Tuesday Tip - Wallpapering 101

Good news for pattern lovers and those looking for new ways to add a little flare to their home, wallpaper has made a comeback!  BUT, just because wallpaper is all the rage in the here and now, doesn't mean that it will be here to stay or that everyone has jumped on the bandwagon.    So, it's critical to be thoughtful about the pattern and material you select, and to consider the long term.  You might be in a particularly bold or funky mood, so a chartreuse owl pattern may seem like a great idea, but will you still feel connected to the look in 5 years, or 10?  Also, will future potential home buyers be turned off by it, or by the thought of removing it (we all have or have heard a wallpaper removal horror story, so chances are they have too).  Plus, even though there have been some advances in the manufacturing of wallpaper that have made it easeir to hang, it can still be a daunting project for even the most seasoned do it yourselfers. 

Bottom line, wallpaper can be a good look, but it can also be tricky, so today's Tuesday Tip offers some great advice for tackling your first wallpapering project.  Thanks to the Zillow blog for sharing this important information!
