These days, if you are looking to redecorate your home, you will be able to choose from a wide array of different wallpapers. You will also find a large variety of wallpapers to suit every taste and lifestyle. The art Deco period is often referred to as the Art Deco movement, for its emphasis on vibrant colors, dazzling geometric shapes and luxurious furnishings. This time period saw the birth of some of the most beloved works of art. They have now become popular wallpapers, with their quirky yet attractive appearance.
There are many different ways in which these peel and stick decors can be applied onto your walls. The first way is simply to peel off the protective coat on the backing. After this has been done, simply peel off the paper backing, leaving it exposed. This is the most basic application method, but some people prefer the more professional approach. For this, you will need a stick Deco wall cover that contains an adhesive strip along one edge, as well as scissors, paints, brushes and so on.
A word of caution about using art Deco peel and stick wallpaper, especially if you are intending to cover large areas of wall space. While it is relatively easy to apply deco peel to stick wallpaper to larger areas, if you are planning to cover a relatively small area, then you will probably do better with a piece of plain paper or cardboard. It is also advisable to apply deco peel and stick wallpaper very slowly, to ensure that it adheres properly.
If you have decided to use peel and stick wallpaper, then you will need to prepare the wall for the treatment. If your walls are painted, then you will need to remove the previous painting, in addition to any previous accents or paint colors. After this, you can prepare your wall by using a good primer to help seal the wall and give it a smooth surface. It is important to prime the wall, as any imperfections will be obvious once the deco peel and stick wallpaper are applied, making it look unsightly.
Once the wall is prepared, the deco peel and stick application tool should be laid on top of it, with the applied side facing up. The brush is held securely on the wall until the deco peel has dried. At this stage, the color will most likely be visible, but not necessarily in a thick or vibrant way. If you want to add highlights to a particular area, you can lightly touch up the area using a paint bristle or brush, which will lighten the wall and even out the highlights. However, be careful to avoid smudges or cracks in the paint, as these will clearly be visible once the deco peel has completely dried.
Once the deco peel has dried, a new coat of paint can be applied to the entire wall. Once the entire wall is painted, it should be dried thoroughly before removing any trim or molding. Finally, if desired, you can use a finisher to give the walls a nice shine. If you wish to apply this treatment in an apartment or small area, it is wise to allow the walls to dry thoroughly between coats of paint, especially if you intend to move any of the partitions.
