If you choose the arrangement of a room with wallpaper, you will have the pleasant surprise to find that the material, patterns, colors and shapes of the wallpaper play a very important role in the radical change of the entire ambient.  A good chosen wallpaper can change the proportion of a room and improve greatly its look.

A light shade wallpaper can make a room looks larger while a wallpaper with large patterns will reduce the space giving it a nice, cozy and warm feeling. Just as with clothes, horizontal stripes give the impression of a longer room and the vertical ones make a room looks higher.
