Wallpaper is an incredibly popular form of home decor because it allows people to personalise their interior decorations in a range of amazing ways. The paper can feature all kinds of beautiful patterns and textures that would be impossible to create with paint alone. Wallpaper can even help to make spaces feel warmer and more luxurious because it will cover the colder substrate material.
Hanging wallpaper effectively can be challenging at times, especially if the walls are in bad condition or if you have selected complex patterns that need to be lined up carefully. With a little work and preparation, these problems can be overcome and you can enjoy stylish, neatly papered walls. Firstly, the walls need to be prepared, including removing old paper and repairing any damage to the substrate to make sure the surface is smooth. Next it is important to look at the layout of the room in order to plan the pattern and keep it consistent.
A great tip for lining up patterns effectively is to cut each strip on the repeat. Remember to cut each sheet so that it is around four inches longer than the wall. This will allows two inches at the top and bottom of the sheet so it can be trimmed to achieve a perfect fit for the wall. The sheets need to be lined up when put on the wall so the same amount can be cut off the top and bottom of each one to maintain the pattern.
If you want your wallpaper to have the perfect finish, you can always hire an experienced decorator to do the job for you. The investment can really pay off, giving you decor you will enjoy for many years to come and that you will be proud to show off to your visitors.
