Wallpapers can change your interior beyond recognition! And this applies not only to "freshly bought" rolls. The small pieces that you have left over from previous repairs will help to upgrade not only the walls, but also the cabinets, dressers, lamps, and even the stairs. And it will always look attractive, original and interesting.
1. The accent of one wall
It happens that after repairing, not just trimming remains, but also a pair of rolls. This amount is usually not enough to paste over the entire room, but it is quite enough for one wall.
This technique is very popular, allowing you to refresh the interior, spending a minimum of time and money. In addition, you can zone the space or focus on a specific part of the room.
2Patchwork of wallpaper on the walls
If you find several different types of wallpaper, then combining them and making the same squares, you can paste over with them not only one wall, but the whole room (of course, if this amount is enough).
The patchwork technique is very relevant today, even if it concerns wallpaper. But do not forget about color combinations, choose no more than three basic shades.
- As for color combinations, the most versatile is white color, which is in harmony with all shades. It looks best with red, black, brown, purple, peach and blue.
Wall-paper of beige shades will be well combined with gray, violet, terracotta, marsh, olive, chocolate and light brown colors.
Gray looks good in combination with blue, pink, green and yellow. But black is good with cream, beige and chocolate shades, slightly diluted with bright red or yellow.
3. False panels
Another way to make the interior more interesting is the false panels created with the help of moldings and wallpaper. It is suitable in the event that the interior is designed in a classic style, where false panels in this design are relevant.
They give the interior a certain solemnity, so for this type of decor wallpaper from the nursery with the image of cartoon characters is hardly suitable. Best of all will look neutral patterns and shades, floral motifs.
4. Exterior decor of furniture
Bored with old furniture? Wardrobe and chest of drawers become shabby? Fix it easily with wallpaper. If you do not plan to continue to varnish the product, then fit and paper, and vinyl wallpaper. Otherwise, vinyl wallpaper will have to be abandoned, as they can dissolve under the action of varnish. And it is worth remembering that when varnishing the color of the wallpaper will change and become darker.
- Before applying the varnish on the wallpaper, primed them. This can be done with wallpaper glue or PVA diluted with water. Apply a primer in a thin layer after the wallpaper has dried. As soon as the primer dries, proceed to varnishing.
For these purposes, suitable as a normal parquet, and water-based varnish, which today the masters prefer.
To make sure that nothing happens to the wallpaper after coating with varnish, try the process on a small piece first, and then, after making sure that everything is normal, proceed with the rest of the wallpaper.
5. Interior decoration of furniture
No less interesting are the shelves, open pedestals and cupboards, pasted inside with wallpaper. This technique enlivens the space, makes it more homely and cozy. Especially advantageous will look such furniture, if the color of the wallpaper will overlap with a touch of decorative pillows or curtains. But it should be borne in mind that decorating such a plan requires accuracy.
6. Wallpaper shades

In smaller bedrooms, it is increasingly possible to find beds without backs, as their brothers with luxurious headboards are often bulky and are designed for large rooms. In an effort to highlight the comfort zone, many still make the headboard with their own hands.In the course are wooden boards, fabric, painting walls and photo frames. And we propose to use the remnants of wallpaper, which are also excellent for the role of the headboard. In this case, it is more practical to use vinyl and washable wallpaper.
Many do not dare to experiment with the interior of the house and spend their design experiments in the country. There is a place to roam - even a ladder can become an object for testing.
