Wallpaper has been making a come back and is in vogue! If you love Pinterest or Houzz, I am sure you are seeing more rooms that feature wallpaper.  So how would you like to use wallpaper to add style to a room?
It’s a great way to add color and interest to a bathroom.

Here are a few of my tips if to help if you are want to add wallpaper:
1) Find the qualified wallpaper hanger.  I keep a list of great installers and can help my clients through the process of choosing someone.
2) Have your wallpaper hanger come to the job site to take measurements and give you an installation estimate.  Have a sample with the repeat and yardage amount on each roll- important information to order the proper amount from the
manufacturer.
3) Make sure you prepare your sheetrock correctly for the installation.  Use an oil based primer so moisture from the wall will not seep through your wallpaper. This correct primer also prevents the paper corners from curling and helps the process of removing wallpaper when you decide to change the look of your room down the line.
