Hanging grasscloth wallpaper can be a little tricky. Wallpaper paste cannot be allowed to seep out between joints because it cannot be wiped off like typical wallpaper. Cutting corners is challenge because heavier grasscloth doesn’t like to bend or mold easily. For all these reasons, it is best to call in a pro…which I never want to do!
This was the case on a recent kitchen/den remodel that called for a grasscloth feature wall. The wallpaper looked great. The same could not be said about the top edge and sides which were uneven at best. The home is contemporary/modern in design so crown and adding trim would have been out of place.
To finish the wall, we trimmed out the top and sides using a fabric bias tape in a darker complimentary color. The end result is a wall that looks upholstered with perfect edges and stunning!
