Custom Wallpaper Ideas for Your Home

In Custom Graphics by ST Graphics

Are you looking for a way to add a unique look to your home? Custom wallpaper is a great way to add your own personal touches to your space in a way that’s very impactful. You can create your own custom wallpaper using graphics specifically chosen and designed by you. However, with unlimited potential for creativity, making a decision can be difficult! Here are some ways you can find inspiration for your custom wallpaper and some clever ways you can utilize it in your home for a one-of-a-kind feature. 

Finding Inspiration 

Maybe you already know exactly what you want to do with your custom wallpaper. If you have a vision in your head, ST Graphics would love to make that dream become a reality! But if you are searching for some inspiration, there are a few places you can go to look. 

In Nature 

Some of the best inspiration comes from being outside in nature. From leafy designs to natural wood patterns, you might be surprised what sparks your imagination by spending just a few moments in the great outdoors. You may decide you want to commit to a vibrant tropical feel with a bright floral pattern or go for a more subtle look with softer earthy tones. 


Another great place to find creative ideas for custom wallpaper designs is online. Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, and Google image searches offer ideas for any style. Whether you’re going for a modern, contemporary, mid-century, or vintage look, you can narrow down the search to fit whatever style you have in mind. Browsing online is a great way to get ideas of what other people have done and see what might be a good option for your space. 

Your Camera Roll

Sometimes all the inspiration you need lies right in the palm of your hand. In this day in age, we’re constantly documenting our lives by snapping photos on our phones. Every once in a while, you might capture an image that deserves to be displayed on a larger scale. Scroll back to your trip to the Amalfi Coast or the mountainous expanse of the Montana wilderness. Pick a few of your favorite shots, and the ST Graphics team can help determine which ones would be best suited as a custom wallpaper.

Where to Use Custom Wallpaper 

One of the many benefits of custom wallpaper is that it’s extremely versatile. You can use it practically anywhere in your home: 

  • Kitchen
  • Bedrooms
  • Bathrooms 
  • Hallways
  • Offices 
  • Basement
  • Living Room
  • Den 
  • Foyer 
  • Laundry Room
  • Nursery 

Not only can it be used in any room of your home, but the applications are nearly endless. 

Accent Walls 

One of the easiest ways to create an accent wall is through custom wallpaper. Whether you want a full-wall design or something to go above a chair rail, wallpaper is the perfect solution to give your space a completely unique look. 


Stairs might be a necessity in a two-story home, but you don’t have to stick with a boring, traditional staircase. Add a pop of color or pattern in between the stairs for a fun and funky look. 


Do you love the look of a kitchen backsplash but don’t want to deal with the mess or expense of tile? Wallpaper can mimic the look of tile for a fraction of the cost. Using wallpaper as a blacksplash can create more dimension and give your kitchen a totally new vibe. 


Clunky wood headboards are a thing of the past. Ditch the traditional style for a more modern look by using wallpaper as a headboard instead. Not only does it take up no space at all, it’s often more affordable. You can even get wallpaper that looks like wood if you want to keep the same look or go with something more creative like overlapping palm branches.
