The use of wallpaper for interior decoration in residential, commercial and public buildings has been dated back to 200BC. For a very long time, we have used this medium to add colour, texture, life and interest to the spaces that we spend our time in.
You can take heart, this is not a recent "trend", but a long used form of interior adornment and embellishment. Over time, printing techniques have evolved with the modern world...but, the most beautiful paper are still the one using traditional techniques of block printing or screen printing, where the design is printed by hand, by incredibly skilled artisans
Correct wall preparation is essential to a beautiful wallpapered finish. The surface needs to be clean, sealed and as smooth as possible. The quality of the surface preparation not only ensures an incredible finish, it is one of the key requirements to removing the wallpaper in the future. If the wallpaper paste is able to soak into the wall it is applied to, it will be very difficult to remove without damaging the underlying wall. All it takes is a couple of coats of good quality primer to protect the wall.
While wallpaper suits many applications but special consideration needs to be given to wet areas, high traffic areas or commercial application. There is a wallpaper for all of these applications, though it is important to make sure you use the correct one so your walls remain a feature and source of enjoyment for as long as possible.
