Choosing Modern Wallpaper For Your Home
Buying a wall treatment is a big decision, so you should carefully examine your options and start by looking at the rooms you want to curate with contemporary wallpaper. Imagine the different styles and how they relate to the central theme in that space. That way, whatever option you choose will likely blend in seamlessly or create intentional contrast for visual impact.
For your living spaces, it may be best to layer in a wall treatment as an accent wall in an open-concept or traditional family room. In a small-space lounge, you can also use an abstract wallpaper as a foundation for your entire look. If you decide to add a wallcovering for your whole living space, choose a tonal option, like this Zen Wallpaper. Its rippling, wave-like design offers a sense of calm in your most high-traffic area.
In a kitchen or dining room, look to introduce plenty of colors. Rich, saturated tones invigorate a space you already spend a lot of time gathering in with your family. Look to select a modern kitchen wallpaper like this rose tan-hued grasscloth style.
In a bedroom, ask yourself questions with the end result in mind. Are you trying to create a meditative space or a lively one? Do you want the flexibility of updating their space to grow with them in your child's room? If so, think about opting for a peel-and-stick wallpaper with modern patterns. It would be easy to install and remove, letting you swap in another style in a few years.
For modern bathroom wallpaper designs, go with linear motifs that also offer a touch of color. Something like the Artemis Wallpaper features a broken stripe pattern that injects a ton of personality into what is traditionally a functional space. However you choose, start by recognizing and determining which room you will use this abstract or modern geometric wallpaper.
Modern and Abstract Wallpaper Themes To Try
Once you've done your homework and defined a vision, it's time to start shopping styles. The world of abstract wall murals has expanded and brought many beautiful and exciting designs. You can choose from a solid, tactile option to a mid-century modern wallpaper. Also, if you like to update your space regularly, consider adding a modern removable wallpaper. Easy installation and mess- and residue-free removal let you play around with how and where you style your wallcovering.
Modern geometric wallpaper adds so much character to your walls. Take, for instance, this Malou Wallpaper by Malene Barnett. The raised, tactile pattern provides a rich contrast to its tonal chalky white palette. Similar designs are ideal for a living room, study, or bathroom.
Modern Farmhouse Wallpaper
These styles provide muted tones and abstract reinterpretations of traditional patterns to your home. This Moroccan Wallpaper Mural by Sarah Sherman Samuel takes a classic lattice motif and black-and-white palette to create an intricate yet laid-back design. Style it as a modern kitchen wallpaper or in a serene, meditative bedroom.
Tropical Flowers Wallpaper
Large-scale botanicals offer room-transforming style to designate an accent wall in an open-concept floor plan or create a bold, trend-forward bedroom. This peel-and-stick wallpaper, with its modern tones, produces a tropical paradise-like feel in whichever space you style it.
Featuring detailed linework and elevated color palettes, our line of stylish modern wallpapers allows you to fill your space. These designs can help add a new dimension to your home and make your walls tell a powerful story that captures the eye. You can use it as a daring accent, completely reimagining an entire room and bringing it to life with vibrant shades and an eye-catching motif, or opt for a softer, modern farmhouse wallpaper. From kitchen to bedroom to modern bathroom wallpaper designs, you can complement and play off the furniture and textiles in your space. Be bold and inventive by using intricate linework, prints, and texture to express your style.
