Wallpaper Ideas For Bedrooms
Sequence of papering
There are no set rules about where to start papering; the most important thing is for you to work in a logical sequence around the room. If the room has an obvious focal point, however a chimney breast in the middle of one wall, for instance centre the pattern of your first piece of wallpaper on it, and then work outwards from there around the room, in opposite directions, until the two ends meet at the other side, or at a convenient junction such as a door.
If there is no obvious focal point on which to centre your work, start papering to the right of the main window and work your way in a clockwise motion around the room to the door, before going back to the first drop and working anti-clockwise round to the door. Remember, though, not to use the window frame as a reference for your vertical.
For those who haven’t the time or the confidence to experiment with paint effects, there are now a number of wallpapers on the market that simulate different paint finishes. The subtle stripes of this wallpaper resemble the soft finish achieved by shading, and give a warm, even look to the walls in this smart bedroom.
