Yes, it is still a very good way to make a focal point in a room.
Using an interesting wallcovering can highlight an important area of a room such as around a fireplace, or create a positive first impression in an entrance hall, for example.
You could paper the wall behind the bed, making a headboard ‘wall’.
It can be a cost-effective and easy way to update a room, but a feature wall in every room might be too much…
Even ‘dyed-in-the-wool’ minimalists can comfortably use wallpaper to add decorative effects to their homes—and if you don’t want to go the whole hog, then make a statement with a stand-out wallpaper on a feature wall.
Bolder patterns can be used as 'statement' walls to add life to a dull room; some can even be framed as artworks.
