Budgeting:
Consider your budget. For a tight budget, consider adding wallpaper to accent walls or get creative! Wallpaper isn’t just for the walls. Lining a bookshelf or even a ceiling may be enough to freshen your rooms. For a hefty budget, start thinking if you want to add wallpaper to one or multiple walls.

Do your research:
First, start researching. Find prints that you love. Even if they’re too expensive to consider, use them as a reference to what you like. After you’ve gathered samples, look for patterns. Do you like florals, bold geometrics, color, nature, textured, toile, chinoiserie? Once you’ve figured out your style, start requesting samples.

Narrow down your samples:
Hang samples on the wall for a day or two; similar to choosing paint, see what the wallpaper will look like in different lighting. Consider other rooms’ perspective. Are you pleased, overwhelmed, or jarred when walking from one room to seeing some of your wallpaper samples?
