PAINTABLE WALLPAPERS

In principle, all types of wallpaper can be painted over. To do this, you only need the right colour and the right tools. But there is an important difference: some wallpapers are created to be painted, so to speak, for example the classic woodchip or paintable non-woven wallpaper that explicitly can be used as a base wallpaper. In the case of other wallpapers the application of a layer of colour is possible, but not planned - neither from the manufacturer nor from you if you buy such a wallpaper.


Wallpapers with stylish design, high-quality printing or an elaborate design should act in all its beauty and do not need to hide under paint. If you do not like the pattern or the colours anymore, it is better to buy a new wallpaper and treat yourself to a change of scenery, instead of painting over the old wall coverings. However, the leading manufacturers, brands and renowned collections offer charming paintable wallpapers with 3D-structure that you can finish in your own style and according to your wishes using a brush and paint pot.


Paintable wallpapers are usually white or show the natural colours of the upper material. In our online shop, you will find paintable non-woven wallpapers and textured wallpapers of well-known providers and product lines, for example of A.S. Création or Rasch. We also offer the special non-woven wallpapers to paint over, that you perhaps already know as a painter fleece, renovating fleece, non-woven base, or wallpaper primer. These are thin base wallpapers made from non-woven material with which you create on each wall a perfect base for the planned wallpapering or painting.


PAINTABLE WALLPAPER IN 3D DESIGN

Non-woven wallpapers belong to the composite wallpaper. As a carrier layer, a mixture of pulp and textile fibres is used. Therefore, even thinner non-woven wallpapers are stable, durable, and long-lasting. They do not deform when hung, do not need to be soaked with paste, allow accurate cutting, and remain permeable (breathable) after the processing. Because of these beneficial properties, wallpaper fans more frequently choose non-woven wallpaper instead of paper or woodchip and are looking specifically for paintable non-woven wallpaper.


Many paintable non-woven wallpapers have an embossed structure, for example, the 3D imitation of a certain plastering technique, wipe or spatula technique. These surfaces provide excellent grip for the paint and are designed to be painted by the manufacturer. There are also paintable patterns, that are also achieved by different structures (higher and lower areas). To make sure the colour sticks, especially older wallpaper should be cleaned and primed, if necessary, before painting.


If you want to paint non-woven wallpapers that have a plastic coating (vinyl wallpaper), you need paints or varnishes which adhere to the smooth vinyl surface. Normal emulsion paint is not suitable. If you want to paint a dark wallpaper or one with a multi-coloured pattern, it might require several coats of paint. Also in this case, it might be a good idea to hang new wallpapers. All non-woven wallpapers and all multi-layered (cleavable) paper wallpapers can be easily removed in entire strips. But the more layers of colour you need to apply, the more work and the higher material costs you have to expect.
