What’s Best for Your Home Remodel?

Let’s face it. If walking into your living room feels like you time traveled back to the 1970s (ahem, popcorn ceilings), a home remodel might be in order. 

Modernizing your walls or ceiling can effortlessly elevate the style of your home. But what’s the best option for your space? Whether you are looking for a fresh modern print or an elegant and simple white, here’s four reasons why you should consider stretch fabric instead of wallpaper:

1. Fully-Covered Textures

If the goal of your home remodel is to cover up outdated wall textures, wallpaper is likely not the best choice for you. Applying wallpaper over a textured surface can prove tricky. If you are not careful, the texture will show through the paper. The paper will require more starch in order to adhere to the wall correctly. Additionally, lining up panels can be difficult when the wall is not even.

Rather than taking the risk and hoping the wallpaper application is successful, stretch fabric may be a better fit for your needs. Our certified professionals will expertly install your CLIPSO or Novawall stretch fabric for a perfectly smooth surface, no matter the texture underneath.  

2. Safety and Reliability

Adding patterns to walls is an easy and chic way to update a bathroom. Unfortunately, not all wallpapers mix well with water. Particularly in splash-zones (like a kid’s bathroom) or in rooms that are not well-ventilated, finding mold under wallpaper isn’t unheard of.

Luckily, many of our stretch fabric options are resistant to mold and mildew growth and are easily maintained with a mild detergent and light scrubbing. Stretch fabric has a cross weave of material that allows it to breathe, letting air and moisture pass through unobstructed and blocking any unwanted and harmful dust particles.CLIPSO and Novawall stretch fabric can safely be installed in bathrooms, saunas, pools, and other high-moisture areas.

3. Easy Removal

Styles change, and you may find yourself wanting to update your walls or ceiling again in the future. Taking down wallpaper can be a hassle and can damage the wall underneath if it is not done properly. 

Stretch fabric, however, is another story. Because the fabric is installed by stretching it around an aluminum track, it can easily be switched out for another design when you decide it’s time for a fresh look. No need to spend hours peeling every last bit of paper off the wall.

4. Additional Features

Want to really make a statement? Choosing stretch fabric allows for a variety of customization options to make your interior design dreams come true. 

The track frame enables the option of backlighting to set the tone for your space. With a choice between several fabric translucencies that create a varying light effect, we can create remarkably rendered sources of light throughout the room.

Stretch fabrics also come in a wide variety of unique sizes, shapes, cutouts, and in virtually any design that you can imagine to make your vision come to life.
