The trend of covering your walls in fabric is a huge hit this year. This solution not only allows you to let your imagination run wild when it comes to patterns and color, but it is also very easy to implement – fabric is applied to walls using liquid starch and peeling it off is not complicated either (just spray some water or apply it with a sponge and carefully peel off the fabric). This is an excellent solution if you are renting the place you live in or if you like to change the look of your room often. And remember, for a wow effect, go for a fabric that is rich in color and texture, and of unusual design to make a true statement.

Vinyl wallpaper

Wallpaper in a bathroom? No way! Well, guess what? – Yes way! Yes way, indeed! Vinyl wallpaper is an excellent way to add more pizzazz to your bathroom. It comes in various finishes, silk being the most beautiful one, and in different styles like contemporary, traditional or even abstract. You will have no problem finding the perfect vinyl wallpaper to go with the rest of the design in your bathroom and the best thing is that it is extremely easy to clean. Simply Windex it and dry it off with a cloth, and there you go!

Wood-chip wallpaper

Wood-chip wallpaper got its name from the actual wood chips that are mixed with paper to give it that unique texture. This type of wallpaper is perfect for the bedroom, because it’s usually minimalist in design, but looks very elegant. It will emphasize the beauty of the room even further since it will create a contrast with your door, closets and lovely vertical blinds, which are usually smooth. However, keep in mind that this type of wallpaper is pretty difficult to remove, so make sure you choose wisely and are completely satisfied with the design before you actually apply it.

Textured wallpaper

There are not too many design elements that look as good as an exposed brick accent wall. However, this can cost you some money to make and it’s not very practical to maintain. The good thing is that there are now various textured wallpaper designs, including stone, brick, and wood with which you’ll be able to create that accent wall in any room of your house. These usually look best in kitchens and dining rooms because they give them that old country vibe.

Flock wallpaper

Flock wallpaper is another unusual type of wallpaper that can be an excellent choice if you’re looking to create something that will truly stand out. This wallpaper got its name from the so-called process of “flocking” which basically means applying fibers or powdered wool to an adhesive surface to create a raised pattern. Traditionally, only the rich and wealthy used to be able to afford flock wallpaper, but nowadays, it is much more affordable and available. The patterns are aplenty ranging from traditional ones to very, very contemporary ones. Since so much pattern can sometimes feel a bit overpowering, what you can do is cut and frame pieces of different flock wallpaper and hang them on the wall. This will look amazing in hallways and entryways.

So, what are you waiting for? Browse for some interesting wallpaper that will match your taste and start implementing some 2018 wallpaper trends in your home!
