Three Must-Know Wallpapering Tips

Tips for Applying WallpaperThis isn’t your grandma’s wallpaper. Gone are the prissy patterns, the difficult application process and the sticky residue that’s left behind when you remove it. Wallpaper in 2018 comes in a variety of trendy patterns and is easy to apply and remove. It’s no wonder that wallpaper is back in a big way!

Here are some tips for choosing the perfect wallpaper and wallpapering your home the right way:

Wallpaper trends

Today’s wallpaper trends include vintage-inspired botanicals, bold geometric patterns and subtle metallics. Just remember that for bigger, brighter patterns, less is often more. Wallpaper an accent wall rather than the entire room. If you go this route, paint the rest of the room in a color that complements the wallpaper on the accent wall.

To DIY or not to DIY

You can install wallpaper yourself (see below), but it’s often more effective to call a pro. Wallpaper installation requires precision and skill, and the pros can often install it affordably.

  • Handy tip: if you have more than one room to wallpaper, schedule them all at once, since a significant chunk of the labor costs are related to setup.
