Wallpaper in Mombasa
Demand for wallpaper in Mombasa is high and rapidly rising but there are not enough wallpaper dealers. Not enough Wallpaper shops. In Nairobi there are two or three shops that deal exclusively in Wallpaper and nothing else. In Mombasa there is not a single exclusively wallpaper shop.
The demand for wallpaper in Mombasa is driven by the upward growth of local and international investors in the residential, commercial office, retail and hotel sectors. To save developers and homes decorating with wallpaper time and money Wallpaper Kenya partners with wallpaper installers resident in Mombasa. This saves you time and money for from transporting wallpaper installers from Nairobi.
You can now choose your wallpaper from wallpaperkenya online shop, have a Mombasa resident wallpaper fundi pay you a site visit for measurement and in most cases show you a hard copy catalogue and have the wallpaper installed the following day. Some of our Mombasa wallpaper agents (dealers) do keep stock but if you choose a design that is out of stock in Mombasa stores we can always put it on a Coast bus or any other parcel delivery service that you may advice and have it delivered the following morning.
Even though wallpaper installation is described as a do it yourself project, it is better handled by a professional in humid areas such as Mombasa. Wallpaper Kenya will direct you to such professionals with experience.
The challenges of Wallpaper Installation in Mombasa
If not professionally installed wallpaper can peel off at corners and seams when exposed to the humidity of Mombasa. The second and even worse problem is the risk of mold growth behind the wallpaper which can happen in rare cases. To overcome these it is important to use the right and anti mold wallpaper adhesive. Novices might not be aware of this. Not just any wallpaper adhesive will work well in Mombasa.
Vinyl Wallpaper: The right wallpaper for Mombasa
Vinyl wallpaper works best for humid areas. It has grown in popularity for both residential and commercial interiors and is the modern design tool of choice for interior designers and architects. This is due to its durability in moist areas. Vinyl wallpapers are stronger and easier to clean than alternative products. We have vinyl wallpaper in all kinds of designs including floral, brick wallpaper, plain color but textured wallpaper, damask designs, geometric designs, and many more.
The beauty of vinyl wallpaper is that it is moisture resistant and washable. While vinyl wallpaper will last for decades on the wall in Nairobi it will last less in Mombasa. However you can give it a long life by waterproofing it, especially in Mombasa bathrooms and kitchens as well as other rooms where excess humidity and moisture collects. To do this, apply coatings of water-based varnish, emulsion glaze or primer to the wallpaper. Do this at a time of the least moisture.
