HOW TO SHOP FOR WALLPAPER?

Have your relevant area measurements on hand so the amount you need to buy (taking into account necessary wastage) can be calculated since wallcoverings are available in many different sizes or rolls. Prices vary depending on design, texture and brand. 

INSTALLATION

To install the wallcovering, you'll want to engage professional help. This ensures that the right adhesive and application techniques are used, and prevents problems like trapped air bubbles or loose sheets.

MAINTENANCE

Good quality wallcoverings can last for about five to seven years for paper, and seven to 10 years for vinyl. Vinyl wallcoverings are sturdier and can withstand humidity and regular wear and tear better. There shouldn’t be drastic temperature changes since rapid expansion and contraction of wallcoverings may lead to air bubbles or shrinkage. To clean your wallcovering, use a soft cloth and a gentle detergent to remove stains. Ensure that you avoid exerting excessive force as it may cause tearing or wrinkles.
