The Main Differences in Wallpaper Brands

Choosing wall coverings for your home or business can seem daunting, especially if you've never done it before. Aside from basics like color and pattern, there are still materials to be considered, as well as ease of installation and removal, cost, durability, and utility. Before you even begin perusing and comparing wallpaper brands, it might behoove you to create a list of the things you're looking for. If you require wallpaper that's stain resistant and easy to clean, make a note of it. If your new wall covering needs to exactly match the color and feel of your favorite throw pillow—write that down too. It can be frustrating to sift through an expansive selection of colors, textures, and styles if you're sure you're forgetting something important. 

Are some wallpaper brands inherently better than others? As you might imagine, that's largely a question of taste. Specifically though, brands do have things they specialize in. If it's designer walls you want, Ralph Lauren might have just what you're looking for. In the mood for grasscloth? Kenneth James specializes in it and has a vast catalog of stringcloth and grasscloth in a full spectrum of colors. Designers can and do make the case that some wallpaper brands are inherently better than others. Still, designers agree that the most important factor in making your selection is whether or not you'll want to look at your new walls every day. 

The best way to get a feel for what different wallpaper brands have to offer is to check out the selections yourself, or get the whole family involved. Kids will love picking out patterns or borders that express their unique interests. Have a room that requires a refined look? Try Seabrook's Platinum Series for an array of classic patterns and tasteful colors. No matter which wallpaper brands you choose, it's essential that your new walls give you the look, feel, and longevity your home deserves.
