Useful tips to know before wallpapering a room

Wallpaper varies greatly in its material content, which helps determine how a paper looks and how it handles. Vinyl wallpaper are popular because they are durable, fairly easy to install, and easy to maintain. There are fabric-backed vinyl, paper-backed vinyl, and ones designed to look like a three dimensional surface, such as plaster, granite, or grass cloth, which are suitable for walls that aren’t perfectly smooth.

Fabric wallpaper is usually made of cotton, linen, or other natural plant fibers, such as grass-cloth, hemp, or burlap. Most textiles fray easily and are not washable. Solid paper wall coverings include hand-screened papers, foils, flocked papers with textured patterns, and murals. Both textile and paper wallpapers should be installed by professionals. Thinking beyond wallpaper covering, the possibility of stone, ceramic tile, wood, and metal is different materials that can cover walls too.

To determine how much wallpaper to buy, measure the height and width of each wall using a steel tape measure. Round up to the nearest foot. Multiply the height and width of each wall, and then add the figures together to get the rough square footage. How a room is used will help you determine what wall coverings are most suitable. Get a sample or one rolls and looks at it in the room with your other furnishings and samples to compare there different pattern and texture.

When it comes to wall-coverings choices, you may want to think outside the box, as they say, and consider new materials as well as traditional materials used in new and different ways. Think about new places to use them, such as decorative tile in the dining room or wood in the bathroom. You might choose an elegant linen or flocked paper for the living room. Either kind of paper texture will add richness to a room.

Refinish or Paint? The Pros and Cons of Woodwork Finishes

Do you have natural or stained woodwork?  Is it looking dull, scuffed and in need of something to make it look good?

If it is, you’re probably asking yourself  “Should I refresh the stain, strip the woodwork or put on a coat of paint?

The answer is it depends.

Maybe you’re looking at your trim and thinking that it’s dated.   Fashions in interior design choices change.  Your first consideration should be the look you want.   If you want to completely change the color of your woodwork – say from walnut stain to white  – then painted woodwork may be the simplest, easiest way to accomplish that.

But if you really love natural wood trim – it’s just that your trim is a bit worn and drab – then you may want to consider reviving that natural wood look.  Many of the people I talk with who call for estimates on painting or refinishing trim just want a color change.

Usually there are a couple of options they’re considering:

  • Painted white trim
  • Darker stained trim
  • Stripping the trim to go lighter in color
  • Painting the trim to match the wall color


Is there one best choice?  Not really.   And while I love paint and what it can do to make your home’s interior a very special, personal space where you can relax and recharge, I also know that any paint will lose durability over time.  Paint also chips no matter how careful you are. (Trust me on this… my brothers and I chipped a lot of paint in my parent’s home while we were growing up.)

It’s labor intensive to paint woodwork and it can be expensive because you have the cost of primer, paint and, if you’re hiring it done, labor. In a room that takes eight hours to paint, we usually find that it can take up to twice that amount of time – usually 12 to 16 hours to prime and paint the trim.


But what about reviving your trim yet keeping the natural wood look. You’re probably thinking “Isn’t that labor intensive?”  And you may be wondering “How do I do that – it’s all been covered with polyurethane?”

Reviving trim is much simpler than you would think.  There are some great new products on the market that you can just wipe over your trim to revive it.   It does take proper advance preparation – taping off walls and window panes and putting down proper floor protection, but it’s not at all labor intensive like the old shellacs and varnishes. The product I particularly like is Restor-A-Finish.

Here are some options to consider when you’re making the decision whether to keep your trim stained or paint it.
1.      Refreshing the trim color you have now.  Over time stain, like everything else, fades.   You might fall in love with your trim again if you revived the color to the one you originally chose.

2.      Staining your trim a darker color.   Yes, this takes work but it’s not as labor intensive as painting trim.

3.      Stripping your trim and starting with a new, lighter color – maybe a pickling stain or one with a slight tint.  This is a more labor intensive project, but if you really want a change yet want to keep the warmth of wood in your home this may be the best option.

In the end your decision should be based on what will make you happy and your home lovely.  Do you prefer the look of wood – stained or natural – or are you a big fan of painted trim?

10 Simple Steps To Remove Wallpaper Like A Pro

Wallpaper is meant to come down like it went up – in full sheets, not in a thousand small pieces.  Here’s my simple DIY guide to removing wallpaper like a pro.

Once you’ve got that old wallpaper down you’re ready to take the next step – paint the walls in an entirely new home decoration scheme that will make your house look like you’re an expert in interior design!

10 Simple Steps To Wallpaper Removal

Step 1 – Score wallpaper with Paper Tiger.

Step 2 – Saturate wall with wallpaper removal solution.  A pump up garden sprayer makes this step a lot easier.

Step 3 – Let the walls soak for at least 10 minutes.  Mist walls if necessary – just don’t let the solution dry out.

Step 4 – Grab a lower corner of paper and start to remove.  If it doesn’t come down in a full sheet, stop and repeat Step 2.

Step 5 – If any paper backing remains after removing the face paper repeat steps 2 and step 3.  A wall scraper is helpful to remove any excess paper and glue.  Take care not to gouge the wall as you use the scraper or you will leave yourself with a lot of drywall repair.

Step 6 – After all wallpaper is removed scrub down the walls with green scrubby and wallpaper removal solution.  This will remove excess paste.

Step 7 – Soak clean rags in fresh water and wipe down walls.

Step 8 – Prime walls with a good sealing primer like Smart Prime from Zinsser.  This will help seal up any remaining glue and prepare your surface for paint.

Step 9 – Repair any drywall damage, spot prime repairs and apply two coats of paint.

Step 10 – Step back, crack a beer and admire your masterpiece!

The Beauty of a Decorative Vase, Jar and Urns

Home decor ideas are easy to conjure if you’re in the business. If not, then you should read this blog.

decorative vase or jar can do a lot for an empty corner, table or counter top. You don’t even have to fill it with flowers, but should you choose to, you can take one of two routes. Real flowers are beautiful, can be switched when they die, and smell good. But they die – about every two weeks. And unless you’re really stoked about flowers and have a lot of money, chances are you won’t be able to keep your decorative vase full.

Fake flowers are just as beautiful, never need to be changed, but unfortunately don’t smell. Either way, you can likely convince visitors that you’re a horticulturist, knowledgeable in botany and other natural sciences.

Both types of flowers will add splashes of color to your room, and as the sun stretches over them, they will cast oblong shadows with furry edges that give depth and space to an area. Early morning sun will hit your flowers and you will feel their vibrancy, refreshment, and life. They will lean and stretch in your decorative vase, sticking their tendrils out like feelers into the open air.  Like children you will tend, prune and fix them, and they will shudder graciously at your touch.
