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.

5 Ways To Save Money On Wallpapering in Denver Metro, CO

5 Ways To Save Money On Wallpapering in Denver Metro, CO

5 Ways To Save Money On Wallpapering in Denver Metro, CO

Not every interior room of your home needs to be painted — indeed, for some, the idea of having wallpaper instead of paint on the walls is something to consider, and maybe even a bit of a chance to remember one’s youth and living in a home with more wallpaper clad walls than painted walls.

It can sometimes be a bit pricey to apply wallpaper, depending on how you go about it, but if you do it right, you can get the work done even on a somewhat smaller budget.

With that being the case, here are five ways to save money on wallpapering in Denver Metro, CO.

1. Check The Clearance Section

Though one would not traditionally think of the clearance section when one is in the market for buying a thing like wallpaper, many stores sell wallpaper (both in the online sense and the brick and mortar kind) offer clearance wallpaper.

It is worth noting that you aren’t going to have the same selection of wallpaper you can choose when you shop the clearance section. Still, it may well be worth it as it could boost your creativity — sometimes having fewer choices in a creative endeavor can make it a better project overall as we use the limitations to create something new.

2. Online Auction Sites

Another great place that you can find wallpaper at a discount is an online auction site, where you can often find people selling things at deep discounts because they want to get rid of it or, in some cases, do not know its value.

Once again, you really have to have an open mind when it comes to what kind of wallpaper design you will end up with, but that can be part of the fun of wallpapering one of the rooms of your home.

3. Partial Wallpaper

Another option to reduce the cost of wallpapering one of the rooms in your home is only partially to wallpaper the room and to paint the parts of the wall that are not covered with wallpaper.

Though this most likely sounds like a proposition that will cost you more, depending on how you plan your painting and wallpaper work, you can make it work for less money.

4. Samples!

There’s one thing that just about every wallpaper selling organization has: the samples of the product they are selling.

Another thing that these very same organizations do is eventually stop selling the wallpapers… but they don’t always get rid of the samples that they had to go with the wallpaper they had used to help decide if they wanted to buy the wallpaper or not.

If you feel particularly inspired, you can go to one or more stores that sell wallpaper and ask for samples that they no longer have in stock and use them together.

There is quite a bit of creativity involved in doing such a thing as you are basically taking a gamble at finding wallpaper samples that are remotely coordinated, but the price is just right — free!

5. Make An Accent Wall Instead

Though it can be quite exciting to add wallpaper to the entire room that you are trying to update, there is something to be said for just taking one wall that you want to stand out and wallpaper just as an accent wall.

The good thing about doing this is that in doing so, you will use significantly less wallpaper (though there is a certain minimum amount that you will have to spend in the form of buying one roll) and spend a bit less money in wallpapering the interior of your home.

5 Popular Wallpaper Designs For 2020 in Denver Metro, CO

5 Popular Wallpaper Designs For 2020 in Denver Metro, CO

5 Popular Wallpaper Designs For 2020 in Denver Metro, CO

While painting the interior walls of your home is a good way to improve the look of a room, another good choice that people can make is to put wallpaper on the walls.

There are many advantages that wallpaper has over a painted wall, one of which is that you have a lot of exciting designs that you don’t really get to see as often when you just are painting the walls.

Every year there are certain designs that are more popular than others, and it bears looking at what wallpaper designs are more popular in any given year.

With that being the case, here are five popular wallpaper designs for 2020 in Denver Metro, CO.

1. Tropical And Nature Wallpapers

The first kind of wallpaper that seems to be really popular in 2020 is the kind of wallpaper that could best be described as being tropical and nature-themed.

When you are thinking about tropical and nature-themed wallpaper, try to think about the idea of the different sorts of things that you might expect to see in nature, such as trees, different plants, as well as animals.

Then in terms of tropical-themed wallpaper, you need to go no further than your average beach with its beautiful views of the water and the various wild things that can be found swimming in it.

You don’t necessarily have to have a huge array of dolphins coming across your living room wall, but it certainly might make for a nicer wall, in any case.

2. 3-D Wallpaper

3-D wallpaper is interesting in that you know that there are really only two dimensions to the image that you are seeing, yet something about it makes it appear as though it has depth.

One particularly popular style of 3-D wallpaper resembles bricks — not just the kind of bricks that lay flat, but that really pop out of the wall and make you think that you could actually touch the wall and feel in between the bricks.

There are also more geometrically shaped 3-D wallpapers that offer different angles and still have the same feel and depth to them.

3. Retro Art Deco Art Wallpaper

Art deco wallpaper will offer you retro looks to your wallpaper and a throwback style that you don’t often see in the more contemporary styled wallpapers.

They will show you the kinds of styles that were more popular in the mid 20th century, the kinds of things that you will see in books about the 1950s and even the late 1940s.

It comes in such colors as silver and gold and yellow and has numerous kinds of designs that you can see associated with it.

4. Tapestry

Tapestry kind of wallpaper can be one of the most simple to explain and yet at the same time, one of the more difficult ones.

When you see a tapestry wallpaper, you will often be looking at a sort of landscape, with numerous things going on at the same time.

It can have a number of colors, including blues, greens, and muted colors that blend together quite beautifully.

5. Panorama

A panorama wallpaper quite simply put quite unlike most of the wallpapers you will find anywhere else.

For the most part, when you think of wallpaper, you have a sort of pattern that repeats again and again.

A panorama wallpaper, on the other hand, is a fairly large image that is spread out over the course of the wallpaper and does not tend to repeat at all — you can start looking at the wallpaper on one side of the room and work your way to the other and never see a repeat.
