The rise and rise of wallpaper
The new image of wallpaper has placed it among the top ten design trends.
Architects and interior designers are using more wallpaper to add interest and personality to interiors in homes, apartments, cafés and hotels.
Starring role or support act
There are designs that make a ‘statement wall’ – show-off centrepiece patterns that come close to being works of art. These papers attract attention and add character.
Wallpaper can be used as a background to enhance a space rather than take it over. Tone-on-tone interiors remain in vogue. Subtle textured or patterned wallpapers provide a backdrop for furniture, furnishings and artwork. Textured wallpaper brings a real 'touch appeal' to your walls and a range of styles and finishes, whether it is the natural look of linen, basket-weave, suede or even leather effects.
Good-looking and practical
Textured wallpaper adds a 'feel good' factor and a sense of an extra 'finish' to interior walls, and it has a further benefit: if a wall surface is a bit tired and has rough patches and imperfections, a textured paper can hide a multitude of sins, rather like a blemish concealer in a make-up kit.
When it comes to looking after wallcoverings, some of the more expensive options need special attention. But, in general, most wallpapers are easy care and washable.
Patterned or plain, wallpaper is a versatile decorating tool that will quickly transform a room, adding character and interest.
