The best cure for the blues - repair. The head is constantly engaged in brute-force options to improve housing and other thoughts do not have time. The last time I pasted wallpaper stunning corridor "under deryuzhku" with large vertical stripes of color. All is good, but some features of the corridor of my apartment always led me in horror. The walls and corners of concave-convex, it is difficult to apply wallpaper butt, then they nalezayut each other, in different directions. Door frames are inserted is not perpendicular to the floor and under 80 degrees, so always there is a problem: what should go in parallel pattern. Start pasting wallpaper from the corner or door, or just pokleit them diagonally to the floor. Seven doors of various sizes and configurations, protruding bearing beams - all of which I remember as a nightmare.
"But - I said to myself - in the rise of capitalism can and should solve the problem" - and with that thought went out shopping.
Today the market of finishing materials is unlimited potential for changes in home interior, office and other facilities, allowing you to express your own design quality, to realize their fantasies.
But the question is: what determine your choice? Paper wall, as well as adhesive tape, require a perfect wall surface, the selection of the picture. If the walls are full of bumps, corners, that our apartments are not uncommon - many times more complicated task of pasting. Wall panels require additional equipment, certain skills.
And here in the next store I come across a booth with liquid wallpaper, and after studying the instructions, call the seller know that liquid wall are fundamentally different from the above materials. Most often, they are a composition of natural cotton or cellulose fibers, dyes and high quality adhesive composition is packaged in a plastic bag. Enough to stir the contents of the package in a certain amount of water and the product is ready for use.

Liquid wallpaper conceal small cracks and defects, fill a gap in the field fit architraves, skirting boards, frames, sockets and switches, have no seams. They are not afraid of curves and jagged walls of the corners (though this can be argued, referring to our favorite apartments). But to get good coverage, the walls should be primed. As a rule, together with the liquid wallpaper offers to buy brand primers. Prices are different, but the cheapest option - a primer the walls or ceiling of zinc oxide or latex paint. It should not cause light to the dark wallpaper primer, it will shine through. Liquid wallpaper can be covered with tubes and batteries, remembering that all metal surfaces must also be insulated, so as a consequence of hygroscopic (ie, ability to absorb moisture) Wallpaper metal can rust, and the spots show up on the surface. In the new apartment (as we know, the new home for several years gives a "shrinkage") final finish is usually set aside. Manufacturers claim that liquid wallpaper can be beautiful and comfortable apartment immediately. Different types of liquid wallpaper vary in fiber structure: some lay down on the wall with a thin layer of 2-3 mm, the other a little thicker - 4-5 mm, they appear more vividly, like a fabric. In the "shrinkage" of the house and the appearance of small cracks due to its flexibility, they are not deformed and do not break.
When a site with severe contamination, he breaks away from the wall and rolled up in its place a new one. However, one should keep in mind that if you smoke in the room and wallpaper for several years, the site with the newly applied coating will look lighter. In general, when covered with a flat surface "from corner to corner" should be used wallpaper of one batch. Unused, but diluted with water the material can be frozen and stored in a refrigerator until the next indelible stain (if you have, of course, there are free refrigerator). Try not to use it for food. And, for example, spots around the circuit, according to information from users who erased an ordinary eraser.
The microporous structure provides heat and sound insulation properties - we can say that the liquid wallpaper "breathe". If you have inflicted on their kitchen walls or bathroom, then as a protective layer of clear varnish is applied. He is not changing beauty coverage, does not allow moisture to penetrate and soot, makes it possible to remove the dirty spots with a wet cloth, but the effect of "breathing" wallpaper disappears, and you might as well pokleit vinyl wallpaper, which will be much cheaper.

Liquid wallpaper - a decorative silk covering for walls, developed by Japan on the basis of natural silk cocoons, cotton fibers. Deposition does not require prior preparation is simple and accessible to everyone. The structure of liquid wallpapers are acrylic binders, which does not cause them to surface-coated old oil-based paints, linseed oil to avoid stretching and the appearance of spots on the surface.
Therefore, the surface under the wallpaper is desirable to coat, especially if it is covered with oil paint or plastic, metal or brick. If you have old paint, areas of varying absorbency and other problematic surfaces, applied waterproof coating based on acrylic binders. It is recommended soil - catch 'Izakriliko "(Spain). You can also use water-dispersion acrylic primer "ASTAR" BAYRAMLAR (Turkey) (packs of 10 and 25 kg), or similar primer for water dispersion binders.
To make the surface more durability and water resistance after drying silk cover, is recommended to apply clearcoat, hardener, such as "Svyatozar."
