Wallpaper can rejuvenate your room, becoming the element that ties it all together. Paint and wainscoting are certainly one way to go, but if you check out new wallpaper designs, you will see that they aren’t the tired & dated looks of years gone by. Give yourself time selecting the right print, & wallpaper can do more for your room than a coat of paint. Below are a few tips for what to look for wallpaper.

Many options come in metallic sheens & every design & color combo you can think of.
