When you want to have wallpaper installed in your home, consider these things. Wallpaper has a longevity over paint. It will outlast paint 8 to 1. It gives your walls that "WOW" you cannot get with paint. Properly installed it will last a long time and can be removed easily when applied over a good primer/sealer. The horror stories I have seen when a contractor or home owner has installed wallpaper over a sub standard primer over my 27 years in the business have given this industry a undeserving bad name. If you are removing old wallpaper before installing new, use a good stripping solution that can be sprayed through a good 1 1/2 gal. pump up garden sprayer. First you will need to strip the face (the printed surface) off before the solution will penetrate the backing. Make sure to cover all electrical plates with duct tape to prevent any water coming in contact with them. Dont be shy with the amount you put into the sprayer and dont be shy on how much you spray on the wall. Fill the sprayer with warm water to help the solution penetrate better. Cover the floor with painters drop cloths or use several towels to absorb the run off. I like to spray several light coats on the wall, waiting about 3 to 5 minutes in between. Let the solution do the work. The backing paper should start to bubble and you can start trying to peel, scrape the backing off. Make sure not to gouge the walls no more that you have to. If the walls were prepared with a good primer/sealer, the backing should come off clean. If they were not, say a prayer because you will most likely damage the wall surface trying to remove the backing.
When you are designing a room, most times you do not have the option of making the room physically larger, but what you can do is add visual space and make the room appear larger than it actually is. Using wallpaper to affect the look of your rooms size is an effective way to use this decorating medium. Light Colored Wallpaper Many of the rules that apply to paint and how it affects the appearance of a room also apply to wallpaper. Light colors will make a room seem larger than it is while dark colors will make a room feel smaller. If you paint a room in light color and keep your furnishings light, the walls will actually appear to recede and the space opens up visually. The same applies to wallpaper. Choose light pastels or neutral colors to visually expand the size of a room.
When you are working in your office and at times when you are completely stressed out, just gazing at one such beautiful picture will relax and unwind you. This is more of a relaxation technique. You can even try this when you have some free time on your hands. Just download a beautiful background for your desktop from any website that you find on the internet, set that as your desktop wallpaper and just look at it for a couple of minutes without doing anything else. You will see to it that your mind becomes blank and thoughtless for a few seconds. After this, when you get back to your work, you will feel fresh and relaxed. Beautiful desktop backgrounds can inspire you in many ways.
Stripping off that old wallpaper Or, "Why did I ever put that up?" Most homes built in the 80s and 90s have wallpaper in them somewhere. I know, because I installed a lot of it in Northwest Arkansas during those years. But, like the hairdos of the 60s, we are ready to put that behind us. So, how do you remove wallpaper? To start with, be assured that what went up can come down. Some of it is just a little more difficult. Do yourself a favor and go to Lowes or The Home Depot and buy a wallpaper steamer.It will cost you about $50.00 to $75.00. This is the secret sauce, the Genie in the Bottle, the magic wand. With this tool, most wallpaper will submit and turn loose the death grip it has on the walls.
If the walls are painted, then you are ready to apply a good primer/sealer that will prepare the surface for the new wallpaper. I like two bands "Zinzer 1-2-3 and" Kilz Premium". there are others on the market that work well and are recommended for wallpaper, but I have used these two for 27 years and have had good success with both. Please note though: These will NOT work on a High shine or oil surface. For those walls you will need to use a product called "Gripper" Most knowledgeable Paint stores can help you with this. Prime the walls and let dry over night. Installing wallpaper is not for everyone. It takes a special skill and lots of patience. That being said, I will try and share my knowledge over the last 27 years to give you the best advice that I can.
(yes wallpaper is made from wood and when wood gets wet, it expands). Take the first sheet and apply it to the line on the wall that you made (while waiting for the wallpaper to relax). Carefully align it next to the pencil mark, starting at the top, leaving about 2 inches wrapped onto the crown or ceiling. Continue to align the edge to the pencil mark down the wall. Use your smoothing tool to smooth out the wallpaper and the bubbles. That care not to treat the wallpaper to aggressive or it will tear. Use your 6 putty knife to hold wallpaper down as you use a razor blade to trim top and bottom. use 1 blade per cut! Take care to wash the wallpaper with a soft sponge and towel dry.
