Get Things Rolling - Planning for your Wallpaper Design and Installation

Home decorating is an exciting and fulfilling experience. Here's a list of questions to ask yourself before you get started. The answers should give you a solid foundation from which to begin choosing patterns and colors of your wallcovering, as well as giving you a sense of what accessories such as pillows, comforters, and window fashions might be just perfect for your new room.

  • How do I use the room (i.e. sleep, eat, activity) and how often do I use it?
  • Who uses the room?
  • How much time is spent in the room?
  • Do I want a formal or informal setting?
  • Is the room large or small?
  • Do I want the room to appear larger or smaller?
  • What are the givens (must work with carpet, tile, etc.)?
  • What do I want to be the center of interest? (i.e. furniture, wallcovering, art piece)
  • What colors are already in the furniture, drapes and carpeting, or fixtures and tiles?
  • Will I be replacing any of these?
  • What exactly are the room's dimensions?
  • How much money do I want to invest?

We have provided these questions in a printable form for you to use before you select your patterns.
