There are 10 basic types of wallpaper you can choose from:
Need a liner?: You might consider pasting a liner over your wall before applying the wall covering of your choice. The liner will hide many imperfections in the wall and make it much easier to strip the covering off in the future for a new look.
Damage: Most wallpaper damage is inevitable with people and pets around, scratches and gouges are bound to appear, and any number of accidents and natural disasters can cause water or smoke damage. But a couple of common repairs are easy to make without having to call a Service Professional.
If the paste wasn't evenly spread over the back of a strip, seams can come apart or corners can peel. You can buy wallpaper seam sealer (paste in a tube) for the job at your local paint and wallpaper dealer, and re-roll the edges.
Bubbles in wallpaper are caused by improper pasting and smoothing during the installation. You can pierce the bubble with a razor blade, squeeze in some seam sealer paste, roll over the bubble and wipe it clean. The spot should dry flat.
Order extra: Whether you're using tiles, carpet, paint or wallpaper for your home services projects, it's a good idea to order more material than you need. The extra supplies may come in handy if you change your mind and add more to your project, and for future use in repairs and maintenance.
