Textile wallpaper is growing in popularity among designers and homeowners alike. There is something luxurious and elegant about covering the walls of your home in materials that stand out. Some designers call these types of coverings “luxury you can touch”, which is not far from the truth. They can completely change the tone of a room, and add class, coziness, or a homey feel to whatever space they are applied depending on the type of textile you choose. Some homeowners may be uncertain how to best take advantage of this popular approach to interior design, but, thankfully, it isn’t difficult to get the hang of once you familiarize yourself with the vast number of options available. Here are a few tips on how to decorate with textile wallcoverings.

Consider The Space And The Desired Tone

Before you even wander into a store or begin browsing online, consider the space and the tone you want your space to convey. In some areas, woven fabrics and natural fibres may be ideal – especially if you are going for a cozy or homey feel to a room. Silk or felt may be ideal for other areas, where you are looking to make more of a dramatic statement due to their vibrant and rich look.

Think About The Room’s Use

Another factor to keep in mind is the overall use of the room. You’ll want to choose a textile that is easy to clean and resistant to wear and tear in high traffic areas, but can opt for something a little more delicate when it comes to areas such as the bedroom or living room. Keep in mind that certain brands as well as certain textiles will have their own unique cleaning instructions, so be sure you ask about these before you make a final purchase. For example, some collections advise against cleaning with a vacuum cleaner or wet cleaning, making them a bit trickier to keep clean than other collections.
