With the ability to keep your interiors looking sleek over time, geometric wallpapers are easy to use. Whether it’s for a bedroom, living room, dining area, kitchen, or hallway, these patterns are ageless in its simplicity. While nothing says modern quite like a geometric wallpaper pattern, this category has become much more diverse in recent years.
If you think geometric wallpapers are all about uninspired designs and endless rows of boring shapes, you’re in for a surprise. Sure, the wallpapers below are all considered "geometric" in style, but consider how different the mood is, how colours are used, and how detailed the patterns are.
What’s great about geometric wallpaper is its universality and versatility. Like the room shot photo of Pink Reflective Tiles Mural Wallpaper above. This geometric design wallpaper features tiled hexagonal shapes with artistic floral imagery peeking through the empty spaces between tiles. The contrast of colors and light create a holographic and reflective effect. You can choose a geometric pattern with bold colours to dramatize the room for a contemporary look, or use neutral colours with a smaller pattern scale to heighten the sense of elegance.
To explore the style, here are our top 5 picks for geometric wallpaper design!

#5: Intricate Geometric Wallpaper
Blue & Gold Geometric Chain Wallpaper takes the best of geometric wallpaper styles with its entwined geometric shapes, from squares and rectangles, to 3-dimensional hexagons. Colours fade throughout the lines creating an interesting faux-metallic effect. The striped striation background resembles a curtain that provides an elegant backdrop of depth. The simple design and repeating shapes of geometric styles, and the intricately detailed patterns will make a statement into your home with its modern geometric line pattern. This geometric wallpaper features chain outlined with a highly stylized border that is rich in detail.
It’s more elegant than contemporary, making it a great choice for those who want to create a more classic look. If you’re not ready to jump straight into the modern end of geometric styles, this wallpaper is a suitable choice for a more nuanced and subtle design.
#4: Wavy Geometric Wallpaper
"Geometric" doesn’t have to mean straight, sharp edges and angular shapes. It can also be curvy and more linear. Available in bright-funky colours that emphasize luxury and sophistication, Blue & Yellow Transparent Wavy Stripe Wallpaper adds a sense of movement to the room with its dynamic wavy design. Seasoned interior designers will know that horizontal stripes can help make a small room feel wider and more spacious, while vertical stripes adds a sense of height to a room. This transparent stripe wallpaper uses vertical lines that change colors to form a retro stripe design. The soft colors and watercolor effect create an illusory design that looks as if the stripes are transparent as they pass through each other. The wavy design resembles water ripples, creating a peaceful zen atmosphere perfect for a living room or bedroom wallpaper.
Since this wallpaper features both horizontal and vertical elements, it’s a good choice for any room size. Its thin stripe design lends itself well to smaller spaces, such as a powder room or a small bedroom.
#3: Abstract Geometric Wallpaper
Geometric wallpaper doesn’t just include symmetric designs either. Slate & Rose Gold Twisted Clouds Wallpaper features bold linework that twists and curves around to form a large scale geometric pattern resembling abstract clouds or smoke. Heavy metallic curvy lines outline the design, making this an elegant, yet dramatic contemporary wallpaper from its uneven twisted clouds shape that provide an interesting visual element, whether viewed up close or at a distance. Stylish and trendy, this abstract geometric pattern is great for those who aren’t necessarily looking for a traditional geometric style, but still want the iconic repeating motifs that geometric wallpapers are known for.
To create the classic vintage-style look, pair this wallpaper with furniture and décor items that are neutral or earth-toned coloured, like brown and beige. Or, for a more stylized retro appearance, look for navy blue, green, and orange items that will complement the geometric wallpaper and make the room "pop."
#2: Sophisticated Geometric Wallpaper
A geometric wallpaper that’s elegant and luxurious? It’s true! Beige Geometric Metal Digital Wallpaper features geometric design that uses angled linework to form triangles of varying sizes that are connected in a warped pattern. The coloring of this mural gives the effect of metal that has a highly reflective and metallic look creating a vivid and appealing aesthetic that makes an immediate impact upon entering the room.
Because this wallpaper features white with metallic bold colours that makes a dramatic impact on the interior design, it is the most striking geometric wallpaper on the market. Victorian-inspired furniture is a great choice, especially for that elegant look. Since this geometric pattern is quite minimalist, go with bold and solid-colour furniture to create a sense of harmony in the room.
Beige Geometric Metal Digital Wallpaper is an on-trend geometric mural pattern that are perfect for your interior design projects and are sure to create interest and bring sophistication to your space.
