Why Feature Walls?
Feature walls have become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason. These walls serve as a focal point in a room, drawing the eye and adding interest and depth to an otherwise plain space. A well-designed feature wall can transform the entire look and feel of a room, creating a stylish and personalized environment that reflects your personality and taste.
One of the biggest benefits of feature walls is that they offer a cost-effective way to update a room's decor without breaking the bank. Instead of having to purchase new furniture or accessories, you can simply change the look of a single wall to create a dramatic look. They’re also an opportunity to experiment with different colors, patterns, and textures that you might be hesitant to incorporate into an entire room.
Step 1: Choose Your Peel and Stick Wallpaper
First, choose the peel and stick wallpaper that best suits your style and the room's theme. Consider the room's existing color scheme, furniture, and decor. Look for a pattern or color that will complement the room without overpowering it. There are many different peel and stick wallpaper designs available, from bold prints to subtle textures. You can also mix and match different wallpaper designs to create a unique feature wall.
Step 2: Prepare the Wall
Before applying the wallpaper, make sure the wall is clean, dry, and smooth. Use a damp cloth to wipe away any dust, dirt, or debris. If there are any cracks or holes in the wall, fill them in with spackle and sand them smooth. For best results, prime the wall with a high-quality primer. This will help the wallpaper adhere better and prevent any discoloration.
Step 3: Measure and Cut the Wallpaper
Measure the wall and cut the wallpaper to the appropriate size. You can use a ruler or measuring tape to get precise measurements. Add a few inches to the height and width of the wall to ensure that the wallpaper covers the entire surface. When cutting the wallpaper, use a sharp utility knife or scissors to make clean, straight cuts. Be sure to match the pattern carefully when cutting each strip.
Step 4: Apply the Wallpaper
Peel off the backing of the wallpaper and align the top edge with the top of the wall. Smooth the wallpaper down with a wallpaper smoothing tool to remove any air bubbles. Work from the top of the wall down to the bottom, smoothing out any wrinkles or bubbles as you go. Repeat this process with each strip of wallpaper, aligning the pattern carefully.
Step 5: Trim the Edges
Once all the wallpaper strips are in place, trim any excess wallpaper from the edges using a sharp utility knife or scissors. Be sure to cut along the edge of the wall carefully to avoid damaging the wallpaper or the wall.
