Combining Paint and Wallpaper in a Single Room

combining paint and wallpaperGenerally you have two choices when it comes to renovating a living room or bedroom wall: paint or wallpaper. Does it really have to be one or the other though? There’s no rule saying you can’t combine the best of both worlds. A paint/wallpaper combination design can really create a unique look. Here are some approaches if you think this is a design scheme that may work well for your home.

Paint and Wallpaper Design Ideas

For the Bedroom

Residential painting projects for the bedroom can benefit from this type of renovation. You can designate an accent wall and use a decorative wallpaper while using a neutral paint color for the remaining walls. You can also do the opposite and choose a bold color for the accent wall while using simple wallpaper for the other three sides.

The wall against the head of the bed should be the accent wall. This will accentuate the main furniture and other secondary furniture lined against it.

For the Living Room

We especially recommend paint and wallpaper for living room walls that have chair rail moldings. The molding and everything below it can be painted while wallpaper can be applied above it. If the living room does not have chair rail moldings, then you can use the same strategy described for the bedroom. In this case, the wall with a mantel or entertainment center will be the accent wall.

For offices

Our commercial painters have tackled workplace offices using a similar concept. This may include a neutral paint for two sides, wallpaper for one side, and idea paint for the wall closest to the desk.
