Non-Committal Ways to Use Wallpaper as an Interior Design Element

Apartment dweller? On a budget? or are you a "Commitment-Phob" when it comes to decorating your home? You can still take advantage of the gorgeous world of wall coverings without making a huge commitment. Here's how:


Install wallpaper on the back of built-in or freestanding bookcases for a subtle punch of pattern

Wall Art

Combine wallpaper scraps and some inexpensive frames to create a stunning and budget-friendly gallery of color and pattern in your space

Drawer Liner

Here's a very subtle way to add color/pattern to your room...simply use wallpaper remnants to line your dresser and nightstand drawers




If inside the drawer is too subtle, how about cutting a piece to fit the top of your console or end table? Place it under a piece of cut-to-order glass

Table Runner

Pull a long roll of wallpaper remnant out when you are entertaining to add some party flair in the form of a unique table runner


Door Panels

Door Panels

Liven up your room by creating colorful door panels with wallpaper insets
