7 Different Uses for Wallpaper in the Home

Why we love wallpaper

Offering more drama than paint, wallpaper is a fun way to transform a room and experiment with different styles without breaking the bank. Read on for all the different ways you can use this versatile product around your home.

Feature Wall

Feature walls are one of the most popular uses of wallpaper, other than covering every wall in the room. They’re a great way to draw attention to a particular part of the room and add interest to a space.

Kitchen Splashback

Splashbacks are a great way to experiment with bold, focal prints in a smaller space. Opt for a durable vinyl print or add custom glass over the top of your chosen print to protect it from heat and water damage.

Stairs

They may not be the first place you think to put wallpaper, but it’s a great way to turn a ‘boring’ area of the house into a focal point! Add plain or printed wallpaper to the front of each step (not the part you step on) to protect the stairs from scuff marks and add visual intrigue. You can even get creative with patterns and sequences by alternating the wallpaper on every second step.

Add Texture

A budget-friendly way to add texture to your walls is to add wallpaper. Wallpaper comes in all different prints, so you can get the visual effect of a textured material like brick or wood, just without the price tag. Personalise Furniture

Set yourself apart from the IKEA crowd by cutting up smaller sections of wallpaper and adding it to the interior and exterior of cabinets, drawers and shelves. The non-permanent nature of wallpaper also means that it can be switched out as your personal style changes.

Statement Art

Want the look of statement art without paying a premium price? Simply pick out a funky wallpaper print, paste it onto plain wood backing, frame it and voilà!

Craft

Wallpaper is a peel and stick product, so you can get crafty and spruce up even the smallest objects around your home. Cover up lampshades, chairs, the fridge – pretty much anything you want – with your favourite wallpaper.

Here at ABC Blinds, we have a limited amount of wallpaper available in a variety of colours, styles and patterns. If you’re interested in free wallpaper for your home, give us a call us on 13 13 15 or visit our Wangara Showroom.
