Picking a wallpaper design for your space can be really tough. Walking straight into a wallpaper shop can be daunting with hundreds of selection and this leaves you more confused.

Colors, styles, patterns and textures are all factors to consider. Knowing what to look for will help you make the best choices for your rooms. There are a lot of things that need to be considered, after all. This includes, among many other things, your budget, design preference, and the theme that you’re decorating.The wallpaper mural you choose can make a room appear bigger, warmer, and brighter and even hide imperfect elements. How then do you choose the wallpaper for your wall? Here are a couple of proven tips:

Wallpaper consideration #1: Decide your style

When deciding which wallpaper to use, the wallpaper style should go with the rest of your decor style. It should flow naturally with the rest of your space to create a cohesive feeling around the home. Some examples of popular interior decor includes:

  • Modern Japanese
  • Industrial style
  • Minimalist Style
  • Farmhouse
  • Art Decor

Wallpaper consideration #2: Take a Cue from Colour

Colour sets the mood in a room. To make a space appear larger and the ceiling higher, pick patterns with light-colour backgrounds, such as green, blue, or violet. Light colours suggest tranquillity, while dark colours colours are dramatic, makes the space look smaller. 

Comparing between warm and light colours. Warm dhades like orange, warm yellow and soft amber are ideal if you want a living space that sets the mood. If you entertain often, experiment with vibrant and exciting hues instead of cool colors like blue, that brings calmness to the space.

Wallpaper consideration #4: Scale

Small patterns create a feel of spaciousness, while large-scale designs make rooms more intimate. To make an empty room look more furnished, pick large-scale patterns with bright colours and bolder backgrounds.

Wallpaper consideration #5: Mix and Match

A room without pattern bores, while a room with too many patterns can cause restlessness. When playing with patterns, repeat the same colour or family of that colour, to make coordinating easy.
