Wallpaper has become a popular wall decorating choice and there’s a wide variety of options available. But with so many options available, choosing which wallpaper to decide on can seem a difficult task.
First you have to find the right colour and shade to match the rest of your room interior design scheme, then there’s the tricky decision of whether to opt for a pattern or not. On top of all this you need to pick out the wallpaper type you’d like too and, with several types out there, it can be difficult to choose.
A good ‘all round’ wallpaper is vinyl wallpaper. This is the perfect type of wallpaper for all rooms; hang it anywhere from the kitchen to bathroom and bedroom for a consistent finish. This is a very durable wallpaper which is easy to hang and can be subjected to a lot of scrubbing and moisture.
Flock wallpaper is an old favourite of many with its raised velvet patterns and is found in homes across the country. This type of wallpaper is perfect for the more ‘formal’ rooms, such as dining rooms. Due to the velvet on this wallpaper, sometimes it’s best to vacuum it before putting it up to get rid of any loose particles.
Grass cloth wallpaper is an interesting new type of wallpaper. As the name suggests, this product is made from a weave of natural grasses. This is a good option if you’d like a textured wallpaper but, as the paper is made from natural grasses, you need to be aware that it may be uneven in places. In addition, as the grass is dyed, there can be some colour and shade differences between the pieces of wallpaper.
It’s also important to remember that with any wallpaper you will also need lining paper. Lining paper is a vital part of any wallpaper purchase, as it helps protect the wall and hide any deficits in the wall. This comes in grades from 400 to 1200 with a higher grade being a better quality and weight.
