Wallpaper was very popular until the 70’s and 80’s, when most of us opted to get rid of it and paint the walls instead. In the past few years wallpaper installation has come right back into fashion and the choice you have in design and construction is enormous.
Embossed and grass cloth wallpapers are widely used on walls that have imperfections and are not easily corrected. Since they have more texture and thickness, they are perfect for installation in entryways and for living room or dining room wall accents.
Vinyl wallpaper is primarily used in bathrooms, because it is easy to install and remove, and most also having a wipe-able surface. Fabric and foil wallpapers are difficult to install but add an interesting pop of color to any room. Flock wallpaper is not as widely used because it has raised patterns that makes it difficult to clean and holds dust, but it too is making a comeback.
