Wallpapering for dummies

By February 2, 2018 Decoration No Comments

Wallpapering is a task that may seem easy to someone who has basic knowledge of home DIY but a lot of the job depends on the type of paper you’re going to put up. When it comes to plain or lining paper it’s relatively straightforward. But for patterned paper, keeping it consistent over the whole surface area is a tricky task, even for those who have experience with the job. When it comes to plain or lining paper it’s relatively straightforward.

What should you consider?

There are a lot of things to consider when wallpapering. The walls’ shape, features in the walls such as door frames and many more, are things that you will need to keep your eye on when wallpapering.

Another is the state of the actual wall. Once you remove the current wallpaper you will notice that it’s either smooth or it has little bumps which will show if you don’t get rid of them.

Is a “reasonable” job good enough?

We take our work very seriously so the word “reasonable” doesn’t even come into our vocabulary.

A professional can make wallpapering look easy, but that is a skill that takes years of training or practice to get good at. Since wallpapering adds the finishing touch to home decorating projects, it’s important that it’s done right. By all means, consider wallpapering a small room yourself to get in some practice first, and keep things simple by using plain paper. If the renovations are any more extensive, however, we always recommend getting in the professionals. To find out more about our wallpapering services, please give us a call.
