A stylish wallpaper works wonders for your interior. It can transform an average and boring room into something unique: if you do it the right way. Finding a good wallpaper can be difficult. How do you know what fits the rest? And that it won't be too much? We give you tips to give your space an extra boost. Whether it's the bedroom, the living room, the bathroom, or the hall.
What atmosphere do you want to create?
The first thing to think about: what do you want to achieve with your wallpaper? Do you go for a loud print - or do you prefer to keep it a little more relaxed? A busy print consists of striking colours and a playful pattern. A calm print consists of muted tones and often a smaller, less eye-catching pattern. In your bedroom you probably opt for calmness, where you can make the hall a bit busier. After all, you spend a lot less time there.
When do you respond to the trends?
When choosing a wallpaper, chances are that you prefer something that is timeless. Something that you will still enjoy in a few years. A guideline is: stripes and small natural prints are always good. Pastel shades come back year after year, where bright colours are more sensitive to trends. You really can't go wrong with minimalist shades such as grey, beige, brown and khaki.

Fine vs. coarse prints: what do you choose?
There is also a big difference in appearance between fine and coarse prints. For example, fine prints are a lot easier to combine. They radiate more tranquility. In a smaller space it’s always better to go for a fine print, otherwise it can quickly become too busy. Coarse prints, on the other hand, do well in larger spaces. They make the room intimate and cosy.
You should have come a lot further in your search for the perfect wallpaper. Of course, in addition to the shape and colour, the 'type' of print is also important. Flowers give a completely different atmosphere than a graphic wallpaper. Logical. But what are you going for? Do you want to make your space more sweet, romantic and intimate? Then flowers are the right choice. With botanical, graphic or abstract wallpaper it depends on the type of print and colour, but shape has a lot of influence. Rounder shapes give a softer look than angular shapes.
