Express Yourself with Wallcoverings
Want to express yourself and your individual decor preferences? Give wallcoverings
a try. The wallcovering industry is trying to get the word out that wallpaper is
back and indeed it is in many design circles. Many designers I have recently visited
with are elated at the new textures fauxs available today. There has never been
a better time to find an enormous selection of styles and textures to choose from.
With tens of thousands of patterns on the marketplace, there is perhaps no other
product that allows such a range of self-expression.
Wallcoverings can be dramatic... whimsical... comforting... stimulating... formal...
casual. They can help homeowners show their personality. Is there a sports enthusiast
in the family? Then try a hunting, golfing or football motif. Are you crazy about
gardening? You may want to try a seed-packet border or a wallcovering featuring
your favorite florals. The industry has taken one giant step forward in developing
a sub-strait to print on that will not shrink during the drying process. It is also
much more easily stripped later when you want to change designs. Are your kids crazy
for dinosaurs, bears or elephants? Whatever they like, you'll be able to show it
There has never been a better selection of quality wallcovering to choose from and
yet the industry keeps shrinking. For the heads up homeowner, now is the time to
add Wallcovering. You can choose beautiful renditions of stone, granite, marble,
leather or suede as a subtle wallcovering background.
Texture is one of the most important trends in the wallcovering market today, many
designers agree. New sophisticated printing techniques have brought about beautiful
embossed and light-reflective effects that can make your walls truly sensational.
Wallcoverings also allow you to be transported to another culture. You can enjoy
the same designs enjoyed by Europeans, South Americans or the Oriental culture.
It is yours for the taking. From the casual, unspoiled looks of the American West
to the formal, floral elegance of English Country to the light, airy feeling of
French Country, wallcoverings encompasses the entire spectrum. So, whether you want
something traditional, transitional, contemporary or just plain try putting wallpaper
on the wall. It probably cheaper than paint and a lot easier to keep clean.
