The advantages of wallpaper.
The walls of your home have the advantage of changing and transforming your space with the help of paint or wallpaper. A dramatic room can instantly be made soft and airy with the application of light pale paint colour. While a room that feels too big can instantly feel cozy with darker wallpaper with a striking pattern. There are pros and cons of using paint or wallpaper. Factors to consider are cost, and versatility to your space. Whichever you choose your walls will benefit from the addition of wallpaper.
Wallpaper comes in unlimited varieties and colours and cost as little or as much as your budget allows. Wallpaper comes in plain lining paper, hand printed and vinyl patterned finishes, giving you the choice of durability, adaptability, or a traditional finish. The lifestyle of your family can make a considerable difference in which finish you select.
Vinyl wallpapers hold up to wear and tear of children and in high traffic areas and many varieties are scrubbable. However wallpaper is applied with an adhesive, therefore there is certain rooms in the house that does not suit wallpaper.

When purchasing your preferred paper, make sure all the rolls are from the same batch, there should be a batch number on the roll. This will ensure that there is no colour difference from one roll to another. Remember to always buy more than you think you need, you can always take spare rolls back, but if you haven’t enough the shop your purchased it from may have sold out or there may be no more rolls with the same batch number, then you have a problem.
To create the ultimate impact to your home or business consider having a printed mural installed.

To give you the full choice we recommend the customer purchase the mural themselves and we will professionally apply it.
Tips when purchasing.
Measure your wall accurately then choose your mural from one of the many sites supplying murals. Make sure the mural your choosing is ‘paste the wall’ (this ensures it will be made of a quality paper). Then enter the dimensions of your wall including an additional 100mm to width and height as walls are not generally exactly square. Wallpaper pastes are not all made the same, so it is advisable to purchase the paste from the same site as the mural. If they do not sell paste they will usually recommend a particular brand. This will ensure that the paste used doesn’t stain or deteriorate the paper.
