If you are looking at freshening up your existing wallpaper, or completely redecorating a room with wallpaper, some considerations include:

  • Décor
  • Budget
  • Room Function


When redecorating a room in your home, you need to consider your furniture. Pick up on the style and find a wallpaper to match. The choice is endless when it comes to patterns and colours and some papers are even environmentally friendly nowadays. Whether your décor be flamboyant and wild or soft and sweet, there is a wallpaper that will match perfectly. Wallpaper is great to add as a feature wall too. You can create amazing effects with just one wall, often less is more.

If you have a very large room to paper, consider doing a feature wall to keep costs down and let the wallpaper become the main feature of the room.

Room Function

If you are redecorating a dining room, playful children’s designs may not be your choice. If you are papering your child’s bedroom, soft, elegant patterns may not be their preference. Wallpaper is fully washable so it is ideal for children’s bedrooms to simply wipe the dirt away, however it is still paper and may not withstand the heavy-duty damage that children can cause in a playroom. High traffic areas that may be subjected to scuffs and knocks to the walls, as well as corners, may not be suitable for paper, however the remaining areas of your home will display your choice of design beautifully.
