#1 Use Striped Wallpaper To Add Width & Height

Even if it’s used on one wall only, long stripes have the power to make a room feel taller or wider. Vertical stripes add height while horizontal stripes add depth. The best thing about striped wallpaper is that it’s so versatile! They come in different styles, colors, and patterns. They can be bold and striking or subtle and minimalistic. There is striped wallpaper for every style and taste!

…But It Doesn’t Have To Be Literal Stripes.

Any pattern that creates lines (vertical or horizontal?) for the eyes to follow will do the trick. The wallpaper below features beautiful tree trunks that create the same elongation effect. I compiled some unique striped wallpaper designs here!

How To Use Wallpaper In A Small Bedroom?

I’ve always liked the idea of using wallpaper on one or two walls. Especially if it’s a bold pattern. Personally, I find four walls covered in busy patterns to be quite overwhelming. But this is a personal choice. It’s your home and you can do with it what you like! If you’re going to cover your entire room with wallpaper, be sure to choose a pattern you really, really love. Because you’ll be looking at it every day.

So where to place wallpaper in a small bedroom?

  • On the wall behind your bed
  • Inside your closet
  • On the ceiling
  • On the wall behind your desk or office space. This creates a beautiful Zoning Effect.
