Decorate bare walls with framed wallpaper panels

Wallpaper can be expensive, especially imported and designer brands. But here's how you can use wallpaper in small quantities to fill framed panels.





Buying a house is one of the most important investments anyone can make in their lives. Before they can afford one, they need to maintain a good credit score and save money for years. The more expensive their dream home is, the more effort it’ll require for them to afford it. This is one of the reasons why people spend most of their resources to beautify their homes the moment they have one.

If you’re thinking of doing the same in your own home, consider using framed wallpaper panels. This is a great way of turning your home into a new space without breaking the bank. This decorating hack can work well in every home, regardless of your floor layout and the theme you want to achieve.

Wallpaper is an easy and reasonably affordable way to add a decorative touch to rooms without going to the expense and hassle of wallpapering an entire wall. Using wallpapers is also a great solution for people who want to change the ambiance of their rooms without spending a lot of effort during the process.

After mounting wallpaper onto panels, or a wall, this can be framed using pine moulding and trim to suit your personal style. You will find a wide selection of moulding and trim at your local Builders, or opt for crown moulding if you want to add even more detail.




Depending on your preferences, you can choose the design of moulding on your own or ask professionals, such as Advance Remodeling, to help you out. Contrary to popular belief, the latter option is actually cost-effective as you’ll have peace of mind that the outcome will be aesthetically pleasing.

Floor-to-ceiling framed wallpaper panels can be used to add contrast and pattern in a room that lacks architectural detail. In the bedroom below, wallpapered panels are given a white trim that complements the decor accessories and white furniture. The nailhead pattern on the wallpaper ties in with the geometric patterned fabric on the bed and creates a perfect backdrop to highlight the bed. 




If you’re planning to use patterned wallpapers, make sure to use colors or designs that fit the existing theme of the room. If your bedroom is filled with pink decors, for example, look for wallpapers that come with the same or similar hues. This decorating trick will ensure that there’s coherence in the room even if you’re adding some patterns in it.


You can use framed wallpaper panels to introduce or tie together colours in a room. If you are designing the wallpaper panels as a starting point, add accessories that take their cues from patterns or colours in the wallpaper.




Colourful framed panels highlight the staircase in this modern home. The contemporary wallpaper design reflects the pattern in the wrought iron staircase. Placing framed panels in your staircase is a great way to add color to the space, especially if your home is painted with the same hues all over.








Even plain wallpaper can make a big difference when placed against white walls. In the entrance hall below, grey wallpaper with a linen effects ups the interest to create a more formal setting that complements the decor accessories and furniture. This trick works best if your panels have the same color as the furniture in the room.




Locally, there are several suppliers of quality wallpaper products, and your local Builders have a small range of designs. Choose from grass cloth or wallpapers that offer chinoiserie-style reproductions to dress up and transform a plain room into a more formal space, or to add colour, pattern or texture.





When opting for wallpaper panels you can measure and mark and apply the wallpaper directly onto the wall, if you walls are smooth, or you can mount onto hardboard or MDF panels should your walls be bumpy or textured.



Use wallpaper panels to accentuate architectural details in a room, or to introduce unique patterns that add impact to a room design.




Chinoiserie wallpaper is expensive and few can afford to splurge on the quantity required to cover an entire room. That's where framed panels offer the homeowner the opportunity to incorporate chinoiserie wallpaper at a much more affordable cost.
