When you think of wallpaper, what comes to mind? For some, it may be a pink floral that matches your grandma’s old couch set. While that look is iconic in its own way, especially given how we’ll never forget it, there are much more modern forms of wallpaper out there now, and that’s what we think of when we say wallpaper. We think of beautiful murals that can transform your room and take you to a whole new country or bright geometric prints that make your accent wall pop while perfectly encapsulating your personality.

Not only has the wallpaper changed since your grandma's time, but the rooms you may want to put it in have changed too. We have five unique rooms for wallpaper that will have you ready to redecorate in no time.

Laundry Room

You may not like spending much time in the laundry room, but that’s probably partly because they’re typically very boring rooms. Laundry rooms don’t tend to offer much in the way of creativity, so there’s not much to enjoy about them. But if you really take the laundry room and transform it into your space with some wallpaper and a bit of your personal touch, you can completely change it into a room that you may find yourself wanting to go into more and more.


That’s right, you can transform your closet into something special when you apply wallpaper to your closet. Whether you have a giant walk-in that has room for a sofa in addition to all your clothes or you are dealing with a more modest-sized closet, wallpaper can make it seem much larger than it actually is, while also making the area unique to you. If you love a tropical vibe, a print with palm leaves or a mural of a beach can be a relaxing and beautiful addition to the closet so you can get dressed with ease and start and end your day on a relaxed note.

Craft Room

Do you have a spare bedroom where you work on your crafts or sewing skills? If so, this is the perfect room to add some wallpaper to! Bright colors and patterns have been scientifically proven to help us be more creative, which is why a bright wallpaper accent wall is the perfect addition to a craft room. For something nature-inspired consider a fun print of your favorite animals or a large floral pattern.


Many people think of bright patterns and prints when they hear wallpaper, but there's so much more available. There are many natural grasscloths and faux wood wallpapers that can add a touch of elegance and refinement to a room such as an office. Take on your conference calls with confidence in front of a stately grasscloth wallpaper or take a moment to allow a real cork wallcovering bring you a moment of zen in between meetings.


Accent walls are a very popular way to incorporate wallpaper into a space. There are a few different ways you can go about creating an accent wall. One way is through paint, however, we think that’s a little boring. Instead, go with wallpaper, which can add a pop of color and pattern to the room. You can be more creative, and find something that suits your personality and your bedroom style if you choose a wallpaper accent.
