Wallpapers are back and with a bang this time. Long gone are the days when wallpapers were only meant for old rustic places.
Today, there are plenty of wallpaper designs available to choose from. From simple pastel shades to accent ideas, you can now DIY your bedroom with fun and colorful wallpaper art.
Worry not, we’re here to help!
Here are some brilliant ideas to decorate your bedroom with peel and stick wallpaper without any professional help.
Choose Your Designs
The first step before you begin with your DIY project is, of course, the selection of your designs.
As already mentioned, there are plenty of wallpaper designs available in the market today. As such, it might get a little challenging to find the right design for your bedroom. But, never mind, you can use design boards or online resources for inspiration.
For example, you might seek a herringbone peel and stick wallpaper or you can go for floral prints. The idea is to find a design that resonates with your personality and your requirements.
Measure And Scale
The next step is to measure your walls where you wish to paste the wallpaper.
For example, if you wish to use it only on the wall behind your bed-back, you might only consider sticking the wallpaper to half the height or length of the wall.
When measuring the wall, you must ensure that the essential elements of your peel and stick wallpapers are within range. In other words, they shouldn’t be cut off from the primary area you wish to decorate.
Set The First Paper
Once you have the measurements with you, it’s time to place the first wallpaper.
Essentially, the first paper that you place will decide the overall pattern that you’re trying to create. Meaning, you need to be extra careful while placing the first paper.
Here’s a tip, use scale, and guides to place your peel and stick wall paper exactly to the point. You can also seek help from your friends or family. Also, you need to make sure that there are no air bubbles when you place the paper on the wall.
Repeat The Designs
Lastly, when the first wallpaper is set to its place, you can begin recreating the same effect over and over, again and again.
All you need to do is align the next paper with the first one and you’re good to go.
When repeating designs, you can either choose the first pattern or you can also mix two or more designs. It depends upon your personal preferences how you wish to create the design. But remember, when you choose to mix two or more patterns, you might need to measure the wall space afresh.
Summing It Up…
Creating an accent wall with peel and stick wallpapers is the easiest that you can get. Plus, you get to choose from hundreds of designs and patterns.
The only thing that you need to take care of when taking up the DIY wallpaper project is to measure your walls properly. Of course, the wallpapers are easy to remove, in case you ruin one or two, but it is also an additional effort that you’ll be making. So, it’s better to double assure your design before beginning.
