Creative Ways to Use Wallpaper

There are so many different ways you can use wallpaper to spruce things up around your house, the possibilities are just about darn near endless! Take a look at some great, unexpected ways of putting wallpaper to use in your home. 

Use wallpaper to line the backs of a boring bookshelf to create a custom looking piece of furniture!

Here, wallpaper is used to create a backslash and to line the upper, open cabinets. I love this look!

Wallpaper isn't just for walls, you know. Mix things up a bit by installing it on the ceiling instead!

Did you know they make wallpaper that looks like bead board?! You can use it to transform a boring end cabinet, use it as a back splash, or wrap it around an entire room! I haven't seen this in person yet but from what I hear, it looks pretty darn good!

I love this boring old file cabinet that was transformed into a sleek piece of office furniture using wallpaper!

Do you have lots of wallpaper samples lying around? Why not frame them to create a gallery of graphic patterns and designs?!

Want the impact of wallpaper, but you want to take it with you when you move? Problem solved!

Here is another example of framed wallpaper. I would LOVE to have an office that looked like this!

Coolest. Clipboards. Ever.

Who says the inside of a closet can't be decorated?! You can use wallpaper to spruce up the inside of an otherwise boring closet!

This wallpaper design mimics a tile pattern and creates a stunning focal point in this large room

I'm not sure how I feel about this application of wallpaper on the fronts of cabinets. However, it takes 'thinking outside of the box' to a new level and I am sure it's a great way to hide otherwise ugly cabinets.

This is a little bit more my cup of tea. What a fun surprise each time you open the cabinet door!

Here, wallpaper is used to create a bulletin board for this chic office space. 

You can use wallpaper to create a custom wainscot, like Kate from Centsational Girl did!

This awkward little nook becomes the star of the room once the wallpaper was installed!

I love this example of using wallpaper in an unexpected way, flanking either sides of a fireplace and installing it on a coordinating painted wall.

Always a favorite of mine - line the insides of a chest of drawers with a fun, graphic wallpaper. It will make you smile every time you open the drawer!
