Striped Wallpaper – Fits In With Any Style

Striped wallpaper is a wonderful way to add dimension to a room especially a small room. Stripes usually give an appearance of height when hung vertically and can elongate a room if hung horizontally.

Decorating with stripes can create a classic traditional look or just as easily create a modern contemporary look. It all depends on the width of stripe and how you use them.

Striped wallpaper will look elegant if you choose a tone on tone colour scheme such as cream with white or if you use a matte and glossy version of the same colour. This look is classic and sophisticated especially when the stripes are the same width. You can see an example of this below with the use of wide vertical stripes in cream and white.

Striped wallpaper will also effortlessly create a very contemporary look just by using contrasting colours, bright bold colours and in varying widths.

Stripes are a feature within themselves so it’s best to avoid colours that clash. You want an edgy look but not cluttered and busy.

The size of the room is important when decorating with stripes. A larger room requires wider stripes. Thin stripes in a large room just creates a cluttered distracting look as the lines will tend to blend together. Wide stripes in a small room become overwhelming and lose their impact.

Stripes are quite neutral when it comes to patterns. They work well in any style or size of room. Stripes mix beautifully with solids, florals, and other patterns which means they can be incorporated just about anywhere. They can be used in a feminine way by choosing soft feminine colours or used in a masculine way for a bachelor pad by using strong colours such as charcoal, greys and caramels etc.

If you’re dying to redecorate and want to try experimenting with pattern then striped wallpaper is always a safe choice. We have found sophisticated black and white striped wallpaper to be especially popular and does give an instant “wow factor” feel to any area.
