Things to look out for when buying Wallpapers in Singapore
Cheap alternatives for wallpapers are all over the net. They tempt homeowners in with cheap prices but these low quality products can often result in disastrous effects over the long run. I.e Long term damage of your walls, leaving of residues during removal etc. Before you buy your wallpaper, here are some things you should look out for:
– The Wallpaper’s Country of Origin
Before purchasing your wallpaper, check with the supplier the wallpapers’ country of origin. Wallpapers from countries such as Germany and Italy have been known to be of higher quality and generally have been more intricate in terms of design and texture.
– Whether the Wallpaper has Quality Approval
Upon completion, wallpapers are usually up for quite a period of time. They would then also be exposed to natural elements such as dirt, dust, sunlight and if you are putting in near your window, rain etc. It is hence important to make sure that the wallpaper you put up is safe for you and your family. Look for quality labels such IGI Quality mark which is the industry standard governing wall coverings.
-Whether the Wallpaper’s Backing is Woven or Paper backed
When choosing your wallpaper, do also check whether it is paper backed or woven backed. Paper backed Wallpapers are common but when you do eventually want to change/remove them, it is generally harder to come off and might even leave paper residues on your wall. Woven backed wallpapers generally come off easier and does less damage to your walls.
