This type of paper can be used anywhere in the home. It’s a paper that’s coated with a liquid vinyl during the manufacturing process. It’s washable and is usually prepasted. When you’re ready for a change it can usually be removed with a steamer or chemical wallpaper stripper as long as the walls were properly primed before the paper was hung.
Bathrooms, kitchens, and hallways are ideal places for solid vinyl. It’s a heavier than vinyl coated and is extremely durable. Sometimes paste has to be added, but that’s really not too difficult. There are different weights with the heavier ones being suitable for high traffic areas in commercial spaces. Some of the commercial wallpaper comes in large 54″ bolts, and is sold by the yard. Solid vinyl is easy to remove and comes down in large strips as long as the walls were properly primed before the wallpaper was installed.
Made from natural reeds and grasses, this type of wallpaper gives a beautiful texture and timeless look. It’s not washable, so it shouldn’t be used anywhere like a bathroom. And FYI, it’s prone to stain from water and fade from direct sunlight. It’s great for dining rooms, living rooms, entryways, or rooms that aren’t high traffic areas. On the plus side, it’s easy to hang because it doesn’t have to be matched at the seams.
A mural is a large photo or scene that usually comes in panels. It’s applied to the wall like large rectangular pieces of a puzzle and can make a dramatic, beautiful accent wall.
