Ways that Wallcovering can Solve Some of your Decorating Dilemmas

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

Have you ever had decorating dilemmas in your house? Here are a few ways that wallcovering can serve as a solution to some of your problems:

Do you have markers, pencils, pen marks, or dog scratches on the wall? No problem! Instead of spending all of that time trying to clean it up, consider fixing it easily with wallcovering, while at the same time decorating your home!

Have you found dents or dings on walls following a little one’s temper tantrum?  If they aren’t too large, wallcovering may be able to solve that problem, too, by covering up those affected areas. However, if you have large holes, you’ll have to patch first.

What if you can’t even paint your walls, if you are renting? Someone who doesn’t have time to paint probably won’t have time to put up wallcovering, either. Wallcovering that is removable and doesn’t leave a residue behind on the wall can solve the decorating problem for renters and for those with lack of time, because it is quick and easy to install, and in most cases, can go over your existing painted finish.  Plus, the wallcovering can be reused at another time and location, even on cabinets or furniture fronts and screens.  It can also be used for bookcase backings, stair risers, and many more decorating projects!

Most of all, if you’re looking for a way to give your home an interior makeover, don’t worry about the time, stress and money of all that is involved (stressing over choosing the right paint and spending time and money picking it up). Casart has numerous designs to offer that anyone can easily install as a DIY project: easy to put up, easy to take down, easy to reuse — as our slogan says, like Slipcovers for your walls!

Casart coverings Goes Back to School

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

With college students going back to school, or even entering their first year of college, there are numerous Casart products that students can use for their single dorms, suites, or even on and off-campus apartments! Casart coverings has products that can benefit many college-bound students.

Style up your room with a Chic Chevron from the Libby Langdon Collection.

Want some privacy in an apartment bathroom? Don’t sweat it! Secret compartments can be added within the wainscotting as a clever coverup to clutter, demonstrated here by Donna Dufresne. What an inspiration for cleanliness! Just ask the landlord first before tackling this type of project. They’ll probably thank you if you do.

What about Faux Tile Stair Risers for an apartment or for a two story room? A before and after picture shows what these risers would look like once the design is implemented.

We have a Faux Padded Headboard with a similar look  seen below and on our Cool Blue Pinterest Board.

Although ours isn’t as bold a color, it creates a peaceful presence in a world full of academic pressure and paper deadlines. Oh, and ours can be customized to any color of your choosing, so go for the gold, blue ribbon or that Tiffany ring. Lots of things to consider with our choices.
