Admit it – a mention of wallpaper, and the first place you think of to buy it probably isn’t Wilko.
But it’s honestly worth a look. They’ve got a good range of wallpaper options available, especially online, and their prices are generally affordable (you’ll spot the odd designer wallpaper at a designer price).
The small catch is that some papers come with a minimum order requirement of two rolls. But as it’s always good to ensure patterns and colours match up well, this shouldn’t be too much of an issue.
Here’s a small glimpse into their offerings of funky and affordable contemporary wallpapers.
