For those who aren't afraid of a bit of drama, adding graphic wallpaper to small spaces is a great way to make a bold statement. Wallpaper, aside from adding visual interest, can hide bumpy walls or architectural flaws by distracting the eye, and one of the joys of small spaces is that they permit you to be more courageous than in larger areas where you might feel more long-term commitment or, given the cost of designer wallpapers, more financial investment.
As you can see in the photos, entryways and bathrooms are some of the more common small-space areas for wallpaper, but your imagination doesn't have to be limited to them. Think of using wallpaper as a headboard, on an accent wall, or on isolated strips of wall (like on stairs, a bar front, or above kitchen cabinets).
