Nothing adds color and pattern to a bedroom like beautiful wallpaper. But the truth is many people are a little intimidated by the idea because they think wallpaper costs too much per square foot and is nearly impossible to install without a professional. If that is the case for you, we got some great news.

These days wallpaper comes in a vast range of styles for both small and big budgets. There is also a wide selection of options designed for do-it-yourself installation. For example, peel and stick wallpaper, which is perfect for rental bedrooms, is a snap to both hang and remove. To help you refresh your space, we collected our favorite wallpaper decorating ideas for bedrooms.
