5 Wow-Factor Wallpaper Ideas
Converted warehouse properties often boast high ceilings and bare brickwork or plaster walls, original features that display the building’s industrial heritage and add real character to a home. If you live in a warehouse conversion or loft apartment and want to complement these features – or if you simply want to channel that industrial style in a modern home, there’s an exciting array of contemporary wallpapers and wall murals available to create a instant impact. We took to Pinterest to gather examples of 5 different wallpaper styles which could work with any home decor.
1. Fake it til you make it! Give a heritage warehouse conversion or a new build a raw, industrial make-under with steel or polished concrete effect wallpaper. Layer throughout your home for maximum impact, or simply use against one wall for a mural-like effect. Rebel Walls have some great options that mimic scratched steel and distressed surfaces.

2. Mix things up! Take flooring to the walls for a take-notice topsy turvy effect. Continuing on the faux surface trend, wooden floorboard effects add interest and suggest texture. We love this parquet-inspired wallpaper in a striking chevron pattern from Ella Doran.

3. We think a map mural is a fab way to bring a touch of vintage style into a space. Whether your chosen print is sepia-tinted and nostalgic or brightly coloured and contemporary, experiment with style and scale. You can even personalise your own bespoke map wallpaper over at Wallpapered.com
4. For a look that is both luxe and unique, we’re advocating taking the floor to the wall again. But this time with rugs. These sophisticated new wallpapers from Mineheart replicate baroque and Persian rug patterns. For those who really dare to be different.

5. Be bold and try a style that is inspired by designs of yesteryear. The Steampunk wallpaper by Wall & Deco (pictured below) is an example of how many directions you can go with an industrial aesthetic- it doesn’t have to be a brick wall! Cogs and machinery can give a raw edge to a space, whilst also being vintage and eclectic.
