Vinyl Wallpaper

Vinyl wallpaper is a paper base with a vinyl coating of varying density, which gives the wallpaper increased strength and resistance to moisture. They all have excellent performance qualities. Dense and flexible vinyl wallpaper is easy to clean and wash (with a damp soft sponge or brush depending on the type of vinyl wallpaper). Does not fade in the sun and can quite decorate the walls for about 15 years. With good preparation of the walls by professional painters, vinyl wallpaper in the entire  bedroom creates the effect of a solid canvas.  That is, the standard of quality wallpaper hanging is the complete absence of visible joints between rolls. Only vinyl wallpaper from leading European manufacturers ensure that the wallpaper is made with water-soluble paints, as well as purified vinyl, which does not emit any harmful substances into the air.

All vinyl wallpaper professionals conditionally divided into 3 types, which differ from each other by the way of production, appearance and cost:

  • Foam (bulk) vinyl ( structure design walls/bedroom wallpaper/hall wallpaper)
  • Super washable wallpaper ( can be use for kitchen wallpaper/bathroom wallpaper...)
  • Flat vinyl or silkscreen (bedroom wallpaper/hall wallpaper)

Textile wallpaper

Textile wallpaper is one of the most expensive and sophisticated ways to decorate walls and is recommended to hang wallpaper by professionals. The front surface of this wallpaper is a fabric, which is applied on a paper or non-woven base. Depending on the material used for the upper textile layer of the wallpaper, such as viscose, linen, silk, as well as the natural or artificial origin of the fabric fibers, the final cost of the textile wallpaper can be very different.

Textile wallpaper always gives a classic noble look to the room, the wall surface becomes three-dimensional and is perceived as a vast textile smoothness, which, in combination with other interior items creates a cozy and luxurious environment. In addition, fabric wallpaper certainly emphasizes the status of the homeowner and is often used in premium interiors.

Textile wallpaper requires much more care than regular vinyl wallpaper. You will notice a sign on most rolls that they are only dry cleanable. This means they can be wiped down with a soft brush or at most cleaned gently with a vacuum cleaner. Any wet manipulations with textile wallpaper should be avoided, because they can leave stains and streaks that will be impossible to remove. The only exceptions are separate collections of textile wallpapers with special water-repellent impregnations.

Paintable wallpaper

Paintable wallpaper is a type of wallpapering that needs additional painting after it is applied. They are made on different bases with the addition of materials such as paper, nonwoven, fiberglass or synthetics. The most popular now for wallpaper designs are on a non-woven basis.

Available wallpaper for painting, as a rule, have a large roll size - 1m by 25 m and can be repainted in different colors from 5 to 10 times, depending on the manufacturer. Initially, this wallpaper is white and many buyers think that they can be glued and leave white. But, we would like to warn you that the wallpaper for painting is a semi-finished product, which becomes a finished product only after dyeing, it is then they gain strength and durability.
