Wallpaper Trends 2021

Wondering what wallpapers are in trend this spring? We’ve got the low-down on the spring styles to bring you into summer 2021 and beyond!

We all know that spring is DIY season, so you might be looking to re-decorate your rooms and wondering what wallpaper to go for.

Wallpaper has been popular again for quite a few years, and it looks like this trend is sticking around. Home-owners are becoming braver and more daring with regards to how they choose to decorate their interiors. However, even if you are not so brave yourself, the beauty is that there is a wallpaper print out there for everyone. From subtle and simplistic to striking and eye-catching, we have the lot!

In addition, wallpaper allows you to really personalise your home in a way that paint often fails to do. It makes your rooms unique and special to you – and it’s a nice feeling knowing that the inside of your house looks the same as no one else’s, right?

This spring’s interior design trends are no exception as the wallpapers that everyone is after are all about bold patterns, uplifting colours and prints that remind you of travel. That’s right, the themes of spring 2021 wallpapers are post-lockdown themed, and preparing and fuelling our excitement to come out of lockdown and move on from it!

A lot of us have not travelled in over a year, so we have prints that remind us of our favourite holiday destinations and tourist spots. As well as that, we have been spending a lot more time outdoors because for months, going for a walk was pretty much the only thing you could do. Therefore, many of us have realised the importance of getting fresh air as we have had more time to go on regular walks. That’s why this spring, we have wallpapers that are designed to incorporate the outdoors with the indoors. These are just a couple of the wallpaper trends that are hot this season; scroll down to see more and some images of the wallpapers to inspire you to take the plunge and try wallpaper, or to replace your old wallpaper with a fresh print.

1. Be Bold

Wallpaper is very much maximalist at the moment, so bright colours and striking designs are stealing the show in 2021. Life's too short for boring interiors, so add some drama to your walls this spring. Here are a few of our favourite prints.

2. Incorporate the outdoors with the indoors

Join millenials and gen z with their love of bright, tropical interiors. I recently redecorated my bedroom and added lots of wood and rattan, linen curtains and lots of plants and it transformed the entire room, creating a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere. These wallpapers will help you to create a breezy, fresh spring vibe.
