Wallpaper Ideas for Your Dining Room

Imagine savoring your favorite meal in a dining room that oozes style and sophistication. I’ve rounded up some great dining room wallpaper ideas that’ll make every dinner feel special. 

Dining rooms are the hub for family dinners and special moments. Sometimes, they even moonlight as the perfect homework spot for the kiddos. The rooms also often carry a formal vibe. You can make it extra special with stunning wallpaper. 

This vibrant wallpaper’s botanical pattern sets the stage for a stunning green traditional dining room. The dark-painted ceiling, paired with green wainscoting and trim, creates a captivating harmony with the bold colors of the wallpaper. Isn’t it so pretty?

Check out the stunning shibori design on the black and white wallpaper, adding flair to this eclectic dining space. The dining room is a great place to use something with more geometric patterns – like this.

And oh, those mirrors at the back of the cabinets! Not only do they reflect the wallpaper’s pattern, but they also dance with the natural light, creating a play of brightness. A perfect blend of style and practicality!

Wallpaper Ideas for Your Living Room

Your living room is the heart of the home, right? Let’s give it the love it deserves with these living room wallpaper ideas!

Even this temporary peel-and-stick wallpaper accent wall in this living room from Nesting with Grace makes a huge difference! You can totally get the wallpaper look on a budget with something like this.

For the little ones, we’ve got designs rounded up below that will spark imagination and bring joy. 

This is a great option if you want to go a little more bold and bright in your kid’s room than you may go elsewhere in your house. This gorgeous mural wallpaper with hand-painted floral designs is perfect for a little girl’s room.

Chris Loves Julia went with the complete opposite of bold in this nursery with a soft and subtle cloud pattern wallpaper on the walls in this nursery space. With the bottom portion of the walls covered in wainscoting, it provides an elegant look to the whole space. 

Wallpaper Ideas for Your Powder Room or Small Bathroom

Who says bathrooms have to be boring? Dive into a sea of creativity with bathroom wallpaper ideas to turn your bathroom into a personal spa retreat. 

Taking it a step further, I think wallpaper in a small bathroom or even a powder room is a great choice! These examples show us that wallpaper, even those with a bold pattern, works even in a small space.

Elegant white peonies and bluebirds create a picturesque scene on the misty green canvas of this traditional chinoiserie wallpaper design in this small bathroom.

I love that it is installed above the white-painted beadboard instead of on the entire space. It creates a great balance.

This countryside wall mural is absolutely gorgeous. This wallpaper design definitely has a moody and vintage feel that would be perfect in a bedroom.

I could also see it being a perfect fit for a living room, sitting room, powder room, family room, or guest room!  

The addition of the peony patterned wallpaper over the black-painted beadboard wall treatment adds so much coziness to this gorgeous guest bedroom.

Since it is such a bold wallpaper pattern, she scales it back and calms it down by just using it on the top part of the walls over the beadboard. It also makes the ceiling height feel higher than it really is. A creative little trick of the eyes.

Wallpaper Ideas for Your Hallway

Hallways are an inevitable part of most floor plans, but they don’t have to be dull passageways. Wallpaper is a great opportunity to give these otherwise boring spaces something with new life.

Grasscloth wallpaper is a fun wallpaper to use because it brings in additional texture – which is always a good thing. The textured stripes of this hallway wallpaper added just enough to this small space.
