Are you looking for some really fun and stylish ways to give your apartment more personality and dimension? Wallpaper could be the solution you didn’t even know you were looking for! With so many incredible options available for patterns and colors, you can do just about anything you want. And, now that removable wallpaper has become so popular, you don’t have to worry about ruining a wall or having to repaint when you move out. Instead, you can just pull your wallpaper down and move out.
Of course, we’re not just talking about wallpapering every room in your apartment. We’re talking about some really fun and innovative ideas to completely transform your space. Check out our favorite wallpaper decorating tips.
Frame Your Favorite Scrap
You can create a modern and stylish look for your apartment by grabbing some simple frames and some of your favorite scraps of wallpaper. A framed wallpaper sample is instant artwork that will look beautiful hung anywhere in your apartment.
The Illusion of a Headboard
Want to make your bedroom feel more luxurious? Instead of buying an expensive headboard for your bed, you can cover the wall behind the head of your bed with your favorite removable wallpaper. There are even wall decals that are made to look like headboards, but you don’t have to go with a pre-made version – you can choose your favorite pattern and give your room a whole new look. If you want, you can even extend it across the entire wall instead of just behind your bed.
Liven Up Your Backsplash
How’s the backsplash in your kitchen? If it’s just boring tile or if there’s nothing there at all, you can add a more fun and vibrant one with some wallpaper. You could even create the illusion of a more expensive tile backsplash by cutting out rectangles of complementary patterns and placing them over your existing tiles.
Create Custom Furniture
We’ve seen a lot of tips about painting your furniture, but that can be messy and time-consuming. Instead of painting, why not cover your dresser drawers in a fun wallpaper pattern? If you go with removable wallpaper, you can easily do this again and again whenever you want to change things up.
Jazzy Door Frames
A lot of today’s apartments and houses have more open floor plans with framed doorways and entrances between rooms. You can create a fun border between two rooms by covering the inside of the doorframe with a cool patterned wallpaper.
Embellish a Lamp
Want to add a subtle hint of chic design? Cut a section of wallpaper and glue it to the inside of a lampshade. It’s a really small embellishment, but it can make all the difference. You can also embellish other fixtures and accessories, as well. Put down some fun wallpaper on the insides of shelves, drawers, and cabinets. Or brighten up serving trays by cutting and gluing wallpaper to them.
Add an Accent Wall
Have a wallpaper pattern that you love but that you don’t quite want to see all over your living room? Choose a single wall and apply it there. This accent wall can become your living room’s gallery, where you hang all of your prints and artwork. Or it could just stand alone as a fun way to add dimension to the room.
These are just a few of the wonderful ways you can use wallpaper to decorate your apartment. Try a few of them out and see how much fun you can have making your space your own.
