From bedrooms and hallways to living rooms, bathrooms, and kitchens. Sure, you heard me right. Yes, even in an extremely wet and moisture full room you can now flaunt some striking style via wallpaper. Some of these are Marble and granite contact paper which are 100% waterproof.

Often people ask me for wallpaper designs for living. Or wallpaper for bedrooms, dining room hallways, etc. I will show you why we don’t classify wallpaper that way. Because wallpaper suitable for living room might be also suitable for other rooms. A good example is plain solid color wallpaper. Just like plain color paint, you can use it in any room. So let me classify wallpaper according to patterns, composition, geometric shapes, and visual motifs.

However, another difference between Old Wallpaper vs. New Wallpaper is you can now find wallpaper that mimics other popular decor trends. Whether it’s the timber tones in ship-lap, the bathroom marble or granite tile look, or the appearance of a 3D brick wall.  New wallpapers offer such realistic-looking designs that the appearance is identical to the actual thing.

The purpose of Old Wallpaper was largely aesthetic and mostly floral. The function wasn’t a consideration. Today wallpaper is designed to meet the needs of interior designers. It has been purposed to make narrow rooms feel wide, short rooms feel taller and shallow rooms feel deeper.

Wallpaper designers today focus on accent walls, where one wall has wallpaper setting it apart from the rest of the room. Or cleverly using horizontal and vertical stripes wallpaper to change the feel of a room’s dimensions.  Now new wallpaper boasts designs that give the impression of other materials like granite and marble, 3D bricks, or wood effects.

A guide to most common wallpaper patterns and designs

Wallpaper patterns come in all kinds of colors, shapes, sizes, repeats, and schemes. That’s why picking the right wallpaper pattern—and mixing prints—can be tricky. Here are the most common;

Basket weave Wallpaper Designs

Designed to resemble the crisscross weave of a basket, basket weave wallpaper patterns are printed onto to create a symmetrical effect. As a traditional woven, a basket weave wallpaper can introduce warmth to a room to balance out more neutral and subdued tones. When used correctly, the texture is a great contrast to a muted palette and can also complement a minimalist style.

There are many different weave patterns out there, all of which create different wallpaper designs.

  • Plain weave is the most fundamental type of wallpaper weave design. In plain weave, the warp and weft are interlaced in a basic crisscross pattern resulting in a checkerboard style appearance.
  • Then there is twill among the most widely used weaves in wallpaper designs. You can easily identify this pattern by its diagonal lines. Twill weave an alternating sequence which creates a diagonal ribbed pattern.
  • Jacquard weave wallpaper design creates a bespoke wallpaper pattern or image, allowing patterns of endless complexity of woven-like design on wallpaper.
  • Dobby weaves are those which contain small geometric patterns. The Dobby loom is almost like a simplified Jacquard loom.

Brocade Wallpaper Designs

A typically shuttle-woven or printed wallpaper most commonly in silver or gold thread. Brocade has an embossed appearance similar to embroidery.  No surprise then you’re most likely to find brocades in more traditionally designed spaces.

The ditsy print is a timeless pattern style in fabrics that dates back to the 1920’s era. It is a tight, all-over pattern composed of tiny motifs scattered in every direction. This makes for a lively print even with more subdued color palettes. Although floral motifs are most commonly used, you will find a ditsy print can in geometric and conversational motifs as well.

There are four common characteristics found in most ditsy patterns:

  • use of small-scale motifs
  • tossed, all-over pattern
  • liveliness is actual or implied
  • prints are multi-directional, meaning ditsy fabric can be seen in any direction

Wallpaper Murals

Some of the most alluring wallpaper is wallpaper murals. A mural is defined as any piece of artwork painted or applied directly on a wall, ceiling, or other permanent surfaces. Wallpaper murals mainly refer to scenic wallpaper such as forests, waterfalls, wildlife, and portrait. A good number of people erroneously refer to them as 3d wallpaper. Whereas 3d wallpaper could be even brick wallpaper or geometric wallpaper. While ordinary wallpaper such as brick wallpaper comes preprinted and in a universal standard size. And thus has repeat patterns, mural wallpaper is customized.

Damask Wallpaper Designs

To understand Damask Wallpaper we need to define “Damask”.  Today, the word damask refers to a certain design whether on wallpaper or fabric. But this has not always been the case. Damask wallpaper, derives its name from the fine patterned fabrics produced in Damascus (Syria) in the European Middle Ages. True damask was originally wholly of silk, but gradually the name came to be applied to a certain type of pattern whether on fabric or wallpaper regardless.

In fabrics, single damask has a single set each of warps and wefts or fillings. And maybe woven in one or two colors; a compound or double damask has a greater number of fillings. Damask is woven on a Jacquard loom, the satin field being produced by floats of warp that pass over from two to seven and in some instances nine fillings. The design is a plain or taffeta weave, the warp and filling being at right angles that create less luster than the satin areas.

Damask is defined as rich, heavy silk or linen fabric with a pattern woven into it, used for table linen and upholstery. You can have walls covered with a damask. At the moment we don’t have real linen damask wall coverings in Kenya. Damask wallpaper is available at Wallpaper Kenya and is one of the most popular wallpaper designs.

While a starry ceiling looks awesome, you will find that this finish doesn’t look exactly flattering in the kitchen. Use glitter wallpaper designs sparingly, just one feature wall in the living room.

Another environment where a glitter wallpaper gives its best is the kid’s room. Glitter wallpaper is particularly suitable to use in the bedroom of a young girl; silver glitter wallpaper can also complement the ceiling in a master or kid’s bedroom. We wouldn’t recommend using it in other environments at home other than those mentioned above. Despite the trend, you can get tired of the sparkles quickly.

Modern Wallpaper Designs

The phrase “modern wallpaper” is one of the most misused phrases in decorating. Often confused with contemporary wallpaper. Today’s modern wallpaper designs are based on a design movement that was born around the turn of the 20th century. Modern wallpaper design styles and decor celebrate nature designs, neutral or earthy colors, and the elimination of unnecessary detailing. While you may see a range of colors in contemporary wallpaper styling, modern wallpaper would have monochromatic colors.

 Modern wallpaper designs are simple and unadorned. The modern wallpaper trend continued to grow in popularity throughout the first half of the 20th century, and later derivatives of this style are known as mid-century modern wallpaper. One of the key beliefs behind the modern design movement is the idea that “form follows function.” In other words, the design of all furnishings and decorative objects should reflect its intended purpose, and if a furnishing, décor, or decorating detail does not have a practical purpose, then it can be eliminated. The most modern wallpaper design, therefore, is Contact Paper which emphasizes function more than they look.

In addition to light-colored wallpaper using mirrors for additional light, natural light reflection add a feeling of additional space. Just like a 3D wallpaper will give you an optical Illusion to see in three dimensions even though the image hitting your eyes is only two dimensional.
