Partnering with Habitat For Humanity For Wallpaper Border Kitchen Install

Habitat for Humanity teamed up with York Wallcoverings to provide a wallpaper border kitchen install for their latest build in York, PA. We were thrilled to be able to partner with such a great organization. Founded in 1976 as a non-profit, Habitat has worked with volunteers to build affordable housing in not only the United States but internationally as well.  We are delighted by this partnership and the opportunity to work more closely with our neighbors and to make great design more accessible to those in our community.

To offer a pop of color and help bring this homeowner’s vision of a brown and orange themed kitchen life, she selected York’s Coffee Border wallpaper to have installed in her new space. This border, like many of our other wallcoverings, is printed on Sure Strip,® which uses a special adhesive technology making installation extremely easy. Printed on a high-performance water-activated backing, no paste is required on this wallpaper border; simply spray with water to hang!

Here is a look at our before and after photos from the installation.



We recommend two people to hang our Coffee Border in the large kitchen. In less than two hours, the installation was complete. The homeowner was thrilled with the end result and we couldn’t be happier to help her dream kitchen become a reality.
