have carried out numerous paperhanging projects around Sydney over the years, and although paperhanging isn’t as popular as it used to be it is making a come back, with many modern, classic, murals and retro designs becoming trendy.
From eye-catching patterns to demure prints, wallpaper has greatly returned to favour in recent years bringing with it an endless array of designs which will add style to any space. Whilst the idea of a vibrant feature wall or even an entire room wallpapered in your favourite pattern appeals to many, the task itself can be daunting and requires extreme care and consideration before you even pick up the pasting brush. Our buying and hanging guide has been designed to make the process just that little bit simpler and to provide insight into the world of wallpapering.
BEFORE YOU EVEN GET CLOSE TO HANGING THE WALLPAPER YOU FIRST NEED TO:
determine the most suitable type for your needs. The room in which the wallpaper will be hung greatly affects which type should be chosen, bathrooms and kitchens for example require different types as opposed to those suitable for living rooms and bedrooms.
HOW MUCH WALLPAPER WILL I NEED?
Determining how much wallpaper your room requires can be a tricky task and one that needs to factor in the match of the design, as if the pattern requires every other length to be half dropped you will require more rolls than with wallpaper of a straight match design. To save you testing your mathematical skills you will find a wallpaper calculator on each individual design’s page, which will take into account its match and the room size.
Wallpaper can be used in any situation, providing you use the correct paper, vinyls are better suited to kitchens, and bathrooms where steam is a consideration.On walls where there are a lot of surface imperfections, embossed papers such as anaglypta, superglypta, and woodchip are used to help hide these imperfections and are painted over.
