Creative Ways To Use Wallpaper

Time : 2023-05-17 Hits : 8

“Wallpaper is used on the walls” is what comes to mind when you think about wallpaper products. Whether used as a single feature wall or throughout the entire space on all walls, wallpaper is used to add a touch of style and personality to the space. It can dramatically transform the space through its innovative design and high-end look. However, what if we told you that you can use wallpaper off the wall? In this article, we’ll be taking a look at creative ways to use wallpaper that doesn’t just involve pasting them on your walls!


Using Wallpaper on Doors and Other Panels


One unique way to use wallpaper other than pasting it on the wall is to cover the interior surface of the door with the product. This creates an interesting, localized look within the space, emphasizing the main entrance/exit of the home or apartment. Since the surface area of the door is much smaller than a wall, definitely opt for a bolder print or color scheme in order to create that “wow” factor to draw people’s attention. This can also be a great way to use your favorite print that would be too busy or “loud” if used throughout the entire space. The image above is an example of a contemporary floral wallpaper pattern that features a minimalist color palette but imagery that is very detailed.


Another area that can be wallpapered includes closet doors and panels, as seen in the image above. Again, the concept is the same. Instead of wallpapering the entire room or even a single feature wall, wallpaper is applied to functional surfaces that you interact with on a daily basis. It’s a way to dress up a part of your home that would otherwise go unnoticed.


Use wallpaper to update plain furniture

For readers who consider themselves DIY-ers, this next suggestion will be right up your alley! You can use wallpaper to update plain furniture, giving it a total makeover. 

Using wallpaper off the wall and in unexpected places is a cost-effective way to add interesting visual elements to the interior space without having to commit to wallpapering the entire wall. Of course, choosing vibrant colors and interesting designs to make an impact is a huge part of why homeowners should consider using wallpaper elsewhere. It can be a good way to make old furniture “new” again – it’s the concept of upcycling but with a wallpaper twist! Today’s wallpaper is so much more versatile and functional than wallpaper of the past, and with “paste the wall” technology, installation is so easy, even those new to DIY can take part!
