6 types of liquid wallpaper

Why choose liquid wallpaper for decorating rooms? Habitual paper wallpapers, like films, require professional skills and an even wall covering. Liquid coating is a special composition that resembles decorative plaster.

The mixture consists mainly of natural cellulose or cotton fibers, dyes and adhesive composition. Thanks to such components, the material exhibits antistatic properties and meets fire safety standards.

Cotton liquid wallpaper


Cotton liquid wallpaper is made from natural material. They have a soft texture and comply with environmental safety standards. The composition includes: 98% – cotton, 2% – mica, cellulose, textile fibers. They are a rough surface with a thickness of 1-10 mm.

This type is mainly used in the decoration of children’s rooms, bedrooms, office space. Interesting patterns and stucco are common. The advantages are non-toxicity and safety. Also, they do not bubble and after years do not move away from the walls.

When decorating children’s rooms, decorating the wall with pictures from children’s fairy tales and cartoons will be an excellent solution. Applying such a pattern will be a simple task, and when deformed, it is easily repaired.

When choosing a color scheme, there will be no difficulties – manufacturers offer up to 240 ready-made shades. If the right one was not found, then it is possible to mix the corresponding colors.

Silk liquid wallpaper


Finishing with silk liquid wallpaper resembles an expensive fabric. The composition includes both natural and artificial silk fibers, mineral fillers, colored quartz and the required decorative additives.

Being a variant of expensive decorative plaster, this coating is universal. It is used in residential, administrative and commercial premises.

For fans of silk-screened vinyl paintings and Venetian plaster, liquid wallpaper is a godsend:

  • relatively inexpensive cost;
  • durability (from 5 to 10-12 years, depending on the care and presence of the protective layer) and strong adhesion to the surface;
  • excellent maintainability;
  • smooth surface without seams;
  • use in rooms with a high level of humidity. In such cases, it is necessary to cover the dried composition with a layer of special acrylic varnish. Otherwise, the coated areas are washed off with water;
  • when applied, it is easy to combine with other types of finishes: paint, cork, gypsum stucco and others.

Decorative painting on the walls is suitable for most interiors. Fantasy in this matter can not be limited by anything and feel free to choose your favorite ideas. Liquid wallpaper gives room for experiments with colors, textures and ornaments.

The use of cold scales increases the space of the room, and warm – creates a comfortable atmosphere. To create the desired shade, the required dyes are added to the mixture.

The basis for the future picture is applied with a clear line using bright pencils or colored felt-tip pens. If there are no artist skills, then stencils are common. You can make them yourself, buy ready-made or order.

If we compare liquid, photo wallpaper on film or vinyl, the solution depends only on the specific wishes of the customer. It will be problematic to clearly reproduce the picture or photograph you like in a “wet” way and will require a long professional work. For liquid wallpaper, abstract or simple compositions are more suitable.

At the same time, if pets or children live in the house who can damage the coating, the choice is obvious. You do not have to remove the whole canvas and then join the drawing. The process of replacing the damaged area will take a couple of hours and will last for many years in the future.

For a “wet” coating, it does not matter whether it is applied to a vertical or horizontal surface. On the ceiling, it is possible to create three-dimensional patterns and stucco molding or make a surface with different textures.

The method of application and preliminary preparation of the surface repeats the processing of the walls. Particular attention will have to be paid to reliable bonding with the base. Despite the positive reviews, in this situation it is still worth puttingty and leveling the base.

Liquid wallpapers have a wide range of colors and textures and are distinguished by reliable adhesion to the ceiling surface. The thickness of the application layer varies from 1 to 5 mm, which is important for unevenness.

Liquid wallpaper in the hallway

The first impression of guests each time is formed by the appearance of the hallway space. The main problem of this zone is the constant exposure to dust and street dirt. Therefore, the most important task will be the correct choice of finishes. For a climate with difficult weather conditions, this type of finish will be the most reliable solution.

A variety of material for the hallway should have the following qualities:

  • resistance to damage;
  • water-repellent surface for regular cleaning;
  • the possibility of restoration.

The task for covering the corridor will be a complex configuration, the presence of convex and concave surfaces. Paper webs will cope with this problem, but will create unwanted seams, which will manifest itself in further use. Apply without joints, hide gaps, cracks and minor defects in walls and ceilings.

In case of damage, the defect can be repaired quickly and at minimal cost. You will need to wet and clean the area from the damaged fragment. Next, apply the diluted mixture. The result of the work will merge with the rest of the surface.

This type of finish itself is washed off with water after completion of work, and if both dry cleaning and wet cleaning are planned in the future, take care of an additional top coat of varnish. This will strengthen the surface and close the porous structure, which will prevent dirt particles from getting inside.

There are specialized water-repellent mixtures on the market. In practice, they are used for kitchens and bathrooms, but if necessary, they can separate the part of the hallway that is prone to pollution.

The corridor is an intermediate zone between the hallway and the rooms. The sun’s rays are already penetrating these areas, which, without proper protection, will lead to fading of the surface. This should be taken into account when choosing the type of wallpaper.

To create the interior of the hallway, cellulose-silk compositions are suitable in terms of parameters and price. They will create a harmonious transition from the hallway area to the living room and bedrooms. The presence of silk fibers will prevent fading, and adding decorative elements to the mixture will create an elegant design.

When using specialized colors create almost any shade. Pastel colors are traditional for decorating the bedroom. You can decorate the walls with patterns and drawings.

The desired effect with sparkles, highlights or melange is achieved by adding decorative additives or by combining several mixtures with different compositions on the wall.

When choosing an option for the living room and bedroom, it is taken into account whether the apartment is located on the sunny side or not. For the living room, silk is better – they will not fade. They look like decorative plaster. In a darker room, combined compositions will look good.

  • The following positive qualities of the coating are useful in the bedroom:
  • increase in heat and sound insulation;
  • antistatic;
  • environmental friendliness;
  • even coverage;
  • the ability to create almost any style in the interior.

Loft apartments will create comfort and warmth. In the classic – they will add modernity, while not violating its rules. High-tech experiments will also be successful.

Alignment and priming of the walls is necessary when choosing liquid wallpaper with a thin layer of application and a light shade (to avoid translucence of dark spots on the wall). Cotton ones have a looser surface than silk ones, so they hide defects better and lay down in a thick layer up to one centimeter.

Dust and dirt should be removed with a vacuum cleaner or soft brush. It is allowed to remove stains with a damp cloth if there is varnish protection on top of the layer. Otherwise, the damaged area will have to be replaced.

Liquid wallpaper is easy to apply and unpretentious in operation. Even a non-professional can apply them. A variety of shades allows you to create author’s drawings and patterns. The presented types of this coating do not burn and do not emit toxins, do not accumulate odors.
