There are certain rooms in a given home that are more likely than others to contain wallpaper, and the living room is near the top of this list in most cases.

We’ve assisted countless clients with their living room wallpaper needs, from conceptualizing the space to choosing the ideal wallpaper material and adhesive format given your situation. This two-part blog series will go over some general themes on choosing wallpaper for a living room, then look at some of your style options depending on the sort of ambiance you’re looking for in this part of the home.

Coordination and Matching

Like with many other home areas, but perhaps even more so in the case of the living room, wallpaper is ideally used to coordinate with other prominent elements in a given room or area. This doesn’t necessarily mean that wallpaper has to match these items directly – rather, it should complement them in some way, whether it’s a similar tone or a significant contrast.

If you’ve already chosen your seating arrangement for the room, for instance, and you’re matching the color of all the sofas or seats placed there, why not match these with the wallpaper? This will signal a design concept that was well-planned and considered multiple textured layers, an area that holds value in both general aesthetics and interior property appeal.

Scale Up

Generally speaking, a living room wallpaper tip that’s also commonly useful in other home areas: Start small, then scale your way up. Beginning with a small swath of a given pattern is a great way to get a visual idea of whether it works in the space – from here, you can scale it up and eventually cover the entire surface, but you’ll also be in good shape if you decide that isn’t the design you want.

Subtle Choices

Especially if you’re new to wallpaper designs, or if you just want to keep things relatively straightforward, the way to go is subtle tones. We’re talking about relatively neutral colors plus various tones and geometrics, as a way of providing a light complement to the other elements of the room without taking too much of the attention away from them.
