Wallpaper for Every Room: A Room-by-Room Guide

Wallpaper is making a comeback in a big way, and for good reason! It adds personality, pattern, and a touch of history to any space. But with so many options available, choosing the right wallpaper for each room in your house can feel daunting.  Here at The Wallpaper Company, we're here to help!

We've put together a room-by-room guide to inspire you and give you tips for using wallpaper to create a stunning and functional space in every corner of your home:

Living Room:

  • Living large:  The living room is the heart of the home, so don't be afraid to go bold! Choose a statement wallpaper with a dramatic pattern or a rich color to create a conversation-starting focal point.

  • Cozy vibes: If you crave a more intimate feel, consider a textured wallpaper or a softer pattern in calming colors like light blue or beige.


  • W wipeable wonders:  The kitchen is a high-traffic area, so choose a wallpaper that's easy to clean and maintain. Vinyl wallpapers are a great option for their durability and moisture resistance.

  • Fun and functional:  Why not have some fun in the kitchen?  A wallpaper with a food theme, botanical prints, or even a colorful geometric pattern can add personality and inspire creativity.


  • Spa-like serenity: Transform your bathroom into a tranquil retreat with a spa-inspired wallpaper. Think calming colors like light green or blue, or natural stone patterns that create a sense of peace.

  • Waterproof wonders:  Similar to kitchens, bathrooms require moisture-resistant wallpaper. Vinyl or wipeable wallpapers are ideal choices.


  • Sleep sanctuary:  Your bedroom should be a haven of relaxation. Opt for soothing colors and patterns that promote restful sleep. Soft florals, calming blues, or nature-inspired murals are all excellent choices.

  • Accentuate a wall:  Bedrooms tend to be smaller spaces.  Consider using wallpaper on an accent wall behind the bed to create a focal point without overwhelming the room.

Dining Room:

  • Set the mood:  Wallpaper can set the perfect mood for memorable meals in your dining room.  Elegant damask patterns or rich jewel tones create a formal atmosphere, while light and airy florals promote a more casual feel.

  • Think about the furniture: Consider the style of your dining furniture when choosing wallpaper.  Traditional furniture pairs well with damask patterns, while modern furniture complements geometric or minimalist designs.

Bonus Room: Home Office

  • Boost productivity:  Create an inspiring and focused workspace with wallpaper that promotes concentration. Opt for calming colors and clean patterns that won't be visually distracting.

  • Think outside the box:  While neutral tones are popular for home offices, don't be afraid to add a pop of color or pattern with wallpaper. A vibrant accent wall or a geometric design can spark creativity and energy.

Remember: When choosing wallpaper, consider the overall feeling you want to create in each space.  Don't be afraid to experiment with different patterns, textures, and colors to find what works best for you and your home. With a little planning and inspiration, you can use wallpaper to transform every room into a stylish and inviting space.
