Of late, many people are gaining interest in grass cloth wallcovering due to the elegant, natural and sophisticated outlook they offer. These wallcoverings are handwoven using natural fibers such as jute, seagrass, bamboo, raffia, and hemp, to name a few. Unlike other wallcoverings that are made in factories, grass cloth wallcovering is time-intensive to make. That’s why they are considerably more expensive compared to other types.
Before you think of installing these coverings, it’s important to know that the grass cloth doesn’t withstand high traffic or moisture. Therefore, before you install them, you must consider the right location for installation. Humid places such as toilets, bathrooms, and kitchens should be avoided.
Glass Cloth Installation
Usually, the wallcoverings do come with a paper roll with a width of 1 – 1.5 meters. Similar to other types of wallpapers, the glass cloth type must equally be adhered to walls using non-staining adhesives.
• The installation process starts with cleaning the walls and applying the right primer. Using a roller, the adhesive is applied to the downside of the wallpaper.
• The wallpaper is then laid on the wall starting from the top for an easier stripe. Note that the glued surface should face towards the wall.
• Continue working down the wall till the entire stripe is applied to the wall.
• Once installed, grass wallpapers are fairly easy to maintain. Cleaning can be done with a soft duster or brush, but not water.
The process of installing grass wallpapers can seem simple for DIYers. However, if you want to get the best installation, contacting a professional installer is advisable. If you need help in grass wallcovering in NYC, contact Wolf-Gordon and Interior Design or visit http://www.wolfgordon.com/.
