However, it can become quite difficult to find the perfect wallpaper for your walls. But do not fear! There are some tips below to help you choose the right wallpaper for your room.

Wallpapers come in all different shapes, sizes, and colors. This means that there’s wallpaper for every room. Below are some examples of rooms that would be suitable for particular wallpapers:

– For a child’s room, work with their personality. Try not to buy into trends or film characters that date. Instead choose inspiring, thought provoking designs that foster great values and opinions. If possible, avoid gender defining or stereotyping and enable the child to love all kinds of design.

– If you’re decorating the living room with wallpapers, then perhaps something like natural scenery would work well. Wallpaper with a natural design or pattern, such as flowers or vines might be fitting for your living room.

– If you have a large wall that needs covering, something geometric would work well. Swirls and circles might look good on a big area of the wall.

– For the kitchen, maybe consider something more neutral – something that won’t be too distracting and overpower the other decoration in the kitchen. A simple wallpaper with thin, vertical stripes might look nice on a kitchen wall. Or go with latest trends and embrace a terrazzo style wallpaper.

BEST Wallpaper Suppliers – How to Find Them

There are different companies out there that sell wallpaper, each with its unique designs. For example, some companies specialize in wallpapers with animals such as kittens and puppies.

Other companies only sell nature scenery wallpaper. Some companies might even specialize in children’s wallpapers, while other companies might cater to adults.  

So when choosing a wallpaper to cover your walls, be sure to double-check with the place where you’re buying the product from.

Some companies such as Ever Wallpaper might have a greater variety of wallpapers than other companies, so be sure to choose the one that has the most suitable wallpaper for your room.

BEST Wallpaper Patterns

When choosing wallpaper for your room, you might not want to go for the same pattern that every other room has. There are all sorts of different patterns out there, so there’s something for everyone. Patterns can be anything from flowers to swirls or even geometric shapes.  

Be creative! Try to be unique by choosing a pattern that nobody else would have. Wallpapers come with all different patterns, from plain to very intricate and busy. To choose the right wallpaper for your room, you might want to consider the pattern. Now there’s no need to be picky when choosing.

Knowing the dimensions of your walls

The next step is to measure your wall. Knowing the dimensions of your walls will help you choose the right measurements for your wallpaper.

If you’re not sure how to take measurements, here’s a nifty little tool called a measuring tape. A measuring tape is used to measure objects or spaces (in centimeters). To use it, simply pull the tape out and let it hang between your fingers.

Then, press the end of the tape against a wall to measure its height. Make a note of that number. Then, stretch the tape from the top of the wall to where you want your wallpaper to stop (keeping in mind how high you’ll need to start/stop). Write that number down.

Finally, flip the tape over and press the end of it against your starting number. Then, from that point, measure how far you need to go until the wall ends. Make a note of that final number.

Type of paper

The next factor to consider is what type of paper you want your wallpaper to be.

Ideally, the wallpaper will be resistant to stains and water. Wallpaper that resists water can protect your walls from dampness and liquids for up to 5 years!

That’s a long time without worrying about ruining your beautiful wallpaper.


Finally, think about your budget. Some of the best wallpaper can be quite pricey – especially the good stuff. When you’re decorating it’s important to consider what you can afford and what you want to spend on your wallpaper.

Fortunately, nowadays there are all sorts of deals and discounts available on the internet. This means that with a bit of research and negotiation, you can find the best wallpaper to suit your budget.

So there you have it! Follow these tips and you’re sure to find the BEST wallpaper for your walls.
