Tufted wall panels – Includes wood panel on the walls with fabric gives an immediate style update. Even tenants can use the technology, as the fabric is easy to remove and the glue does not damage the walls. If you want a design that is more suitable for long-term use and a bit more stylish, try out paneled panels, or even stuffed panels with tufting.
Wash the tufted wall panels to ensure a clean surface. Use mild soap and water, or a product suitable for wood paneling. Allow the surface to dry thoroughly. Choose a fabric for your walls. Tenants may want to choose a light fabric because it will take less glue to stick to the wall. Using less glue will enable easier and faster removal. Spray the back of the material with starch and apply it to the walls that you would wallpaper, even when walking to remove any wrinkles. Attach the Velcro straps along the wall where it meets the ceiling, and to the upper edge of the back of the material. If necessary, use Velcro straps along the sides of the material.
Paint the lower half of the tufted wall panels. Separate the upper and lower areas of the wall with a strip of wood to create a chair rail. Choose a heavier fabric, which has the thickness of conventional wallpaper. Try to choose a cloth that can be wiped with a wet cloth for easy cleaning. Wipe a thin layer of wallpaper on the wall before applying the fabric. Apply fabric, even out wrinkles as needed.
