Choosing the Right Wallpaper

Things to Consider

Applying wallpaper to your walls is a long-term commitment. It is, therefore, important that you choose the right wallpaper, not in terms of your taste when it comes to textures and patterns, but also to ensure maximum durability and quality. Let’s take a look at the things that you should consider when choosing the right wallpaper.

What is the Best Wallpaper to Use?

There are many components to selecting the best wallpaper to use. The biggest one is your personal taste. Since you are the one that is living with your wallpaper every day, you have to make sure that personally like it and that it is congruent to your personality and the atmosphere you’d like your interior space to have.

The colour of the wallpaper is another significant consideration as it impacts the room’s mood. If you have a small room, go with cool colours such as green or blue to make the room seem larger. The tone of the colour also plays a role as lighter tones can give the room a tranquil feel and it also reflects the most amount of light, which will brighten up dark corners. Warm colours work best if you live in a colder environment.

Unsure about what colours are right for your project? Give us a call, Mayfair Paint & Paper has four Professional Colour Consultants available to put you on the right track.

If your wall has imperfections, the best way to hide it is with wallpaper that is textured. Actual tactile surfaces like grass or cloth will not only make a room feel cozier, but it will also hide little holes or bumpy wall textures. Floral or leaf designs can also provide your room with ample visual interest as well as a natural element to your décor.

What is the Most Durable Wallpaper

Generally speaking, the most durable wallpaper is solid sheet vinyl. This type of wallpaper has a pulp substrate laminated to a solid decorative surface of the vinyl. This solid sheet vinyl is resistant to stains, grease, and moisture.

If you are looking for the most durable wallpaper for kitchens and bathrooms, consider vinyl coated paper. This is a paper substrate that is coated with an acrylic vinyl or PVC. This wallpaper can be aggressively cleaned without getting damaged.

What are the Wallpaper Groups?

There are many different wallpaper groups. Let’s take a look at the three most popular types available today.

Traditional Wallpaper

This type of wallpaper is the most popular for bedrooms and dining rooms. The main component of this type of wallpaper is cellulose and it is probably the most affordable type of wallpaper there is.

Vinyl Wallpaper

This is an incredibly durable type of wallpaper that typically consists of a substrate made of paper or fabric. Vinyl wallpaper can look good for up to 20 years and the only reason you may consider replacing them is due to changing trends.

Embossed Wallpaper

The greatest thing about embossed wallpaper is its texture. If you’d like to add depth and visual interest to your room, this may be the best wallpaper group for you. They generally have earthy tones and is best to cover up wall imperfections.
