A rustic cabin living room may look odd with wallpaper or ceramic tile, but using thin weathered boards as wall covering suits the style well. The trend of using what many would think of as flooring as covering has become quite popular.

Fabric has been used as a wall covering for centuries, but it is getting a new boost in the home style world as designers and homeowners experiment with more than just silk or damask. Imagine a boy’s bedroom with a collage of cutout denim squares on an accent wall. Or picture a kitchen with burlap sacking in the pantry. Creative wall covering ideas exist in any style.

Three dimensional covering options are also becoming much more popular. These can include anything from wicker weave to bas relief carved paneling and artistic scrolled paper or wood effects. Wall covering has come a long way from simple paper or paint.
