If you’re looking for a new wall covering but don’t want to stick with the standard paints, why not try the new wallpaper that is available these days that actually looks like concrete? Concrete wallpaper can create fantastic effects and suits so many different styles of homes.
Read on for more information about concrete wallpaper:
Concrete wallpaper is just a form of wallpaper that has been made to look like concrete. That is, it has been printed to give an authentic concrete finish. The main advantage is that because it is a latex based wallpaper, it is easy to install on just about any wall and it comes in rolls just like standard wallpaper.
You have the option of having your wallpaper specifically printed for you so that you get the exact concrete finish that you are after. If you want to do this, it is advised that you order one or two extra rolls, so that you can match the existing wallpaper if it needs repairing (as there can be colour inconsistencies between different batches).
Concrete wallpaper is actually very attractive and it allows you to have the finish of concrete on your walls without the hassle. It is an easy way to bring in all types of concrete finishes – smooth, pitted, textured, and s o on. It can be hung using standard wallpaper adhesives and on exactly the same types of walls as normal wallpaper can.
You can use concrete wallpaper wherever you like in the home – to create a feature wall in the bedroom, to make your living walls achieve the gritty look of concrete, and so on. The beauty of this form of wallpaper is that you can create an urban, modern feel, or you can use it to create a rustic, country feel just as easily. It is surprisingly versatile.
