Unique Wallpaper Ideas for Your Home

Wallpaper: Not Just for Your Grandma’s Attic 

Wallpaper initially rose in popularity in the 60s and 70s, again in the late 90s, and as 2022 rolls in, wallpaper is once again making a comeback. From peel-and-stick decals to larger prints, wallpaper is a simple way to add personality to a room. If you’d rather refrain from plastering paper up throughout an entire room, here are a few unique wallpaper ideas for your home.

Use it to line drawers. 

Using wallpaper inside of your drawers is not only a way to add pops of color to your kitchen, bathroom, or bedroom, but it’s also a fun hidden accent for you personally. Maybe it won’t get a great deal of attention from your guests, but lining your drawers with a vibrant pattern is an easy way to make your home feel luxurious. 

Frame wallpaper and use it as statement art. 

Maybe you can’t commit to covering an entire wall, and that is 100 percent okay. Grab a square of your favorite paper and put it in a fun frame.

This is where those decals come in. Peel and stick decals are an inexpensive way to create a headboard effect in your bedroom that in return creates a focal point. Check these boho decals out on Etsy. 

Create an accent ceiling

Remember when interior designer Dennese Guadeloupe Rojas forecasted accent ceilings as a trend for 2022?You can make one yourself using wallpaper, so you can ensure that things are always looking up. When Jane Dagmi and Frank Leyon wanted to add a design detail to their guest bedroom, they chose Missoni wallpaper. Frank and Jane also used an experienced installer to bring depth, color and texture to the  ceiling. Who wouldn’t want to lay in bed and just linger for a while?  

Add wallpaper to a textured wall

From 1960s-esque popcorn-style walls to orange peel-style textures, you can mix things up by applying peel-and-stick paper to textured walls in your home to add another dimension. Try this peel-and-stick paper from Tempaper. 

P.S. Tempaper also has a print-your-own wallpaper option!
