Wallpaper your entire room

Wallpaper was all the rage in the early 20th century when would-be home-decorators would paper their houses top to bottom. So why not go classic and take some inspiration from its early origins and wallpaper your entire room?

Not only will it have a dramatic effect but, by blurring the lines around the edge of the room, it can actually make a small space appear bigger and inject some fun into downstairs bathrooms. Quirky designs make ideal wallpapers for nurseries or children's bedrooms, and today, with greater durability, you can even wallpaper your kitchen.

Wallpaper a feature wall

If you're not ready to commit to an entire room, why not create a feature wall? A popular look when it comes to bedroom wallpaper, it's a great way to add pattern and style without worrying about overwhelming the space. We like to think of our wallpaper as wall art. From floral wallpaper to geometric wallpapers, think about selecting your wallpaper like you would a piece of art. It's all about freedom of expression and what your wallpaper says about you.
