Why use two colors of wallpaper in a room
Before starting repairs or finishing work, it is necessary to evaluate the area, to identify the shortcomings. Plan work based on the identified result. The height of the ceilings, the curved walls, the narrow room, the little light - correctable vices. The proper use of wallpaper in two colors will create a style and solve interior flaws associated with the layout of the apartment.
Visual cheating options:

- Hide the mistakes of builders and bumps;
- Create an individual design according to personal needs.
The combination method is a win-win and versatile finish. Simple and affordable. World-recognized interior designers regularly use it.
Design elements should be the basis and attract attention, or become the background for bright accents. The impression of design depends on the competent distribution of parts.
What to consider when choosing two types of wallpaper
Standard apartments are a dull plexus of small rooms, impractical layouts, dark windows, hidden storage rooms and oblique corners. You can inspire life and comfort when selecting 2 types of wallpaper. But viewing a photo from the Internet before going to the wallpaper store is not enough. It is important to seriously approach the issue and tailor an individual solution.
Pay attention to:
- ceiling height;
- dimensions of the room;
- choose the texture of the wallpaper.
Identify the disadvantages of planning and solve using a combination of defects and defects. Take the initiative seriously, study the information, the combination of colors and techniques.
The combination of canvases of coarse and soft textures looks messy and careless, and the unsuccessful combination of colors and patterns is annoying. Properly selected wallpaper will provide a harmonious and attractive result, create coziness, mood, comfort. Emphasize the character and style of the owner, surprise friends.
When choosing the texture of matter and drawing, the level of ceilings is taken into account. If the height of the walls is less than 2.5 meters, canvases of light colors are suitable, without large patterns and a soft structure. Operating with horizontal lines wins, use on 1 wall, in corners or in the whole room. We accent the wall (section) with a medium-sized ornament without heavy inserts. Divide horizontally and combine coarse textures is not worth it. It is important to lighten and extend the space. At a ceiling height of 3 meters it is impossible to lift it, the general proportions are violated. Cross-sectional drawings will do. The lower part of the wall is advantageously decorated with washable dark wallpaper, and the upper part with canvases with bright and large ornaments. The background is neutral. Combine patterns in style and color tone.
There are 2 rules for the selection and combination of wallpaper. The first is the same thickness. The second is the same facial coating. Vinyl canvases combine with vinyl, and paper with paper.
When selecting wallpapers analyze the width, length and geometry of the room. Proportions are often disturbed and require additional attention. Standard rooms are rare. Narrow areas are expanded by a combination of light materials, and you can give comfort to large areas with dark wallpaper with bright ornament. Wall mural on 1 wall will do. An elongated room is easily divided into sectors in different shades. The recreation area should be decorated with dark tones, and the working one - light. The second option is to glue the wallpaper on the long walls darker, and narrow - lighter with an overlap on the long. Visually, the opposites come closer in size and the proportions are aligned. The location of the front door is also taken into account, if on the wide side, then in the center of the opposite wall we have a bright insert in the form of a picture or a panel. Playing with space is a popular designer trick in the world.
Particular attention should be paid to the choice of texture:
- Paper wallpapers are environmentally friendly classics that are harmless to health. Minus - fragile, quickly fade, can not be washed;
- Strong and durable material - vinyl wallpaper. Plus - water resistance, wash, minus - low breathability. They are used in the kitchen and in children's rooms;
- Non-woven - reliable and strong. Advantage - glue is applied only to the wall, and the canvas is applied and smoothed;
- Fiberglass - for those who like to experiment with color. Repainted up to 12 times without losing the picture;
- Natural canvases made from rice paper, bamboo and cane are antibacterial, exotic and soundproof materials.
If paintings and photographs are planned on the walls, then smooth wallpapers, plain or with a small pattern, will do. On uneven walls with defects apply design with spots of different sizes and colors. Wallpaper with sparkles and changing matte highlights are suitable in the guest room.
Ideally, when the room is located on the south or west side, but if the windows face east - there will be light only in the morning, and from the north it will not be at all. How to fix the situation and make the housing bright and lit? Do not turn the room into a "white cube." The situation will allow a combination of wallpaper. In the complete absence of light (with windows to the north), a combination of paintings of natural shades is practiced. Emerald, canary yellow, royal blue - will add comfort, warmth and depth to the room. You should abandon pastel, pearlescent and delicate tones, in the absence of light give a gray color and look dull. Like brick, pale purple, peach and light blue color. In low light (windows from the east) and artificial light, pastel and neutral colors are suitable: cream, beige, pale blue, golden, pale green shades.
The combination of different colors of wallpaper is a universal way of design and visual transformation of space. The result exceeds expectations. Among the many manners of layout, the main, most effective techniques are distinguished:
- Vertical combination (raises ceilings);
- Horizontal division (expands and gives proportions to small rooms with high ceilings);
- Zoning (favorably divides common rooms into sectors);
- Decorative inserts or panels (gives an elegant and classic style);
- Accent wall (controls attention, emphasizes profitable places and disguises defects).
