Over the last few years, there have been some major advances in wallpaper. These advances have been good for the environment and the people trying to use it. There are many types of wallpaper that are easy to install and remove without damaging the walls.
The latest trend for decorating walls is using nonwoven wallpaper. It doesn’t matter if you are doing it yourself or hiring someone, this is perfect. The wallpaper is made with synthetic and natural fibers all blended together, which means that it is breathable and washable. Most of the fibers come from general household products including coffee filters, gauze and tea bags.
The fact that the wallpaper is breathable helps to eliminate the problem of mildew and mold since the vapors aren’t locked between the wall and the paper. It is great for bathrooms and kitchens.
Another advantage comes from the fact that it is tear-resistant, which makes it much easier to remove and install.
When you install wallpaper yourself, you want it to take as little time as possible. Nonwoven options are perfect for this, while being eco-friendly. These options are easy to use and require very little effort to get on the walls perfectly.
The wallpaper will not change in size or shape when on the wall, unlike other options. You won’t need to allow it to relax before using it so you can get the job completely sooner. With just a little paste, the wallpaper will go up without the need for the edges to overlap.
It is also possible to re-position nonwoven wallcovering once up. It will not tear so you can remove it and place it wherever you want quite easily and quickly. The seams on the wallpaper are very easy to work with and will just disappear over time.
Unlike other types of wallpaper, there is no damage to the wall after removing nonwoven options. There is no need to use special tools, even once the paste is dry. By not tearing, you will have the full sheets to reuse if you wish or place on the walls differently.
It is very easy to apply the pre-pasted wallpaper by adding water. This activates the adhesive properties on the back to stick it on the wall. You could also use a light weight adhesive although this isn't necessary. There are unpasted options too, which just need some paste to stick to the wall. Many professionals use diluted adhesive or the pre-pasted options with a clear, non-staining adhesive on the un-pasted options.
When there is damage to wallpaper, it is extremely easy to repair it. You just need to take a piece that is similar to the pattern and cut it so it is a little larger than the area that has been damaged.
Carefully matching the pattern, place the piece over the damaged part of the paper. Now cut through the layers of wallpaper with a sharp and broad knife.
Take out the excess pieces of wallpaper and place the new piece within the gap. Smooth down and then wash to get it in place.
