Uses for Paintable Wallpaper

We are totally sold on the amazing things you can do with paintable wallpaper! It is actually one of the most overlooked types of wallpaper by many people, but it has so many great uses. From re-creating the look of bead board to elegantly covering ceilings, a roll of paintable wallpaper can be applied to much more than walls alone. This amazing wall covering is truly the perfect solution for bringing dimension to flat surfaces throughout your home.

Since this wallpaper has texture and pop, it really hides all those uneven or unsightly spots your wall or ceiling may have. Paintable wallpaper is perfect for hiding outdated paneling, nail holes, and old tough to cover water stains. Styles can range from distinct elegant patterns to textures that look like plaster or fabric.

While you can certainly apply paintable wallpaper anywhere in your home, many people are using it in the kitchen as a backsplash since it is washable, on living room ceilings, and to create interest in the family room or den. Some people even use paintable wallcoverings in the bathroom since they are vinyl and stand up quite well to moisture. With a simple coat of paint, boring walls and ceilings are now filled with depth and actually add a lot of character to your home.

Paintable wallpapers are often used on the ceiling as an alternative to the more expensive and complicated plaster. From a simple look, to the more ornate, paintable wall coverings on the ceiling tend to draw the eye up and give a room the illusion of having higher ceilings and more space. Application is very simple and can be easily done in one afternoon with a 2-person team.

When you are ready to install your new paintable wallpaper you should keep in mind that you must wait roughly 48 hours after hanging the paper up before painting it your desired color. This will help you avoid any issues where the paste has not dried. For best results, and to avoid bubbling or peeling, you should apply a paint primer and use a quality Latex based or Alkyd oil based paint.

The Top 3 Commercial Wall Paper Picks

When it comes to big jobs like covering the walls of doctor’s offices, resort lodgings, fine restaurants, office buildings and other high traffic locations, simple residential style wallpaper just won’t do. Commercial locations require heavy duty wall coverings made to withstand regular contact, temperature changes, the risk of everyday splatters or spills, and even the risk of fading over time. There are also the requirements of flame resistance and weight class that must be met before a contractor can even consider style options for a client.

Due to all of the considerations mentioned above, these three commercial wallpaper choices have been the most sought-after options on the market time after time:

1.       Fabric-Backed Solid Vinyl

Fabric backed vinyl wallpaper is most likely the most popular choice of this top 3 list. The main reasons for this is that this type of commercial wallcovering fits within the Class A Fire Rating standard, comes in Type 1 or Type 2 weight classes, comes in extra wide widths, is easy to keep clean, resists fading, and is easily strippable making future aesthetic changes easy. There is plenty of variety as well making it a contractor’s dream when particularly selective clients are involved.

2.      Multi-Use Textile Wall Covering

Textile wallcoverings are made up of natural and synthetic woven materials. Often made from partially recycled polyester material, this option is also very eco-friendly for environmentally aware companies. Textiles come in multiple colors and can be used in a variety of applications. The textured appearance also lends a great deal of character to an otherwise flat and uninteresting wall.

3.      Paintable Textured Wallpaper

Rather than simply paint a flat wall, paintable wallpaper is being used in many commercial applications to add depth. There are plenty of other benefits as well such as covering uneven walls or patched surfaces, and protecting the wall itself against being easily damaged. The end effect is also quite attractive and professional, an easy way to please clients looking for that subtle extra touch.

The Antique Map Mural

Maps are currently a very popular decor option, and are truly timeless. The hard lines and solid colors of the contemporary furniture mix well with the classic back-drop of the navigation chart feel of the map mural on the wall. I love how the modern and antique aspects play off one another in a very classy sort of way. Against a blank wall this furniture would have little interest, but this backdrop makes everything else in the room really “pop” out at you.

The Natural Birch Tree Mural

The use of the birch tree wall mural in the bathroom of this home shows clever use of a neutral and soothing color palette combined with the visual pop of the mural. The effect is impressive but not at all overwhelming. Many of us neglect our bathrooms yet we often spend more time in them than other rooms of the house, and like it or not, it is guaranteed to be one of the rooms your guests will remember most. So why not make it memorable such a very positive way?

The Watercolor Journey Children’s Mural

Contemporary nurseries and children’s rooms are also very popular choices in home decor currently. The watercolor journey wall mural works very well with the colorful modern furniture pieces being both fun and playful. The best part is this mural could easily work from newborn to elementary school, and then since it is made to come off easily without damage to walls, it can be replaced easily with decor more suited to a teen’s tastes.
