Paper­hang­ing never eas­ier

Matamata Chronicle - - Building -

Dur­ing the past 10 years we have seen a grow­ing trend to­wards us­ing wall­pa­per as a fea­ture on one wall.

In the past this has meant us­ing a deeper tone, tex­ture or com­ple­men­tary colour to break up the room and give it some in­ter­est. But things are chang­ing. The lat­est trends from Europe are for bold state­ments on one or more walls in the room, us­ing de­signs with large mo­tifs such as leaves, flo­rals and ro­coco medal­lions or retro geo­met­ric pat­terns. The ob­ject is to cre­ate that wow fac­tor – even us­ing two or more co-or­di­nat­ing pat­terns in one room is no longer un­usual.

If space is a fac­tor then just a sin­gle dra­matic strip, strate­gi­cally placed for max­i­mum im­pact, adds a new di­men­sion to any room.

Over the years wall­pa­per­ing has been hard work, in­volv­ing past­ing large strips of pa­per, lots of wait­ing around and the in­evitable bub­bles.

But with the next gen­er­a­tion wall cover­ings now avail­able this is a thing of the past. Tech­nol­ogy has de­vel­oped a non-wo­ven back­ing which means the paste can now be ap­plied di­rectly to the wall leav­ing you with dry pa­per to hang.

This makes the job much eas­ier and quicker, no mess and no wait­ing.

There is no need to pre­cut lengths. You can work straight off the roll and be­cause the non-wo­ven back­ing does not move once it is on the wall there are no peak­ing edges, shrunken seams or bub­bles once it is smoothed into place.

From min­i­mal in­te­ri­ors to the glam­our and lux­ury of today, there is a pa­per to suit ev­ery­one and ev­ery bud­get. Pa­pers range from $60 to $500 a roll for a pat­tern and from as lit­tle as $35 a roll for neu­tral tex­tures.

Easy, fab­u­lous, and in­ex­pen­sive, wall­pa­per lets you add your par­tic­u­lar style to any home.
