Wallpaper Trends 2020
Like a lot of people, the new year brings a desire for a fresh new look to our homes, but before picking up the paintbrush, it’s time you had another look at the wallpaper trends for the coming 12 months. Find contemporary designer wallpaper that will be the envy of friends and family.
It’s likely that once the Christmas tree and all the decorations have been put away again for another year, the next job is having a big clear out, preparing yourself for the end of winter, and the coming of spring. It’s not as easy to clear out the walls in your home, but adding wallpaper to give a wall the finish it deserves will make such a difference.
Wellness is a word we have all heard, and one way of incorporating that in to your home is to continue with the trend for botanical themed decor. Floral, green coloured, and earthy toned wallpapers bring the outside in, and create a sense of calm and tranquility. Adding a feature wall of botanical themed wallpaper, and a variety of plants as decor brings nature to you.
Another continuing trend is to add wallpaper to the bathroom, as well as to the ceiling. The way in which we use wallpaper is changing and becoming much more versatile. We are now using wallpaper more in the way we would have used paint, and refusing to be held back by limitations.
Geometric prints are bringing instant art deco glamour to bedroom, living rooms, and hallways. It’s becoming very popular with renters too, with many styles now coming in using ‘paste the wall’ technology, requiring no pasting, easier hanging, and simple to peel off when you fancy a change or you are moving out.
There’s many advantages to using wallpaper. It can last upwards of 15 years, making it very cost effective, and properly hung wallpaper can out-last paint. It can add warmth and depth, as well as hiding any imperfections in the wall.
Of course the patterns and designs available are not achievable with paint, which also lacks the ability to add texture to a wall. There are a dazzling array of wallpapers available with gorgeous effects such as pearl and glitter, raised inks, suede, gels, beads, and embossed silk texture.
Modern wallpapers are much more durable than paint. It can withstand wear and tear, and it’s easy to clean with a sponge, and some can withstand some scrubbing too. Paint can chip, and finding the exact matching shade of paint for touching up can be tricky!
