Wallpaperer UK: Certainly more widely used throughout the 1960s and 70s, wallpaper still jumps into and out of fashion for decorating the homes of UK every once in a while. In the last twenty years or so it has been more for use in the decoration of single "feature" walls instead of embellishing all the rooms in the house.
Even though professional decorators can make it appear like it's as easy as pie, wallpapering is certainly not an easy thing to do properly. In order to avoid catastrophes when putting up wallpaper, there are particular steps that must be closely adopted, and an expert will know how to do this to finish the job efficiently.
With a rise in UK home owners opting for the DIY route in regards to decorating, it's not at all surprising that wallpaper has more or less been consigned to the back burner. Painting mostly only requires a couple of brushes and a roller, whereas for wallpapering a room you will require a whole host of equipment and tools.
You're going to require a trimming edge, a seam roller, a paper-hangers brush, a wallpaper smoother, a wallpaper pasting table, a retractable knife, a taping knife, a paste brush, a wallpaper scorer, ladder/step-stool, a plumb bob, wallpaper scissors, scrapers, filling/stripping knifes and a steamer, at a minimum, if you are going to even consider having a go at wallpapering by yourself. If after looking at this scary list, you are having second thoughts about DIY, perhaps the best option would be to hire the services of a seasoned UK wallpapering specialist.
