The most common types of wallpaper are:
Wallpaper has several different attributes that help to determine its durability. These are outlined below:
As there are so many different types of wallpaper, as well as a plethora of patterns, it is easy to feel overwhelmed by the amount of choices available. An interior decorator will be able to help you choose a wallpaper that is right for the area in which it will be hung and also choose paper that will complement your existing décor or form the basis for entirely new décor if you are redecorating.
Just as you need to prepare the walls for painting, you will need to do the same for wallpaper. The existing condition of the walls will also have an effect on which type of wallpaper you choose. For example, if your walls are in great condition, then wallpaper with a flat finish or shimmer effect will look great. If your walls look somewhat worn, a paper with an embossed or otherwise textured finish will look better.
It is best to get a professional in to install your wallpaper as they will not only be able to prepare the walls correctly, they will be able to help advise you on the best wallpaper for your living conditions and requirements. Additionally, they will be able to match up the patterns for a seamless look.
