Bare walls are, well, boring. While you can get crafty with stripes, gradients, and spotted designs, wallpaper is the best way to infuse personality and pattern into your space. There are so many wallpaper ideas to choose from, catering to specific rooms, color choices, and aesthetics. Take a look at these wallpapered rooms — kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, dining rooms, living rooms, you name it — for inspiration, no matter if your home has more of a modern, rustic, or classic feel. It’s up to you how bold and unexpected you want to go: Wallpapers range from rainbow-inspired florals to neutral geometrics to simple stripes, and everything in between.
Since the process of installing wallpaper isn’t nearly as easy as painting a few walls, make sure you hang a wallpaper sample before committing to an entire accent wall or room. If you still find it hard to settle on a particular pattern or style, try one of the many peel-and-stick wallpaper options. That way, you can remove it with ease if you happen to change your mind in the future. But remember, the joy of wallpapered walls (and ceilings!) is that it takes you — and your house — out of your comfort zone.
