The classic monotonous solution when creating a bedroom interior will always remain in demand. But if there is a desire to come up with a design for a room in fashionable and stylish colors, then you can stop at such an option as creating a bedroom interior with two types of wallpaper.
The market of finishing materials today offers an incredible selection of wallpapers of all shades and textures. Selecting them exactly for your interior, they coordinate the color combination, the style of the room, its dimensions. Even inexpensive budget options, correctly and correctly selected, will turn an ordinary bedroom into an original and stylish room. Solving at the same time, in passing, many such tasks as the visual expansion of space, zoning, focusing on the right places of the room.
Factors affecting the selection of two types of wallpaper
In order for the result of wallpaper pasting to look natural and harmonious, it is necessary to pay attention to a number of parameters.
First, the choice of the type of wallpaper is often dictated by such a characteristic of the room as the height of the ceiling. With parameters less than 2.5 m, it is customary to take lighter shades that have a fine pattern. It will look good wallpaper without a hard texture. With very low ceilings, a light base and vertically arranged stripes will visually stretch the room upwards. To do this, take a combined wallpaper with a central pattern or two canvases, suitable for the main color.
For rooms with high ceilings (from 3 m) choose a wallpaper with a large clear pattern in the companions, as in the photo. This design technique is also used: the selection of walls using horizontal stripes of different colors.
Secondly, at registration we look at the area and geometry of the bedroom. In a large room, rich tones are used. The variant with a dark design or with the addition of a light large pattern to it will be appropriate here. Small rooms in classic design require light surfaces. But modern fashion and style does not limit the choice of colors.
Combining the wallpaper will cope with such a problem as a long and narrow room. It will be possible to visually correct his design, if the walls are arranged in a light tone along the perimeter width, and in part it must go to adjacent, longer surfaces. This technique will make the room compact.
Thirdly, when choosing two types of wallpaper in the bedroom interior, you need to be attentive with the texture and width of the canvases. If the connection of adjacent pieces occurs along the wall, their dissimilarity will be too noticeable. The way out of the situation will be to design the opposite surfaces with excellent types of wallpaper, and to dock them better in the corners, which will make the difference in the canvases imperceptible.
Reasons to use wallpaper in two colors
Companion wallpaper today is considered a sign of style. Often this design bedrooms choose natures young and creative. But there are cases when it is necessary for a number of reasons, and monochromatic surfaces can not cope with existing problems:
- Zoning In the interior of the bedroom wallpaper of two types help to visually highlight certain areas, for example, they allocate a small area for a workplace or a place to play, if it is a child, as in the photo. In the room for the rest of two boys or girls, the walls are designed in such a way that they create for each child a separate personal space.
- Concealing imperfections or accentuation. Combined wallpaper with a large pattern and embossed texture distract vision from the flaws of walls and ceilings, masking uneven surfaces or corners. Photowall-paper hiding defective walls and visually expanding the space becomes an ideal option. For irregular corners, the following recommendation is appropriate: wallpaper of different colors do not join at the very corner, but departing 15 centimeters from one of the walls. To do this, spend a straight vertical line, which will become the border of two colors. In addition, the emphasis will help highlight the desired part of the room. For example, the wall at the head of the bed looks very impressive with wallpaper of large carpet drawings.
- Visual expansion of space. This method is often resorted to, if it is necessary to visually enlarge a small room. It is also suitable for the reverse situation, when an overly large bedroom needs to be made more comfortable and cozy. The design with low ceilings will transform the wallpaper of two colors, if one is stuck on the walls with approach to the other, the ceiling of 15–20 cm.
- Saving. Combining the wallpaper of two types at their different cost, you can get a little money saving.
Types of wallpaper for the combination in the design of the bedroom
For the bedroom, different types of wallpaper are used, but it is more rational to glue the walls with such: paper, non-woven, vinyl or fabric-based materials. Each of them has its advantages and disadvantages, but, in addition, a combination between them is taken into account, if you want to use two independent species at once. Wallpapers have different lifespan, what is required to consider when using them, and also differ in the width and thickness of the rolls.
Manufacturers of finishing materials offer many ready-made collections of wallpaper satellites or as they are called, wallpaper partners.
But in the design of the bedroom, the room in which a person spends a third of his life, you want to choose wallpaper from environmentally friendly materials. Toxic surfaces that emit many harmful substances into the air are not allowed in this room.
Paper, vinyl and non-woven materials are well combined with each other. But when using different types of overhead curbs and moldings are not always suitable. And sock these panels better in the corners.
It is not recommended to select combinations of materials on a textile basis. It is difficult to find partners for such wallpapers because they have the following characteristics: noise and heat insulation, aesthetics, ecological cleanliness. And although they look very noble and original, but according to the texture they are very thin, which is difficult to hide when joining with other types of materials. Also have a higher price.
Especially for combining created wallpaper. It is only necessary to choose the right design of the main tone of the room so that the design harmoniously and stylishly blends into the interior.
The rules for choosing the color palette of the wallpaper of two types

And this part of the room is made out so as not to fall into the field of view while falling asleep. This may be a wall next to the bed, a door zone.
