Zoning a space with wallpaper

Using wallpaper to zone a space

Are you creating a special area in your home for a particular activity – such as a workspace? A clever and creative idea is using wallpaper to clearly define the area.

If you’ve not thought about this before, it’s not too tricky to do and the results are really effective.



Vinyl wallpaper is a good choice if you’re not a wallpaper-hanging pro and you’re doing the job yourself. They are the easiest papers to hang, keep clean and remove. Give it a go. It’s not as tricky as it seems, and by starting off papering a small area like this is good way to kick-start your confidence.

Bear in mind, it’s best not to choose a shiny paper if your walls are bumpy as this will accentuate any imperfections. A texture wallpaper would be ideal here.

Remember, the featured area is intended to act as a zone, so limit the wall art and shelving so it’s not hidden from view.

You’ll be more likely to make use of the space, and get that important work done, if you feel happy and proud of your new, cool workspace. So get started!
