Authentic Looking Wallpaper

If, like me, you have fallen in love with the unique ambience and grungy, yet sophisticated style of industrial interiors and décor, then you’re going to love this one. Central to the industrial look is the pop of ‘unfinished looks’ and raw materials such as brick, stone, wood and concrete. If (again, like me) budget doesn’t allow for the real deal then décor wallpaper is the solution we have both been looking for. 

Brick and Stone Wallpaper

Brick wallpaper, like normal brick, comes in a variety of different colours and finishes. Choose from mid-century-modern dark grey styles to traditional red face brick looks and taupe colours. With stone-looking finishes the possibilities are also endless; veneer stone, marble, pebbles, slate, sandstone and limestone finishes can be designed to look one hundred percent like the real deal, but for a fraction of the price.

Wooden Wallpaper

As with the brick and stone wallpaper, wooden wallpaper looks like the real thing and creates beautiful texture for visually appealing results. Looking for that rustic look? A selection of faux weathered looks are all waiting for you to pick them; including, charred wood finishes, distressed wood finishes, pickled wood finishes as well as grey and white washes that can help to add a bit of dimension and colour to the look and feel.

Metallic Marvels

Wallpaper doesn’t leave metallic behind. There are hundreds of different faux finishes that have the metallic sheen perfected. For an additional ‘wow’ factor, there are wallpapers that are designed to look as though there has been extensive welding involved, some even look as if they have real bolts in them. Flints of copper added to a marbled look are also an exquisite option.

Administering wallpaper yourself comes with a series of flops that generally aren’t worth the risks, unless you’ve already mastered the art. Opting for professional expertise ensures seamless results and allows for more experimental design with custom prints. Contact Unique Impressions or visit their website for more information.

The Wonders of Wallpaper

Wallpapers first emerged in the 15th century and whilst many designs are outdated, the concept remains versatile and fresh with trendy and innovative designs emerging in 2019. We’re not surprised that décor divas and home owners alike are going crazy over the possibilities.
Live a Little
Dull walls are a thing of the past and a little too two-dimensional for our liking. Décor wallpaper is an exciting way of livening up a space or really bringing a theme to life that completely absorbs and encompasses the essence of your design style. With colours, textures and space to have fun with, transforming the look of a kitchen, bathroom, lounge or bedroom is easy and rewarding.

Patterns and Textures
If you’re an interior designer or home décor enthusiast, chances are the space you’re wanting to incorporate wallpaper into is themed (mid-century modern, industrial, Scandinavian, bohemian etc.). There are an infinite amount of patterns and textures perfect for creating a dimensional look and feel whilst effortlessly capturing your theme and bringing out the best of its associated design elements.

For Tenants
Gone are the days where renting meant you couldn’t really make a space your own. If you’re reluctant to paint, then we’re certain that removable wallpaper just became your new best friend. There are brands that do exactly what they are supposed to – look gorgeous and peel off seamlessly from the corners (without sticky residue or chunks of the wall underneath being ripped off).
Canvas Prints and Personalized Designs
If personalised design is more your style, then the art of wallpapering caters for that too. Professional teams will be happy to craft and innovate tailored designs for your décor, including the use of your own photographs for digitally printed wallpaper that can only be found in your home. Contact Unique Impressions or visit their website if you’re looking to make a unique impression of your own.

Wallpaper Selections Made Easy

While it is true that the type of wallpaper you choose to use when adorning the walls of your home is entirely dependent on your sense of style, there are a few simple guides that you can follow to ensure that your choice fits the décor of your home more snuggly.

The types décor wallpaper you use should actually depend on the texture of your walls, your furniture, the art hanging in your home and which room you are applying the wallpaper to. So let’s have a look at some of the best principles for selecting wallpaper to keep in mind when you are doing so.

Some Rooms are Formal, Others Are Not

Certain types of wallpaper are better suited to certain rooms than others. Dining rooms and entrances, for instance, can be considered formal rooms. As such, they are far better suited to minimalistic patterns and simple, elegant designs with crisp colours.

Bold patterns and bright designs, on the other hand, tend to make these rooms look a little like the interior of a casino. They are far better suited to informal rooms such as bedrooms and TV areas.

Wallpaper Should Compliment Your Interior

When deciding on a wallpaper for your home, it is best to first consider the other objects in your interior. Consider the upholstery on your couches, the types of curtains you are hanging and even the type of art hanging on your walls.

Your choice of wallpaper should never detract attention away from your interior design, but should rather complement and enhance it.

The More Intricate the Pattern, The More Difficult it is to Install

Remember that when installing décor wallpaper, that you will need to ensure that patterns line up correctly so that your interior has a seamless design.

Selecting a wallpaper with a particularly intricate pattern might seem like a good idea at the time, but it can make things very difficult for you when trying to line patterns up while applying the wallpaper.

Making mistakes in this regard will likely lead to an eyesore that will be cumbersome to rectify.
