Trend Alert: Large Scale Wallpapers
While small regularly repeating wallpaper patterns are now considered to be more old fashioned, hugely trendy right now is wallpaper with gigantic design elements. Imagine larger-than-life flowers blossoming across your walls, consuming trippy psychedelic designs that look straight from a kaleidoscope or an overwhelmingly decedent demask design to make your home feel like a palace. You can have it all with ‘print and pattern’ murals.
Thinking Green with Patterned Murals
When hanging wallpaper, some are surprised to learn how much can get wasted in between strips in order to line up the pattern - the longer until a pattern is repeated, the worse this problem of waste can be. However, one great benefit of hanging a wallpaper mural (even if in the end it looks like wallpaper) is that you are given exactly as much as you need and nothing is wasted. The environment will thank you!
Choosing Non-woven or Paper Material
The main difference between non-woven and paper wallpapers is in the ease of application and removal. Non-woven wallpaper is easy to hang as you can apply the paste directly to the wall without any soaking time and it can also be easily removed while completely dry. Paper is much more affordable for those on a budget, but it also requires more work to hang as the paper must soak in the paste before hanging (where it will also expand in size) and it will also be much more difficult to remove. Both have their pros and cons!
