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!
