In the end, your wallpaper is just the beginning of your revamped room design. Always get samples to hang on the walls so you can see how it could look in the end and how you feel with it. Consider other items too, such as furniture and home lighting, and think about how the whole thing will be pulled together. The more you think ahead the easier the end result is likely to be.
