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.

  1. Solid vinyl wallcovering has a vinyl front with a paper backing. It is very durable and can easily be scrubbed clean. 
  2. 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. 
  3. 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.
