How and Where to buy Wall Papers

Wall Paper in Living Room

Wall coverings are the perfect way to add character, drama and richness to a space. You don’t always have to hang a huge number of things to create a feature wall. A wallpaper is the “easy” and a more “sophisticated” way of adding color, texture and quality!

Dotting the I’s and Crossing the T’s –

• Make sure you choose a pattern that you truly like since it’s going to be there for several years and we would not recommend painting over it in case you outgrow it.

• Do not paper all the walls in a room as it’s never a good idea to over – egg the cake!

• Check the backing (base) of the Wall Covering. There are many kinds available – paper backing, acrylic, fabric (woven or non-woven), cement boards, MDF, ply boards, etc. Each of these differs in weight, quality standards and application; so look for the one that suits your needs.

• Wall Coverings are generally available in standard sized rolls (57 sq. ft.). You must measure the walls before the process starts. Find out the total square footage and compare it with the size available of the wall covering.

• While calculating the amount of paper you need, it’s always better to allow room for errors, aligning of the pattern and trimming. We generally take a 15-20% margin.

• Don’t randomly choose the focal wall. It should be the one that catches your eyes instantly. Also, it’s advisable that you cover a normal sized wall with less cutouts as higher the number of openings in the wall, more will be the wastage.

• Wallpaper installation requires preparation of the wall. To ensure a flawless installation, any nicks and holes have to be patched and smoothened. The walls are then primed and a flat base layer is added.

• In case you want a patterned wall covering, just make sure that the scale of the pattern goes with that of the room or else it will start straining your eyes!

• Wall covering not only involves choosing the right pattern and proper installation; but also requires it to be styled such that it adds a statement to the space.

 Offering a striking finish by bordering the edges using beading, decorative strips, grooves, etc.
 Using wallpaper background for niches, shelves, kitchen cabinets.
 Putting it on the risers of the stairs.
