Whether you want a home makeover or you have new construction, the key to transforming ordinary walls into distinctive art is in the details.
And you will achieve this best with wallpaper.

It is also noteworthy that when you decorate your ceiling with wallpaper, most especially embossed wallpaper, you sound-roof your room to a certain extent.
When designing a room many people forget about the ceiling. That is wrong. It pays to incorporate the ceiling into your overall interior decoration.
To interior designers, the ceiling is referred to as the “fifth wall”. The ceiling is just as important as any other wall when it comes to interior decoration.
Soundproofing the ceiling with wallpaper
Is soundproof wallpaper sound too good to be true, isn’t it? But the concept is simple enough. For the wallpaper to be embossed it must be a dense paper that can be pasted onto the ceiling.
Just like any other wallpaper, this will help dampen the sound coming into the room.
Let’s be clear. No paper, no matter how dense or thick it is, will transform any room from sounding like the inside of a drum to the inside of a library.
But embossed ceiling wallpaper has acoustic properties to make a minimal difference to the amount of sound getting into your room.
Therefore, if all you are looking for is something to turn down the ambient background noise of some distant traffic or distant chatting then embossed wallpaper could make enough of a difference to be worth considering.
In any case, you are looking for ceiling decoration and this is only a rider or an added advantage.
Acoustic properties of embossed ceiling wallpaper
Embossed wallpaper’s acoustic properties are derived from layering, instead of just being made up of a simple patterned sheet like most wallpapers are. It is made from multiple layers which help break up and disrupt sound waves as they travel through it.
Some soundproof wallpapers also contain a layer of insulation inside them which further dampens your ceiling and/or wall against sound. If you buy a decent soundproof wallpaper then yes, it will work. However, as with all things soundproofing, it will work only to a certain extent.
It will not stop loud noises getting from through. However, it may take the edge off low background ambient noises such as conversation which can be faintly heard through.
All the same, I hasten to say, if you are hoping that thick wallpaper is going to completely soundproof your apartment then you will be disappointed.
Embossed ceiling wallpaper works for soundproofing only if you don’t expect too much of it!
