Today a customer asked me what she could do with 1 roll of our vehicles wallpaper in her son's room. Whether I had some ideas for, for example, a few jobs combined with a beautiful paint color. The wall was quite long and she a whole wall with wallpaper was a bit above her budget. It's true: our wallpaper is a bit more expensive than many wallpaper that you buy in the hardware store, for example. Why? I'lI explain further on, but I fully understand this customer's considerations. And you don't always have to wallpaper a whole wall. You can also make a very cool nursery with just 1 roll of wallpaper. Have a look.
Usually there are 3 strips in a roll of 9 meters of wallpaper, depending on the height of your wall. Apply these strips in the middle of the wall and paint the wall on both sides in a matching color. The paint color above is Tranquil Dawn from Flexa, a nice soft and calm color. Of course you can also go for a slightly darker shade, then the wall will get a little more depth and some wallpaper will pop out a little more. Just what you want. With this vehicle wallpaper, for example, Early Dew from Flexa is also beautiful, just a little darker. See the picture below.
You don't have to stick the strips of wallpaper in the middle of the wall. It can also be fun to create a special corner with it. For example behind a desk or bed. The best thing is if you stick an equal number of strips on both walls, so 1 or 2 on both walls. With us you can also order extra meters of wallpaper, so you can order a roll of 10, 11 or 12 meters and thus take 4 strips out of the roll. That saves a lot of extra buying!
This is the same idea as above, but then you paint the wall next to the wallpaper with chalkboard paint. Super fun for your child and it looks also super cool! See the example below.
If you can cut neatly straight (of course with ruler ;-)), you can also divide the roll into 4 equal strips to make a wallpaper square on a painted wall. The strips do not come from ceiling to plinth, but instead form a square in the middle of the wall. Like this:
Paneling doesn't have to be old-fashioned at all. In fact, paneling is back! But then as 2.0 say. This way you can create a super cool paneling with paint and wallpaper. Wallpaper below and paint above or paint below and wallpaper above. You can do both. Do you think it's difficult to cut the tracks neatly straight? Then you can screw a nice bar on the border. In a beautiful matching color, or of tough wood, whatever you want. You can screw some nice brackets on the bar if you want. Nice and handy for clothes or accessories.

Yes, I promised to say something about the price of our wallpaper. Why it is a bit higher than that of some other brands. First of all, our wallpaper is of very good quality. It is beautiful, soft non-woven wallpaper with a fine matte appearance and it has an FSC and Oekotex quality mark. But what is especially important, is that our wallpaper is only made in very small quantities. In fact, it is printed after your order. In the Netherlands. Our wallpaper does not come with full sea containers at the same time from distant countries where labor costs are as low as possible, with consequences such as child labor and poverty, etc. We explicitly do not want to participate in this. Our method also means less transport kilometers and less waste. So it is better for people and the environment. But that does mean that the cost price is higher and therefore the selling price as well. And yet: by cleverly and creatively dealing with a roll of wallpaper, you can also create a super cool nursery with our wallpaper on a budget.
