How to mask the disadvantages of wall covering using bamboo wallpaper

It happens that excellent, high-quality and expensive wallpapers suddenly begin to deform at the joints.

Sometimes they frown in the corners.

There are many reasons for this:

  • prescription of repair;

  • room humidity;

  • instability of the temperature regime, etc.

Not always the landlord is ready for a radical “upgrade” of the room. Sometimes he is in a hurry to eliminate shortcomings, for example, to sell or rent an apartment.

Then he resorts to budget options to resolve the problems.

An acceptable way to level flaws

Often in construction stores offer 50 percent discounts on residues and trimming materials. As part of such actions, it will be possible to purchase an incomplete roll of bamboo wallpaper.

You will also need minimal tools:

  • sharp knife;

  • mounting adhesive like "Moment";

  • syringe gun to work with it.

Further actions

Cut the bamboo cloth at the junction of the strips.

Cut the pile on the edging. Lubricate the strips with adhesive.

Attach to wallpaper seams, press. Carefully remove the remaining villi with a blade if they show up.

Wait for the drying and full adhesion of the old and new material. At this stage, you must ensure that there are no drafts.


The wall surface is original. Even with good lighting - both natural and artificial - there are no defects. You might think that such a design concept was originally conceived.


In this case, the color scheme is monochrome, but the contrast also looks interesting. That is, bamboo fragments look original against a colorful, bright or, conversely, very light background. The texture of the main wallpaper also does not matter - it will come out beautifully anyway.
