Why You Need Wallpaper in Your Home

Ballard Designs removable wallpaper

Erase the thought of peeling old wallpaper from your memory. Our removable wallpaper is easy to hang, easy to remove, and seriously stylish. Not only does it bring color and personality to a room, it instantly creates a focal point.

Go For It

We get that installing wallpaper in your room can feel scary, but not to worry, wallpaper has come a long way in recent years. Every one of our wallpaper rolls is easily wipeable (in case you get smudges) and easy to strip off the wall when you’re ready to change your look.

Big Impact in a Small Space

So you’re no longer afraid of commitment, but that doesn’t mean you know where to use it and how to coordinate with your furniture pieces. If you’re a little skittish, we recommend rooms that aren’t heavily used, like the guest bedroom and powder room. Because you aren’t in these spaces every day, you’re less likely to tire of a pattern. Plus, they make a big impact when used in small applications.

 Subtle Texture

Not every wallpaper needs to be dramatic. Sometimes a subtle texture in the background can add that little something special that makes a room shine.

For example, we hung grasscloth wallpaper in this dining room. The pattern of the paper isn’t bold, but that extra layer brings personality to an otherwise traditional space.

Drama Queen

Another reason to use wallpaper? Every home should have a few spaces that feel dramatic and really make a statement.

We designed this dining room to be a focal point by using bold, colorful, floral wallpaper. Reminiscent of a mid-century modern Scandinavian floral print, the vivid blooms evoke feminine elements while creating a dramatic statement as it grows up the wall. The contrast and color makes a big statement and wows everyone that walks through the door.

Classic Patterns

We love ticking stripes so much we decided to put it on wallpaper. You often see the classic stripe on pillows or bedding, but we believe it’s the perfect way to add a little something extra to your walls. It’s also subtle enough to pair with multiple patterns, so don’t be afraid to mix and match!
