To give an exotic touch to a room, use bamboo fence rolls instead of wallpaper to cover a wall. It is a lightweight material and the installation procedure is simpler than wallpaper. You will not have to deal with the mess created by the pulp or creases or bubbles in rolls. Another great advantage is that the bamboo fence is much less expensive than conventional wall coverings. In the end, you’ll have a natural looking wall that will give your space a touch of nature and tropical climates. Bamboo fences as wall covering can give life to a living room, basement or bedroom, and may improve a tropical theme.
- Measure the wall you want to cover. Purchase enough bamboo fence roll to cover the desired area. The bamboo fence will be placed vertically, so buy enough to cover the required space.
- Display bamboo fence rolls and extend them to lie flat. Cut bamboo to the desired size with sharp pruning shears. Since bamboo is a plant, pruning shears are suitable for cutting. In addition, the cable-caliber used to keep the bamboo together can also be easily cut with the shears.
- Ask a friend to hold the bamboo fence against the wall you want to cover. Secure it using a staple gun. Staples placed at a distance between 10 and 12 inches (25.4 to 30.5 cm) columns, starting at one end of the fence. The columns of staples should be at a distance of 3 feet (91 cm) away. If the fence feels loose between the columns, simply add more staples. If light enough, you can use viscous glue to secure it in the wall. Moreover, if done with thick reeds, you may need to install strips of wood and put in place with screws. Make test holes and uses high-strength bolts.
- You can give finish to the bamboo fence with quarter round at the part where it meets the floor. Also, you can give finish to the top of the fence with molding. Apply a tint of contrasting color on the molding before installing it to give an interesting look to match the decor of the room. You can even frame each bamboo panel that make up the fence after hanging, using molding. This looks good in a large room, like a basement, because it gives a more welcoming appearance.
