“My childhood bedroom had wallpaper that was printed with clouds and rainbows.” –  Brad Goreski

Your bedroom walls are boring. They’re painted a plain color, and while it’s pretty, it isn’t very exciting. It’s time to give your bedroom an update with these bedroom wallpaper ideas. Thanks to modern technology and innovation, today’s wallpaper is nothing like what you remember from the past.

These easy to apply papers transform your walls to look like you hired an artist to create a custom design. Others turn your home into a new structure with textures like brick, stone, and wood.

Whether you cover all of your walls or create an accent wall, these modern wallpaper ideas are perfect for giving your bedroom a fresh new appeal.

1. Dark Colored Wallpaper

Dark colors tend to get skipped over when people choose a wall colour scheme. But this is doing your bedroom a disservice. Whether you have a large or small bedroom, you can make dark walls work.

Darker wallpaper can transform your bedroom into a sleek and sophisticated or modern bedroom. If you’re afraid of turning your bedroom into a dark pit, then only use the dark wallpaper on one or two walls.

The trick to making this look work is picking the perfect wallpaper. You could commit to the dark with a textured black. It could look like suede, leather, or cork. This prevents the black wallpaper from looking like a void.

Another option is to choose a dark color wallpaper that has a bright pattern on it. This lets you try out the darker look without fully committing. The brighter colored pattern balances the darker color and keeps your bedroom from looking too moody.

 

2. Faux Brick And Panelling

Exposed brick is stunning and gives your bedroom decor a sense of authenticity. But not all of us are lucky enough to live in a house that has traditional exposed brick or wood paneling.

That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy this look. You could install bricks or paneling as an accent wall, but this can get expensive and time-consuming to install.

Give your bedroom design a vintage touch with wallpaper that looks like bricks or wood paneling. What’s nice about this solution is that it’s more affordable than actual bricks and wood panels. It’s also significantly easier to install.

For the best finished product, invest in quality wallpaper. It should have a large pattern to minimize pattern repeating. Some wallpapers have texture. This creates the illusion of authenticity, which tricks people into thinking you have real bricks or wood on your wall.

 

3. Floral Bedroom Wallpaper

When you think of floral wallpaper, you think of the old-school wallpaper that’s in your grandmother’s dining room or powder room. If you like the look of traditional wallpaper, then this is your perfect choice. It’s a small pattern that endlessly repeats across the entire wall. You can find it in countless colors and floral varieties.

Not all of us want our walls to look like our grandmother’s. That doesn’t mean you have to give up on having a floral design. Modern trends eliminate the repeating pattern and instead opt for a large scale design.

This wallpaper will have a handful of oversized flowers that tack up the entire wall space. The entire design takes up the entire wall, so it doesn’t repeat. Some other designs combine other trends, such as fine lines or geometric shapes. This modernizes a traditional floral design.

 

4. Kids Bedroom Wallpaper

Have some fun when decorating your children’s rooms. Don’t take yourself so seriously that you can’t add some whimsy or humor. You can do this by choosing a wallpaper that has a unique pattern. Choose a wallpaper that has flowers, stars, or clouds for your girl’s bedroom. Choose animals, cars, an ocean theme, or even bananas for your boy’s bedroom.

This is your chance to choose interior design ideas that wouldn’t seem appropriate in any other room in your home. Let your children get involved by picking a wallpaper that has some of their favorite things. Maybe they have a favorite animal that you could have all over the wallpaper. Or perhaps they have a favorite color that you could have featured throughout the wallpaper.

Your child’s tastes and interests will change relatively quickly. So don’t pick a wallpaper and expect it to stay on the walls for the next ten years.

Peel and stick wallpaper is perfect for this application. You peel the backing off and stick it on the wall. Then when you’re ready to remove it, you peel it off.

 

5. Mural Bedroom Wallpaper

Modern wallpaper trends turn your blank white wall into a feature wall with a large scale design. This wallpaper is size-specific, so you’ll have to custom order it for the size of your wall. The wall mural is a single non-repeating design that takes up the entire wall.

Typically wallpaper murals create a scene, such as a forest setting, the beach, or cityscape. It could be black and white or full color. Some have a photorealistic design, while others look more like artwork. Watercolor designs are popular in modern design trends. They use soft colors that complement a variety of interior design approaches.

You’ll find that these designs typically come on removable wallpaper. This makes it ideal for renters who will need to remove it at the end of their lease term. They’re also great for people who like to regularly change and update their homes.

