I'm after some new paper , my walls are shite but all I can find is paper with mosaics, saucepans, coffee cups or a shocking 1980's design. I'm totally stuck .

I love the orla keily style prints and think they are lovely in kitchens. What colour are your units?

White with a beech worktop. I've got white tiles with a stone / slate trim

Depends on the style you're aiming for. There are quite a few industrial look wallpapers imitating stone, reclaimed wood etc. Or there are more delicate line drawing floral styles. I'd stick to something with a couple of colours to avoid the fussy look.
Browse JL and B&Q web pages.

I want to follow the flow of my dinning room which is a pale coffee colour . There is a glass panel between the 2 rooms. I've looked at B&Q and nothing has taken my fancy.

Are you going to wallpaper everywhere, or just one wall? Do you particularly want a 'kitchen' paper or would anything do? I suppose that depends on how near to the sink/cooker etc you are papering as I guess you'd want a wipeable finish.

Don't put wallpaper too near to where the cooker is especially if it is a gas hob, as it is a fire risk. We were going to get a new freestanding gas cooker and saw that no-one would install it if there was wallpaper anywhere near it. I'm not sure about electric compliance.

Have you looked at bathroom wallpaper ? It has similar properties to kitchen wallpaper. As in doesn't peel as much as other paper with condensation.

Have you thought about putting thick lining paper up and painting that ?

Graham and Brown have a twiggy pattern called Innocence, in a mushroom. They also have some geometric patterns which might fit the bill.

I've got left over paper from the dinning room that I was thinking about putting round the door. It's washable then possibly painting the rest. If I can figure out how to load a photo off my phone I will show

What about brick wallpaper you can get lots of different styles

Don't know if these pictures will load as I'm on my iPhone.
Picture of tiles, wallpaper and paint colour.

The patterned paper will go around the back door, and the rest of the kitchen painted in that colour.

Off to B&Q today how can finding wall paper be such a ball ache?

thenewaveragebear1983 Tue 11-Apr-17 10:04:46

I know. I found b&q' bedroom selection very uninspiring, I found mine in dunelm in the end.

They hadn't updated their website of stock so got there and no paper. Kicked off a bit . Got other wallpaper as I only have today to get it done. Twats

drinkswineoutofamug Thu 20-Apr-17 10:44:29

Sorted. Painting the walls today, hence gap

This is mine, has made such a difference to the plain cream painted walls
