Wallpaper Border Tips

A wall-covering integrated with the correct Wallpaper Border can greatly enhance the entire room decoration – with a little touch of professionalism, creativity and a few basic skills thrown in. Some of these tips may be helpful while hanging Borders for your wall.

First of all, decide which corner of the wall you want to start installing the Wallpaper Border. As for the height, a chair rail height is commonly used but should not be compulsory. Go for a design, which will best complement the overall décor of the room.

You can create beautiful architectural features by applying Wallpaper Borders around doors and windows. For example, outlining with thin strips from the border can really accentuate the shape of doors and windows, especially if you happen to have those big, ugly traditional ones.

Ceilings are often overlooked while decorating with Wallpaper Borders. What many people do not know is that installing bars on the ceiling can give a nice effect to the room décor, holding it together visually.

Experimenting with paintings can also be useful while decorating with Wallpaper Borders. For example, painting contrasting colors in and around the Border, in an array of different styles can really give a dull room some color and light. You might need to do a little sketching on paper first before applying the paintings.

Vertically applied Wallpaper Borders can create visually enhancing textures for your walls. With a little more imagination, you can also make unique designs by hanging Borders in unusual directions and shapes.

Creativity is always important while installing Wallpaper Borders. For example, double bordering and using multiple Wallpaper Borders can give a very nice coated effect, while a nice drop-ceiling effect can be achieved by applying the Wallpaper Border a few inches below the ceiling all around the room.
