The selection online is huge, the price most pleasing and you can apply them even as a layman quickly and with little effort.
And there is something else that speaks for the popularity of paper wallpapers: their properties. Paper is a natural product and as such environmentally friendly, breathable, and perfect for a healthy indoor climate. The weight of a role already says something about the quality of the wallpaper: High-quality paper wallpapers are heavier than cheaper ones. For the stable and heavy duplex variant, several layers of paper are joined together, and the surface is embossed. Embossed wallpapers are printed and embossed during the manufacturing process in a single working step.
The popular woodchip (ingrain) wallpaper is also a paper wallpaper. With these, you can buy a real evergreen: every third wallpaper purchase is a woodchip wallpaper. Typical for this wallpaper type are the small woodchips that are integrated between the layers of paper. They increase the stability and provide for a plastic and lively surface, which can be designed with colour just as you wish and can be painted over many times. Woodchip is usually made from recycled paper and is thus environmental and climate-friendly.
But also light, thin paper wallpapers in white or plain (monochrome) are among the evergreens in the wallpaper shop. If you wallpaper a perfectly prepared surface with these wallpapers, you immediately have a perfect base for many creative wall designs. Or you put colour on your wall strip by strip - evenly, quickly and without having to carry buckets of paint or mix colours first. This way, you save money and nerves.
HANGING PAPER WALLPAPER
How durable a particularly high-quality paper wallpaper is, you will also notice when you have to remove an old one from the wall: this is often impossible without soaking, scratching or perforating the wallpaper. When wallpapering, you use the classical technique: you paste the back of the wallpaper on the pasting table and then let it soak for five to fifteen minutes. Unlike non-woven wallpapers, a paper wallpaper stretches when the paste is being absorbed. The strip gets approximately one centimetre wider.
When drying on the wall, the wallpaper shrinks again. This so-called drying tension ensures that that wallpaper later sticks, bubble- and gap-free, tight to the wall. To paper the joins perfectly, you have to keep the same soaking time for every strip. This is important to avoid pattern shifts and unwanted irregularities. You do not need any expensive special paste and for tools and accessories you can use standard wallpapering equipment.
Photo wallpapers (murals) are also mostly made of paper. The robust carrier material is also used as a base for nature wallpapers, textile wallpapers and for many high-quality designer wallpapers.
