9 Unexpected Places to Put Wallpaper in Your Home

9 Unexpected Places to Put Wallpaper in Your Home

When it comes to increasing the aesthetic value of a room, wallpaper can add so much more in mood, character, and style than a simple coat of paint. Unique wallpaper is also a great way to explore your creative side with opportunities for innovative design in a number of unexpected places. If you’re considering wallpapering your home but don’t know where to start, here are nine places where wallpaper can make a wonderful addition:

  1. On a Paneled Wall: Because wallpaper requires such careful installation, often people are afraid of adorning tricky walls with wallpaper. This is where expert designers and installers can make wallpaper in any space a possibility. Paneled walls and uniquely-shaped walls make for some of the most striking wallpapered spaces. With the right fit, paneled walls can make wallpaper look as if it was specially-made to fit the space, like this rich, above-the-eye gardenscape.

  3. Behind the Master Bed: Wallpaper doesn’t have to line the walls of every room, not even in the master bedroom. In this bedroom, custom-made cloth wallpaper provides a deep purple and blue color palette for the entire room with just one accent wall. In this bedroom, an organic gold branch design brings a one-of-a-kind chandelier to life.

  5. Behind Open Shelving: With a subtle touch, wallpaper can add pattern and order to open shelving in a living room, kitchen, or even closet space. On the other hand, bold patterns can also be used to draw attention to sleek shelving and displays.
  6. In the Breakfast Nook: Add interest and liveliness to your breakfast nook with a slice of wallpaper.

  8. In the Closet: Bold wallpapers can add interest to otherwise forgotten side closets. They can also draw walk-in closets and bedrooms together, with seamlessly matching wallpaper.
  9. On the Ceiling: One of the most commonly ignored parts of the home but a great opportunity for creative design, the ceiling can make a wonderfully dreamy statement with starry wallpaper, playful lemon prints, or classic pattern work.

  11. In the Powder Room: Usually one of the most unassuming rooms in the home, the powder room can come alive with wallpaper. Striking jungle-themed wallpaper adds rich drama and a wealth of deep color to this small powder room, while this shibori wallpaper provides playful contrast to a classic white pedestal sink. You can update the coastal theme in your guest bathroom with gorgeously detailed nautical-themed wallpaper.
  12. In the Laundry Room: Laundry rooms deserve more fun, light, and excitement, which is where the right wallpaper can make all the difference. Update your laundry room with crisp, clean patterns or unexpectedly bold and bright statement walls.

  14. As its Own Work of Art: If you’ve found the ideal wallpaper, you can honor it as its own work of art by framing it on the wall or featuring it as a piece among other framed works of art. Framed wallpaper can add order and interest to any wall, from the hallway to the bedroom.

While wallpaper is often featured in entire dining rooms, living rooms, bedrooms, and other spaces, a touch of wallpaper in an expected place can make for a refreshing and long-lasting design statement.
