It will certainly be no surprise when I tell you that designer wallpapers have been an ongoing trend for the last few years. The patterns we see today are far from what they were back in the ’80s and ’90s. But why did wallpapers become so successful? It’s because of their inexpensive price. Combined with beautiful patterns and motifs, we can present you this success story of wallpapers.
Nowadays there are wallpaper variations suitable for everyone. Some of these really do stand out and noteworthy of a mention. Designer wallpapers aren’t just like any other wallpapers, the amount of thought, craftsmanship and eye for detail put into it make them real eye catchers.
The designer wallpaper you see here was created by Piet Hein Eek, a famous Dutch designer. He became famous internationally with this scrapwood wallpaper design. This wallpaper collection consists of emulated planks of real wood on paper. If you’re in need of a warm look and feel, look no further! This is the wallpaper for you. This collection also offers other variations with more vintage designs.
This multi-colour scrapwood brings back the ’70s and ’80s with this iconic vintage look.
Piet Hein introduced a new collection with the company NLXL. They introduced the collection named “Materials”, containing 8 contemporary pieces of art wallpaper. It was an instant hit. NLXL offers a variety of designer wallpaper collections by different artists on their website.
Benefits of designer wallpapers
In case you’re still not convinced that wallpapers are the way to go: Let’s see what the benefits of wallpapers are, compared to paint. As we mentioned before, wallpapers are an easy and inexpensive way to change the look and feel of a space without a lot of effort.
Although not a lot of people may be aware of this, using wallpapers is really effective for the durability of your wall. The solid colour a wallpaper provides adds an extra layer that protects your wall. One that you can wash and clean with ease.
Washable wallpapers are suitable for many different spaces, such as your living room, bedroom, dining room and even the kitchen. By using a damp cloth, it’s an easy fix to wipe away any dirt.
Are designer wallpapers easy to install?
More often than not, people wonder how one puts up the wallpaper without it getting stuck filled with air bubbles. To be honest, not all wallpapers are easy to apply to your walls. Therefore it is important to read the wallpapers’ specific instructions before buying. If you happen to have a traditional wallpaper on hand, soaking it in water before applying does the trick. But with the newer wallpaper technology, you have to apply the paste directly to the wall and hang-dry the wallpaper.
My conclusion is that wallpapers are a great solution if you’re looking for a nice design on your walls. You can achieve a lot more than just a regular paint job, and it adds a lot of vibe to your space. Wallpapers are durable and long-lasting. And in most cases better for your walls than paint.
