Varieties of wallpaper
Wallpapers in the interior are an exciting concept. Advancements in modern printing have resulted in the production of wallpapers that are of better quality and appearance. Wallpapers have a strong influence on the interior. Fixing wallpaper in a dreary interior will immediately transform it into a vibrant and delightful space without making other adjustments.
Before choosing wallpaper, you need to understand that wallpapers come in many varieties. In terms of texture, wallpapers are distinguished as;
Matte wallpaper is usually a simple nonwoven or vinyl paper wallpaper with a good print quality. It is best to glue them in living rooms, but not in the kitchen and not in the corridor, as they cannot be washed. It is also advisable to use this wallpaper if you plan to remodel the room soon, since the wallpaper is not durable.
On the other hand, glossy, or laminated wallpaper, is a practical and long-lasting choice, which perfectly serve you for as long as15 years. However, this wallpaper should be cleaned cautiously, preferably with a wet rag.
Structural wallpaper is the most expensive and exquisite wallpaper. The texture of structural wallpapers resembles canvas, linen cloth, coarse sand or decorative plaster painting.
They, of course, require extreme care, so it’s best to use them in rooms with less activity, such as the bedroom or living room.
Paper wallpapers are the cheapest option, making them a great choice for those who want to decorate on a budget. Furthermore, these wallpapers are available in multiple assortments of drawings and often have excellent print quality, making them the most popular.
Wallpapers for the Bedroom
Sometimes it is difficult to choose how to best decorate the walls in the bedroom. Most homeowners often aim for non-standard decor, so the room stands out and has a compelling vibe. Home design experts advise that for the bedroom, you choose wallpapers with drawings that bear elements of nature (flowers, trees) or photos with perspective, such as panoramic wallpapers. These varieties are especially suitable for small bedrooms. This is because if you position such wallpaper opposite the entrance, the room will appear larger.
Designers, however, warn against using a lot of bright and contrasting colors, since they eliminate the feeling of calm. In short, wallpapers with natural compositions are always the best alternative for bedrooms as they offer a neutral, soothing and cozy atmosphere.

Of all the designs, the modern style of design works best with wallpaper. Modern interiors look awesome with abstract and geometric drawings, especially with a black and white portrait or landscape.
And what if you like classics? A strict and official classical style bedroom will look “gentler” and “softer” if decorated with wallpaper with a picture of flowers. For this plan, you should not use wallpapers with graphics or urban landscapes.
Photo Wallpapers in the Living Room Interior
Since the living room is the main room of the house, it needs impressive décor that will captivate the guests. To achieve this effect using wallpaper, you can select wallpaper with non-trivial views of the night metropolis or any of the world’s sights. Looking at such wallpaper, it’s easy to imagine your house as the continuation of these streets. Such photos look particularly great in a spacious room and in a small living room .
Panoramic wallpaper with a view of the opening spaces is quite realistic and appealing. Unlike their predecessors, which went out of fashion a couple of decades ago, modern samples demonstrate striking clarity and are fascinating.
Those who choose a more relaxed, sophisticated style of interior can go with background wallpaper with motives of nature.
If the room lacks adequate light, the problem can be solved by wallpaper with a sunny summer or winter landscape.
When you use a drawing on the whole wall, it should not be blocked by any other elements of the interior. You should therefore remove any obstructing objects. However, if this is not possible, it is better to choose a small format for the wallpaper.
Bright wallpapers often dominate the room, so it is advisable to choose them only if the entire living room is minimalist or hi-tech.
For a living room in the classical style, it is advisable to choose background wallpaper that covers only a small part of the wall (panel). As in the bedroom, it is better to adhere to wallpaper with large or small flowers or other plant patterns.
Photo wallpapers are certainly one of the most effective decorations of the interior. With their help, the smallest and most ordinary room is transformed into a magical and enchanting space. If you want to divert attention from unattractive elements such as furniture, just pick up a beautiful wallpaper, and the whole room will become stylish.

How to Decorate the corridor Walls with Wallpaper
The hallway begins the acquaintance with the house. Despite this fact, very few people attach importance to its design and decor. It is not always clear what kind of wallpaper to paste, or what color to use, so to achieve a beautiful, unpretentious and practical hallway. One way is by trimming all the walls with decorative plaster, and cover one with wallpaper.
Usually, difficulties arise with narrow corridors. In this case, the solution remains panoramic wallpaper with a perspective. However, remember to keep the walls as light as possible. In the corridor completely white or beige walls catch dirt easily, so it is better to make the lower part darker and the upper one lighter. This solution will in itself expand the space visually. If the wallpaper is illuminated, the corridor will appear even more spacious. The best lighting technique is to show the sconce on the wall or to equip the spotlights on the ceiling.
When choosing a landscape for the corridor, avoid the images that portray gloomy elements such as the night or a dark forest.
In summary, photo wallpapers can decorate all the rooms in the house. They help express the individuality and impeccable taste of the owners.
