Just as with the fashion industry, trends come and go in the area of home décor. One form of decoration that is earning a comeback in 2015 is wallpaper. Once scorned for its tacky patterns and unattractive colors, today’s wallpaper is available in a much broader range of color and design options.
Even better, the quality of wallpaper has increased significantly, making it a much better option for including in luxury homes than it was even ten years ago. If you want to get in on this latest trend, here are a few things to keep in mind when wallpapering your luxury home.
Choose the Right Amount of Coverage
When wallpaper was at its height of popularity, it was not uncommon to cover every wall in a room from top to bottom with wallpaper. In many houses, wallpaper covered the walls of every room. In today’s luxury homes, the trend is to wallpaper just one wall in a room in order to create a dramatic effect. Wallpapering just one room creates visual interest while also making it relatively easy to make a change if you decide you want to go for another look in the near future.
Have Fun with Texture
Many of today’s wallpaper options offer a variety of different textured patterns from which you can choose. Adding textured wallpaper is a great way to add another dimension to your space. In addition, unlike textured paints, textured wallpaper is much easier to apply and to remove. It also results in a more even coating of texturing than what is commonly achieved with paint.
Textured wallpaper also offers an advantage over textured paint in that it can be used to recreate the look of other design elements. For example, textured wallpaper can be made to look like wood, riveted metal plates, brick walls and a variety of other options.
Go Wild with Colors
Deeper hues and vibrant colors are trending right now, so look for wallpaper that is available in deeper, darker colors. Put together bold color patterns will help create more visual interest in your space. Consider using the wallpaper to add color to your walls and even to your ceilings and doors. You can even use wallpaper to cover pieces of wood or other items in order to create wall hangings and other decorations for your space.
Experiment with Patterns
While solid wallpaper colors certainly have their place, the wide range of patterns available on wallpaper offers a virtually endless range of design possibilities. Floral patterns are experiencing a return in popularity in 2015, but you don’t have to limit your choices to flowers. Geometric designs are also experiencing a comeback after receiving a great deal of exposure at London Design Week 2014. Simple multi-layer designs featuring squares and triangles in a multi-color approach are particularly popular.
