If you have a passion for interior design, something likely changes in your home on a regular basis. Usually, it stays with moving things around and moving or buying existing or new accessories. My latest discoveries are mostly black accessories; really beautiful forces. But I don’t want to talk about that right now. Wallpaper, that’s what it is about.
A couple of months ago I decided it was time to replace the colour of pure chocolate on the wall by a fresher matte green chalk paint and to wallpaper a bit of the wall. Housemate F. was also up for that. Luckily!
However, neither of us was experienced with wallpaper. But, as it turned out, it’s a lot easier than how it used to go at home. You even don’t need a table anymore.
Nowadays a lot of wallpaper is fleece wallpaper, instead of the old-fashioned paper wallpaper. An advantage of fleece wallpaper is that you paste the wall with ready-to-use wallpaper paste and then you stick the wallpaper onto the wall, very easy and doable for everyone. Especially if you have uni wallpaper, then it’s easy peasy.
But we had a wallpaper with a pattern. And both of us are kind of precise… Then it takes a little bit longer, but the result is there.
Anno 2017 you’ve got a lot of choice as to the kinds of wallpaper. So it isn’t just a choice between uni or pattern. There is also something that’s called natural wall covering. That way you literally bring nature into your home. Think of wooden boards, jute or bamboo. You name it!
But you also see leather on the wall more and more often, in all kinds of colours.
You can also order picture wallpaper, or the so-called wall poster, in more and more places. You can make your interior very personal with that. You can use your own picture(s) for this. But also, the selection of existing picture wallpaper is huge. You can go any way you want with it. You can also go any way you want with your budget. You can go as crazy as you wish. For every budget, there is an array of options. Do pay attention to the fact that you’ll use more wallpaper if you chose a pattern.
