Wallpaper craze…

Gone are the days of borders and animal print wallpaper. Today’s wallpaper trend is chic and modern and a fantastic way to inexpensively update your walls. And there is a plethora of options…think tropical patterns, pastel shades, geometric patterns, vintage, retro, floral, metallic and even patterns that replicate stone and reclaimed wood. The choices are endless and will most certainly add character to any room. If you plan on DIYing it, know these tips….

There are specific adhesives for specific paper and it’s important to know the difference between paper and vinyl so check the label!

Vinyl is great for areas with moisture such as bathrooms and kitchens and woven papers or fabrics are best for dry areas such as bedrooms and living rooms.

Round your measurements when purchasing wallpaper…always add two to four more rolls for waste and overages.

Have a tape measure, pencil, utility knife, level and the paper hanging brush near by. And lastly, enjoy!
