WHY WE LOVE WALLPAPER
Even though it’s Sunday and it’s getting to be around the time where you want to just sit back, watch some TV, have dinner, and then rest for the remainder of the day - here at MegMade, we’re kind of always going with ideas and furniture makeovers, no matter the time! I was just thinking about how wallpaper is such an easy way to update a space , and I thought, you know what - I want to share with you all just why! If you know us, you know our love for wallpaper - and one of the easiest ways to play with a room or a piece of furniture, especially if it’s a piece of furniture that may have some wear and tear or even some scratches - wallpaper can be the perfect way to make some changes!

PATTERNS FOR DAYS
One of the easiest ways to change a space up, or change the demeanor of a piece of furniture is simply by incorporating some pattern! And wallpaper comes in so so so many different aesthetics and patterns. Sometimes it’s hard to just full on add pattern to a wall, or other big element of your room, but adding wallpaper to your furniture can be an easy transition, to liven things up a bit! Adding wallpaper to the outside of a piece of furniture, whether its the border of a book shelf, or the drawers of a dresser, or the backing to a curio cabinet - going bold with a pattern, can not only help recreate your space, but give life back to a piece of furniture that may have otherwise been overlooked!
One thing that is so hard with changing a space, is the mess that comes with it! Painting an entire room, or even a piece of furniture, although it is ALWAYS worth it in the long run, can truly be messy - especially if you’re not used to that kind of thing. If you want a relatively lower effort, mess-free change, try going with some wallpaper! It’s not that it’s the absolute easiest thing to do, but, when you get the hang of it, the pros surely outweigh the cons!
Another amazing thing about wallpaper, especially if you have dogs or kiddos around, is that it is so durable! They are usually scrubbable, and also, protect the walls from damage, scratches, and all the other things that can happen! Plus, wallpaper can easily last up to 15 + years without having to touch it up!
Sometimes our homes aren’t necessarily missing color or pattern - but it’s missing some texture! Let me tell you guys, texture is UNDERRATED! Texture adds visible weight, light or heavy, to the room, and the more texture - the more cozy the room looks! It’s like the difference between a plain polyester pillow, and a cotton! Although both may be similar, that extra feeling the cotton brings, can lighten the space, and make it seem airy, whereas a velvet pillow, may bring in some weight! It’s the same with the walls, adding some wallpaper into the space can change the overall “weight” of the room, and can be the difference of the room feeling full and cozy, to flat and uninviting! Wallpaper is one of the EASIEST ways to add instant texture to a space!
Apart from texture and pattern wallpaper is versatile because of it’s many uses. Of course, primarily used for the wall - but if we think outside the box, adding it to furniture, to table tops, to cabinetry, as a back-splash, as wall art with molding around like a frame, and even on the floor!
