3. Wonderful Wallpaper

Next to updating your wood flooring, changing the paint color in a room is one of the best ways to transform a room. But instead of traditional paint, why not consider wallpaper. Wallpaper can be simple, romantic, or to appease point # 1 … nice and contemporary. You can make it subtle and charming, or give a room a pop of color.
