When redecorating a room, pattern and color are important. But there are other factors to consider like cost, ease of installation and cleaning concerns. Self adhesive wallpaper is an option that is less expensive than traditional paper and can be removed cleanly if you decide to change it. It’s also more durable than pre-pasted wallpaper, and can be repositioned on the wall without tearing or leaving residue behind. It’s sometimes referred to as renters wallpaper because it works well in apartments and other temporary living situations.
What is the most trending wallpaper?
Before starting a project with self adhesive wallpaper, read the manufacturer’s instructions carefully to ensure the product adheres to the wall correctly. It’s also a good idea to prepare the surface you’re going to use – filling in cracks and holes, sanding for a smooth surface and wiping down with a damp cloth to remove dust and other debris.
Once you’ve prepared your wall and the paper, measure the height of the room and cut strips of wallpaper to size. It’s a good idea to add a few inches to each measurement so you have plenty of material to work with. This way, you can match up the pattern from strip to strip for a seamless finish.
When installing the wallpaper, start at the top left corner of the room. Unfold the first panel and apply it to the wall, smoothing out any bubbles as you go. Repeat the process on the rest of the walls in the room, and trim excess wallpaper from each edge with a utility knife or scissors.
