6 Surprising Places to Use Wallpaper in Your Home

Wallpaper has never truly gone out of style, but the way we use it is constantly changing. These days, it’s not just your walls that could benefit from the patterns and textures that only wallpaper has to offer. Whether you’ve always wanted to try wallpaper, or you’re hesitant about the practicalities, you’ll find that it could be an easy way to add some personality to your home. The wide variety of options adds lots of unexpected character to your home, especially when you use it somewhere unexpected!

#1: Use Wallpaper Inside Your Cabinets

Wallpaper is a wonderful way to incorporate color, texture, and patterns into your home. It can make an otherwise boring wall pop, and it can even do the same for your cabinetry! It creates a beautiful backdrop for your dishes and things, and it looks especially nice if you have glass cabinets or floating cabinets. You could also add it to the back of your closet or the back of a bookshelf for a surprise burst of color.

#2: Apply Wallpaper on the Ceiling

Applying wallpaper to your ceiling can add color, depth, and interest to a room. This is especially true if you have high ceilings that can take advantage of perspective for even more visual interest. Since Wallpaper comes in hundreds of patterns and styles, you’ll be able to find something that fits perfectly. Some modern wallpaper is designed to look like wood, bricks, or stones. It can also look like tin tiles or solid gold. You can even get patterns like stripes, polka dots, floral, or just solid colors. 

#3: Hang Wallpaper as a Piece of Art

If you have a small piece of leftover wallpaper from somewhere else or you like the look of a flower or a sea turtle on a piece of wallpaper, you could hang it on the wall as a picture frame. You can even re-create Renaissance-style art on your ceiling, taking advantage of the wide array of beautiful art featured on wallpaper.

#4: Insert Wallpaper in Your Drawers

If you have liners beneath the drawers in your kitchen, you know they don’t have a lot of personality. You can change that by replacing them with wallpaper! Find a pattern you love that you think goes well with the rest of the kitchen, and it will be a spot of cheer every time you open the drawer.

#5: Use Wallpaper as a Backsplash

Add wallpaper as a backsplash behind your kitchen sink and stove ( as long as it’s washable ). This can be a unique and inexpensive way to upgrade your kitchen.

#6: Apply Wallpaper to Your Furniture

If you have some old furniture that needs to be painted, use wallpaper instead. You can do the whole thing for a fun accent piece, or you could just cover the drawers for a unique and personalized look. Not only can this give them a new breath of life, but it will protect them from further damage, too.
