How to Hang Natural Grasscloth Wallpaper

What to Consider Before Choosing Grasscloth Wallpaper

Grasscloth is a type of wallpaper that is made from natural fibers such as jute, hemp, and other grasses. It is usually woven into a coarse, textured fabric to create a unique earthy and rustic look. The grasscloth can be dyed, painted, or stained to create a variety of different colors and textures that can range from subtle to bold. Imagine just how inviting and warm a room papered in black grasscloth could be. Or a room with a more subtle and earthy tone, bringing nature inside with a neutral backdrop. 

Grasscloth wallpaper is perfect for creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere, and even a  great choice when looking to add an elegant touch to any room. With its unique texture and natural beauty, grasscloth offers limitless style options that will last for years to come.

Because it is a natural product, grasscloth evokes a feeling of calm and tranquility. Thanks to its natural fibers, grasscloth can transform your room into a serene and peaceful living space. This will be the room you’ll look forward to spending quiet time in. Let go of your worries and stress in a room papered with grasscloth, where you can visualize yourself lounging on the beach, hiking in the mountains or rambling through a forest. Relaxation has never looked so good.

When you’re considering grasscloth wallpaper, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with not only its unique look and special features, but also with the wall preparation needed before it can be installed. 

You may need to add a base coat, such as a primer, to ensure that the wallpaper adheres to the walls correctly. You will also want to consider the durability of the grasscloth wallpaper. Natural grasscloths are usually more durable than synthetic ones and therefore may be more expensive. And when it comes to installation, in order to avoid damage, special attention must be given to how it is handled. 

Grasscloth wallpaper requires more maintenance than other types of wallpaper, so know that you will need to periodically dust and vacuum the wallpaper to remove any dirt or dust that accumulates. It’s important to know that natural fibers are lightweight and very delicate; sometimes difficult to clean. Some may stain if washed with water. However, natural wallpapers are durable and great for high traffic areas. Grasscloth wallpaper is absolutely a game changer when it comes to wall coverings. They offer a unique and timeless look that cannot be replicated with other wallpaper materials. You’re going to love no matter what you choose because it will be your own personal design statement.

Best Adhesives for Natural and Textured Wallpaper

When it comes to choosing the right adhesive for natural and textured wallpaper, always follow the manufacturer’s hanging instructions. It’s important to take their advice when it comes to recommending the best products for the most professional, flawless, and long lasting installation job. 

Because grasscloth is delicate, you’ll want to avoid getting any adhesive on the face of the paper. Plan on having a pasting table handy, with lots of room to spread out and work very carefully on applying the adhesive to the back of the paper rather than the wall. Most likely you’ll be choosing a clear, non staining, and strippable wallpaper paste. When smoothing the paper onto the wall, a smoothing brush is usually more useful than a seam roller. A smoothing brush will prevent crushing and flattening of the natural fibers and will create a more natural appearance in the grasscloth, without showing any indentations or blemishes. 

Finding the Right Professional

When it comes to finding a professional wallpaper hanger, you want to make sure you hire someone who is experienced and knowledgeable in the field. You should look for a hanger who has a good reputation in the industry and who can provide references from previous customers. Don’t hesitate to call on those references, either. You can ask them questions about not only the quality of the hanger’s work, but their punctuality, respect of your time and clean up once the job is complete. 

Additionally, you should look for a hanger who is licensed and insured, and who has the necessary tools and equipment for the job. It's also important to make sure the hanger is willing to work with you to create a design that fits your needs and budget. Finally, you should ask the hanger for a written estimate of the cost of the job before you hire them, and work out a payment plan. Wait until the job is complete and you have time to inspect it before you give them the final payment. Agree that if there are any issues, the pro will come back and fine tune the job. When it comes to hanging natural fiber wallpaper, you want to have confidence in your professional paper hanger. Confirm that they’ve had experience in hanging grasscloth wallpaper.
