For anyone seeking to personalize areas of their home or office, here is a tip. Take a good look at what a beautifully designed, easy to apply vinyl wall design can do for that special place, special wall or special room. The vinyl wall design market is booming and with good reason. For a very reasonable price, you can receive a vibrant wall design from any number of themes. These designs will bring that special place to life and even better will provide unexpected durability and flexibility.
Vinyl wall designs are built with the customer in mind. Each order is precision-cut with special cutters guided by computer software. Selections are huge and verbiage or slogans can be added to enhance the theme. The designs are produced on high quality Type II commercial-grade vinyl wall covering and are extremely durable. All vinyl wall designs exceed fire code ratings for interior applications.
Indoor vinyl wall designs are guaranteed for life. Exterior designs are guaranteed for 3 years unless installed under an awning, in which case the guarantee is longer. In most cases, vinyl wall coverings can be removed and re-used. Simply use a blow dryer to loosen the seal and remove. Re-install in an area of your choice and enjoy another three-year guarantee. It really is as simple as that. The only complications will come with designs that contain small thin lettering.
In addition to being customized, each mural is created to meet the highest standards that produce uniform results and flawless details that simply cannot be matched by paper murals. Vinyl murals are printed with UV protected inks that discourage fading. Pick out a design, size it to your wall’s specifications and wait for delivery of a perfect match that will last for years.
One of the advantages of vinyl wall coverings is the cleaning ease. The material is virtually tear proof and can be cleaned thoroughly with a mild mixture of soap and water.
To install new vinyl wall coverings, a few simple tools and supplies will be needed. A sturdy, sharp pair of scissors, a stiff plastic card or ruler, an erasable pen and a level are the recommended tools. For supplies, add a roll of masking tape and a damp cloth and the installation process is good to go.
When the vinyl wall design arrives, unroll carefully and lay the design on a flat surface. Starting at the center, use the ruler/card to flatten the design and eliminate any wrinkles by working outwards towards the edges.
Each vinyl wall design consists of three layers; a bottom layer of base paper, a middle layer of vinyl and the top layer of protective transfer tape. The top and bottom layers will be solely used for installation purposes and will be discarded upon completion of the installation.
If the design contains lines of text, scissors should be used to cut a straight, horizontal line between the text lines. The design will be applied in two separate applications.
The damp cloth is used to thoroughly clean the wall to be covered. Once the wall is cleaned, the level and the erasable pen should be used to leave leveling marks on the right and left side of the wall.
Six, three inch cuts of masking tape that can be easily removed should be placed on the wall. Tape together the top center to the bottom center and tape the right sides. The taping should be secure and firm enough to avoid any tilt.
Beginning with the left side, the transfer tape or top layer should be pulled up along with the vinyl or second layer. Once the left half of the base paper is free, the scissors should be used to cut away the left half of the bottom layer. Throw the left side base paper away. Starting at the middle and working upwards, the hands should now smooth the vinyl paper onto the wall. The masking tape should be removed and the same procedure should be followed for the right side.
Once the graphic is completely on the wall, the ruler/card should be used to securely affix the design to the wall. The transfer tape should then be removed the self-installation is complete.
The room will look amazingly different, clean and unique. The cost is reasonable and the value is great. Within minutes, vinyl wall designs can spice up the appearance of any wall or any room with no damage or risk to the covered wall. The new room should spring to life while creating a memorable impression.
