Decorating your living room with textured wallpaper
For most people, the living room is one of the most important places in the home, and if you live with your family, it is a common area where everybody gathers at the end of the day to talk, watch TV or do homework. On the other hand, If you live by yourself, it’s a sort of oasis where you can relax after a busy day. More often than not the living room is also the guest area, where you receive friends and have little meetings with outside people.
Being usually one of the first places you see when you get in the house, the living room offers a direction of your home style. So it is essential that the décor has personality and we want to help you with that and show you 7 ways to enhance your living room with textured wallpaper and give it the visual punch it deserves.
1 – Make a feature wall
A feature wall provides an excellent opportunity for you to explore and be bold with new colors and textures. This is a highlight of your décor, and it can be very helpful on setting the vibe for the rest of your home and a resource you can use to define space in open concept homes and with the right wallpaper, it will be the first spot the eyes are drawn too.
Just be careful not to overload – when you create a wall like this in an already overcrowded room, it may give a sense of chaos. So just go for the classic “less is more” way of thinking.
2 – Decorate the ceiling
The ceiling is often forgotten by us with the dull old white, but working with a bold textured wallpaper can bring some life to your ceiling. Besides, you can go all the way and explore vibrant colors, and unusual patterns, your living room will get a unique and super contemporary look.
3 – Update your furniture
The beauty of using wallpaper for your décor is that you don’t really have to use it only on the wall and you can get creative and unite different textures to renew old blank furniture.
Here are some examples:
- Get that old black bookcase and revival it with some bold textured wallpaper.
- Fix a cracked lamp shade with some new and fresh wallpaper and give it a whole new purpose.
- Give a makeover to your old woodwork with vibrant colored wallpaper and make it look like a million bucks.