It is important to connect the canvas of the same "temperature". All colors are divided into 2 groups - warm and cold. Do not mix. Wallpaper of different types in the design of one room - either glossy or matte. Otherwise, the interior will turn into vulgarity and bad taste.
Stripes placed vertically visually raise the ceiling. It is enough to apply the technique on 1-2 walls or corners, and on the remaining surfaces to use materials with a light pattern or texture, and the overhanging weight will go away. Often glued canvas with a vertical pattern, evenly distributed over all walls. The spacing and bandwidth may vary. Like the color with the picture. The shade to use is monochrome (from one color range) or contrasting, suitable according to the laws of color. But the texture of the wallpaper must be the same, otherwise it will turn out rude and disharmonious. It is easy to refresh a room and repair - by gluing vertically 2-3 strips of different shades in a certain sector. Often firms produce canvases with the same pattern, but in different colors and choosing 2 harmonious shades you can get an excellent result.
Classic design. Horizontal division has been used for a long time, with the advent of new textures the method works even better. Favorably divides the space across, visually expands a small area and lowers high ceilings. One thin strip pasted across the square is enough. The standard proportions are 1 to 3, from the top of the wall (light shades) or the bottom (dark shades). In half to divide - not worth it. Standard options for horizontal division:
|lower third - strip||2 thirds of the top - small ornament|
|lower third - fine pattern||2 thirds of the top - plain|
|lower 2 thirds - large ornament||top - plain|
By horizontal division extend the windowsill, create a high baseboard. In the children's room on the lower part it is profitable and practical to glue the washable wallpaper.
Important. The joints should be closed with a curb. Paper edging, molding, ceiling plinth or wooden battens.
Fashionable studio apartments now carry out several functions at once and mainly divide zones with the help of wallpaper of 2-3 colors. Zoning radically changes the room, draws attention to one sector and obscures the other. The method provides maximum functionality to the interior. The room will be divided into zones for the following reasons:
- separate the recreation area from the kitchen;
- a small area does not allow the use of partitions, and zonal pasting will allow to approximate the result;
- arrange furniture of different styles in different areas and avoid problems of contradictory design;
- highlight the main part;
- divide a large corridor into the entrance and the common;
- in the nursery for 2 children, divided into individual parts.
There are no rules for the combination of paints and textures. Cross line and vertical do an excellent job. As contrasting colors with patterns. Contradiction and difference in zoning is allowed and practiced.
Decorative inserts or panels
The first wallpapers were fabric and expensive, they were bought by wealthy people and glued not across the wall, but in frames. Now decorative inserts and panels are the main accent of room design. This is the only bright part, the rest of the area is decorated with monophonic canvases of a neutral color. Silk-screen printing, photo and bead wallpaper are used as elements of the insert.
Rules of arrangement:
- Placed on a large wall without photos, paintings and niches;
- The panel is the main emphasis and should remain the only one;
- Operate pieces of wallpaper, murals and three-dimensional elements;
- The frame is required.
To enhance the effect in large rooms, LED backlighting in the frame is used. Wall murals of nature and flowers on the main wall look advantageous. A romantic and dreamy style is created. City landscapes, on the contrary, bring dynamics. The decoration method using panels and inserts is very effective. Creates cosiness and individual design.
You can draw attention and project an original idea by creating an accent wall. Often practiced in 2 cases. The first is to divert attention from the vices of the room, the curved walls with cracks in old houses. The second is to highlight interior items, put a bed against a bright background, and separate the dining table in the kitchen. The wall attracts and accentuates the eye.
Quite an interesting way to decorate niches and ledges, delivering chores and disappointments. To achieve maximum productivity they use bright materials with large ornaments. As in the reception of inserts and panels for playing out the accent wall, you can use the murals of nature, animals, beach and city landscapes. There are no rules for combination, limitations of colors and textures, the main thing is to look nice and harmonious.
Wallpaper Combination Tips
Canvases should be the same texture and thickness. If you still use different textures for horizontal division of the joints, you should close it with a molding, wooden slats or an upper skirting board.
Colors are combined from one color scheme, different shades or completely opposite. Shades of blue or a combination of white and black.
In a small room it is better to use light wallpaper and apply the zoning method.
Non-standard layouts and defects should be smoothed with an accent wall or a combination of 2 types of paintings.
Emphasize special interior items with a decorative insert.
In a dark room with low walls, wallpaper the natural shades and ceiling. Do not use pastel and shiny shades, without light they give a gray tone. A high ceiling will hide horizontal division.
A large and deserted space will fill with cosiness a combination of dark, noble colors of paintings.
Wallpaper is a versatile and multifunctional decoration material. The use of a combination of 2 types of paintings transforms and improves the interior. The method is able to visually play with proportions and simulate space. Solves the problems of planning, lighting and construction defects. Creates an exclusive style and original design.
The merits of this method are endless. As well as methods of its application. A huge plus - accessibility for everyone and the ability to realize their fantasies on their own, at no additional cost.
