Wallpaperer UK: Whilst it was undoubtedly more popular for the decoration of the homes of the UK throughout the 1960s and 70s, wallpaper still bobs into and out of fashion now and again. Still worth considering when you are redecorating, even during these technology mad times, wallpaper has in recent years seen a resurrection for the adornment of feature walls, rather than the whole house.

Putting up wallpaper, needless to say, is not as easy as painting, although professional decorators will make it look like a cakewalk. In order to avoid calamities when wallpapering, there are specified steps that must be carefully adopted, and a specialist will know how to do this to complete the job efficiently.

With a rising band of property owners in UK settling on the do-it-yourself option in relation to decorating, the reality that wallpapering has been consigned to the back seat is in no way surprising. For wallpapering you'll need to have a range of tools and equipment, whereas a paintbrush and roller is all that is needed for painting.

If you're thinking about trying it yourself you are going to at a minimum need to have a fold-up pasting table, a wallpaper perforator, a seam roller, a wallpaper smoother, a pasting brush, scrapers, a sharp utility knife, a paper-hangers brush, a taping knife, a wallpaper steamer, filling knifes, a trimming edge, step ladder, paper-hanging scissors and a chalk line. If this comprehensive list discourages you in any way, then maybe you should look at getting in touch with a professional UK wallpapering specialist.
