46 Atmosphere-Changing Wallpaper Ideas
In addition to the choice of wallpaper for your taste, the condition of the room and walls to be applied is also important. For example, its wallpaper can be used for dry areas such as living room, bedroom, corridor. But you may want to choose a wallpaper such as the bathroom, toilet, kitchen that can remove that moisture and can be wiped off with soap, like damp waving vinyl. Also, if your walls are rough, thick embossed, paper or expanded dense wallpapers will look better.
Necessary materials and tools
Ideally, the tools you should have on hand are: scissors or a utility knife, ladder, brush, spatula, sandpaper, rag, plumb line, sponge and bucket to apply glue and smooth while pasting the wallpaper.
Preparing the walls
If your walls are in cement and gypsum plaster, apply satin plaster putty 24 hours beforehand. This process protects the wall and prevents damage to the wall when the wallpaper is removed.
If your walls are painted, wipe the walls with detergent and rinse. Prepare a surface where the glue will adhere better by sanding the glossy painted surfaces.
If you have previously wallpapered walls, defile the existing wallpaper. For this, you will need to use a special wallpaper remover product that you will dilute with hot water. If the wallpaper is dry but cannot be removed, you can also use a steam wallpaper remover.
Make your walls smooth and clean. If there are cracks or holes in your walls, scrape off the spilled plaster and fill the holes with plaster plaster using a spatula. Cover the cracks with adhesive tape and level them with the rest of the wall with satin plaster. After the wall has dried, sand it with very fine sandpaper and remove the dust that has formed. Make sure the wall is completely smooth.
