If you’re looking for a material that could unify and bring uniqueness into your home interior at the same time, then wallpapers are what you need.

To make it work, experts recommend separating papered and non-papered parts of the wall with architectural moldings like chair rails.
3. Use Two Wallpapers on the Same Wall
