'Need a Paint' Wallpapering

Wallpaper is a terrific way to groom your room. With a variety of colors and patterns to choose from, Need a Paint is able to assist you to create a new small project that will modernise the look of your property.

But like any home improvement project, preparation is key. At Need a Paint we will make sure the walls will be both flat and clean. Our wallpaper jobs present no bubbles, no messy glues, giving your room a fresh new look, transforming your walls into a work of art!

Measuring correctly your room is very important

  1. Measure the width and height of each wall in the room to come up with the square footage.
  2. Do not forget the measure the square footage of areas that won't be covered by the paper, such as windows, air-conditioners, doors, etc.
  3. Most wallpaper rolls are 56 square feet. If you are buying your own wallpaper, bear in mind that there is a normal waste of approximately 18%, which means that you will get only about 46 square feet per roll. So make sure you overestimate your calculations to not run out of paper.

If you like to use Patterns

  • A horizontal pattern can make your room look wider - they are great options for narrower rooms.
  • Vertical patterns give the impression of height to a room - preferred patterns to be used on low ceilings, or intensifying the look of high ceilings.
  • Please note: if your walls and/or ceilings aren't perfectly squared, you may rethink the use of horizontal or vertical patterns, as the final results are not going to be achieved on the same way.

Other factors

Depending on the paper you choose (paper, vinyl or another material), adhesives/glue vary, and the wallpaper may not hold properly. Therefore, by providing us with your wallpaper specifications we will buy the right adhesive for the job.
