Why Use Wallpaper

Pound for pound, wallpaper might be slightly more expensive than paint but for good reason. There are a number of benefits to choosing wallpaper over a coat of paint. Here are a few:

  • It is available in a wide variety of patterns, designs and finishes
  • Depending on how it is applied, it can be easily removed and replaced
  • Some wallpapers can last up to 10 – 15 years, much longer than paint.
  • It is extremely durable
  • It can cover uneven wall surfaces

The Difficulties Of DIY Wallpaper Installation

Many people try DIY wallpaper installation. Unfortunately, they don’t anticipate it being as big of a job as it is since they don’t know they will need to:

  • Accurately measure the walls.
  • Order the right amount of wallpaper.
  • Prep the walls for application.
  • Carefully and precisely cut the paper.
  • Apply the glue correctly.

Meticulously apply the wallpaper to the wall while ensuring the effect is perfectly smooth and even throughout.
Because of the complexity of the work, it’s very easy to make mistakes without the proper experience. Poorly installed wallpaper could result in visible mistakes in the wallpaper pattern that will be much more expensive to fix compared to simply hiring professional wallpaper installers in the first place.

Types of wallpaper

Different types of wallpaper provide different looks as well as durability. You can also choose wallpapers that are more environmentally friendly than others if that is important to you. Here are some of the most popular wallpaper types to consider:


Liner paper is a fibreglass paper used to hide wall defects or patterns such as wood paneling. You can paint liner paper and some choose to use it as a foundation or base for wallpapers that might tear easily.


Vinyl wallpaper is the most popular type of covering because of its versatility. You can choose from a wide range of vinyl papers like the thick solid sheet vinyl paper or vinyl coated fabric that has more of a texture to it.


If you’re looking to go eco-friendly, non-woven wallpaper might be the choice for you. Its breathable and you can wash it so chances of mold are very low. It is easy to remove and typically comes down in large pieces.


A budget-friendly choice might be printed wallpaper. This is produced at high quantities and is usually a lower quality than most vinyl wallpapers so you need to be careful as it tears easily.


If you’re looking to add grandeur to a room, you might consider flock wallpaper. It is velvety to the touch and leads the pack when it comes to high-end options. Be careful though, flock wallpaper is delicate, difficult to apply and equally difficult to remove.

Wallpaper Pattern Repeats

There are three types of pattern repeats and it is really important to know which one you have so you can plan the application correctly.

  1. Straight Match: This pattern design will match if every strip is hung from the exact same height on the wall.
  2. Random Match: This pattern will match up nicely regardless of where each strip is placed.
  3. Drop Match: This type of pattern will require you to buy extra because in order to get the designs to match up, you’ll be cutting away pieces to ensure perfect symmetry throughout the application.
