If you’ve noticed that wall coverings have staged a quiet but accelerating return, you are not alone. Modest textures and prints of the past have evolved into dramatic effects rivaling tile, stucco and wood to name a few. Wallpaper is a great complement to paint and the coordination between the two is once again an asset.
When using the new generation of wallpaper, you will no longer need to spend gruesome hours peeling off paper in 1/2″ segments – that is unless you are unfortunate enough to be removing wall coverings that were hung a number of years ago. But don’t let that stop you!! Hang in there, get it off, patch your walls and try your hand with the new revolution of wall coverings. Manufacturers and textile/wallpaper designers are changing the way the products are made, generating fabulous new materials, prep methods and adhesives that are high performance and easy to hang. As a result, the design flexibility in never ending. You can decide to change your look in a couple of years, as most new wall coverings that are hung properly require no more than a quick tug at a corner and an entire sheet is down is seconds! Really!!
Have a look at some of the more dramatic papers on the market today. You will find beautiful textures, fabrics in gorgeous colors, glass beads…even feathers! Of course most of these come at a hefty price, but if used sparingly, they can change the overall atmosphere of your room. And the fun part is that is happens so quickly!! An instant transformation!
