Wallpaper Installers Brisbane - Wow Wallpaper Hanging

We have had an amazing year as wallpaper installers in Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
It's so exciting to see people using this beautiful medium to create visually stunning spaces within their homes and businesses.

The amazing thing about wallpaper is it is so individual. There are literally thousands of designs to choose from so coming up with something to suit your interior should be easy. Actually no, it probably will be hard to actually narrow down the choice to just one design.

In 2014 we saw a lot of feature walls being wallpapered to create a real "wow factor". Everything from contemporary walls with large bold patterns right through to traditional damasks and stunning murals. It's also good to see people getting a little more daring and using wallpaper on more than just one feature wall. A lot of people experiment at first with a feature wall but quickly see the great results and want more.

As Brisbane wallpaper installers we have traveled all over the city wallpapering houses, apartments, new homes and renovations. It's been great to see so many transformations but the best part is the look of amazement on our clients faces when they see their beautiful wall. They can't wipe the smile off their faces which is very satisfying for us.

In 2014 business owners took to wallpaper like ducks to water. The smart business owner can see how just one feature wall of wallpaper can so easily and instantly add that special point of difference to their business. Changing the entry and interior to a shop, cafe, restaurant etc makes the space inviting and enticing. Customers want to enter that space and feel welcomed. Wallpaper does that.

Looking forward to an amazing 2015 covering the walls of Brisbane.

The Art Deco style is still popular today and is enjoying a bit if a revival thanks to movies such as "The Great Gatsby"

How To Dispose Of Left Over Paint

 People often ask me what they should do with their leftover paint.
Dulux has a product called Dulux Envirosolutions Waste Paint Hardener. it's an environmental way ofdisposing of paint by turning water based paints into solid waste.
This won't work for oil based paints so it's best to pour the leftovers onto some sort of absorbent material to dry such as shredded paper or kitty litter. Once dry it can be thrown out with the normal household rubbish.

If you have large amounts of paint to dispose of then your local council can advice where to go for this.

Don't hesitate to call Wow Painting and Decorating - Painters on the Gold Coast for any painting information or a free quote.

Interior and Exterior Trims

It's the little things that often count the most. As Gold Coast Painters we know when it comes to painting it's the trims that bring the whole job together and create the finished look that our clients are after.

Imagine the exterior of a house with all the trims painted in the same colour as the house, how boring!!
The trims make the house so choosing the right accent colours for fascias, gutters, soffits etc is important. Don't forget that exterior paint has to be good quality to withstand the elements and that darker colours tend to fade quicker than lighter colours. Lighter colours don't absorb as much heat and light therefore last longer and need less maintenance.

Interior trims are just as important to the finished look. Interior trims are always painted in enamel as it's much more hard wearing and looks better with its shiny gloss finish.

Beautiful, glossy skirting boards, door frames, windows, cupboards or doors are the icing on the cake to transform a good paint job into something spectacular. I've seen it before, cutting corners by slapping on a bit of wall paint instead of enamel. For one it looks tacky and for two it scratches off.

It's official, for looks and durability you can't beat a beautifully enameled trim. For all your Gold Coast Painting needs contact us at Wow Painting and Decorating.
