Wallpaper Making a Comeback?

Merge wall mural

You read that right, wallpaper is making a comeback.  We’ve been saying it for awhile now but of course, our opinion could be biased because we print wallpaper.  Now the experts at Mercury News have weighed in and confirmed that wallpaper indeed is not what it used to be.

When we think of wallpaper, often the image of cheesy 70’s and 80’s unattractive prints come to mind.  Well, it’s time to update your thinking because wallpaper has updated its look.  Marni Jameson from the Mercury News had the chance to look deeper into the wallpaper update by taking information from Joanna Gaines of HGTV’s television series “Fixer Upper,” and this is what she found.

Season, style, and personal preferences often change.  One day you may lomerge (wall mural 2)ve the colors in your house and the vibe that it gives, but you may wake up one morning with a change of heart and want something new.  Wallpaper, unlike painting, gives you that luxury of changing your mind.  Gaines looked at all the previous kinds of wallpaper dating back about 100 years which inspired her more modern design.

Not only have the patterns been revamped but the way that the wallpaper is installed and removed has become less stressful.  Gone are the days of picking and peeling at paper that ruins the wall underneath.

Gaines has her own brand of wallpaper that takes away the challenge of install but if you’re thinking local, our wallpaper material here at SpeedPro East Bay allows for easy install, removal, and is guaranteed to last many years without peeling or fading.  We have special installers to help with this also, so there is no need to waste a perfectly good weekend with a DIY project.
