4. Versatile in Application and Use

You are not just limited to the walls. Wallpaper can be a unique feature on the ceiling creating the illusion of a lower ceiling to create a more intimate space. Placing wallpaper in unexpected places can add a surprising element to your space. Try using left over wallpaper from a larger project to paper the back of bookshelves, furniture, chairs, kitchen cupboards with glass doors, or behind a glass splash back to create a small feature and liven up a neutral space.
