install glass beadsGone are the days of boring interior backdrops inside our homes because we have come a long way when it comes to colorful and wonderful wall covering. As the selection in this department use to be rather slim, there are presently plenty of possibilities to pick from for prettying up the walls inside your home.

One of the latest interior remodeling trends is glass beads, which is a cool, decorative wallcovering that comes in a few different forms and several styles. It of course contains real pieces of glass though they are smooth so it’s a safe material. Plus, it’s an earth friendly product as it is PVC, heavy metal, and formaldehyde free, therefore, it’s an ideal interior solution.   

If you are a do-it-yourself kind of homeowner, then installing glass beads is something you should be able to complete with no problem. Who knows? You might even enjoy it! Also, depending upon the size of the wall or area you are working on, you may want to get your hands on a helper, which always makes things move along more swiftly with any sort of remodeling. 

After selecting a style, you may want to start installation with a small section in order to be sure that it’s suitable before continuing. This is wise to do with any kind of wallcovering, as you’ll probably be living with it for quite a while.

Next, apply the adhesive, unless it’s a  peel and stick product then you won’t need any. Lastly, using your clean hands, roll it out on the wall, beginning at the top and working to the bottom, be sure there are no air bubbles, wrinkles, or overlaps in the pieces. Then, wipe it down with a warm wet rag, let it dry, and you’re done!

Would you like to learn even more about glass bead options and the installation process? Then you should seek the assistance of an expert who will be able to provide you with the proper advice. In fact, if you like the look but prefer to leave the supply and installation to a interior painter, you can do that as well, which means a lot less work for you, while still getting the wallcovering results you want!
