Take your space from bland to wow in an instant simply by adding Wallpaper. Transforming your space using bold colors, textures or patterns make a statement in your home or office quickly and for a cost that won’t break the bank.
With so many options available, choosing the perfect paper can be a bit arduous, but by following a few basic tips we’ve provided and using Jigsaw Design Group calculation tool, your search can be simplified and even fun.
For starters, draw inspiration from your current space by bringing an existing accent color to life, or consider selecting a dramatic pattern to bring excitement a room where most of the upholstery is solid. Take into consideration how many walls you plan to cover, a giant geometric may be more suited for an accent wall or a petit powder room instead of the four walls in your bedroom. A good rule of thumb is that the wallpaper should match the mood of your room. For example, a relaxing or romantic print for the bedroom, a bold and quirky print for a kids room, or rich and glamorous for a dining room will make sense in those spaces.
Below, see how a Jigsaw Designer took a bedroom from pretty to a fashionista haven simply by adding the navy and white striped wallpaper.

The transformation is huge. So, now that we have you on-board for trying wallpaper for your space, next…measuring and ordering.
Things to consider: Each variety of wallpaper has a bit different temperament than the other, so it is vital to the success of a wall coverings project to measure and order the appropriate amount of paper or fabric. Jigsaw also suggests using a professional contractor for application. This will take the stress off of you and avoid time and financially consuming mistakes.
While most wallpaper is pre-pasted to make hanging a bit easier, grasscloth is not. Therefore, applying specialty wallpaper glue will add a step to the instillation process. Finally, priming walls with a Shellac or any wallpaper primer will prep the walls for a beautiful final product.
