Whether you look leans modern or traditional, there is a wallpaper to suit your style. There is no need to choose something that doesn’t feel you.

2. Don’t imitate
A lot of people imitate what’s over Instagram or Pinterest by choosing a wallpaper that has been used many times over. This is a mistake. You need to choose something different and be your own stylist. If you are not sure where to begin, you probably need inspiration. You never know, sometimes inspiration can come from your closet. Look at what your wardrobe tells you.
3. Get a sample
Getting a paper sample is absolutely necessary. Tape it to your wall and live with it for a few days. Having a wallpaper in your space allows you to match it to other details and fabrics in the room. What do you think? Is it the right choice for you?
4. Go through all options
From materials such as grass cloth, paper, cork, sisal, and Japanese silk to papers that imitate wood, marble, stone, etc. the options available go far beyond simple, traditional prints. If you want to add coziness and warmth to your space, a textured wallpaper could be perfect for you.
5. Choose the right space to prevent pattern fatigue
Stairs, hallways, powder rooms, etc. are rooms where you spend the least amount of time meaning they are your best bets. Studies, bedrooms, formal dining rooms, guest rooms are also proper contenders for paper, adding style without having to put in decorating effort.
6. Don’t get stuck choosing a color or pattern
People sometimes get stuck over which design to go with. Yes, it can be tough to make quick decisions. But sometimes, the best choices are the ones we are scared to do, so don’t think too much and just pick the one you like the most.
7. The view from other rooms
Choosing the right wall to cover is very important, especially when you are doing just one wall. Take a few steps back and take a look in your room from the space over. Now that you have a sample, you can experiment with putting it on different walls. Is the wallpaper a nice surprise or is it too painful to watch?

If your room has a dividing line, for example, chair rails, it is best to use two different wallpapers. By doing so, you will create a feeling of height. Ask someone to recommend you two different and yet compatible wallpapers.
