Introducing wallpaper into your space can feel overwhelming, and like somewhat of a commitment, which is why incorporating this expressive and fun element is perfect for smaller spaces. Consider what is on display in the inspiration photos above. Small spaces like bathrooms, mudrooms, and in this case, creating a display on an accent wall or even a kitchen island are perfect for beginning the wallpaper process! Wallpaper creates the perfect opportunity to get creative!

Because these are smaller spaces, going with a dramatic or bold pattern, texture, or color is ideal, and will feel balanced due to less wall space. In addition, wallpaper offers a personalized and exciting element in a space that does not necessarily have room for larger wall art pieces or other elements that are customized to your personal style!

Feeling inspired by these wallpaper looks?! Below, we have linked some of our favorite products for you to personalize your space! These images are for your viewing pleasure, but also include links for purchasing these products for your very own design! {Affiliate Links Included!}



Are you having trouble committing to installing wallpaper? If you're not sold on the idea yet, starting with just one accent wall in a smaller space is the perfect way to test the water. Playing with the idea of having your specific wallpaper allows you to really get a feel for the specific design, pattern or texture in your space.
