Wallpapering Your Home  – The Wallpaper Revolution…

It was not long ago that we were stripping off wallpaper from our homes, but in the past few years it has come roaring back into our interiors. Stoked up by supply of multi textured, and modern techniques - wallpaper brings a different element into our interiors that cannot be translated by using paint.
There are so many options to choose from; paper origami, cork, multi textured, vinyl – the list seems endless. The craze for the feature wall, has in recent years pushed the price of wallpaper up, as savvy companies have realised that people are choosing to design feature walls rather than paper whole rooms. However over the next few years, don't be surprised if wallpapering whole rooms bounces back into fashion.
If you are considering a feature wall then think carefully which one you choose, a nice blank square is ideal, as this will create the most impact.
It is also important to think about where you will be hanging your wallpaper, if it’s in a busy traffic zone, used by pets or kids then buy washable wallpaper. Avoid putting wallpaper in a bathroom or pasting it onto a textured surface, as it will probably peel off.
The first place to check for wallpaper is on the internet, you will find infinite choice of wall papers on-line, and if you can’t find anything you like you could create your own using a stencil roller.
Wallpaper comes in all different textures and patterns but here is what you will expect to pay for wallpaper:
Low end – between £10-18 per roll
Mid - £30-50 for a wallpaper such as Sanderson per roll - featured wall paper - Sanderson Dandelion Clocks - Spongeable - £42.00 per roll.
High – for highly textured wallpaper £60 plus per roll
It’s always best to ask for a free sample or find a store where you can see the wallpaper before buying, as it might look very different in the flesh.  Let’s hope that the come back of wallpaper doesn’t include ‘wood chip’.
