When deciding how to adorn your home with 3D wallpaper, you should always consider the room you’re working with. Since there are patterns for nearly everything under the sun (from fish to florals to simple stripes), it’s important to make sure that what you choose to accent your walls with matches the rest of the room.
Using 3D Wallpaper
3D wallpaper can be utilized in a few different ways within your home. You could choose to put it on one wall for an accent (as opposed to simply painting the wall a different color). Not only will this be a unique touch, it will add a bit of pop to the area you choose to put it in! More glamorous patterns (like black and gold designs) are a good choice for this technique. If you want to go all out, you can also choose to plaster 3D wallpaper on all four walls of a room. This works best with more minimalistic patterns, so as not to make the room seem too busy. For example, if you have a modern style, a good option would be to choose something like horizontal stripes. It’s contemporary, yet not too overpowering, and will give your room a nice vibe.
Have a chair rail? Don’t fret! There are plenty of ways you can use 3D wallpaper in that space, too, other than just plastering it on the wall above the rail. One of the fun things about this is that the rail gives you a top and bottom distinction. You can try a paintable beadboard wallpaper paired with an intricate wallpaper above the rail, or switch it up and plaster a pattern beneath while painting a corresponding color on the wall above!
