What's New in Wall Coverings

Traditional wallpaper has usually required paste and careful hanging to ensure you align your patterns across sheets and end up with a smooth application free of bubbles or wrinkles. While traditional paste wallpaper is still a high-quality choice for your home, there are many other options for DIY types or those taking a bite out of a quick room challenge.

  • Discover the incredible impact of self-adhesive wallpaper. These wall coverings look sophisticated and showcase high-quality design and materials. Enjoy the same range of designs as you would from other wallpapers.
  • Decals have been trending for long enough you can consider them a nouveau interior design classic. These large, self-adhesive pieces span only the dimensions of the design instead of corner-to-corner in a room, like wallpaper.
  • Use wallpaper for an allover pattern. Choose decals when you want to add a splash of design to a painted wall.

Wallpaper Lends Instant Elegance

Expect wallpaper to stay popular thanks to the immediate elegance it adds to your home. It's a classic look with lots of options, so you can always count on it for a change.

  • Cover an entire room with wallpaper for a dramatic impact. This is a gorgeous choice in a bedroom or dining room.
  • Use wallpaper for the top portion of a room over wainscoting or other decorative base or midline trim. This looks amazing in hallways or more formal living rooms.
  • Try wallpapering just an accent wall for a touch of design boldness. This looks great in an open floor plan where one wall becomes a visual stop point or if you have a smaller room where you can't resist a pattern.

Wall Decals Add Pop Art Fun

Wall decals and stickers make interior decor so much fun. These easy, stick-on elements go up in a matter of minutes. Just clean your wall and be ready with a tool to remove any bubbles. In some instances, a credit card is all you need to smooth out your sticker.

Shop for splashy flowers, oversized tree designs or simple patterns that you use over a smaller section. When you're ready to move your decal, that's easy, too.
