Why Should You Wallpaper?

It is a good way to start designing as it can be an anchor for the space and really help define the theme of the room. What many people don’t know is that it also adds to the longevity and durability of your walls. You can start small with a powder room or a nook, but you’ll probably get hooked!

How Do You Know Which Wall to Wallpaper? 

When deciding which wall to wallpaper, choose the wall you first see when you walk into the room. Choose a full wall rather than one with windows for the most impact. If you decide to wallpaper around windows, be mindful of pattern choice as both elements can compete for attention and affect your feature wall's overall symmetry.

Dose the Type of Wallpaper Vary Based on the Room?

Yes, when looking at wallpapers for spaces that have high humidity, such as bathrooms, you are going to want to select a vinyl wallpaper. Look for vinyl wallpaper that is designed specifically for bathrooms or outdoors as these work best in high humidity and moisture locations.  

What is the Best Way to Clean Wallpaper?

If your wallpaper requires cleaning always start by dusting the wallpaper. Create a gentle cleaning solution of dish soap and warm water and gently dab the affected area with a lint-free cloth to be sure you do not remove the print or fade the colour.
