My Living Room Makeover with Superfresco Easy Wallpaper

We’ve been wanting to redecorate our living room for months. It felt really dated, and in need of a face-lift. The room’s painted, though we’ve wallpaper in the 2 alcoves.

We’d got as far as several trips out to choose wallpaper, but despite being keen, we still hadn’t made any progress…until now.

WhenΒ Superfresco Easy wallpaper got in touch, I though ‘at last!’ It gave us the push we needed to actually make a decision, and the range that we were browsing was just gorgeous. We ordered a few samples, hoping to find one that we liked, and we ended up liking them all and struggling to choose! But, we did make a decision, going for Glade for most of the walls, and then Winchester to cover the chimney breast.

Initial impressions were good. The paper felt nice and thick and good quality. And our favourite thing? It’s paste the wall paper. No need for a paste table, and it’s apparently faster.

I’d read mixed reviews on this, with some people saying they had to still paste the paper, and others saying it worked as it should, so I was unsure what we’d end up with, really. I’m pleased to say that we (OK, so not actually ‘me’ in that ‘we’ but you know what I mean!) did just paste the wall and it was fine. We bought paste the wall paste, so whether that makes a difference, I’m not sure, but it was right there next to the normal paste so I went for that instead.

You see, just paste that wall…

Cut the paper and apply, sponging it down to smooth out any bubbles…

It took the Husband and his dad about 6 hours to do the whole room. The Husband says he feels it is a task you could do alone, as the paste the wall does make it easy, but obviously it’s faster with two. The Father-in-Law, who has wallpapered many a room in his time, was very impressed with the paper, and the technique. They felt it was easy to put up, the paper doesn’t stretch and because it’s lovely and thick, you can’t put your fingers through it and rip it.

The verdict? Fab stuff! We’d definitely use this again in the future. At Β£20 per roll, it’s not the cheapest wallpaper around, but it’s far from the most expensive either, and for the quality, the range on offer and the ease of putting it up, it’s worth every penny, in our opinions.

Have you tried this?

Update November 2018:Β We still have this paper up and it’s still looking good. It hasn’t peeled off or needed replacing at all.

Disclosure: We received the wallpaper FOC for the purposes of this review, but all words and opinions remain my own (and the Husband’s and Father-in-Law’s).Β
