6 Innovative Wallpaper Decor Ideas For Your Home
Wallpaper looks great on walls but what about trying something new with wallpaper? You can achieve any kind of design or create a perfect scenery using inexpensive wallpapers.
Think about all the different textures, colors, and patterns that wallpaper comes in. Here are some unusual wallpaper decor ideas, including how to use wallpaper on doors and furniture.
Let me show you six innovative decorative wallpaper ideas.
Wallpaper decor ideas
1. Designing wallpaper frames
Use wallpaper in large frames to create accents, accessories, and wallcoverings. To achieve this, buy an empty picture frame and replace the picture inside with wallpaper.
Group them to create repetition and continuity on a wall. Cover the frames with glass to create an elevated look. Wallpaper in frames can be changed since it’s removable.
2. Using wallpaper in trims and molding
After placing your trims on the wall, you can add wallpaper inside the panels. It is a more permanent design compared to framed wallpaper.
3. Use wallpaper on your shelves
Place wallpaper on your inner shelves. This can transform new or old shelves. Wallpaper beautifies the shelves to make them focal points.
This treatment will draw the eye to the shelves to admire the accessories on display. Use this idea for kitchen cabinets and bookshelves.
4. Use wallpaper on doors
I had two old brown doors that looked horrible. I couldn’t use them in the redesign I was working on. But I didn’t want to spend money to replace or repaint them. I opted for an off-white wallpaper. It turned out beautifully!
The doors were so pretty. To achieve this, you may need to take off the door handle while installing the wallpaper. So, measure the door, cut the wallpaper, and place it on the door.
5. Wallpaper beneath staircases
Measure the staircase and place the wallpaper just beneath each stair. The visual impact is amazing and it almost looks like a painting or tilework.
6. Wallpaper furniture pieces
This idea is perfect for refreshing old furniture. Sometimes furniture pieces have sentimental value and you don’t want to give them up but they need some help to look good. It’s also less expensive to wallpaper a piece of furniture than it is to refinish it with paint or stain.
