Sterling Painters, Your Painting & Decorating Service Melbourne.
Category: Wallpaper Projects
Wallpaper Projects. Detailing the range of wallpaper options, from the classic to the contempory.
Whether you want your entire house wallpapered, or a special room. Or because you need to give a dramatic ascent to a wall. We’ve hung everything from Chinese Silks to Grass Papers, and everything inbetween.
Because we are The Ascot Vale House Painters, we love to paint colour! Surprising eh? So finding a client with a great paint colour scheme, is a great reward for us.
Subtle paint colours and ascents, can make all the difference. Adding depth to rooms, and well needed interest. Whilst the blank canvas aproach to homes is great. Because it helps to show of your pieces and furniture. Sometimes the holistic painting approach shouldn’t be wasted. Because having the furniture and paint work all singing from the same song sheet, working together, can make a home, a home.
Wallpaper Installation – No Hanging About!
We even got to hang some wallpaper here too, and you know I love to hang wallpaper. As always the key to hanging wallpaper is preparation, preparation is the key to just about everything! Having a flat surface, priming (sizing), and doing the maths and working out where each and every drop is going to hang.
Our Colour Consultant and the customer finally came to a bold choice of wallpaper for a bathroom. It did take a little discussion here and there to agree! Nobody can say it’s an understated, or a vanilla choice.
The Wallpaper Installation
Whilst just a small room, it was full of difficult tasks. The bulkhead, power sockets, handrails, door furniture and even hanging wallpaper on a door.
We had to undercoat everything with Taubmans 3 in 1. This produces a sealed, chemically even surface, so we can hang wallpaper on it.
The wallpaper itself was over 1 metre in width and had to be pasted in a different room, so even walking through the doorway proved difficult.
The first drop, behind the doorway, was easy, but the other six drops proved to be anything but easy.
Wallpaper and Materials Used:
Wild Thing – Flavor Paper
“Say goodbye to long, bumpy plane rides and instead bring the tropical vacation straight to your home with Wild Thing. Our latest collaboration with Ghislane Viñas.”
Romans Adhesive, whilst expensive, is strippable. Why would this be so good, you ask? In a few years, chances are you want to remove the wallpaper. Strippable means: You gently peel the two bottom corners, and then gently peel the entire hang upwards. Simple as that. No mess, no fuss.

A good way to sell wallpaper is to hang wallpaper in your showroom, sounds obvious, and this is one of my favourite wallpapers. It really shows what is out there and how wallpaper has developed over the past few years. As interior painters, this is something we have a lot of experience of.
Yes wallpaper is classic, and it is retro, but it’s also modern and is at the forefront of design. Everything from the classic flock, through to murials, and specially printed designs of images you’ve provided. You could even have your favourite image of your cat made into wallpaper, if that’s what you want.
Graphical prints are getting more and more popular, reinventing classic designs, as here , and turning pop culture and graffiti into something that comes in rolls. Wallpaper hanging is proving to be very cool at the moment.
And still, wallpaper hanging has it’s own set of problems. And it won’t disguise a badly plastered wall either! Some cheaper wallpapers are waffer thin and have no backing. Expensive ones are individually hand printed. And patterns and colours don’t match even within the same roll. Because of these problems, amongst others, I find wallpaper hanging can be very difficult. And as so, I wouldn’t recommend a novice attempting it.
