Find an Exciting Wallpaper
The beauty of wallpaper is you don’t have to use it in the entire room. Just one wall of interesting wallpaper can brighten up a room.

Give Your Walls a Treatment
Nothing can spice up a room like a faux plaster, marble, or thatching treatment. It’s subtle, but will change the entire room.
Don't Overload Your Rooms on Your Walls
One of the biggest mistakes you can make is trying to cram too much furniture or art into one space. It’ll just look cluttered and will make it impossible for any one feature to stand out.
Light Them Up
Nothing’s going to glow if you aren’t getting enough natural or artificial light into the room.
Don't be Afraid of Bold Colours
