Wayfair is an all-things-to-everyone catchall for wallpaper, which makes it a great stop when you’re vetting your options.
You’ll find everything from the super-cheap no-name brands to designer wallpapers for up to 70 percent off, in peel-and-stick to prepasted to traditional non-pasted papers. The site tells you the price per square foot, which helps you comparison shop.
Pro tip: If you’re looking at a designer wallpaper on its own branded website, make sure to check Wayfair too, because you might find it there at a discount. This happens a lot!
The clincher: Wallpops’ designer collaborations, where you can get classic Scalamandré patterns for pennies on the dollar, among many other storied designer options.
More bonuses: You can take a virtual look at your room with the wallpaper installed using their preview tool. Wallpops also has several installation instruction videos, which will help any DIYer pull off a successful installation.
“Anthropologie might tick off all the boxes in terms of uniqueness, selection, beauty, and ease of purchase,” says Los Angeles-based wallpaper queen and interior designer Melanie Thomas of Melanie Thomas Design. While it’s not going to be cheap, Thomas says they “offer unparalleled selection with hard-to-find items.”
With Anthropologie, you’ll find a rotating selection of popular and quirky-boho patterns on the design market.
“What’s even better, you can often return unused rolls,” Thomas says. That’s not the case with some designer paper retailers.
Thomas says when she needs a beautiful custom piece, she turns to Abnormals Anonymous. You’re going to pay more, but you’ll get exactly what you want.
Thomas says each of their offerings can be customized with selected colors and pattern sizes because all the wallpaper is digitally printed. She’s currently using a customized design in a project. It’s a pattern similar to Secret Garden, where the company has swapped out the colors to match her paint selections. Plus, they sent a mockup of the design prior to ordering.
But off-the-rack is awesome at Abnormals Anonymous, too.
“The patterns are beautiful and classic, so they are sure to last a long time,” she says. “These patterns are well-known in the design world, but rest assured, they are not as ubiquitous as the famous Beverly Hills Palm wallpaper.”
If you go the Spoonflower route, buckle up: The site hosts more than a million options. This includes everything from storied Arts and Crafts revivalist William Morris patterns to solo design practitioner’s patterns, the wild and offbeat — Alien Abduction Toile anyone? — and everything in between.
Plus, you can custom-make a design. Most wallpapers come with multiple options, including prepasted removable, peel-and-stick, grasscloth and non-pasted traditional pebble. With Spoonflower, you can get exactly the installation and finish options you want.
“It’s ideal for the interior enthusiast, in part because it offers multiple colorways for each design,” she says.
York Wallcoverings has been in business for more than 125 years, making it a true industry stalwart that balances price, accessibility and quality. The oldest and largest wall covering producer in the country, York runs five printing presses from vintage to digital to make the best final impression on the paper for the intended effect.
Not surprisingly, you’ll find a wide range of styles here, including high-fashion Italian atelier designs from Missoni and colorful folk-art-inspired Rifle Paper Co. They also feature a room visualizer tool to help you imagine the paper in your space. You can return unopened rolls to York, but they’re subject to a 30 percent restocking fee.
Hygge & West
Hygge & West became an early wallpaper trend influencer when its Daydream pattern graced the nurseries of many bloggers’ baby nurseries. Since then, it has grown to offer an intriguing variety of modern to folk-art papers, coveted by most wallpaper design fans.
The shop offers non-pasted, prepasted and peel-and-stick options. It’s easy to shop by room, pattern, designer and more. The design roster includes Oh Joy!, Julia Rothman and Heath Ceramics.
When she’s looking for something other than the usual floral or geometric patterns, Thomas turns to Flavor Paper.
“They have the most unusual selection of patterns, including some scratch-and-sniff options!” she says. “If I were brave, which I am, I would use the Circuit pattern in my next project or even my own home.”
Some papers are traditional, and some are peel-and-stick. Samples are $8 with rolls starting at $200.
“These patterns are very special, though, and that comes with a price tag,” says Thomas.
The Home Depot
The Home Depot offers a surprisingly wide range of wallpaper, with prices to match. They sell peel-and-stick from NuWallpaper and non-pasted traditional paper from York’s collaboration with Rifle Paper Co.
Be forewarned that you can’t always see them in-store first. Make sure to check availability. If you buy online and it’s not what you’re looking for once you see it in person, you can return it.
