Make a statement with dark wallpaper!

Add a dark wallpaper into an area of the house that you would tend to just walk by. Why? Because adding such statement pieces in a smaller area, turns the room from drab and boring to a truly magnificent space. By using darker wallpaper it adds a luxury element to the room because the dark colours create a moody cosy atmosphere.

Picking a smaller area such as a washroom or powder room allows your inner interior design to come out. Because it is a space that is otherwise forgotten about it allows you to be more creative with it as no one has an expectation on what the interiors should look like.

If you do not want your room to become too dark you can add some contrast to the room by incorporating lighter tones throughout the flooring, finishing and fixtures. Let your inner interior designer daredevil come out and go for a darker bolder wallpaper. It will work in your favour.

How to create a Scandinavian style in your room without a fuss

Want to master that Scandinavia style in your living space? Add a wallpaper that creates the look of a textured material on your walls to truly bring out the unique look of a Scandinavian styled room.

Adding wallpaper into your room really shows that the room has been well thought out. Choosing a wallpaper that looks like a martial over installing the actual material itself is a massive time and money saver. Our wallpaper creates the look of a material, such as brick and wooden panels without the actual texture. As our wallpapers are smooth it means there will be no dust or dirt build up as there would be with real bricks or panels. This was it stays more hygienic and is less of a cleaning hassle. 

To nail the Scandinavian style let the wallpaper be the main design element. You can then add soft neutrals and different textures that will compliment the wallpaper such as warm wood grain. You could even add a little dark grey to add a moody element into the overall design.

Wallpaper in bath rooms

The two things that can lift the price of a house are kitchens and bathrooms. The priority of a bathroom is to be clean and functional. However, if this is your only focus then you miss out on a lot of potential to make a design impact that will pull up the value of the house.   Three steps to getting wallpaper right in a bathroom.

  1. If you have a separate toilet, chose to wallpaper this over the bathroom. This is because there is no humidity. Not to mention, it is will be a smaller space, therefore you would be able to have a bigger impact for less of the price.
  2. If you have a joint bathroom and toilet try to put the wallpaper in an area that is not in a direct steam zone. So avoid bath and shower areas and go for a splash back above the sink or on the toilet wall. We do recommend getting a waterproofing coat for any part of the bathroom.
  3. If you are on a tighter budget but have fallen in love with wallpaper you can always get a smaller piece as we do custom sizes. Then pick a frame and turn your wallpaper into beautiful artwork.  

If you are worried about the area you are putting the wallpaper in, please send us an email. We will be able to quote you with the width and size you need along with waterproofing. We are more than happy to guide you in where is a safe and stylish spot to place your wallpaper.

Both places where you need to relax.  It also allows you to bring a bit of nature into your own home. Here are our top 3 tips for nailing this stylish tend. 

1. keep it simple with colours. We don’t want to be overstimulated with lots of colours when we are trying to relax. If you just use mutable tones of green in wallpaper or plants then this will easily create the tropical look you are wanting. If you are going to introduce any other colours make sure they are soft and are in the same tones as the green.

2. If you feel like you are missing something it could be Bamboo? Adding a small touch of bamboo whether it be a washing basket or a side table helps create the look of a tropical retreat. Bamboo is just as important as the lush green leaves are to creating the tropical look.

You want to make sure that you pick a plant for your environment. Chose your plant not only on its looks but on how much sunlight it will get and how much maintenance you want to put in. If you are really forgetful you can alway try fake plants! Pick a few and stick with them throughout your house. You could even pick out similar looking plants that are in your tropical themed wallpaper to match.
