Wallpapering – Harder than you think…
Wallpapering – Harder than you think… Harmony Decorating are often asked by customers to hang wallpaper for them, which is unsurprising, given that there’s a lot more to it than just applying paste to the walls.
This was certainly the case recently while providing decorating in Maghull when we were asked to hang striped wallpaper up a staircase to create a feature wall in an open-plan living room.
We noticed during the consultation that, from the sofa, the paper could be seen through the gaps in the banisters, which could offset the pattern’s look if it wasn’t aligned correctly. The customer hadn’t thought about it until that point, but agreed with us and asked us to go through with our recommendation.
Before we started, we took care to measure up the staircase as precisely as possible, to align everything up properly, and regularly checked our progress after each length was hung from multiple viewpoints, down stairs as well as upstairs, during the wallpapering projectso we could put right any issues before it was too late
All this extra attention really paid off and the finished wall looks fabulous. The customer was very pleased with the final result, and was especially grateful for the advice we provided, helping them to achieve the desired look in the living room.
This goes to show that being a decorator is about more than just applying paper or paint to walls, but is also about giving customers the benefit of your experience. Your customer’s decorative scheme is important to them, so any professional advice you can give to make it as effective and impressive as possible will be really valued, and will set the project a step above the rest.
