There are also other, more specific and unique types of wallpaper. Some of these are flock wallpaper, which is made with wool to give it a velvety feel and an elegant design; grass cloth wallpaper, which is made with different types of grass, and foil wallpaper, made with various metal foils. The disadvantage of these is that they are difficult to work with, and not very durable. Also, foil wallpaper will crease and bend, and highlight any flaw behind the wall that it is put on. Many people choose to apply wallpaper themselves. Depending upon the type of wallpaper, this can be quite easy. However, most home improvement companies will perform this service if you choose to go that route.
The reason most wallpaper will not strip easily is that nobody wanted to use a primer on the sheet rock before hanging the wallpaper. And some even thought if they used a wall size, that would do the trick. Well guess what, it did the trick alright. Wall size just made it stick even more. So, get the steamer and a 6 inch metal scraper and this should help remove the wallpaper. When you use the steamer, the wallpaper will peel off of the wall down to the sheet rock. Sometimes the front layer of the wallpaper will peel off and then you can soak down the backing that is left. Do this with a pump up sprayer with a wallpaper mixture in it and pull or scrape the backing off. Take your time, and try not to gouge the wall too much. Each time you gouge, you have to fix it. More work.
Retro wallpaper can also change the mood of a contemporary space by making it more fun and homey. Used in a childrens room, it brightens up the décor with color and pattern and can create a warm and friendly space for play and rest. Retro wallpaper works best in a contemporary space when the colors are unified in the space. For example, selecting a color from the wallpaper to use as an accent color in the room helps to tie the room together. Tips for using retro wallpaper: If you dont want to turn your space retro... Furniture of the mid to late 20th century featured polished chrome, molded plastic, and laminate surfaces. Bright and colorful pieces were popular, as well as rounded or asterisk shapes. If you are able to get your hands on these pieces, having a retro themed space may very well work for you. But if you want to keep your space contemporary, retro wallpaper can still look great in a room without all the retro furnishings.
Paper backed or solid sheet vinyl is another very durable type of wallpaper. It is almost like vinyl coated wallpaper, except that it has a layer of pulp or paper on the back. It is still very moisture-resistant and easy to clean, so it works well in any room. Fabric backed vinyl can be a little more tricky. It is usually more durable than coated fabric, but not necessarily as durable as paper backed or solid sheet, or vinyl coated wallpaper. It consists of fabric with vinyl, but the fabric layer is not always coated. So be careful to fully inspect this type of wallpaper before purchasing it for your decorating job.
Congratulation, You just hung your first piece of wallpaper. Continue with the next piece and align it up to the one on the wall, making sure that the pattern matches. Smooth, trim, wash and towel dry. Please note that small bubbles under the wallpaper are common and will disappear when wallpaper is completely dry ( about 2 days). When working around windows and doors, take care not to tear the wallpaper at the corners. I use my scissors to make a relief cut, coming towards the corner of the door or window with my scissors and stopping right on or a little short of the corner. This will allow you to work the sheet around the corner without tearing it. Remember to keep your work table clean of glue. Have several sponges handy to wash the table, your tools, hands and the finished wallpaper. Any glue left on the wallpaper could damage the finished surface over time (several months might go by and then the print starts to flake off the front) Also make sure to clean the ceiling, crown, baseboards, cabinets with clean water and towel dry.
Use a wallpaper stripper solution in the sprayer as mentioned above. NOT VINEGAR, NOT SOAP! You can buy wallpaper stripper in a concentrate. It was created for just such an occasion. It will work better than anything else you might be tempted to use. Sometimes, though rarely,wallpaper just will not strip off. In such an instance, you will have to skim over the top of the wallpaper, particularly, at the seams with sheet rock compound to make it smooth. This is because if you just paint over the wallpaper, you will see the seams. They will just be a different color. After you have stripped the wallpaper or skimmed over it, you will need to texture the walls. This will produce a look that we all desire on our walls. All walls are textured with one type of finish or another. Once this is done, a good coat of primer and 2 coats of paint and you are finished. It is hard work, but the result is a room or home with "up to date" wall finishes.
