Wild about wallpaper

Written by: Kelly Z. Clark

For many people the word “wallpaper” can conjure up some pretty unpleasant memories.  The nightmare of removing wallpaper (sometimes multiple layers at one time) has left some contemplating the use of sledgehammers and sandblasting.  While other well intentioned DIY’ers began a day of hanging wallpaper with their spouses, only to have it end in near divorce.  Exchanging wallpaper horror stories has become as common as swapping tales of endless hours spent in child labor.  The point is many people fear, and therefore, avoid wallpaper.

But once again technology has prevailed, and this time it has given rise to new wall covering products that will have many of us forgetting our past experiences, and delving in with renewed enthusiasm.  For the DIY’er, wallpaper manufacturers have developed product lines that virtually eliminate the negative issues associated with both the installation and removal process.
