NinjaPaper Wallpaper Borders: A DIY Can-DO!

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.
