You or your client might have bought wallpaper elsewhere and you are only looking for professional installation technicians. We do help in such circumstances. You either hire our services or if we are busy we refer you.
But our only advice to you here as a professional is that you must know how to install wallpaper. Because it is not rocket science. And so that you may be able to supervise any technician we refer to you.

Professional wallpaper for (other than interior designers), doctors, lawyers…
There are few other places other than Wallpaper Kenya you will find such designs. You will not find them in stock anywhere in the world.
But we do make them on order. And we do it on high-tensile silk fabric that is both removable and reusable. In other words, you can even move the office with the wallpaper. Unlike the regular wallpaper that gets damaged on removal and you cant reuse it.
Since the raw material we use is high-tensile silk fabric, cloth not paper, you will find the custom-made professional wallpaper suitable for use in high-traffic areas.
How are the walls in your doctor’s office’s reception, waiting rooms, and treatment rooms? Are they sterile, and white, with the classic wallpaper of wood chips or fiberglass?
Or are you lucky enough to enjoy more interesting wall décor that makes your time in the hospital more enjoyable?
Designer and professional wallpapers do exactly that and also provide a favorable first impression and a cozy atmosphere.
They can be the deciding factor in determining whether a patient feels comfortable and well cared for.
The psycho-energetic effect of patterned wallpapers with colors or plain-colored wallpapers with structures should not be underestimated.
Spaces that can be unnerving (and sometimes downright scary) such as medical offices and hospitals benefit from the calming effect of designer wallpapers. Because they can help create an atmosphere of peace and relaxation. Cheerful, energizing, and fun wall décor can counteract feelings of indisposition and worry.
The specific professional emphasis of a practice or therapy space can be reflected in the choice of patterns and colors.
Patterns, motifs, and colors of the wallpaper
Professional wallpapers can be used in all businesses, offices, and professional spaces. For example in hospitals, the reception or waiting room, and areas where examinations are carried out with various instruments and equipment.
And in restrooms, and rooms where bandages and drips are applied. Also, of course, in the consultation room itself.
Therapy/treatment rooms can greatly benefit from a wallpaper design that reflects the medical field in question.
To answer the question of which patterns, motifs, and colors are most suitable for a particular treatment facility, both the specific medical discipline and the specific group of patients can be very helpful.
What is the predominant age? Are the patients more likely to be old or young? Are there children present? There are also specific medical specialties for men or women, for example, gynecology.
And what applies to the hospital setting applies also to all other professional fields.
But once you have thoroughly grasped the theory of professional wallpaper installation, you are welcome to Wallpaper Kenya for practical lessons.
Engage professional wallpaper graphic designer
It pays to engage the services of a professional wallpaper graphic designer.
If you disassemble it in stages, then the work of the designer is as follows:
The first stage – immersion in the project and the study of information
First, you give the designer a brief – a document that contains the tasks of the project. And from the brief, the graphic designer learns about your needs the design and its product, its audience, competitors, work goals, and limitations.
The more information the designer has, the more accurate his decision will be.
Here the designer will ask you questions to better understand the features of your brand and the project.
The second stage is the development of concepts
Having studied all the information, a professional wallpaper designer forms a presentation with visual concepts. Each concept consists of an idea and its graphic implementation.
The designer uses a wide range of skills:
- knowledge of the laws of composition and modular grids;
- understanding how color and shape affect emotional perception;
- an idea of how exactly the fonts convey the necessary sensations.
The third stage is the presentation of concepts to the customer
The designer arranges a meeting with you, the customer, and presents his ideas. It is important that each idea is justified and solves the assigned tasks.
You, the client can immediately choose a concept or give comments and edits. In the latter case, the designer makes changes and re-coordinates the concept with you.
Fourth stage – design approval and finalization
The designer finalizes the professionally designed wallpaper layouts, and prepares them for printing, taking into account the requirements.
Professional wallpaper installation services
Although we do offer professional wallpaper installation services, it is not nuclear science, and you too can do it and save money.
Give your commercial space a stylish and welcoming feeling that lasts a long time without frequent cleaning. Abundant in patterns and designs, wallpaper adds texture and life to plain walls and may be preferable to interior paint in most cases.
Wallpaper removal and installation by an experienced contractor like Wallpaper Kenya, however, is a great option for commercial settings. For example restaurants, offices, conference rooms, hotels, medical facilities, retail stores, and more.
We have many years of experience and do the job in an orderly and efficient manner, and properly dispose of all waste.
Old wallpaper that is peeling or has an outdated design will need to be removed before replacing it with new wallpaper. Whether you have a wallpaper that needs to be removed or are considering new wallpaper, or both, Wallpaper Kenya has you covered.

If you wish to learn how to install wallpaper like a professional you can do it by yourself and it is very easy. Before the outbreak of the Corvid19 Pandemic, we used to train artisans in professional wallpaper installation. But we have since stopped for various reasons.

You do not have to pay for transport and upkeeping coming for training to us. Plus you will save time and money on the traveling and accommodation costs. All you need is confidence, time, and patience and you will make it.
But once you have thoroughly grasped the theory of professional wallpaper installation, then you are welcome to Wallpaper Kenya for practical training.
However, if you live outside Nairobi, you will find it cheaper to just buy a few cheap regular wallpaper rolls and train yourself practically.
If you want to come to us for the practical training, you are advised to carry the professional wallpaper tools which are. Or at least have learned beforehand how to use the wallpapering tools here below:
- Wallpaper table, but you don’t have to carry it
- Wallpaper calculator
- Tape measure
- Wallpaper scissors
- Tear-off rule
- Wallpaper brush
- Bucket and sponge or cloth

What do wallpaper installation costs depend on?
Many professionals use the square meter as the unit for calculating their costs. But there have also been numerous cases of prices for “complete work”.
In such cases, the professional has verified the size of your room where the installation will take place. And whether there is furniture to be moved. Or electrical outlets to work on, old wallpaper needs to be removed, and finally, the state of the wall to be covered.
Depending fundamentally on the state of the walls where the paper is going to be installed, the final cost of the work can vary substantially.
To carry out this final cost calculation, you need to provide us with some information. These include photographs, square meters to be covered, height and width of walls, etc. And this makes it easier for us to give you a much more adjusted cost before you hire the job.
Finally, a fundamental factor in calculating the cost is the type of wallpaper. Whether you want regular or custom-made. If you want custom-made, will you provide the artwork?
Although in most cases we can provide you with free artwork, the possibilities are almost endless and the prices, therefore, are also highly variable.
