Digital print wallpaper

For those who are serious about creating one-of-a kind designs, digital printing may just be your favorite 2017 wallpaper trend. This process puts you in the driver’s seat by letting you create wallpaper from any image your heart desires. Essentially, this trend gives you complete authority over how the finished product looks.

As for how it’s done, the process is actually fairly simple. All you need to do is get in contact with a company — like Mega Print Inc. — that provides these services. Once you send off the high-resolution photo of your choice, they’ll likely send you a few proofs to test out the look before printing the final version on large panels that adhere to your walls.

But, by far the coolest feature of wallpaper’s technology upgrade? Your pick won’t necessarily need to stick around forever. Many digital wallpaper companies will also print on alternative materials like fabric or vinyl. When combined with a lower-grade adhesive, these materials can peel off the wall whenever you’re ready for a change.

Metallic wallpaper

If sleek and elegant designs are a must in your home, metallic wallpaper should be high up on your list of considerations. The slight shine these wallpapers give off is enough to add a luxe feel to any space, at a comparatively low price point.

Placement and quantity are your biggest concern when choosing a metallic wallpaper. Since these prints tend to have a stately quality to them, they are a natural choice for more formal spaces like dining rooms or foyers. However, as long as the quantity of wallpaper you’re using is also taken into account, they can be worked into just about any space.

Since metallic wallpapers tend to be a bolder choice, less is sometimes more. If covering the space wall-to-wall is your goal, then stick to smaller spaces like bathrooms. (The light reflected by the metallics can actually help them appear larger!) In more spacious rooms, you can keep the print from becoming overwhelming by just covering one wall and making that the focal point.

2017 wallpaper trends go beyond the wall

  • Line your drawers with wallpaper: After all, there’s no reason for the inside to be boring.
