Winning Wallpaper



Do you dread wallpaper? I bet it’s not because you think it’s “old fashioned” or out of style or ugly; I bet it’s because you think it’s a giant pain the butt to remove once you decide to refresh the look of your room. Am I right?


In the interior design world wallpaper has always been IN, but today we have thousands upon thousands of choices. All the big wallpaper design houses have gorgeous selections in a myriad of colors, styles, and textures (as do lesser known brands). You can view a comprehensive list of brands here.


How To Properly Prepare Walls for Wallpaper

Your walls should be painted and sized. Sizing is the process of diluting wallpaper paste with water, applying a coat to your wall and allowing it to dry before hanging your paper. Rustoleum sells a similar product they swear by called Shieldz.


There is also a pre-pasted wall liner that works with certain wallpapers.


For Peel & Stick wallpaper your walls should be wiped down with a damp cloth 24 hours prior to installation. There is also this product which is supposed to help.


By following one of the above installation processes your wallpaper will be easy to remove when the wind of change hits you.
