How do I choose a matching plain wallpaper to complement patterned wallpaper?

The plain wallpaper variant should capture a recurrent color from the pattern to establish a cohesive and balanced visual arrangement. Alternatively, you can consider painting the remaining walls in one of the pattern's shades. 

When selecting the perfect shade for the plain wallpaper, especially in wall murals, it's essential to identify a specific color from the pattern. This choice not only fosters a harmonious ensemble but can also influence the room's layout and lighting conditions in a favorable manner.

Why choose plain wallpaper over paint?

  1. Bumps, cracks, or uneven surfaces, wallpaper acts as a protective layer that conceals these irregularities. The textured and patterned nature of wallpaper distracts the eye from minor flaws, creating a visually consistent appearance across the entire wall. This attribute is especially beneficial for older or unevenly surfaced walls, as well as in spaces where achieving a smooth finish with paint alone might be challenging. 

  1. Modern wallpapers are designed with ease of maintenance in mind, offering durability and the ability to withstand wear and tear. Their advanced manufacturing processes make them resilient to wear and tear, resisting scratches and impacts. These wallpapers are treated to withstand moisture, fading, and staining, allowing for effortless cleaning and upkeep.

  2. Wallpaper offers a diverse range of textures, patterns, and designs that paint cannot replicate, enabling you to achieve unique and intricate looks.
