Black and White Wallpaper Steals the Scene

Black and White Wallpaper

As trends go, black and white wallpaper took us by surprise here at Wallpaper Warehouse.

Chic and modern, this color palette is exceptionally versatile. From the bathroom to the kitchen and everywhere in between, this craze shows every indication of being around for a while.

Black and White Wallpaper for Bathrooms

The bathroom is the perfect spot to try out black and white wallpaper.

Some classic choices are damask and medallion designs. To be truly on-trend, take a look at some of the many polka dot patterns (like this white-on-black version). Geometrics are big, especially pinstripe and plaid patterns, and who doesn’t love a classic chevron wallpaper?

The hottest pattern for designers today is a contemporary black and white checkered wallpaper.

Use this design on the upper half of the wall and add white wainscot below. Use a solid or color-block shower curtain, towels and rug. Now, throw in a single pop of color — hot pink and sunflower yellow are both ideal — in a flower arrangement next to the sink.

Wallpaper Murals Go Big in B & W

Following the urban art trend, black and white photographic murals are a creative way to energize a space.

If your style is loft living, you can rock this trend loud and proud. For the suburban dweller, try a scaled-down version in your home office, man cave or game room.

Tweens and teens are jumping on the wallpaper mural trend as well. The outdoors is the dominant theme, and your kids can choose murals that range from skateboarders to the Eifel Tower to stylized serenity branches.

Using This Style in Your Home or Business

Customers often admit to being just a tiny bit scared of wallpaper, especially if it’s their first project. They worry that their wallcovering of choice will be overwhelming once it’s installed.

For that reason, we always suggest starting small.

If papering an entire room scares you, do an accent wall. You’ll quickly get a feel for the paper in your space. And, if you’re like most people, you’ll soon be back for your next fix.

Adopt the black and white trend at home by papering only the wall behind the bed, the kitchen stove wall or the wall where your fireplace is located. If you have a second story, paper the dominant stairwell wall. And, of course, the powder room or guest bath is always a fun place to start.

In the office, try adding wallcoverings to the wall behind your reception desk, in the conference room or in the visitors’ washroom. Don’t be afraid to have fun and be playful. Your customers will appreciate your sense of style!

At Wallpaper Warehouse, we have thousands of designer-inspired wallcoverings, all at discounted prices. Our online wallpaper store is easy to use too. With just a few clicks, your fresh and fun black and white wallpaper will be on its way to you.
