Ultimate Wallpaper Trends To Make Your Home Stand Out


What Are The Most Up-To-Date Wallpaper Trends For The Year Ahead?

If you’re thinking about giving your home a makeover this year, you need to be aware of the most up-to-date wallpaper trends to keep your rooms looking innovative and fresh, and feeling contemporary. These are some of the top wallpaper trends for the year ahead that can turn your home into a stylish oasis.

1. Ombre Wallpaper

If you haven’t seen the ombre wallpaper trend yet, it’s time to take a closer look! This exciting gradient wallpaper is perfect for smaller rooms, accent walls, and for downstairs cloakrooms thanks to its stylish yet subtle look.

2. Faux Texture Wallpaper

Faux-textured walls have been popular for a while, with brick and concrete-style wallpapers having proved to be especially popular in industrial-chic kitchens. This year, though, the faux texture trend has expanded still further, with marble, wood, and panelling themes all creating the illusion of beautiful and unique surfaces. This trend is perfect for coordinating with existing real textures – try pairing a faux brick wall with a real wood floor, or faux wood panels with a velvet sofa.

3. Monochrome Wallpaper

Black and white has long been a popular colour combination in the home, and monochrome décor looks like it’s sticking around for the year ahead. A great partner to today’s Scandi décor styles, monochrome wallpapers also work wonderfully with bold colour accents in any room of the home.

4. Bold, Dark Wallpapers

There is a trend this year for bolder and more adventurous wallpapers, and one look that is set to be especially popular is the moody, dark trend. While dark paint colours have been cropping up in homes nationwide for some time, the next few years will see the rise of bold and dark wallpapers too. Inky blues, rich browns, and charcoal greys are the hot looks to go for.

5. Geometric Wallpaper

The retro prints of the 70s look likely to make a major comeback, with geometric wallpapers returning to our living rooms. Ultra-contemporary, these strong, abstract prints are bold, eye-catching, and dramatic – just perfect for the modern home.

6. Mural-Style Wallpaper

Wall murals featuring floral prints are a great way to create a feature wall in your living room. This striking look is set to have a major impact on interior design trends this year, and since wall murals tend to come in both traditional wallpapers and peel-and-stick removable designs, they’re good for homeowners and tenants alike.

7. Checkerboard Wallpaper

If you’ve spent time looking at TikTok videos, you’re bound to have noticed this wallpaper trend. Viral TikToks are dominating the latest home décor designs, and this look is already gaining a lot of momentum. Use colourful checkboard prints to cover your entire room if you’re feeling bold, or just a feature wall to create an eye-catching look.

8. Cottagecore Wallpaper

The Cottagecore interior décor trend has been creeping up on us over the past few years, and it’s set to branch out into wallpapers in the year ahead. A great way to create a rural, dainty look in any room of your home, this delicate floral look is ideal for covering entire spaces thanks to its natural, earthy tones.
