Paperhanging never easier
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.
