BLACK DAMASK WALLPAPER: EXTRAVAGANCE, MYSTICISM AND MODERNITY

Black wallpaper conjures up an extravagant ambience with a touch of mysticism. Black does not have to look sad and dreary, because numerous cool black wallpapers in our online shop inspire with cheerfulness and unusual design. Black or anthracite wallpapers in authentic material or natural looks are particularly suitable for urban interiors. Stone wallpaper is ideal for a modern loft look, metal looks lend themselves to interiors in industrial style, while a wide variety of textures lend themselves to interiors in the trendy shabby chic style.

 

In order not to make the room too dark, it is a good idea to use black wallpaper as a highlight or to create contrasts by wallpapering only one wall. In our online shop, you will find not only plain black wallpapers but also fancy patterned wallpapers in black. Baroque wallpaper in black, for example, delights with its exclusive combination of historical elegance and modernity. 

 

Various graphic and geometric wallpapers conjure up a very serious and dignified flair, while unusual motifs such as skulls provide youthful accents. And black floral wallpapers also enchant with a stylish composition of delicate nature and deep black elegance.

 

MATERIALS OF A BLACK WALLPAPER

If you decide on black wallpaper, you have the choice of various materials. Basically, a distinction is also made with black wallpaper between the backing material, which adheres to the wall, and the surface, which is responsible for the look, feel and respective care. For the backing material, a distinction is made between paper wallpaper and non-woven wallpaper. Paper wallpaper is not only very inexpensive but also convinces with good breathability and sustainability.

 

Non-woven wallpaper is characterised above all by its quick and easy application. Thanks to its ideal dimensional stability, non-woven black wallpaper is very robust, so you can also use it as bathroom or kitchen wallpaper, especially as it is water-resistant and permeable to air and vapour. In addition, non-woven wallpaper is flame-retardant and is very easy to remove dry from the wall, should you decide at some point to buy a new black wallpaper from our online shop.

 

BLACK VINYL WALLPAPER

With vinyl wallpaper, heated and foamed vinyl is applied several times to a non-woven backing. This makes your new black wallpaper not only very scratch and impact-resistant but also provides a special look and feel. In addition, vinyl wallpaper is also suitable for the bathroom or kitchen, as it is water-resistant and scrub-resistant

 

However, you should make sure to air it regularly when applying it in the bathroom. Thanks to its good light resistance, however, you don't have to worry about your new black wallpaper losing colour intensity.

A BLACK TEXTURED WALLPAPER

Black textured wallpaper can have a backing of non-woven or paper. So you can choose between easy application and a cheaper alternative. Sometimes a textured wallpaper also has a vinyl coating, which makes the black wallpaper a little more robust. 

 

However, the vinyl here has not been processed quite as elaborately as with vinyl wallpaper, so that a textured wallpaper is also not quite as hard-wearing. However, you can also clean a structure carefully with a damp cloth and also apply it in rooms with increased sunlight.

WALLPAPERING HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER WITH BLACK WALLPAPER!

To put your new black wallpaper on the wall, you only need the usual commercial utensils, some of which you will find in our online shop under the category "wallpapering tools". However, depending on the chosen backing material of your black wallpaper, the method of application differs slightly. 

 

Regardless of the chosen backing material, however, you should first measure your walls so that you can order the right number of wallpaper rolls. Ideally, allow for at least one more roll, especially if you choose a patterned wallpaper with a staggered approach. Also, note here that the wallpaper must be offset upwards or downwards by the offset specification in each case.

 

Cut the wallpaper strips to size according to your wall measurements. Leave about five centimetres at the top and bottom so that you can cut them off exactly at the edges of the wall when the black wallpaper finally adheres to the wall. Mix the paste, avoid lumps, and make sure your walls are as smooth and dry as possible before you start wallpapering.



APPLYING BLACK NON-WOVEN WALLPAPER TO THE WALL

With non-woven wallpaper, you can apply the paste directly to the wall, saving you soaking the wallpaper strips and setting up wallpaper tables. Use the following steps to apply non-woven wallpaper in black to the wall:

 

  1. Spread the paste as evenly as possible on the wall with a tassel. It is best not to work on the entire wall yet, otherwise, the paste will already dry in the back area.
  2. Take the first strip of wallpaper and place it in the upper corner of the wall exactly at the edge of the wall and ceiling. 
  3. Using a wallpaper brush or a sponge, smooth the strip of wallpaper onto the wall from top to bottom.
  4. Proceed in the same way with the following strips of your black wallpaper. When choosing a patterned wallpaper, make sure that the pattern always matches perfectly.
  5. Wipe off any excess paste from the wallpaper quickly.
  6. You can remove any scars or air bubbles with a scar roller and a pressure roller.

 

APPLYING BLACK PAPER WALLPAPER TO THE WALL

Since the wallpaper strips of a paper wallpaper have to soak with the paste for about five to ten minutes before they can be applied to the wall, a little more caution is required when applying a black wallpaper made of paper, as it can tear more quickly. Keep the soaking time approximately the same for each strip of wallpaper and also use approximately the same amount of paste. Use the following steps to apply black paper wallpaper to the wall:

 

  1. Spread the paste evenly onto the first strip of wallpaper with a tassel and carefully lay it loosely together into a small package, placing backing to backing and surface to surface. From this point on, the soaking time begins.
  2. While the first strip of wallpaper is soaking, you can move on to the next strips of your black wallpaper.
  3. As soon as the soaking time for the first strip of wallpaper has elapsed, apply it to the wall by first unfolding only the upper part and smoothing it onto the wall with a wallpaper brush or sponge. Only when this adheres well do you also unfold the lower part and smooth it onto the wall.
  4. Here, too, it is essential to observe the respective design for the following strips.
  5. Wipe off any excess paste on the black wallpaper quickly.
  6. Any scars or air bubbles can now be smoothed out with a scar roller or a pressure roller.
