Check out any home decorating magazine on the newsstand, and you’ll see that wallpaper has become a sophisticated way to add color, pizzazz, and design depth to a room. We know that choosing the perfect pattern can be overwhelming, so here are some expert tips to help you find the one that’ll make you love your home even more!
Get inspired. Before you head for the Design Center, peruse decorating magazines. Tear out the wallpaper ideas that immediately grab your attention. Or check out our New Classics online.
Establish an aesthetic. What look are you going for? Is it classic country? Updated traditional? Clean and modern? This answer will help filter your choices considerably.
Consider color. Oranges, yellows and reds create a warm, welcoming atmosphere, while greens, blues and purples lend a fresh, soothing feeling. Don’t want to commit to something so bold?
Go for a neutral palette. Sophisticated and timeless, neutrals will give you the artistic touch you’re after.
One wall or all? A fully wallpapered room makes a big statement. If subtle is more your style, think about creating a focal point on just one surface.
Size matters. Large, graphic patterns are the most dramatic, but can overpower a modest space. If your room is cozy, go for a small-scale pattern to make it feel more expansive.
Now that you have the design savvy, bring us your ideas and we’ll introduce you to your prints charming and the wide range of fabrics that coordinate, of course! Samples and pricing details are waiting for you at the Design Center. Take a peek at the New Classics wallpapers now.
