Choosing wallpaper for the kitchen

The wallpaper in my kitchen has seen better days. I am therefore looking at getting new wallpaper to exchange it with and am presently in the process of choosing wallpaper for the kitchen.

The present wallpaper was put up in 2003 when the flat was built. Looking close on it you see what I mean when I say it has seen better times. I actually like the pattern on it, but the colors have faded and are gone in places. It also has various damages here and there. And it is dirty.

I only have two walls to wallpaper. The ones with the windows. And the second wall, the one above where the bookcase is, is “short” because the kitchen has a sloping roof at that side. So I do not need all that much wallpaper to renew those two walls. 2 or 3 rolls will be enough I think (haven’t measured the walls yet). The work I’ll do myself. I’ve wallpapered walls before.

So I’ve been looking at various wallpaper for the kitchen. Mainly at Boråstapeter and Sandbergs. There are other places of course, but these have some of the wallpapers I’ve been looking at for some time, of the style I want in the kitchen. In the rest of the flat I have painted walls (painted one color onto the wallpaper). Bedroom is dark blue, livingroom is light grey, my two hallways are dark grey. In the kitchen I want color and patterns. I think that would suit it.

Below are the ones I’ve been looking at. I’ve ordered samples (quite cheap) from both sources and expect to receive the samples by next week.

FLORA white from Sandbergs.

And the above is FLORA white from Sandbergs. What is the difference between that one and the other Flora from Boråstapeter? Is it the same? No, I don’t think so. But they are VERY similar.

RÄVDUNGE from Boråstapeter

RÄVDUNGE from Boråstapeter is also a nice one… and colorful.
