Lately, wallpaper has been making a comeback as a way create a unique look in a room. The latest trends we’re seeing in the Novi area are actually turning fabric into beautiful wallpaper. Check it out!
Now you can turn almost any fabric into wallpaper by using a paper backing available through such companies as Robert Allen and FabWall®.
Paper backing provides the proper stiffness and moisture protection to fabrics so they can be pasted to walls. If no paper is used, humidity and heat can cause the fabric to bubble and sag; plus, the adhesives could seep through the front of the fabric. The front of the fabric can also be treated with a stain protection
that makes it resistant to moisture and stains and can be cleaned with a moist sponge.
Benefits of Using Fabric as Wallpaper
Using fabric on your walls provides a striking effect on vertical surfaces and aids in sound absorption and insulation. The fabric can coordinate with other accessories in the room. The extra thickness of the fabric can help conceal blemishes on wall. Finally, the original color, texture, and quality of fabric is better maintained over the years.
How to Select Wall Fabrics
Although almost any fabric can be used as wall covering, there are some useful guidelines that you may find helpful when selecting your fabric. Stay away from fabrics with horizontal stripes or horizontal repeats, fabrics that are loosely woven, and fabrics that have a precision pattern where seams would meet (for example, the leaves of a tree).
So, go out there and have some fun. Make your walls a conversation-starter. The options are endless!
