Love wallpaper may seem like an antiquated concept. Today, most people only use it to spruce up their computer desktop using Pinterest and other free HD wallpaper platforms. We’re assuming you want to bring wallpaper into your life in a much bigger way, to spruce up a love nest or make your apartment a place that exudes affection.
The right design tips can contain your ambition for all things pink into a decorating sense that will wow your visitors and make you comfortable at the same time. If you’ve entered a new relationship or are considering moving in with your significant other, you may need to make design changes to turn rooms into a home. Here are a few tips on how to use wallpaper to bring love into your space.
Wallpaper is back! Top interior designers everywhere are saying it (just read this piece in Vogue). Particularly with so much time at home, people want to make their home spaces more livable and lovely. Wallpaper represents one of the cheaper ways to totally revamp a room with your personal style. But to do so successfully, you need to know how wallpaper changes the look of a room and how you can make it work for you.
Room Size Equals Print Size
The first thing to remember when choosing a wallpaper print is to scale the designs on the paper according to the size of your room. The rule of thumb that you need to commit to your brain is this: a bigger room means bigger prints. And vice versa.
So if you put a small-patterned wallpaper in a large room, what’ll happen? In bigger rooms, the walls are further away from you and your visitors when they walk in or sit. This means the small patterns are likely too far away to make out clearly. This makes your room visually busy and annoying to look at. Large decorative patterns in a large room can bring a sense of stylish calm in comparison!
The Light Factor
Wallpaper doesn’t decorate your room only one time of the day. The design style you’re going for, whether calming, loving, zany, stylish, or anything between, has to hold up all day. This means that when the morning light peeks in, your wallpaper patterns have to hold up just as they do during midday and when night sets in.
The lights you have physically in your room matter as well. They can drastically alter how your paper looks. Be sure to take advantage of samples when testing your potential patterns at all times of the day. The paper you choose, in order to be a loving choice, needs to look lovely 24 hours a day.
Have No Fear
Love wallpaper can make your desktop beautiful, but the right design can even make your home easier, calmer, and more inviting to live in. The worst thing about choosing a wallpaper design is pulling a trigger on your choice! It’s easy to choose 5 that you like and difficult to commit to one that will be the face of your room for the foreseeable future.
However, you’re committing to one of the cheaper ways to overhaul the look of your room. So long as you test your choices in the room, you have nothing to fear! If you’re expanding your life to include true love, redecoration should be an easy, and loving, change to make.
