and other soothing images. Applying wallpaper on all the walls can be a bit too much so focus on the wall behind the bed.

Colorful stairs.

As we’ve mentioned, wallpaper doesn’t necessarily have to be used on walls. Use it to give your staircase a makeover. Use a different pattern and color for each step and mix and match designs for a unique look.

Attractive drawers.

Another creative idea is to use wallpaper to decorate your drawers. Either use it to line the interior of the drawers or to reveal a beautiful design when they’re pulled out and the sides become visible.
