Bedroom wallpaper has gone from strength to strength in the last few years, and there is every conceivable design available to suit your style. From cityscapes to graphic prints, traditional eye-catching florals of all sizes to textures so real you have to look twice.

It really is the perfect easy bedroom update, that you can DIY in just a weekend, making it super affordable too. Just remember that if you’re not papering all the walls, tie your scheme together by choosing a paint shade that’s complements the wallpaper you’ve chosen, then the result will be cohesive. You can find loads more bedroom ideas over in our gallery so be sure to check that out too. 

1. Go for an abstract wallpaper print for a teen's bedroom

For those of you who love the retro feel this Mountain Sunrise wallpaper is for you! Bold and beautiful, it’s inspired by the scenic peaks and fells of Great Britain and you can see the sun peeking out. Team with black accessories and pops of yellow to bring the wallpaper shades into your bedroom with you. 

We reckon this would be a fab print for a teen's bedroom, a great neutral colour scheme with just a few brighter pop that they (hopefully) won't tire of too quickly. For more teen bedroom ideas head to our feature. 

2. Create a cosy bedroom with wood effect wallpaper

Who wouldn’t love to wake up in a wood cabin in the depths of a forest? This calming bedroom by Sainsbury’s has a lovely rustic feel and the bare board panels behind the bed look perfect against their Ginko bedding set. 

But where’s the wallpaper we hear you cry? There are some very clever people who have designed wallpaper that mimics this kind of look, so you can recreate this in your bedroom! Our favourite similar prints are this wood panel pattern faux effect textured mural wallpaper and this distressed driftwood wallpaper that has a more authentic look.

3. After calming bedroom wallpaper ideas? Go for nature prints

How gorgeous is this delicate tree print from Next? This calming woodland grove scene has hints of gold in it so that’s definitely an idea for accessories - a lovely gold bed frame, gold cushions or lamp would look a treat in a bedroom papered with this design. It’s also a ‘paste the wall’ wallpaper which makes is super easy to put up.

4. Choose a large scale pattern for more of an impact

Sometimes, colour doesn’t need to be the ‘thing’, the pattern can be the star of the show instead - which is the case with this large Helleborus motif design from Farrow & Ball. It has a beautiful linear quality that is eye-catching in its neutral colourway. These shades are easy to accessorise especially if you love off-whites and textures. Sheepskin throws on the bed, warm wood furniture and hints of fresh green will all be great choices.

5. Choose a traditional but bright bedroom wallpaper

This Pavona Sylvie design is a beautiful example of a late 19th century wallpaper printing, so if you have a period property and want to recreate the rooms then this is the kind of design to look for. It is flamboyant and vibrant, and yes, on the pricier end of the scale, but these wallpapers can be used sparingly to help your budget if you have one. This design papered on one wall, alcoves or a fireplace will still look striking and you can paint the other walls in a tone from the print.
