No More Using Wall Paint

 There are many ways to cultivate walls. Overlaying with wallpaper is just one of them. Many residents of houses and apartments prefer wallpaper over its main competitor, wall paint.


It is indeed interesting to see the various patterns and motifs that standard painting techniques cannot produce. Moreover, wallpaper material has many types. Not only from paper, but it is available in a variety of materials, such as cloth, leather, vinyl, to plant bark and leaves. The choices offered also vary, both in terms of color, texture, pattern, size, and motif, depending on what kind of space concept you want.

So, why are wallpapers so popular among consumers? Here are some reasons:

1. Wallpaper is available in plain colors and motifs (various motifs) and whether or not textured.

2. With the motif on the wallpaper, the stain is more disguised.

3. Installation of wallpaper is more practical than paint. Walls can be directly affixed with wallpaper without having to be primed.

4. Installation of wallpaper does not occupy space. In paint application, there is often paint that drips and stains the floor or other objects.

5. When we are bored with the appearance of space, wallpaper is easier to replace than paint. To change the wallpaper, just peel off the old wallpaper, then paste the new wallpaper.

6. For certain types (made of materials containing vinyl), the surface of the wallpaper is easier to clean. ***

Pay attention to this before installing the wallpaper

IF you are bored with a plain wall display, wallpaper can be an option to get rid of your boredom. Wallpaper from this paper comes in a variety of colors, patterns, and even textures.

In covering the walls with wallpaper, you can do it yourself or with the help of experts. With the help of experts, of course there are more costs that you have to spend. For those of you who want to try applying your own wallpaper, here are some tips that you should understand:

• For those of you who are for the first time installing wallpaper, you must be precise in installing the joints. However, to make it easier for you, try choosing wallpapers with random motifs.

• There are still other advantages that you can get from wallpaper with random patterns. The pattern will help you flatten out the corners that you want to disguise.

• If the wallpaper you choose has a geometric pattern, make sure your walls are not wavy. If your walls are wavy, the pattern will look as if it has shifted.

• Thick textured wallpaper is not the right choice to be applied on the ceiling. This type is too heavy and will likely fall off during installation.

• For those of you who want to change the wallpaper, when installing old wallpaper, cut it and wet it with detergent water. Remove the wallpaper starting from the bottom up. Be careful not to peel off the plaster.

• Before applying adhesive, first read the installation instructions. Some wallpapers come with instructions for applying the adhesive to the wall, not the wallpaper.

• At the time of installation, let the adhesive absorb first on the wallpaper. Give each sheet the same absorption time. Thick wallpaper requires a longer absorption time.

• For vinyl type wallpaper, use a strong anti-fungal adhesive. As for other materials, use the usual adhesive.

• Use a roller to flatten raised paper. For the edges, moisten the area where the edges of the paper will be coated, then press down on the paper with a roller.

• Paper often appears bubbling when mounted on a wall. To fix this, puncture the swollen part with a needle then flatten the paper with a roller.

• One of the problems with the joint is a roll. Open up the rolled part, dab a little adhesive underneath with a cotton swab. Then flatten it again with the roller.

• If you are making horizontal joints, do not cut the paper straight. Cut a little uneven. Then, overlay it with a new sheet to create a barely noticeable joint.

• This may sound trivial but it is not uncommon for people to forget it. Make sure the surface of your wallpaper is correct. Don't put it upside down. ***
