Choose a wallpaper material, keeping in mind that a living room where people come and go frequently is a spot where dirt and odors can easily get on the wall.

The choice of your living room wallpaper material and design should depend on what use you make of the room. What do you use your living room for?

The concept of a living room may refer to a common room designed to receive guests and communicate with family members. But also, often the living room combines the role of a bedroom.

And there are many other diverse uses you can make of the living room. For example, the living room is the ideal respite for peaceful reading.

The word “living room” has recently appeared in our vocabulary, replacing the usual meaning of “hall”.

Custom-made living room wallpaper

Make sure to use living room wallpaper that has a “dirt prevention”  function.

Especially, the silk fabric wallpaper that is washable and hard to wear is recommended for homes.

Consider and select the functions that you want to emphasize according to your lifestyle. But you are better off choosing simple colors to match furniture such as tables and sofas. Because you can’t relax in a space that doesn’t match the things in your living room. And therefore avoid a wide range of colors and patterns.

Consider the balance between the color of the wallpaper in the rooms connected to the living room. And these are the hallway, kitchen, and dining room next room. If possible, unify all the wallpapers to make the space look wider.  But when changing only the wallpaper of the living room, consider the connection with the adjacent place.

If you have a lot of children, you may want to make your living room colorful. In such a case, it is a good idea to finish the wallpaper with calm beige or white. And prepare furniture with pop colors.

Custom designs and colors

Wallpaper for the living room plays a special role because it is mainly in this room that you receive guests. And therefore, the correct selection of a model with a suitable color and the long service life is very important. 

A custom-made, perfectly matched product, can visually enlarge the room and give it elegance. The wallpaper mural, first of all, should not be defiant, but calm and practical. It should also be able to maintain the microclimate and not accumulate dust.

To increase the life of the wallpaper, you need to choose the right materials for decorating the living room. And you will not find any other better than our silk fabric.

Here you can buy wallpaper for the living room, both in classic and modern styles, plain or ornamental. Our consultants will help you choose decorative coverings for a large living room in a private house or a small room. Here you will find beautiful wallpaper for the living room of a studio apartment (for space zoning). As well as options for finishing the living room combined with the kitchen.

Colors for living room wallpaper

Using selected colors, and their saturation, of a living room wallpaper, you can create various interior effects. For example, highlight functional areas, “raise” low ceilings, “push apart” walls, “lighten up” a room, or, on the contrary, create an intimate atmosphere.

In interior design, this technique is widely used.

The most important thing is the choice of shade – light or darkIt depends on what the interior looks like. If you are dealing with a small area, then choose rather light colors for the living room. Because these will not overwhelm it and will not affect the optical reduction. Homeowners with larger living rooms usually have much greater choices. There, you can easily bet on such colors for the living room as graphite or anthracite.

The most popular wallpaper color shades for a living room are:

  • Beige,
  • Peach,
  • Grey,
  • White,
  • Black,
  • Brown.

Simple tones make it possible to emphasize the style of the interior and the beauty of the room. For the design not to look boring, several shades of the same color are selected.

In this case, the furniture will not “merge” with the walls. Additionally, juicy contrasting accents are introduced – bright poufs, cushions on the sofa, or even the sofa itself, etc.

Wallpaper design in the living room is often chosen by popular styles, such as loft, art deco, modern, and others. You can reproduce them in full, following from the first to the last letter, or, without delving into details, create your mix of different styles.

Pastel colors wallpaper 

Light living room wallpaper colors will give it splendor, and add illumination, especially in cases where the windows face the north side. Gradual, gradient darkening from top to bottom will create the illusion of high ceilings. The traditional design of living rooms is the decoration of the lower part of the walls, which gets dirty faster, in dark, and the upper part in light tones.

Are you looking for a shade that will be safe? Pastel colors will probably be the answer to your needs. They are extremely neutral and create an excellent base for various types of arrangementsThey perfectly complement both the Bohemian style and the slightly bolder Art Deco interiors.

Strong and saturated colors for the living room 

Among the colors for the living room wallpaper that are fashionable this year, you can find very saturated, energetic colors. Yellow and blue are very popular.

It is worth remembering, however, that one of these shades should dominate the interior. Then you will avoid the impression of excess.

The color scheme is selected by the chosen style of the room and the personal tastes of the customer, while several general rules must be followed to create a comfortable interior:

  • Too bright and “acidic” tones should be avoided, especially in large areas;
  • In rooms with a lack of natural light, you should not paste over the walls with wallpaper in dark, saturated colors;
  • In small living rooms, it is better to use one tone for the walls, and it should be light.

Combining wallpaper in the living room

The room reserved for the living room may have an irregular shape or ceilings that are too low. A very large room is also not always good: a person will not feel very comfortable in it. These and some other shortcomings can be corrected by combining wall coverings of different colors, patterns, and textures.


By highlighting one of the walls with photo wallpaper, or wallpaper in a contrasting tone, you can partially correct the geometry of the space. Using the combined wallpaper in the living room in the vertical direction, they visually “raise” the ceilings, in the horizontal direction they “expand” the walls.


Various combinations of wallpaper colors in the living room are used to divide the space into functional areas – a fireplace area, a reading area, a TV viewing area, and others. The same technique helps to highlight the living room in open layouts.

The zoning of a large room into functional areas is quite common. The combination can emphasize the main advantages of the room by drawing attention to certain parts of it. For example, turn the eyes of guests to a fireplace, shelving, or a new sofa.

Wallpaper – a decorative element 

The wallpaper of two colors in the living room can be used to create an original wall décor from wallpaper with a pattern or pattern. For example, all walls are light, and several sections are dark with a pattern, they can be framed using a wooden, metal, or plastic plank.

Before you buy wallpaper for the living room, when choosing, you should take into account:

  • environmental friendliness. The safety of residents and walls will depend on the purity factor of the material. The product must breathe so that the wall does not get wet and release toxins;
  • room style. By the design, secondary interior elements are selected. The wallpaper should include the proper ornament and color scheme. You can purchase a universal canvas that is suitable for different styles of the room;
  • sticking difficulty. This includes the presence of a pattern and the principle of gluing (butt, overlap). The difficulty lies in adjusting the image so that the wallpaper is applied evenly to the wall.

If you adhere to these criteria when choosing paintings, the interior and atmosphere of the room will become more favorable and comfortable.

Other criteria for choosing living room wallpaper

Wallpaper in the living room must be selected according to the following criteria:

  • The size of the room – the smaller it is, the lighter the main and companion wallpapers should be. Stripes are suitable for a living room with low ceilings.
  • Illumination – if the windows are on the north side, warm colors are better, on the south – cold ones, for example, blue, white, and gray.
  • Many windows, and doors – choose plain, without patterns, you can combine two colors.
  • Roughness of the walls, layout features, and bay windows – geometry will help.

The overall style of the room is also important when choosing. Modern ones require imitation of materials, for example, brick, plaster, and masonry, the loft is ideal for using black wallpaper. For Provence, light floral patterns, and unobtrusive geometry are suitable.

A large living room in a classic style will require dark color schemes with an unobtrusive pattern.

We offer a variety of wallpaper options for the hall too.

How to choose and paste combined wallpaper in the living room

Sometimes the same wallpaper on all the walls looks rather boring and monotonous. For this reason, canvases are often combined to make the room look fresh and attractive. But for a harmonious combination, you need to choose products similar in style and tone. The combination is carried out in the methods of combination:

  • different shades of color (blue, cyan; light green, green, etc.);
  • plain canvas and a pattern (striped, with monograms);
  • different tones (neutral and bright colors);
  • diversified one or more shades (dark blue and beige).
