5 Uses For Wallpaper In Your Home Other Than Wallpapering in Denver Metro, CO

In the home decorating and renovating world, one thing that comes up quite often is the use of wallpaper — and the various applications that wallpaper has in updating the look of one of your rooms.

However, what people don’t realize is that the opportunities you have with your wallpaper actually extend far beyond the reach of your walls — it can be used for several things in and around your home.

With that being the case, let us look at and consider five uses for wallpaper in your home other than wallpapering in Denver Metro, CO.

1. Lampshades

One creative use for your wallpaper that doesn’t involve wallpapering the wall is creating lampshades for one of your rooms — or maybe multiple rooms!

The really nice thing about this is that you will have lamps that possibly match your wallpaper, assuming that you use the same wallpaper for the lamps you did for the walls.

On the other hand, you may want to consider having lampshades that somehow contrast the wallpaper — and so it could be a better idea to use an entirely different sort of wallpaper for the creation of your lampshades.

2. A New Backsplash For Your Kitchen

When you think about a backsplash in the kitchen, what are you thinking about — do tiles come to mind, or something else?

The nice thing about backsplashes is that they do not have to be made of tile — and a good use for wallpaper that might seem like wallpapering (but in reality is not) is to use it as a backsplash.

There are many wallpapers out there that are just as resistant to getting dirty and easy enough to clean — wipe it clean with a moist cloth or paper towel.

3. Wall Art — But Not In The Form Of Wallpapered Wall

Next, if you happen to have some extra bits of wallpaper and aren’t sure what to do with them, have you considered using them as wall art?

You may be thinking that wallpaper put up on the wall already is wall art — but this is not exactly what we are referring to here.

Instead, here you would cut the wallpaper into precise shapes — specifically, the kind of shapes that would fit into frames that you already have.

You can then fit those pieces of wallpaper into the frames and hang them on the wall as art.

That way, your wallpaper can live on in the form of art.

4. Nicer Looking Stairs

Another thing you can do with your wallpaper is to really upgrade your stairs — why have plain stairs that have the same color over and over again as you go up against them when you can decorate them with your wallpaper.

What’s really interesting about using wallpaper to decorate your stairs is that depending on the kind of wallpaper you use, you add various colors. Depending on the pattern, each step can end up looking just a little bit different than the previous one.

Of course, it is important to be careful when you are doing this as you don’t want people getting dizzy on their climb up the stairs.

5. Improve The Typical Flat Packed Furniture

Consider the kind of furniture you get packed in boxes and how typically dull it looks as is — now think about how much better it will look with the addition of wallpaper.

The nice thing about doing it this way is that you can regularly change up your furniture’s look with just this kind of technique — when you next want to change the look, you can apply a new wallpaper.
