Looking to instantly transform your space? Then you may want to consider going the wall paper route. In recent times, more people have taken to using wall papers both for domestic and commercial spaces and it's not hard to figure out why.

For one, wall papers have a unique feel which  they give to a space, not to mention the fact that it's a much more convenient option than having to paint walls.

But asides using wall papers on the wall, there are also other creative places and ways they can be used to transform a space. Here are 5 of such ways:

 

  1. On the ceiling: Yes we realise they're called 'wall' papers for a reason, but there's no reason why they can't be used anywhere else. Wall papers can be used on the ceiling to instantly create either a bigger or cosier illusion depending on the design of the wall paper.

  2. On doors: Wall papers can be great on doors as they add a pop of colour and create a different effect.

  3. The stairway: Impress your house guests with your sense of aesthetics by using wall papers on the stairway. Rather than have plain old stairs, cover them in a beautifully patterned wallpaper.

  4. One side of the four walls: Instead of covering up the entire walls in a room with wall papers, you can restrict it to only one side of the room. This way, there's a nice contrast.

  5. On a book shelf: Once again, wall papers can be used in just a corner of a room, this time on a book shelf creating an artistic silhouette in the room.
