Things to consider when choosing bedroom wallpaper
A great start to the day begins with a good night’s sleep. As such, the bedroom is arguably the most important space in your home. It is your own private sanctuary where you can unwind and recover after a long day –or a late night.
Listen to your intuition
Picking the right bedroom wallpaper is the foundation for creating an inviting and relaxing atmosphere, but with a literal smorgasbord of gorgeous colours, patterns and textures on offer it’s not always so easy to choose. It is, ultimately, a very personal choice, and it’s important to listen to your intuition. With that being said, there are certain widely accepted guidelines that you can follow, in order to succeed with your bedroom. We’ve listed some things to consider below
Muted hues create a relaxing ambiance
The very first impression when entering a room is the colour scheme, which sets your mood –mostly subconsciously. And, by employing a dash of colour theory, you can ensure that a room gives off the desired emotional effect.
Opt for calm, muted colours and patterns in your bedroom, preferably cool blue, green or pastel grey hues. Don’t forget to pay attention to your existing interior and flooring, in order to avoid a disharmonious overall impression. A safe bet, then, is to stick to an analogous scheme using colours belonging to the same family, or go for a monochromatic palette for a truly cohesive look.
Go for all-over pattern to breathe life into a room
A common misconception is that an all-over pattern looks messy and makes a room feel smaller, when it’s quite the opposite. The right choice can, in fact, make a room feel bigger, more alive and somehow instantly welcoming. An accent wall, on the other hand, pops more and can convey the impression of a smaller room. (Which, granted, works beautifully when you are working with bigger spaces.)
Bring nature into your bedroom
The ubiquitous botanical trend is still going strong and keeps reinventing itself. From lush, tropical leaves to sprawling flowers –everything from dainty watercolours to bold and vibrant florals. The latter undoubtedly provides a room with a certain warmth and charm. Besides, there’s nothing more romantic than flower wallpaper.
Create depth through optical illusion
There’s also a demand for huge panoramic 3D prints, or ‘photo wallpaper’, as they are very versatile. Incredibly impactful, by virtue of their photorealistic motifs, these wallpapers immediately ‘pull’ you in and create depth in any room. And with them comes the perfect opportunity to transform your bedroom (quite literally) into your favourite setting, whatever it might be. Choose from any of our carefully selected prints, or upload your own.
Look for inspiration and test it at home
Check Instagram or Pinterest for design inspiration and curate a mood board with the colours, shades and patterns you like. Get inspired by your favourite piece of furniture or decorative item and let it dictate the style in your bedroom—it doesn’t get more personal than that.
