Creating a new look for your home or business has never been easier with the use of wallpaper murals. Wallpaper murals can make a dramatic change to the overall appearance of your room and bringing to life the most boring and tiring spaces to life. Wallpaper Murals are not a thing to go out of fashion as the designs are always in keeping with the current trends and let’s face it what else can you do apart from paint and create the bog standard feature wall normally a standard run of the mill wallpaper around the chimney brest. Well those days have gone people’s ideas are changing and they are going more bolder and creative with there decorating themes so why not join them.
Wallpaper Murals On A Roll Or Square Panels…Which One’s Best?
There are many places that sell wallpaper murals and the quality between many of them is vast. There are many copies out there and variations too on the main selling auction sites without mentioning any names and the quality are very poor on most of them so if it’s cheap….That’s why! It’s like hanging tracing paper to the wall.
The quality of the paper is key to a good wallpaper mural and the premium wallpapers come on a roll like standard wallpaper and not in square panels believe me there is a massive difference in quality. We have heard many times of murals shrinking and fading within a month of been put up…poor quality paper and Ink comes to mind you pay for what you get so spend a little bit extra and get a good quality wallpaper mural from the start.
A good top quality wallpaper mural depending on the size you require can range from £120 to £350 for a large size mural of around 400cm wide which is extremely large, there are some even larger ones available. Quality is everything in a wallpaper mural from the vivid depth of the color to the design…you get what you pay for and in most instances it’s true.
Most top quality wallpaper murals are on non-woven paper which makes it perfect for hanging for one main reason you paste the wall first not like standard wallpapers having said that most manufacturers are going the non-woven way now. The idea of pasting the wall first is the paper does not get wet with paste as you probably are aware if you have hung wallpaper before it tears very easily and also when you are trimming off edges with a sharp knife it tends to drag and then leaves you with untidy and jagged edges whereas with the non-woven paper it’s only the areas which are pasted where the paper is going to stick leaving the paper whats left to be trimmed dry and with a good straight edge easy to trim leaving nice sharp and even cuts. Also to bear in mind a lot of our business customers change their mural every year just to keep their workspace fresh and inviting as unlike other wallpapers which is a great benefit Non-woven papers are really easy to strip because they are extremely durable so tend to come off in large strips just wet the backing whatever is left on and leave for 2 mins and then scrape off…easy.
