Wallpaper Hanging in Leicester

Mark Rogers Decorating specialise in wallpaper hanging in Leicester to a very high standard. We have been wallpapering in Leicester since we were established and take extreme pride in our work and the finished results we produce.

Over the years the quality of wallpaper has improved tremendously as well as the inks used to produce the patterns and prints. However, it is still important to use a good quality manufacturer as the end result is only as good as the materials used.

We have hung wallpaper in and around most of Leicester and Leicestershire over the years. These include many high class homes and restaurants. A good quality wallpaper can be used to give warmth and depth to a room. It can even be used on a feature wall, such as a chimney breast, to give character.

Wallpaper Hanging Techniques

Before any wallpapering is carried out on a wall, it is important to ensure that the wall is correctly prepared. At Mark Rogers Decorating we use a dust free sanding system from Festool. This specialist system not only makes sure that the wall is completely smooth but it removes any harmful dust that may otherwise hang in the air.

At this point any holes or imperfections in the wall can be filled and sanded so that they don’t show through the wallpaper when it is placed on the wall. An uneven wall will often show through the paper as shadows which can affect a patterned paper in particular. The wall should also be sized using a 50/50 PVA solution and then lined with a good lining paper if the wall is particularly bad.

Wallpaper hanging is an art and takes a keen eye to match up the patterns and keep a good straight edge. Cutting around light switches and plug sockets can also be tricky as well as behind radiators, which we prefer to remove and drain before we start anyway.

Many rooms which require wallpapering quite often also either have or require ceiling coving fitted which can really compliment a nice paper and give the room an elegant look and feel.
