The demand for wallpaper is driven by the upward growth of local and international investments in Mombasa. There is good investments in the residential, commercial, retail and hotel sectors.

For the benefit of those whose might be new to wallpaper, let me explain. Wallpaper is a kind of material used to clad and decorate interior walls of homes, offices, and other buildings. See the picture above. It is one of the most powerful aspects of interior decoration. Due to its variety of visual elements of interior decoration other interior decoration materials cannot compare. Such as color diversity, rich patterns and textures, security and environmental protection, convenient installation, appropriate price, and so on. For centuries it has had considerable popularity in Europe, United States, Japan and other developed countries and regions.
Wallpaper looks like it is new in Kenya. The reason being that for a long time wallpaper was only affordable by Kings, the wealthy and mighty. But due to advancements in technology wallpaper is now affordable. We also need to create a better awareness of wallpaper in Mombasa.

Stocks and delivery of Wallpaper in Mombasa
You can now choose your wallpaper from Wallpaper Kenya online shop. Have a Mombasa resident wallpaper fundi pay you a site visit for measurements and in most cases show you a hard copy catalogue. Finally have the wallpaper installed the following day by the same fundi. Better still you can choose from the hard-copy catalogs right there in Mombasa. Where possible, it is best to choose from the hard-copy catalogs. Reason being that sometime cameras and browsers sometimes do distort soft copy catalog images.
Some of our wallpaper agents (dealers) do keep stock. However, if you choose a design that is out of stock in Mombasa we can always quickly deliver from Nairobi. This is achieved through Coast bus or any other parcel delivery service that you may advice. Usually it take only one day to have the wallpaper delivered.
Wallpaper installation is described as a do it yourself project. However 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
High humidity can cause problems for any type of material, even the drywall in your home. And it is a problem to wallpaper too. If not professionally installed wallpaper can peel off at corners and seams when exposed to humidity. The humidity of Mombasa is high. Another and even worse problem is the risk of mold growth behind the wallpaper. Which can happen in rare cases if not well installed. 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.
Wallpaper and humidity are a concern for Mombasa. The problem is that moisture and humidity can make wallpaper peel off at seams. However living in a humid climate does not prevent the use of wallpaper. As long as proper preparation and application techniques are used. You can even install wall coverings successfully in your bathroom and enjoy it for years to come. Provided you chose the right materials. And the right material, 100% waterproof, for bathroom wallpaper is contact paper. I will revisit that later in this article.
Vinyl Wallpaper: The right wallpaper for Mombasa
One good wallpaper is vinyl wallpaper. Vinyl wallpaper works well for humid areas except in bathrooms and kitchens. Or in the too wet areas. In wet areas 100% waterproof contact paper works best. We will come to that later. Vinyl wallpaper has grown in popularity for both residential and commercial interiors. Certainly vinyl wallpaper is the modern design tool of choice for interior designers and architects. This is due to its durability in moist areas. They are stronger and easier to clean than alternative products. Vinyl wallpaper is available in all kinds of designs. These include floral wallpaper, 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.
Functional wallpaper should first of all be aesthetically pleasing but but also Anti-static. Also Heat Insulated, Moisture Proof, Mold Proof, Smoke Proof, Sound proof, and Waterproof where need be.

Wallpaper for Hotels in Mombasa
You can go for a week in Mombasa without entering a room with wallpaper. In Nairobi, Hotel intercontinental has wallpaper, Serena Hotel has wallpaper. I have just been called, as I was writing this, to go take measurements for wallpaper at 680 hotel. Some rooms in Hilton Hotel have wallpaper. Other hotels in Kenya with wallpaper include Best Weston Hotel. Wallpaper Kenya did wallpaper interior decor for Royal Swiss Grand Hotel and Meridian hotels among other numerous hotels.
Wallpaper—once considered an almost retro choice for grandmothers —has had a renaissance all over the world. Hotels, in particular, have embraced these eye-catching patterns in their décor. Including works in the Majestic Hotel & Spa (or, the “hotel of the arts”) in Barcelona, Spain—and we believe that the walls should be included in this number. Decorator Antonio Obrador selected Asian-inspired designs for the Royal Penthouse Suite, which include a red pattern with gold pagodas. Another world class hotels adorning wallpaper include The Colony (Palm Beach, Florida). Its entrance is dressed with decorator Carleton Varney’s own Jasper Peony. And the other main rooms, including the halls, wear Dorothy Draper’s Brazilliance (the famous banana-leaves pattern).
Now think of how many hotels you have in Mombasa with naked walls. Mombasa is a virgin territory in this respect. That is one huge segment of wallpaper market in Mombasa. Go for it.
