What Wallpaper Type Should I Choose?

Choosing the right wallpaper depends on your room’s function and style. Vinyl wallpapers are durable and cleanable, making them ideal for high-traffic areas like kitchens and bathrooms. Non-woven wallpapers are breathable, preventing mold, and are easy to remove, perfect for renters. For a luxurious touch, consider flock wallpapers with their velvety patterns, suitable for low-humidity spaces like bedrooms and living rooms. Remember to consider the room’s lighting, as it can affect how the wallpaper’s color and pattern appear.

Please AVOID peel and stick wallpaper, it’s a non professional product that can cause excessive damage to the wall once removed.


How Much Wallpaper Do I Need?

To calculate the amount of wallpaper needed, measure the height and width of each wall. Subtract the space taken by windows and doors. Multiply the height by the width to get the total square footage. Add 10-15% extra for pattern matching and trimming. If your walls are taller than standard wallpaper rolls, you may need additional length to accommodate the pattern repeat. It’s always better to buy a bit extra than to run short mid-project.


Can I Wallpaper Over Existing Wallpaper?

Wallpapering over existing wallpaper is possible but not always advisable. If the old wallpaper is firmly attached and smooth, you can wallpaper over it. However, textured or peeling wallpapers should be removed for a clean, smooth surface. Consider applying a primer before installing the new wallpaper to ensure better adhesion and to prevent old patterns or colors from showing through.


Where Do I Get Wallpaper From?


Shops In Perth: Origin Wallpapers, Wallcandy, Scandinavian Wallpaper and Verve Designers.


How Long Does Wallpaper Installation Take?

The duration of wallpaper installation varies depending on room size, wallpaper type, and the complexity of the pattern. For a single room, installation can take anywhere from a day to several days. Complex patterns requiring precise alignment or special adhesives may extend installation time. Hiring a professional can ensure efficiency and precision, especially for intricate designs.
