Choosing the right wallpaper can be tricky. It’s not something that you can change now and then and it’s also not something that lasts forever. There are quite a few criteria that you need to keep in mind. And here are a few of them.

Choose the right pattern:

Wallpapers that express a certain pattern elicit interest. That is when there is gradation or continuous line movement, the eye is set to move along with it. But for this, you’d have to choose designs that either stand out or don’t clash with the rest of the patterns. You don’t want to crowd the room with too many patterns this would make the room look monotonous.

Wallpaper with a more textured and patterned look can help hide glitches that may exist. They look best in a casual room like the bedroom or an outdoor setting.

Types of wallpapers:

Vinyl wallpaper is easy to clean and hang as well as easily available. If you’re looking for kitchen wallpaper then this is the one for you.  The Vinyl-coated wallpaper can be sponged off with soapy water. It had a paper backing and a vinyl coating as well.

Solid vinyl wallpaper, on the other hand, is completely waterproof and ideal for kitchens and bathrooms.

Know what you are going to be using the room for 

Be sure about the kind of function of the room, as we all know that color reflects light. Therefore depending on this one of the things that you would probably have to keep in mind is the amount of exposure you’d want in every room. So depending on this you’d have to choose bright colors for the bigger rooms. That is depending on the size the type and color of the wallpaper might vary. Also if it’s the kitchen you’d probably want a wallpaper that is durable, not delicate or expensive. In the living room, you might want the opposite.

Have an idea about how you want the room to look

If you have a small room breadth wise and you want to make it look bigger you’d want to go with a wallpaper with horizontal wallpaper. You’d like the room to look bigger length wise then you’d have to get vertical lined wallpaper.
