How to use wallpaper to great effect

We shouldn’t be afraid of colour in our homes. A painted wall is fine but a wallpapered wall is a beautiful thing. Long gone are the days of woodchip paper which could hide a multitude of sins and then be impossible to remove if you fancy a change. The modern day wallpaper can give a real feeling of indulgence, luxury and humour to a room.

A rather difficult sloping ceiling in an attic bedroom or bathroom can be papered in with the other walls to give a greater feeling of space that way the illusion is created of the walls be pushed out.
