Performance Vinyl Wallcovering Adds Durability

When choosing a Phillip Jefferies performance vinyl wallcovering for furniture decoration, it's important to consider the durability and adhesive properties of the material. Not only are they inherently easy to clean and maintain (Ours are wipeable and antimicrobial!) but they are also easy to work with. Once positioned, they can be easily repositioned if needed. This will make the wrapping process much smoother and ensure a professional-looking finish.

Performance Vinyl Wallcovering Is Customizable
One of the great advantages of using vinyl wallcovering for furniture decoration is the ability to customize the design. Whether you want a sleek metallic finish or a textured look, there are various techniques you can use to achieve your desired aesthetic. Consider using stencils or decals to create patterns or designs on the vinyl wallcovering. This can be a fun and creative way to add visual interest to your furniture. You can also experiment with different colors and finishes of vinyl wallcovering to create a unique look. Mix and match different textures and patterns to create a statement piece that stands out in your home decor. Our London showroom has a few pieces of custom furniture designed by Justin Van Breda that showcases our naturals.

Don't be afraid to get creative and think outside the box when customizing the design of your vinyl-wrapped furniture. The possibilities are endless!


Important Steps To Prepare Furniture For Wallcovering
Before applying the vinyl wallcovering, it's important to properly prepare the surface of your furniture. Start by cleaning the surface with a mild detergent to remove any dirt or grease. If there are any rough patches or imperfections, you may need to sand the surface lightly to create a smooth and even base for the vinyl wallcovering. Make sure to remove any hardware or fixtures that may interfere with the wrapping process. This will ensure that the vinyl wallcovering adheres properly and creates a seamless finish. Once the surface is clean and smooth, you can proceed to the next step of applying the vinyl wallcovering.

How To Start Wallcovering A Custom Piece Of Furniture
Start by measuring and cutting the vinyl wallcovering to the appropriate size for the furniture piece you are wrapping. It's important to leave some extra material for overlapping and trimming later on. Next, apply a thin layer of adhesive to the back of the vinyl wallcovering using a roller or brush. Make sure to evenly distribute the adhesive to ensure a strong bond with the furniture surface. Carefully place the vinyl wallcovering onto the furniture, starting from one end and working your way to the other. Use a squeegee or a smooth, flat object to remove any air bubbles and ensure a smooth and wrinkle-free application. Once the vinyl wallcovering is in place, use a sharp knife or scissors to trim off any excess material and create clean edges. Take your time to ensure precision and accuracy in the trimming process.

Finally, apply pressure to the vinyl wallcovering to ensure a secure bond with the furniture surface. Use a clean cloth or roller to gently press down on the entire surface, paying extra attention to edges and corners. Allow the adhesive to fully dry and set before using or moving the furniture.

With proper care and maintenance, your performance vinyl-wrapped furniture will continue to look amazing for years to come.
