Why use wallpaper?

Wallpaper isn’t just an alternative to painting, it’s a way to reflect your personal style in a graphic and individual way. It can immediately create some wow factor in an otherwise plain room, make the room look bigger or turn it into a sanctuary from the outside world.

What kind of hook should I use?

Wallpaper is so much easier to hang these days. Gone are the days of pre-cutting and pre-soaking your wallpaper before hanging it. The new, simple way to hang wallpaper is to paste the wall, not the paper. It even comes off in one piece if you want to change it down the track. Why not call up some friends, put on some tunes on and get stuck into it together!

The great thing about wallpaper is...

Where do we start? How about the countless colours, textures and patterns available. Or the fact it’s much more hard-wearing and long-lasting compared to paint. Wallpaper can change the look of a room completely, or even provide a striking backdrop for your own artwork.
