Try This Wallpaper Hack To Instantly Elevate Your IKEA Kallax
To make the open shelves of your IKEA Kallax even more of a focal point, consider putting an accent wall of your favorite wallpaper behind them, as demonstrated on TikTok.
TikTok user @boho_emma shows how adding peel-and-stick wallpaper is an affordable way both renters and homeowners can transform their space without causing damage.
Besides a Kallax or other open-shelving unit, you’ll need some wallpaper. There are many options out there that you can pair with your shelves — some for as low as $8 a roll.
For @boho-emma, using a wallpaper pattern that is black on white contrasted well with her white Kallax unit. A white Kallax can also be paired with sage green or floral wallpaper.
If you have black unit, try pastel flowers on a black background. Any pattern that includes the color of your Kallax in a noticeable way can provide a professional-looking polish.
Even if the color match is slightly off, resist the urge to paint your Kallax since the beauty of peel-and-stick wallpaper is that you can simply remove it if it’s too jarring.
