[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”] When you’re thinking about redecorating a room, it’s easy to think that paint is the best way to change your walls. But what if you want something more than just a color change? One of the quickest and most transformative ways to spice up your home is with wallpaper! Wallpaper goes far beyond what can be done with paint, and offers many more options to really create that ‘WOW’ factor. A lot of people think of wallpaper as clumsy or outdated, but these recent trends prove that it is anything but out of style! You don’t have to think of stuffy hotels or your grandma’s living room anymore; when done right, wallpaper can be delightfully modern and beautiful! Whether you’re looking for a temporary or permanent change, your options are endless when using wallpaper. Check out some of the latest trends that will take your home from ordinary to extraordinary!

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”] Despite the seemingly bold look, geometrics can be very versatile in your space! They work great to give your room a clean, simple, and ordered look. If you’re looking for a sophisticated look, try a monochromatic pattern. To add a bold statement, go for a colorful eye-catching style. If filling your entire room with colors and patterns sounds too overpowering, try filling a smaller space such as an accent wall or the inside of a bookcase.

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”] Floral and botanical prints are commonly used for feminine spaces, but florals can also be super modern when you choose a style that has bold graphical patterns or a more conceptual print. Choosing a pattern that incorporates foliage, or that is somewhat neutral in color, can keep your space from feeling too feminine. Make sure your floral patterns match your room size: small, tight patterns work best for small spaces such as laundry rooms or bathrooms, while large patterns are great for more open spaces like living rooms. Because of the scenic nature of florals, the patterns flow naturally and continuously across your walls and remove the panel effect!

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”] Wallpaper that creates the illusion of natural, neutral materials can add interest to your space without being overpowering. You can use a subtle, neutral pattern, or opt for a style that replicates a building material you’d find in architecture. Wallpaper styles that simulate concrete, wood, or planked walls can add character without having to spend the time and money to install the real thing!

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”] Temporary or removable wallpaper is a great option for renters or those who aren’t yet ready to commit. It uses an adhesive to stick to the walls, but don’t worry! It peels off quickly and easily when you’re ready to remove it. You can use it to re-do an entire room, or simply add a pop of color with an accent wall. The beauty of removable wallpaper is that you’re able to re-design your space as often as you’d like with very little hassle! There are thousands of designs and patterns available, so be creative!
