Wallpaper, Paint and Other Interior Design Wall Trends You Need to Know About

Walls are the largest visual space in your room don't ignore them.
Few things in home decor can transform the look of your room more than changing the wall coverings. Your walls are the largest visual space in your room, and it is important that you don’t ignore them. By simply changing the paint color or putting up some accent wallpaper, your entire room can be transformed. Here are some of the most popular wall covering options and why they might be perfect for you.

Interior design experts all over the country use wall paint. It is versatile, easy, quick, and cost effective. It comes in countless colors and shades and can be combined in many different ways to create rooms filled with drama, serenity, or joy. Paint is a popular home decor option by the do-it-yourselfer because it doesn’t take too much skill to apply it. All it takes is the right tools and the patience to apply it correctly. Additionally, if you get tired of your paint color, all you have to do is repaint your walls a different color.

The biggest downside to paint is that if you want a patterned wall in your home decor, doing so with paint requires a lot of time and skill. It is also the most easily damaged wall covering option. A simple scratch or bump can cause you to have to repaint that area.

Wallpaper has come a long way since your grandma was a kid. It is now considered a luxury home decor item and can really create a statement in your room. Of course, like all things, quality matters, so make sure you are getting wallpaper that will last.

The downside to wallpaper is that if you are opting for a patterned design, it can be very difficult to match the seams. Even plain wallpaper is known to cause some stress during the application process. For this reason, many people choose to get wallpaper professionally installed. You should also avoid wallpaper anywhere that gets a lot of moisture, like the bathroom or kitchen, since the adhesive will dissipate over time in a humid environment.

Using fabric as a wall covering is a relatively new interior design trend. However, that doesn’t mean it isn’t a great choice. Just like wallpaper, fabric is available in countless options, both plain and patterned, making creativity you’re only deterrent in your design. Fabric is also a great way to add texture and warmth to your home decor. It is very easy to install (you can use staples, tacks, or even starch), and can be removed just as painlessly.

While wood paneling is definitely out, PVC and hardboard paneling is very much in. It is popular in home decor for many reasons. First off, you can get paneling to replicate some of the most popular design aesthetics, such as a stone or brick. Additionally, paneling is a great way to cover up any imperfections or visible wiring that the room may have. From a practicality standpoint, paneling is also a great way to add both acoustic and thermal insulation and it is very easy to keep clean.

As you can see, every wall covering option has its pros and cons. Only you can decide what will work best in your home. Don’t be afraid to be creative and combine several different wall covering options for a look that is truly inspired and truly you.
