The Most Frequently Asked Questions about Wall Coverings
What kinds of coverings should I look out for?
There are two basic types of wall coverings available for you to consider: textured wallpaper and patterned wallpaper. Textured wallpaper can be seen and felt, as this type of covering comes with a certain amount of added dimension. These wallpapers always have raised elements to them. Conversely, patterned wallpapers are outfitted with graphics, images, or symbols and come with surfaces that are smooth to the touch.
How do I keep wall coverings clean?
Like every type of wallpaper, you want to keep the covering clean for it to appear as it should. The simplest cleaning method for these coverings would be to use a small vacuum on any area that requires cleaning. For any paper that is textured, make sure that the vacuum is equipped with a brush attachment. For actual stains, a light washing with a small sponge is gentle enough to keep your wallpaper in good condition. Squeeze out the sponge beforehand to remove the possibility of streaks of water going down the paper. After finishing rinsing the wallpaper, a dry towel will allow you to remove any remaining moisture. Any coverings you have within the kitchen should be cleaned on a regular basis.
Which types of textures and styles can wall coverings come in?
The wallpapers and coverings available to you come in a range of unique styles that can change the appearance of the walls in your home into anything you want. For a natural look, consider coverings that come with brick or wood styles or textures. Tile, stone, and marble are several other wallpaper styles that are commonly available and will substantially alter the appearance of the walls in your bathroom or kitchen. Certain wallpaper styles make it look as though you are outside due to the inclusion of trees and flowers within the design. Some styles appear as bookcases or even newspapers.
Which rooms can wall coverings be used in?
These coverings can adorn the walls of any room in your house. Certain coverings and wallpapers are designed with specific rooms in mind, such as marble stone designs typically being used for the bathroom. We recommend matching the wallpaper with the remainder of the decor in the room. Rooms that have a natural and rustic appearance to the decor can be paired with neutral color schemes that place an emphasis on gray, brown, tan, black, and white colors. There's no limit to which coverings you can place in a specific room, so you can enjoy pairing the room decor with whichever style of wallpaper you prefer.
