Add charm to basic kitchen cabinets with wallpaper. It's fun easy so as to add color, texture, and visual interest to an otherwise bland space. Plus, wallpapering cabinets is no longer difficult than covering a wall.
Cabinets are a fundamental piece of any kitchen, however, interiors rarely get much decorating love. With the aid of wallpaper and added basic DIY supplies, you can change the inside of your cabinets from boring to beautiful. We'll tell you how.
What You Need
Step 1: Take off the ShelvesClear out the items in each cabinet you need to wallpaper, then get rid of the shelves. Some cabinets have adjustable shelves which can be simply lifted off of their supports, although some will be more permanent. If you get rid of the shelves, you will need to cut smaller components of wallpaper and go shelf by shelf in lieu of papering the complete cabinet at once. For easier access, consider removing cabinet doors, too.
Step 2: Measure UpWork with a measuring tape to measure the width and length of the back of the cabinet. Add 1 to 2 inches to every single measurement in order to trim as needed. Reveal prepasted wallpaper onto a worktable and mark the needed width and length of paper with a ruler and pencil. Cut out with scissors.
Step 3: Able to AdhereLay drop cloths over kitchen counters and flooring. Roll-up the cut piece of wallpaper lengthwise with your back facing out. Fill a wallpaper water pan with cool water, then soak paper according to package directions—usually just one minute. Guarantee the paper is also wet before bringing it back to your table, unrolling it, and folding it retrace itself with the pattern facing out.
Step 4: Line UpStart in the top corner of this cabinet. You can put premeasured piece of wallpaper about the wall, and smooth it lightly with all your hands until the within is covered.Step 5: Smooth It Out
Secure the paper with a wallpaper brush. This tool will eliminate any air bubbles or wrinkles. Start in the middle, then come out to your edges. Press firmly. Trim any excess paper with a ruler and utility knife. If any paste squeezes out, gently wipe it with a damp sponge.Step 6: Repeat as Needed
Repeat Steps 2–5 until all desired cabinets are wallpapered. Let paper dry 24 hours before attaching shelves and doors, and restocking the cabinet.
