Types of paper wallpapers
Color matching should be taken into account when choosing wallpaper, patterns and textures to size, the shape and style of the room. It is equally important to assess the practical qualities of a given cladding. In some rooms, wallpaper should be particularly durable, in others – washable frequently. Sometimes the ease of placing them determines the choice, especially, if you do not have much experience in this field.
The thinner is the hardest, cheap wallpapers, which, when soaked with glue, tear easily, especially at the corners. Medium thick wallpapers, thick, washable and vinyl are more resistant and do not require so much care. Glue streaks on the decorative side of the wallpaper may not be removable, Therefore, vinyl or vinyl wallpapers glued with paper, may turn out to be irreplaceable. They are not porous, Therefore, they are ideal for places where water vapor is particularly dense, such as bathroom or kitchen.
Thick vinyl linings, resistant to dirt and abrasions, they perfectly fulfill their task in corridors, staircases or mezzanines.
Wallpapers with glue will save a lot of time needed for mixing and applying glue. Thick polyethylene wallpapers are equally easy to use, applied to the wall smeared with glue.
The base wallpaper is usually placed under the actual wallpaper, thanks to which we obtain something like a paper ground layer, covering up all unevenness and years. There are several types of backing wallpapers, including gray, serving as a wallpaper underlay, or smoother, pure white, serving as a base for the paint layer. Cold walls, on which water vapor can settle, should be covered with a special foam, having warming and insulating properties, as well as concealing unevenness of the wall surfaces.
