The Appeal of Silk and Satin Wallpaper
Silk and Satin Wallpaper has been in fashion for literally hundreds of years. Applying fine cloth to walls for aesthetic purposes began in Europe roughly 500 years ago. In its infancy, wall coverings made from silk were reserved for the very wealthy. Today's consumers are fortunate to have a wide selection of silk and satin wallpaper available to them, in every color imaginable. Raw silk wall coverings remain popular because of their beauty and versatility, as well as for the tactile sensation they provide. While silks can be a little fussy to maintain, their elegance is unmatched by any other material.
Satin wall coverings may not be cloth at all. Collections feature vinyl coated and solid vinyl offerings with shiny, satin like finishes. Vinyl keeps these satin inspired wallpapers easy to clean, as they are water and dirt resistant, so they work in any room. Solid vinyl wall coverings are downright scrubbable, so little hands can touch the stripes, damask, floral, and vine patterns all they like. These stylish wall coverings reflect and refract light, making satiny vinyl wallpapers lovely to look at and easy to maintain.
Genuine raw silk wall coverings offer subtle textures and rich, vibrant colors from bright primaries to deep earth tones and from black to pink to pastel purple. Silk and satin wallpaper require more of an investment upfront. On the plus side, silks are easy to work with and offer unparalleled style, color, and feel. Top designers assert that nothing is more elegant and tactile than silk covered walls. Silk and satin wallpapers bring style, sheen, and flair to any space, and are versatile enough for any home or office.
