Transition from old to New

Today I’m going to give some details on a fantastic home improvment ideas that you’re going to want to start on right away. This home improvement idea may not be available for everyone but for those who it is available for is going to love this.
Out with the old and in with the new
What is the most visual ugly (today) but widely accepted home decor of the past? Its wallpaper of course and not just any wallpaper, I’m talking about the bright colored flower style wallpaper. I’m not sure what people were thinking back in the 60s but some marketing genius convinced millions of people that bright flowery patterns looked amazing on walls.
Personally I’ve seen some bright pink kitchens that make Martha Stewart designs look tame. However, there is some really good news in this past tragedy.
If you can find a home with this “interesting” feature you might just have a huge opportunity on your hands. People have a very hard time seeing past ugly. They see the ugly, old wallpaper and decide that the house is not something they want, even if the house has great bones.
So you can normally get a house such as this for a discount.
This is great news because removing old wallpaper doesn’t have to be difficult. You can do it in just a few hours with the right tools and wallpaper knowledge at your disposal.
The One Tool You Need
The only tool that I have found that works wonders on old wallpaper is called a wallpaper steamer. This gadget is easy to use and will save you tons of time and frustration. Don’t skip this step, go buy yourself a steamer and thank me later. If you feel like you’ll only use this tool once, then you can always eBay it once you’re done and get the majority of your money back.
The way the steamer works is it turns water into steam and then channels that hot steam through a hose to an application head. You run this head over the wallpaper and it heats up the old glue.
Old glue is stronger than you would think especially when it’s just holding paper. If you attempt to remove old wallpaper without a steamer the paper will come off in tiny little pieces. You will end up having to pick the wallpaper off the wall piece by piece and it will literally take days (maybe weeks) to pick the wallpaper off your walls.
Instead a steamer will loosen up the old glues bonds and allow you to pull large chunks of old wallpaper off the wall. Where picking would take you days, removing chucks will typically only take hours.
One Last Step
The final step once all the old wallpaper is removed is to choose some nice new paint colors and paint away. Most people know how to paint without too much fuss so I’ll leave those detail to another post but I know that once you done, you’ll be amazed at the transformation.
