So, to help you out, we have put together ideas in which wallpaper plays a unique role. In these thoughtful ideas, wallpaper acts as the scene-stealer, creating a harmonious blend of eccentricity and quirkiness. From sprucing up a piece of furniture to adding zing to a dull wall, these 8 wallpaper ideas will add glamour to your home in no time!
1. Dress up an old piece of furniture
Who said wallpaper always has to go on a wall? Create a striking statement in your home by covering an ordinary wooden chair with wallpaper. This is a fantastic way to upgrade any old piece that might otherwise have ended up in the storeroom, doing nothing, but collecting dust.

Covering up a door with wallpaper is an excellent way to add shine to your decor and put up something that is truly refreshing on the eyes.

5. Add architectural details
Nothing makes a home more design-envy than striking architectural details like an interesting ceiling, or even a charming stained-glass window.
