If you are a fan of interior design or home improvement and follow the trends through television and online media, you may feel like everything is about neutral colors and open concepts. Any additions of color or unique touches are minimal and in a removeable way. But if you are living in your forever home, you don’t want to feel like you are residing in a sterile environment. Wallpaper can add individuality to your home and expand small spaces, create an eye-catching feature, or showcase the personality of each person living in the spaces. With the largest wallpaper collection in all of Alabama, Rainbow Paint & Decorating can help you find the right design to match your personality. We’ll be happy to show you how to make a statement with wallpaper.
Some spaces in your home may be smaller than you’d like, especially smaller bathrooms and powder rooms. While they serve their functions, being in a small space doesn’t have to feel tight and claustrophobic. Adding some bold wallpaper can help expand the room, creating dynamic visuals that make the room seem vaster than it actually is. This can also work in small spaces such as closets. You most likely don’t spend much time in your home’s closets, but you can upgrade a small walk-in closet with bright wallpaper, creating a cozy dressing space.
A more common use of wallpaper is for accent features and focal points. When you want a space to be warm and inviting, four walls covered in a bold print can be overwhelming. However, with a well-chosen print that fits in with your décor, you can maintain the welcoming feeling of your home while adding a unique, eye-catching statement. Plus, a pop of color or design can enhance the current mood of the room, taking your design from modern, clean and neutral to warm, classy and happy.
While wallpaper is great for creating a statement piece that intrigues guests, there is another unique use for wallpaper that caters to the individual. If you have children, you are most likely familiar with a difficult bedtime routine. From storms to simple sleepless nights, your children lie awake, often getting up to seek your attention. On the other hand, if they had something to occupy their minds and distract them from the attempt to sleep, they may stay in bed and unknowingly give in to exhaustion. This could be accomplished by applying wallpaper to the ceiling in your child’s bedroom. As an added benefit, the process of searching for the right wallpaper with your child is a great bonding experience.
Finally, wallpaper isn’t just for decorating the walls of your home. You can also apply wallpaper to furniture and décor, updating older pieces to a new, fresh design. If you select a feature wall for your bedroom, consider upcycling an old shelf or dresser with accents of the same wallpaper. The same can be done in your living spaces by adding a backdrop of wall paper to entertainment cabinets or built-in bookshelves.
