Use paint to create a striped effect and achieve the exact width of stripe you want. Go thick, thin, horizontal, vertical or even diagonal. Just remember to always remove the masking tape whilst the last coat is still wet for a clean, crisp line.

Striped wallpaper is a quick and effective way to achieve the striped effect. If you're feeling bold, wallpaper all 4 walls or if you want to take a more subtle approach, choose a feature wall such as a fireplace or alcove to wallpaper instead.

If your sofa is in need of a refresh or your dining space could do with an update, why not reupholster with a striped fabric? Navy and white will add a hint of nautical style to your decor, whilst mini horizontal stripes add a touch of playfulness.
