For those of us who are looking to use patterns- but not on a whole entire wall -to punch up a room, a border is the perfect decorating solution. Borders can bring a line of focus to the top of the room without distracting from the room’s entirety.
To make things easier, use a leveler or ruler to make sure you have a straight line. Use chalk or pencil to make your markings when figuring out where exactly to place your border. If you have a guide, like crown molding, your job is even easier! NinjaPaper Removable Wallpaper is self-adhesive and comes pre-cut to custom fit your room so you can look like a DIY genius in no-time!
A Border Can Cute-ify a Kid’s Room
Not every parent or child wants a gender-specific colored room (pink for Susie or blue for Bobby!) or to completely take a theme and go crazy (Hot Wheels everywhere!). Borders can bring a subtle theme forward or unify a room’s color palette without hurting the eyes. Houzz gives some great examples of wallpaper borders in kids rooms that exemplify this aesthetic. Here a girl’s room has hints of pink with a fun polka dot pattern bordering her walls. NinjaPaper has a similar take on a polka dot pattern that uses wallpaper borders as a fun way to add color and spunk.
Wallpaper Borders Can Open Up a Bathroom
Small spaces can look overwhelmed if using an all over pattern. Wallpaper borders help bring the focal point to the height of the room without distracting the eye. A great example is this black and white bathroom using a baroque style wallpaper to work with the original moldings of the house. NinjaPaper uses the Black Baroque pattern to border a modern bathroom that has a black and orange color theme. It draws the eye up without making the space seem smaller.
