Everyone knows that Wallpaper is a beautiful way to create depth with design on your walls, but did you realize this classic designer paper is also amazing in other home décor applications as well? Crafty guys and gals on Etsy, Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest have been bursting with alternative wall paper ideas over the past few months. There are simply too many to share them all, but I want to show you five of the absolute BEST ones we have seen.

Creating ornaments from wallpaper is a fantastic way to get rid of leftover wallpaper from other projects, but we warn you… it gets addictive! Seen everywhere from Etsy to Pinterest these ornaments are unique and beautiful pieces you can use all year long. Wall paper wooden hearts for valentines, reindeer for Christmas, and even pretty pumpkins for Halloween.

Number 4: Craft Beautiful Boxes

There are endless possibilities for things you can do with old shoe boxes or unfinished wood boxes, and wallpaper can make them look absolutely stunning. Create jewelry boxes, a place for old photos, gift containers, bookshelf storage, or anything else you can think of. This is a fairly simple craft that even younger children can help out with, making it an ideal project for families.

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 Paintable wallpaper is perfect for hiding outdated paneling, nail holes, and old tough to cover water stains.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.

Contemporary Wallpaper Murals For Renters & Dorms

Wallpaper is not just the boring and old fashioned stuff you see in your grannies house. Today’s decorative wallpapers are available in such a wide variety of themes and colors that just about any taste in decorating style can be satisfied. In addition to such a wide variety, wall coverings are also available in easily removable and even re-positionable options. Removable wallpaper will not damage walls and is ideal for renters, college dorm rooms, and for those who like to re-decorate fairly often.

If your taste runs the contemporary route, you might be interested in these beautiful wall murals from 4Walls “Peel and Stick” Tella line:

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 Tree Hugger Mural

It may have a funny name, but this mural can take a boring wall in any room and transform it into a work of art. With this mural it feels as though you brought a little bit of natural beauty into your home. This mural makes an excellent feature wall backdrop for artfully hung “family tree” photos.

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.

Temporary Wallpaper and Other Home Decor Ideas For Renters

If you’re renting you  are amongst the hundreds of thousands of people who have chosen not to go the route of home ownership in this tough economy. Renting doesn’t have the same negative connotation it did a few years ago because today’s renter doesn’t risk taking on an upside-down mortgage, rising home repairs, or a potential devastating foreclosure.

In the meantime, you certainly don’t have to give up the dream of living in a space you’ll totally love to come home to. The most difficult obstacle to consider is obeying decorating limitations in your lease. Some landlords out there won’t mind wallpapering and repainting, some simply request you have plans approved, but most landlords are simply not that lenient.

If your lease will not allow alterations like paint or wallpaper, you don’t have to give up totally on a personal style. There are lots of peel and stick temporary wallpaper options for renters. Here are some tips for how to use temporary wallpaper:

Temporary Wallpaper is safe to use. When you use wallpaper that is specifically made to come off clean, you do not need to worry about damaging the walls of your apartment. You can often re-use it later. Companies that make super strippable wallpaper include 4Walls, Warner, Blue Mountain, Brewster, and York.

Don’t you hate moving into a place with existing flaws? With temporary wallpaper you can hide it! The ugly patched vent where a fireplace used to be can be hidden away so it can no longer taunt you and your guests each time you enter the room. Those little holes from tacks and screws everywhere… gone… with an application of a temporary wallpaper pattern or mural you love.

Turn “It’s… nice… and boring.” into “Wow! I wish my place was this nice!” How? By creating interest with temporary wallpaper. You can match bookshelves to a feature wall by applying wallpaper onto the back of the shelves or use it to create interest on set of plain closet doors. You could even take scraps of leftover wallpaper and put them in frames of various sizes to set out on a desk or mantle, no drilling needed simply prop them up against the wall or use a stand.

Reduce the use of accessories. Shopping for those little accents can be fun, but you don’t want to have so much stuff to move later. You will find that once you’ve designed a temporary focal wall with wallpaper it will break-up the monotony caused by simply using furniture to fill a room. What you want to do is choose either a mural you love, or a pattern of wallpaper that matches your personal style, go bold and you will not need a bunch of little accessories to fill in the gaps.

We make it easy to browse through thousand’s of super strippable wallpaper patterns to find the perfect wall paper for your needs. Visit us online at WallpaperWholesaler.com or give us a call for personal customer service at (888) 305-8020.

Design In Color: Green Decor

Mood Living by Astek MC11922

Mood Living by Astek MC11922

I love green walls because they are so restful, cheerful, soothing, and energizing all at the same time. Green is a great color to use when your home is otherwise neutral because it is generally considered a ‘cool’ color that symbolizes nature and the natural aspects of the world. Researchers have even found that green might possibly even improve reading ability; students have found that applying a transparent sheet of green over something they are reading actually increases comprehension and reading speed.

Green is thought to promote healing and rest. A great way to use this potential benefit in your decor is to add green to the walls of your bedroom. For many of us the bedroom is that perfect place where we can relax after a long and stressful day or work and household chores.

Of course the color green is not just for your bedroom, you can use it anywhere in your home as much or as little as your taste and style calls for. One of our customers created a beautiful headboard by using an elegant but outdated headboard found at an antique store, and covering it with a gorgeous green wallpaper pattern that matched other elements in her room. Another one of our customers used a green vinyl wallpaper to create a unique washable back-splash in her quaint country kitchen.

The color green is all about harmony and balance, it evokes thoughts of growth, of spring, of rebirth and renewal. Researchers report that most people feel positive emotions about the color green, reporting a drop in the level of stress they feel. Green is considered to be a very lucky color that attracts wealth, prosperity, and abundance in the lives of those who surround themselves with it.

At Wallpaper Wholesaler we offer thousands of green wallpapers to choose from through our many designer collections. We make it easy to browse through these thousands of wall paper patterns to find the perfect green wall paper for your needs.
