Contemporary wallpapered room

What are the walls in your home like? If they’re relatively plain, or could do with an uplift, then using wallpaper or a wallcover is the ideal solution. Here’s why.

Wallpaper has made a huge come-back in popularity over the last decade and there’s now a brilliant selection of designs, collections and ranges you can choose from.

You could go bold and add bright colours or patterns, go glam by decorating with metallic or shimmer wallpaper, go classic by using traditional designs, be subtle by using neutral wallcoverings, or add texture by using textural wallpaper.

Whatever your décor preference, budget or the room you’d like to paper, has plenty of stunning options to create the effect you’d like.
