White walls or woodchip wallpaper, both today give way more and more modern wallpaper creations. Whether with a romantic floral pattern, classic striped look or a fancy photo print walls with wallpaper are trendy. This may also be because wallpaper can quickly and easily give a room a completely new face. Within hours, the wallpaper is on the wall and lets its surroundings appear in a completely new light. Therefore, hardly anyone shies away from a change of wallpaper these days. Wallpapering has become child’s play thanks to new products, and the wallpaper has become a fashion accessory that is often exchanged every now and then.

Do not be afraid of patterns

Large-scale patterns spread unrest and are not for small spaces – a prejudice that persists. If you fall in love with a medallion motif in XXL format, you like this pattern and like to surround yourself with it, no matter if the room is big or small. Trust your feeling and taste. Anyone who is still unsure, buys a sample strip, pinned it to the wall and lets the pattern simply take effect for several days. You have to be careful with patterned wallpaper only when cutting and gluing, because they have a rapport. On the wallpaper roll is specified how to apply the individual paths, so that the pattern does not slip on the wall surface.

Non-woven wallpaper makes wallpapering a breeze

Washable vinyl wallpaper, embossed textured wallpaper or metallic surfaces at wallpaper are all results of new techniques and developments. But probably the most successful market launch of recent years is the non-woven wallpaper.

The carrier material of the wallpaper consists of a moisture-resistant and stable synthetic fiber fleece. It is almost tear-resistant and can easily bridge and conceal bumps and cracks on walls. In addition, the wallpaper made of fleece can be very easily brought to the wall. Paper wallpapers, on the other hand, tend to tear quickly and must first be painstakingly soaked in paste.

To apply the non-woven wallpaper to the wall, simply apply a non-stick paste with a puff and apply it evenly to the wall. The wallpaper can then be created directly from the roll on the wall and pressed bubble-free. Finally, cut off the supernatant on the ground along a ruler or spatula.
