Liquid wallpaper in the interior of rooms

Liquid wallpaper - one of the varieties of modern finishing materials.

They have a powdery structure and are not sold in the usual rolls, but in boxes or packages. The composition of the powder includes various components: cotton fibers, silk, cellulose, sand, fibers of synthetic origin, binders and dyes. There are varieties that include more exotic ingredients, such as dried algae, wood chips, mica particles of various colors. A variety of compositions makes this finishing material versatile. It is used both at home and in offices, in public places. It is used in various style directions.

When applied, the powder is diluted with water in the required proportions and distributed over the surfaces in a uniform layer. When the wall is completely dry, it becomes textured unevenness - roughness.

Living room design

The living room is the central room of the whole apartment, which sets the stylistic tone for the rest of the rooms. Therefore, its design is particularly scrupulous, wanting to create something original in this room. Especially living room can make liquid wallpaper. It is recommended to choose a wallpaper with a heterogeneous texture, preferably with the addition of granules or flock. This will give a visual resemblance to the plaster. In the living room of the palace style are appropriate coatings of silver or gold tones. “Marble dust” looks very rich and stylish: barely appearing crack-streaks with inimitable deep-seated glow.

It is possible to use glitters (glitter) in the form of straw in the living room.

Original wall with a picture. To do this, you need to purchase or draw a stencil yourself and apply the composition along the contours. With the help of vertical stripes, you can “raise” the ceiling, horizontal lines will expand the room. It is recommended to cover with patterns only one wall. Pictures of large sizes are appropriate in large rooms.

Even without special artistic skills, you can decorate the walls with visual niches for paintings made from liquid wallpaper of a fine structure with a flock or containing a composition with a silk effect.

It is possible to cover the wall, which will be visible from the sofa, with wallpaper having a large non-uniform structure. This will give originality to the room. In the same way, a wall at the head of the bed in the bedroom is distinguished.


To create a cozy and warm atmosphere, you can use wallpaper that resembles textiles. If you add glitter or fluorescent paint to the powder mixture, it will create a special flickering light effect when light rays and glow in the dark enter.It is possible to fantasize a little bit and make the glow effect in separate areas of the wall, for example, closer to the ceiling.

Quite often, bedrooms are decorated in ethnic style. Liquid wallpaper provide unique possibilities of design in this direction - you can create a panel, draw patterns.

Liquid wallpaper allows you to show personal creativity, that is, you can independently arrange the texture, depending on the design of the room, mix shades and additional ingredients.


First of all, it is necessary to decide on the style decision of the design of the kitchen area:

  • In the classical style using calm dull shades.
  • Monochrome wallpapers are ideal for the “loft”.
  • "Country" requires a soft cozy effect wallpaper.
  • For the "Provence" suitable textured wallpaper muted tones.

The use of such wallpaper on kitchen areas has features. Before applying the wallpaper, it is necessary to treat the walls with a special primer, which will prevent the appearance of yellow streaks. After complete drying, additional means are needed to protect against moisture and other adverse effects that are natural in the kitchen.To this end, the wallpaper is covered with acrylic lacquer, antiseptic.

Children's rooms

Liquid wallpaper based on cotton fibers is desirable for children, as they are almost 100% natural. Alternatively, the use of two types of wallpaper, separating the work area from the recreation area. Often, the walls of children with liquid wallpaper decorated with cartoon drawings.

Corridor and hallway

These premises are of secondary importance, but according to their condition, the primary opinion is about the whole apartment, so everything here should be perfect. The complexity of creating comfort in the hallway or hallway is that a significant amount of street dust and dirt gets here. For this reason, special requirements are imposed on the interior: ease of cleaning, maximum stability and durability. These properties have liquid wallpaper.

The color of the wallpaper should be selected depending on the conditions of the room. For a narrow, darkened corridor, beige, pale pink, white and pastel colors are perfect. Bright elements require dosed use. There is no need to put the wallpaper on the entire wall completely. You can cover the bottom of the wall wallpaper, and paint the top or vice versa.The border between painting and sticking with this make out an interesting border.

Quite often in the hallways draw geometric or abstract images.

When you make in the style of "loft" you can combine brick and textured wallpaper, perhaps a combination with masonry.

The walls of the hallway are often damaged, dust accumulates here. To protect them from such a negative impact, protection with a layer of primer or varnish is required.

Secrets of the application

Rules for the breeding and application of wallpaper are indicated on the packages. They need to be carefully studied and implemented. However, there are some nuances that will help avoid possible problems:

  • The diluted mixture must be infused for 12 hours. Mixing during the preparation of the mixture and immediately before use should be done manually. The mechanical action of the mixer can break the structure and it will not coincide with the sample. Apply the mixture with a metal spatula. The pressure should be moderate (not strong and not weak).
  • For a uniform coating of one wall requires one batch (in case of repeated mixing, transitions will probably be visible).Apply the composition, starting from the corner. First two opposite walls are covered, then the remaining 2.
  • The thickness of the total layer should not exceed 4-5 mm: 3 mm for draft layer, 2 mm - finishing. It is necessary to allow the wall to dry for two to three days.

To apply a drawing or pattern, a pencil drawing is first depicted on the wall, after which the mixture is applied with a rubber spatula (2-5 cm) and neatly distributed along the contour lines of the drawing. Then, within 3-4 hours, the applied layer of the first color dries, then another color is applied.

How to care?

Only dry cleansing is allowed! Do not use brushes and wet cleaning!

In the event that any area becomes dirty, it is necessary to wet it and remove the contaminated layer with a knife or trowel. Then apply the updated layer. Initially, the restored part will be different, but as it dries, the difference should disappear or be minimal.

Consumer feedback on this type of decor is only positive. Note the simplicity of the application, the possibility of correcting errors and the implementation of the flight of fancy.
