Whether you want to spruce up your home or redecorate completely, non-woven wallpaper can really help. There are many myths surrounding it and it can lead to people staying away from the product but many of the ‘facts’ simply aren’t true. Here are three of the more common myths surrounding this type of wallpaper and the truth behind them.
Myth #1: Wallpaper Takes Too Long to Install
Non-woven wallpaper is the most user friendly, easy to install and repair option available. It takes all the hassle out of getting it up on the wall and looks so much better than using a splash of paint. You don’t need to sand down your walls when you use wallpaper, compared to paint, to get that flat and even look. You don’t need multiple coats so you can be finished in no time. The removal is also relatively easy with the right tools.
Myth #2: Wallpaper Looks Tired Quickly
The nonwoven wallcoverings are the latest trend in decorating and there is so much selection that it will be hard for it to look tired quickly. Many of the patterns will last years, with paint needing a retouch every three years or so. You will soon grab the attention of your guests with your stunning wall covers.
Myth #3: Wallpaper Leads to Problems with Mildew
Some wallpaper does but this is not the case with non woven options. The wallpaper is breathable, helping them endure mold and mildew conditions. The only time that the covering may become a problem is when there is water damage to the wall and wallpaper. This is something that you will need to look into – but you would still have the problem even with paint as the damage is usually to the wall!
Avoid having to deal with time consuming paint jobs again. Non-woven wallpaper can leave your home looking fresh and just like new. You won’t need to worry about extra coats of paint or changing the look on a regular basis and no need to worry about mold growing behind it. Save money and time and be proud of your home.