 

6. Nature-Inspired Bedroom Wallpaper

Adding elements of nature to your bedroom can create a calming effect. It’s nice because you can have the colors of green without having to care for plants. Maybe you choose a design that has a calming forest with mist and treetops. Or perhaps you choose a nautical design that features the deep sea with large creatures swimming on the wall.

Place this bold wallpaper behind your headboard. If this sounds like too much for your bedroom, then why not try it in your guest bedroom? Pair your bedroom wallpaper design with the rest of the room.

Tropical palms can look beautiful with wicker, rattan, or light wood furniture. Nautical wallpaper looks lovely with teak wood furniture. A vintage-inspired nature scene can look elegant with Victorian or baroque inspired furniture.

 

7. Patterned Wallpaper

When it comes to patterns, there’s a head-spinning number of options for your wallpaper. The pattern that you choose will completely depend on your taste, sense of style, and the look you’re trying to create in your room.

There’s striped wallpaper for a simple design. Or you could have patterned wallpaper for a bolder design. A geometric pattern will make your bedroom feel modern by embracing minimalist trends.

Consider how the pattern will change the feel of your room. A vertical stripe will make the walls feel taller than they actually are. In contrast, horizontal stripes will make the room feel longer.

Wallpaper patterns come in scales, such as a thin stripe that’s less than an inch wide or stripes that are several inches wide. A geometric pattern could mimic penny tile with a small shape that repeats hundreds of times. Or it could be triangles that are a foot or more in length, so they only repeat a few times.

If you decide to use a busy pattern on the wall, keep the other room’s other elements less busy. While some patterns complement each other, this is a delicate balance and takes skill to successfully achieve. It’s safer to stick with solids in the colors used in the wallpaper.

 

8. Printed Wallpaper

Embrace the look of a repeating pattern on your walls. Instead of choosing traditionally printed wallpaper with flowers or damask, choose one with a modern print. You could use this patterned wallpaper in your master, children’s, or guest room.

Choose a pattern or print that will fit the room design. Consider the wallpaper design from all aspects, such as color, print, and scale. You don’t want to choose a print that’s too small and repeats too many times on the wall. This will look overwhelming. It’s also not good to pick a print that’s too large; it won’t repeat enough and look out of place.

Most prints feature a limited number of colors, such as two or three. This limits the wallpaper’s color pallet. You can then use these colors throughout the room for a cohesive design. Choose a primary color that becomes the main color in the room. Then choose the secondary color in the paper to become the accent color in the room.

 

9. Simple And Light-Colored Wallpaper

Not all wallpaper needs to be a bold statement that becomes the focal point in the room. Some wall coverings are meant to provide a soft and subtle backdrop to your other decorating ideas. Wallpapers with pastel colours are perfect for this.

They are light and bright, which helps the entire room to feel brighter and bigger. The subtle color is softer than a stark white, which adds warmth to the room.

Be careful when choosing your pastel color. You don’t want to choose a wallpaper that makes your bedroom feel like a nursery. Choose one with a sophisticated pattern to help the lighter color feel more mature. It could have a geometric, floral, or abstract pattern. You can also choose a lighter color that isn’t associated with nurseries, such as sage green.

 

10. Wallpaper With Metallic Prints and Design

Metallics are everywhere in modern design trends. So it’s no surprise that you’ll see metallic wallpaper making its appearance. You’ll find it in everything from soft silvers and rose gold to pure gold and bronze. Embrace modern trends with a geometric design or opt for something unique, such as a script font or nature-inspired pattern.

Adding a hint of metallic to your master bedroom walls gives them a sense of sophistication and elegance. Mix your trends and use a dark-colored wallpaper that’s highlighted with a metallic. This creates a stunning bedroom design as the two contrast with each other. For a soft and feminine feel, look for a pastel pink and metallic paper. This would be perfect for a girl’s room.

 

11. Textured Wallpaper

Adding texture to your contemporary bedroom keeps it from looking monotone and bland. The texture makes the space feel warm, welcoming, and cozy. It also breaks up the room to create depth and visual interest.

Textured wallpaper could have a subtle linen feel that’s perfect for covering all of your bedroom walls. On the opposite end of the spectrum, you could have a bold crocodile texture. Somewhere in the middle, there are textures like embossing, flocking, 3D, faux fabric, or even faux fur.

When considering textured wallpaper in your bedroom ideas, remember that this wallpaper can be tricky to apply. You’ll want the texture to line up on the wall. Otherwise, your eye will be drawn to the mismatched texture, and it will negatively distract from the rest of the room.
