What Type of Wallpaper Should I Choose?
There are three types of wallpaper to choose from -- solid vinyl, vinyl coated and natural textured. Each has its own special attributes.
- Solid vinyl wallcovering has a vinyl front with a paper backing. It is very durable and can easily be scrubbed clean.
- A vinyl-coated paper is treated with a vinyl coating to help resist soil and water. It can be permeated by grease and water, but is adaptable to most rooms.
- Natural textures, including grasscloths and stringcloths, are made from natural and synthetic fibers, and add warmth and texture to a room. They are recommended only for low-use, dry areas, as they can be damaged by steam and moisture.
