“These days when someone hears the term “wall covering,” the response is usually a combination of goose-bumps and a “you’ve got to be kidding me” look.

n

However, according to RueMag.com, wall covering never went out….it just went into hibernation for a while.  The wall coverings that are available today are not the wallpapers your grandmother (or mother) would have on her kitchen walls. There is a wide variety of beautiful (yes, beautiful) fresh, durable, textured and rich wall coverings that can enhance any wall in your home.”

“Although wall covering is coming out of hibernation, we are finding there is one hurdle that must be overcome in Texas: textured walls.  Almost every home in this state has textured walls.  Unfortunately, wall coverings cannot be applied to a textured wall or ceiling.

n

If you have textured walls (and you probably do), don’t lose heart. There is a solution; it just make take an extra step.  The surface will need to be floated out and smoothed over in order to apply a fabulous roll of two of the great-looking paper.  Although this is a solution to the Texas textured wals, this added expense can often deter people from selecting wall coverings. However, if you are considerings a remodeling project, it would benefit you to consult with a professional in order to help you think ahead.  As you acknowledge walls and ceiling thats make the perfect location for thie design element, you will be able to prevent the extra step and expense.  Make sure these identified walls are not textured in the building phases and they will be ready for the faculous wall covering you have selected to compliment the spaces.

The following is a list of great spaces for wall coverings:

n

*Kitchen,

n

*Laundry room,

n

*Powder Room

n

*Child’e bedroom,

n

*Study or home office,

n

*Sunrooms,

n

*Your “fourth wall,” the ceiling; or the backs of bookshelves.

Do not let Texas’ textured walls limit creative options when updating your space.  Professionals in the industry can assist in the selecting just the right walls to update with this once-said outdated design element and enhance the beauty of your environment.”
