Why Summer Is My Favorite Time To Wallpaper (Or Re-Wallpaper!)

As the temperatures rise and I begin to obsess over the water saturation content of my outdoor porch planters, there’s no denying the allure of summer in all its glory. Vibrant colors everywhere, longer days and endless activities I actually *want* to do… but what does this have to do with wallpaper?

Everything, actually! I firmly believe summer is the best time to wallpaper, or re-wallpaper your house. And a lot of people tend to agree, making this our busy, busy, busy season! So if you’re on the fence about going for the wallpapered walls of your dreams, read on to be thoroughly convinced!

Summer Vibes = Better Vibes

If you’re choosing your wallpaper when vibes are strong, you’re going to make a better choice than if you decide to decorate your home during the doldrums of winter. Think about it, wallpaper makes people happy and happy people don’t… choose ugly wallpaper!

Longer Days, More Light

Natural light is optimal for tackling that wallpaper project you’ve been dying to do. Do it now, I say! Hang up your samples and let the light do its thing. The choice is easy now! Also, more sunlight means better visibility, making it easier to measure, cut, and hang wallpaper with precision (for your installer, that is). Plus, natural light can enhance the colors and patterns of your wallpaper, creating a stunning visual effect that changes throughout the day.

Warmer Temperatures, Faster Drying

Unlike the dampness of winter or the unpredictable weather of spring, summer brings warm, dry conditions that are ideal for wallpaper installation. The higher temperatures help your adhesive dry more quickly, reducing the risk of bubbles or wrinkles forming in the paper. Plus, warmer weather means you can open windows and doors to ventilate the room, speeding up the drying process even further.

A Breath of Fresh Air

Wallpapering can be a messy job, with adhesives, primers, and wallpaper scraps scattered around the room. And let’s face it, you’re going to repaint the trim while you’re at it too. But in the summertime, you have the luxury of working with windows and doors wide open, allowing fresh air to circulate and ventilate the space. Not only does this make the process more comfortable for you, but it also helps to dissipate any lingering odors from the adhesives. You’ll be sleeping in your newly papered room on day one!

From longer days and warmer temperatures to the endless inspiration of nature, there are countless reasons why summer is the best time to wallpaper your house. So why wait? Embrace the spirit of the season, unleash your creativity, and transform your home into a summer sanctuary that's as vibrant and inviting as the world outside.
