    Michigan’s Professional Wallpaper Hanger

Barry Bernau and Son

My two most important jobs in life – craftsman by day & Dad by night. I never sleep… almost.

About Bernau Designs – Barry Bernau is the owner of a professional wall covering installation and wallpaper removal service company located in Troy. We proudly serve Birmingham, Bloomfield, Rochester, Northville, and the surrounding Detroit metropolitan area. Please call us for your next wallpaper project.



I started my career as a wallpaper installer, also known as a ‘wallpaper hanger’, at the age of 12, working summers for my dad pasting wallpaper and matching light switch plates. Shortly after those summers, I ventured out to start my own business, Bernau Designs, in 1990.

My career has taken me from hanging wallpaper to faux finishing to working as a scenic artist on a movie set, to working on the Nuclear Cowboyz and Disney on Ice shows for Feld Entertainment, to writing my first iOS app that made The UK Telegraph’s ‘The 30 best property apps‘ – all the way to doing the best wallpaper job you will ever see!”

A Passion for Hanging Wallpaper

Through the years, I have worked with many talented people, from designers to builders to those who were constantly perfecting their craft or trade.

Someone once asked me, ‘What does it take to do a good wallpaper job?’ My response was, ‘Pride… pride and a love or passion for what you do.’ Pride because my name is associated with my work. My work reflects who I am. Love because that is what drives you to work late nights and get up early in the morning.

I believe there is a common thread among those who are successful and the best in their respective industries. What distinguishes those people from the rest is pride in oneself and a love or passion for what they do.

I have learned something from them all!

Equally useful is this “simplified wallpaper estimator” by decorator Barry Bernau. It lets you calculate the wall space to be covered, then tells you how many rolls you need.
