Swapping out paint for wallpaper is a great way to redecorate a room. And with so many types of wallpaper available, you’ll have several design options. Here are 3 wallpaper types to consider.
1 Silk Wallpaper
Silk wallpaper is one of the most elegant types of wallpaper on the market today. It’s elegant texture is created by applying silk threads to a paper backing. But as its name suggests, the silk version of wallpaper is delicate. You might want to paper the walls with a wallpaper liner first. Also, avoid placing this type of wallpaper in rooms where damage is likely – such as in a bathroom or laundry washroom.
2 Vinyl Wallpaper
Vinyl is one of the oldest and most widely used types of wallpaper. It’s a workhorse type of wallpaper that works well in just about any situation. Vinyl wallpaper is made by printing a design on a paper backing. The paper backing is then covered with a vinyl topcoat. One of the biggest benefits of vinyl is that it offers a huge selection of designs.
3 Flock Wallpaper
Flock wallpaper creates a 3D effect by using polyester, nylon, or rayon to create a raised pattern. The fabric is attached to an adhesive paper backing and applied to the wall. Flock wallpaper is delicate, so avoid installing it in areas such as bathrooms or children’s rooms.
