Dear Valued Customer,

Handyman Connection of Mountain View is committed to providing the highest quality services to our customers. We know that our customers have a choice, and we are grateful for your continued partnership.

For the past several years, Handyman Connection of Mountain View has been absorbing processing and transaction fees related to payments made by credit card. Unfortunately, our costs for credit card acceptance have continued to rise. Credit card rates have continued to skyrocket over the last few years, and more and more credit cards are run with the card not present (phone transactions, etc.). “Card not present” transactions also increase the rate we are charged. The use of credit cards to pay bills has also increased significantly.

Effective April 1, 2023, we will begin adding a 3% convenience fee for all credit card payments. The fee with be added to payments made with Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover to offset the fees charged by the card companies. In accordance with credit card network rules, Handyman Connection of Mountain View cannot profit from this fee, and it does not exceed our expenses associated with accepting credit card payments.

Payments made by check, electronic payment (ACH/EFT), wire, or debit card will not be charged the convenience fee.

We thank you for your understanding as we implement this fee and offset some of the increased inflationary costs we are all incurring. We are happy to work with you on alternate payment options.

The Latest Trends in Wallpaper

As much as the idea of wallpapering may be intimidating or overwhelming, there are some creative, fun looks to really revamp the look and feel of a room. If you’re considering adding wallpaper, or replacing existing wallpaper with a new look, check out some of the trends that our crew at Handyman Connection of Mountain View sees frequently. You’ll notice some ongoing trends that are a fan favorite each year, some retro styles, and some new modern styles in our quick rundown of wallpaper trends.

Texturized/Natural Wallpaper

One of the more popular and incredibly attractive wallpaper designs is paper with texture made of natural substances. This can include wallpaper such as a textured brick, wood, or stone. A lovely dark wood wallpaper looks great in a modern or farmhouse style room. You can also consider adding a brick wallpaper to your kitchen. These styles look the best when complimented with natural textures on the paper, as it can create a nice look without spending as much as installing the actual materials.

Featured Wall

This isn’t as much of a new trend as it is a classic idea. To spice up any room, or create an entirely new feel without putting in too much work, try incorporating a feature wall with accent wallpaper. Use it only on a portion of the wall to give the illusion of a painting or featured area with frames. This style of wallpaper should stand out from the other colors used in the room in order to properly accent the room. Featured walls are usually found in kitchens, living rooms, or in hallways throughout homes here in Mountain View.

Geometric/Geological Patterns

Geological patterns are a little newer to this trend category, but it’s become very popular. This look features mineral and precious stone designs creating a beautiful, elegant look. Along the same train of thought, geometric patterned wallpaper is an ongoing trend. Go as retro, or modern as you like, but most of the time you can’t go wrong with a geometric patterned style of wallpaper.

Matte and Metallics

The matte and/or metallic look and style of wallpaper is an up and coming trend that is gaining lots of momentum. These sleek styles don’t overpower the room, as they are subtle, but glamorous.  They reflect light and are most of the time a little more durable than your standard wallpaper, making these stunning looks last long.

Soft Pastels

A nice subtle pastel wallpaper has become a really trendy way to make a statement in your rooms especially when paired with brighter accent colors throughout the room. A softer shade on the walls of any accent color in the room, will tie it all together nicely while creating a warm welcoming feel.

When it comes time to install your wallpaper, don’t forget to give us at Handyman Connection of Mountain View a call. Our experts specialize in all things home maintenance and we’d love to help you tackle your next project.
