Beautiful wallpaper rarely goes unnoticed; whether it’s the bold pattern or the unique design of the wallpaper. As opposed to a painted room, a room decorated with wallpaper can inspire a mood or ambience with the designer’s unique patterns.
In the 1970’s and 80’s wallpaper was at its peak. It was considered a popular option for many houses in North America. Its popularity waned due to exaggerated and “tacky” patterns that took over the market. In 2018, this has changed. Now more people are choosing wallpaper and it is evident that designer wallpaper is making a huge come-back among home owners, interior designers and the younger generation in search of more meaningful and personalized decor.
At SS Tile & Stone we understand that many first time buyers of wallpaper are not exactly sure how to match wallpaper design with furniture or the overall aesthetics of a room. This is why SS Tile & Stone offers you excellent customer service and advice on your selection when you are in our showroom. Below, we provide four tips on how to choose your wallpape
DESIGNER WALLPAPER | TONE WITH TONE
When you are decorating an entire room with wallpaper that has a strong pattern, color or both, a good ground rule is to use the same color of the wallpaper with other objects in the room. You can still vary the prints with other objects in the room but the general color of the wallpaper needs to be the same as predominant objects. This avoids the feeling of the room being cluttered.
BE CREATIVE | BREAK THE DESIGN
Another option when trying to tone down a strong pattern of wallpaper is to put the wallpaper in panels so the patterns have a break between spaces. This allows for more neutral space in the room, which softens the strong patterns of the wallpaper
CHOOSING PATTERNS | STAY WITH NEUTRALS
Neutrals usually match together perfectly, giving a more serious upscale look to any interior design. Having a strong pattern usually takes up all the attention in a room and having neutral colors help the focus remain on the aesthetics of the design and patter
CHOOSING COLOURS FOR WALLPAPER | COLOUR CONTRAST
One of the designers’ favorites is to play around with textures and colors. Strong patterns with neutral colors can provide stylish looks by implementing a splash of vibrant colors like red or green into a room. Contrasting colors can also have a powerful effect in your home’s interior, because it makes a statement and can also make a room look more spacious.
