Bathroom Wallpapering

Wallpapers come in hundreds of colors and patterns. Choose the one that goes well with your bathroom’s theme. Of course, since the bathroom is often damp, find a wallpaper that is also waterproof. If you can find one that is able to withstand humidity as well, then you’ve just purchased the perfect piece.

Your first option is the vinyl wallpaper. Flawed and damaged walls can look great once more with this type of wallpaper. It can come pre-glued so all you have to do is to soak the strips in water for just a few seconds. Water moistens the glue.

If you have chosen the one that is not pre-glued, then be sure to spread the adhesive on the wrong side as you install it. Find a brush with long handle and use it to apply the adhesive at the back of the wallpaper.

Stick the strips to the walls, just make sure that you cut the bottom strips if they exceed the walls’ length. Use a sharp razor or knife.

Faux marble wallpapers look great inside a bathroom because they copy the look of real marble. This is especially wonderful for light-colored bathrooms.

Be careful in installing faux marble wallpapers as the glue can stick to your hand rather than the wallpaper. The glue sticks easily so be sure to position the wallpaper at a perfect spot before you press.

Faux marble wallpapers come in peach, beige or white shades.

Grass cloth wallpapers look great in bathrooms that have matching toiletries. These come in various colors and designs and can be bought in beige, off-white or brown blends. To decorate with grass cloth, be sure to begin by cutting it into strips.

Carefully spray adhesive to your bathroom walls then position the strips. This type of wallpaper can effectively brighten your walls.

To remove, just apply an adhesive remover then strip the wallpaper starting on the edges.

So where do you begin? Start at the point where you want to end. This should be that spot that is least obvious. Use vertical trimming on this portion. Repeat trimming only where there is an obstruction such as a doorway or a window.

Make pencil marks on the areas where the seams will be positioned, re-adjust where necessary. You would want to leave the tic marks for later installation then adjust the so-called killpoint as needed.

There are hundreds of methods that you can position wallpapers inside corners. One of the easiest is to pull the strip to the corner using a smoother. Make sure that the wallpaper feels tight from top to bottom. Smoothen the rest all the way to the opposing wall.
