wallpapering - How to enjoy wallpapering success and avoid the perils!Wallpaper continues to be a popular choice for decorating. It can add instant colour and impact to your home décor. However, with so many designs and wallpaper trends available how do you choose the one that is right for you? Whether you want to add an understated design for subtle interest or a bold statement to give your room the wow factor, we have the latest looks to inspire you.

When thinking of wallpapering a room, there are many hidden difficulties that can cost you additional time and money. Therefore, why not consider leaving your wallpapering to our highly-trained team at Panache Painting & Decorating.

Let’s look at a few practical steps you need to consider when planning a DIY wallpapering project.


  • Firstly, preparation is key and is generally more complex than preparing a wall for painting. Dents and other irregularities still need to be filled, and a high level of expertise is required to ensure these fixes are not visible on the finished wallpapered wall. In the case of re-wallpapering, the process is much the same, but additional time will be required to strip the existing paper from the wall, which is a time-consuming job in itself.
  • How does one cope with a room that’s not perfectly square? Let’s face it – rooms may have walls that lean inwards (or outwards) slightly: due to timber shrinkage, shifting foundations, or simple builders’ error. And, in some cases the corner is not perfectly perpendicular to the floor.
  • Wallpaper patterns can be so unforgiving too, however we know the techniques necessary to make wallpaper look square in a non-squared room so that the first piece of paper laid allows the rest to be positioned for room balance and style.
  • Let’s not forget the importance of a professional finish at the base of the wall, working around wall fixtures, and planning of the pattern placement right to the last strip!

As you can see there is a lot to consider when it comes to wallpapering, however a professional finish can really add style, texture and new energy to your room. Our friendly team of experts at Panache Painting & Decorating Services is here to take the hassle out of the job, save you time and deliver a professional quality finish.
