Redecorating can seem like an expensive and never-ending mission. But what if you could decorate an entire room with one affordable, statement piece?

That's when 3D-effect wallpaper saves the day. Available for as little as £8, the optical illusion wall coverings replicate expensive 3D surfaces like wood, tile, exposed brick, fur or flowers.

Materials like these can often costs thousands of pounds, making the 3D alternative perfect for those wanting to update their home on a budget.

MuralsWallpaper is a website that specialises in the trend. With prices starting at £35 per square metre, they offer everything from rose quartz crystal murals, to what looks like a wall knitted out of Merino wool.

The easy-to-apply rolls can transform even the simplest of rooms and have taken over homes, offices, salons and bars across the country.

But if you don't fancy wallpaper that looks like a giant cardigan, Wayfair offer a more simple selection with a variety of exposed brick wallpapers. This one below will turn your bedroom into a Brooklyn Bridge loft conversion for just £18.56 per square metre.

Wayfair's most popular design is one that mimics a statement flower wall, currently on sale for £7.59 per roll. Each roll covers just over five square metres.

The flat surface is created to look like hundreds individual hand-cut paper flowers and is available in white and blush pink.

Happy customer Hayley Bell from Milton Keynes shared a video of hers on Facebook group DIY on a Budget, saying: "Loving my new dining room wall... it's been taken in the dark so not the best light but I absolutely love this."


The optical illusion was so convincing that people in the group actually thought it was 3D. One said: "That's beautiful. I thought it was handmade paper craft flowers." Another commented: "I thought you'd stuck lots of paper flower to the wall. How cool is that."

Wayfair.co.uk's Resident Style Advisor, Nadia McCowan Hill, spoke to Tyla about the trend: "3D wallpapers are a fantastic option for anyone looking to add character to a space, bringing an instant sense of texture and dimension to more featureless rooms.

"At Wayfair, we've seen a 65 per cent increase in searches for 3D wallpapers in the past month. Shoppers are snapping up exposed brick and raw bark designs, as natural and industrial aesthetics continue to be popular. If you're a fan of a more glam look, a metallic-flecked design might be a better option.

"Create a fun feature wall with your paper pick or install in the recesses that flank a chimney breast for a unique finish that adds instant interest."
