Styling Safe Havens: How To Remove Your Interior Wallpaper Design
Born as a Libra, I’m naturally an indecisive human being. The same trait applies to how I usually style and decorate my home. I often replace this and that. And most of the time, you would see me replacing my interior wallpaper design every so often. The thing here is wallpapers are so easy to replace. There is no need to waste effort, energy, and time! Plus, you can get a personalise wallpaper and hang it anywhere around your abode.
Getting wallpaper services in Singapore is a hundred times more helpful, without a doubt! But if you want to DIY or take the removal chore, you need the right tools and materials to have a cleaner, quicker, and more uncomplicated job of removing and replacing your wallpaper.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO USE
Removing your interior wallpaper design can vary on two methods, the water liquid stripper method or the water and vinegar method. I usually use the latter, but either is easy to do, and there will be no sweat! For my go-to removing approach, below are the materials you will need.
1. Spray bottle
4. Sheet plastic
5. Putty knife
WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO DO
1. PLACE THE SHEET PLASTIC ON THE FLOOR
Although I will wreak havoc on my walls, I still want to ensure my rugs and floorings are away from the mess. So, before I start removing my designer wallpaper, I place a few plastic sheets around my home, ensuring it is close to the walls.
2. MIX THE WATER AND VINEGAR IN THE BOTTLE
To kickstart my interior wallpaper design removal, I mix equal parts of the vinegar and water in the spray bottle and give it a good shake to ensure the mixture is well-blended.
3. SATURATE THE WALLPAPER
Now, here comes the magical and fun part! Spray the mixture in an area of your interior wallpaper design, and wait and watch until the paper starts soaking off and detaching from your home walls. I usually start with the upper area near the ceiling to get better and quicker access to removing the wallpaper adhesive.
Tip! Be exceedingly generous with the vinegar and water mixture on your walls. The more liquid you spray, the more saturated your personalise wallpaper can get.
4. USE THE KNIFE TO BEGIN THE REMOVAL
Once the interior wallpaper design begins separating from your original walls, you can help expedite the process with the help of a putty knife. Gently PUSH the item under the wallpaper and lift it away. Avoid SCRAPING the paper, as this can also damage your main walls.
5. REPEAT THE PROCESS
Spray a few spritzes on your interior wallpaper design. Let the water and vinegar settle in, and soak the paper for five minutes. Repeat the process with the putty knife.
6. CLEAN UP THE LEFT BITS AND PIECES
Some epoxy resins and other adhesives from your designer wallpaper may still appear. Use the liquid mixture to remove these bits and pieces until you have a clean, blank slate. You can now replace it with a new interior wallpaper design. Yay!
