Wall paper is one of the most common ways to decorate a room. It can be a great way to add some personality and style to a space, but it’s important to choose the right wall paper for your bedroom.
Wall paper comes in so many different styles and patterns that you can practically find something that fits your taste. What’s more, wall paper adds depth and interest to any room—from bedrooms and bathrooms, to living rooms and kitchens.
Your Design Style for the Wall Paper in Your Bedroom
If you are building a new home, or even if you’re just redecorating your current bedroom, it’s important to determine what style your room is going to be. If you don’t know what kind of style you have already in mind, think about some of the other areas of your home that have been decorated recently. What styles do they possess? Is there any consistency between them?
If possible, go through old photographs and look at how rooms were decorated when you were growing up. Are there any themes you want to replicate from your childhood?
Finally, think about how many other parts of the world influence your design choices. Do you prefer modernist architecture over traditional colonial design? Are there certain colors or materials that stand out because they remind you of something significant?
What Color Palette Do You Want to Use?
When choosing a color palette for your bedroom, it’s important to start by understanding how colors interact.
There are two main ways of looking at color: complementary and analogous. Complementary colors are those directly across from each other on the color wheel, while analogous colors are ones that sit next to each other. In order to choose your perfect palette, understanding how these different relationships work can help you decide what looks best in your space.
Do You Want a Mural or a Repetitive Pattern?
You can choose a mural or a repetitive pattern. A mural is a large image that covers the entire wall, while a repetitive pattern is made up of smaller images repeated over the entire wall. Murals are more expensive because they require more time to create and cost more per square foot. However, if you want to make a bold statement with your bedroom decor, murals may be right for you!
If you want something less noticeable but still want to make an impact on your bedroom’s appearance, then consider using wall paper with repeat patterns instead. Repetitive patterns are less expensive than murals because they take less time and materials to create—and they’re easier on the wallet too!
How Big Is Your Room?
The size of your room is a primary factor in determining how much of a pattern or mural will cover the walls. The bigger your room, the more you can cover with a large pattern or mural. If you have an enormous room with high ceilings and large windows, then go for it! The larger the size, the more dramatic it will be.
If you have a small bedroom with lots of furniture and little space, then keep it simple and choose something subtle like wall paper borders or stripes instead. A small bedroom can also work well with bolder patterns if there are no other focal points such as beds or dressers that compete for attention on opposite sides of the room. For instance, one side has two beds next to each other while another side has nothing but wall space or just a few pieces of furniture.
Subtle vs. Bold Pattern
The boldness of a pattern is determined by the size and color of its elements. The smaller the elements in a pattern, the smaller your room will seem. Conversely, larger patterns make rooms feel larger and more open. A “large” pattern would have large flowers or leaves that are repeated throughout the design. They can be symmetrical or asymmetrical.
You may want to choose a bolder wall paper if you don’t have much wall space to work with—like in an apartment hallway or small bedroom—because it can help make the most of what little space there is without making it look cluttered.
On the other hand, if you’re trying to create an intimate atmosphere in a large room where one feels overwhelmed by all that empty space, consider using small-scale patterns instead of large ones so as not to overwhelm your senses with too many colors and shapes at once.
Wall paper is one of the easiest ways to transform a room, and making sure it’s the right choice for you can make all the difference. Taking some time to consider what you want from your wall paper will help ensure that you get exactly what you’re looking for.
