wallpapering

Wallpaper is coming back into style with many of our domestic and commercial customers choosing to hang wallpaper instead of painted feature walls.

As painters and decorators, Red’s Paint and Paper Ltd provides a full wallpapering installation service, throughout Greater Auckland, specialising in conventional wallpapers, embossed wallpapers, and vinyls.

45-Years of Painting and Decorating Experience

Wallpaper is the perfect way to create a unique and compelling look within a room. From traditional patterns, to modern and sophisticated, to bright and fun, there will be a wallpaper to match your style and the theme of your home or business.

To get the perfect look, however, the wallpaper needs to be installed carefully and skilfully. We have over 45-years’ experience in painting and decorating. In that time, we have developed a reputation for product knowledge and expertise that enables us to hang any pattern in even the most challenging rooms.

We also provide wallpaper removal service and wall preparation service.

Things to think about when wall papering

Preparation is the key
We all know preparation is the key when painting walls but what about wallpapering? Wallpaper will hide every blemish, right?
Wrong. While some aspects of preparation are easier, bumps and hollows will often show under a wallpaper, especially in bright light.
That’s why we take time to remove your old wallpaper, and patch and smooth your walls before we begin to paper. That way, we get a great result, every time.

Choosing your wallpaper
There are many different types of wallpaper and wallcoverings available today. Choose one that is suitable for where it is to be hung. Vinyl wallpapers are washable so perfect for areas where walls might get marked, e.g. kitchens or children’s bedrooms. Other papers are more hard wearing and so are great for commercial buildings where there might be a high degree of wear and tear.
We will come to your place to give a free measure and quote for your wallpapering project, and to advise on the best type of wallpaper for your wallpapering project.

Custom images are available
These days, thanks to digital printing, almost any image can be made into wallpaper. That means, you can make a feature wall in your home using whatever image you desire. For wallpapering in commercial premises, it means we can hang a wallpaper bearing your company logo or in your company colours.
If you are interested in bespoke wallpaper designs, we can recommend a good printer and then complete the wallpapering project for you.

Know where to begin and end
In general, you can minimise the visibility of seams by starting in the area opposite the most-used entrance to the room. If you are hanging paper that has a repeatable pattern, the pattern on the last seam will not usually line up. Try to hide it in a low-visibility area, e.g. the best spot is usually the corner just above the point of entry.
