Different Types of Wallpaper

Wallpaper is an age-old home decorating solution that has been used since the 16th century in Europe. It’s still a popular and stylish way to add colour, texture and pattern to your walls without the commitment of painting. There are many different types of wallpaper, each with its own characteristics and applications. To help you decide which type will best suit your needs, here is a brief overview of the most common varieties:

  • Vinyl Wallpaper: Vinyl wallpaper is one of the most popular types available today. It's usually pre-pasted for easy application and features a plastic coating that makes it both durable and washable. It can be wiped clean with a damp cloth or sponge without fading or peeling away from your walls, making it ideal for high-traffic areas like bathrooms and kitchens. Vinyl wallpaper also comes in a variety of styles including floral prints, stripes, textures or even metallic finishes so you can choose something to suit any room in your home.
  • Foam-Backed Wallpaper: This type of wallpaper incorporates foam backing between two layers of paper which helps to reduce sound transmission between rooms as well as provide insulation against cold air drafts during winter months.

Preparing the Walls for Installation

When it comes to commercial wallpaper installation at Lusso Wallcoverings, proper preparation is essential. It can be the difference between a successful installation and one with costly repairs down the line. Whether you are putting up drywall for a new room or renovating an old one, here are some tips on how to properly prepare the walls for installation.

  • Check for Structural Damage: Before doing anything else, check over the wall and look for any structural damage that may need repair before starting your project. Pay attention to any cracks or bulges in the wall, gaps between panels, and other signs of damage that could cause instability when installing new walls.
  • Clear Away Obstacles: Make sure there are no obstacles in the way of where you want to install your walls such as furniture or fixtures like light switches and outlets that may need to be moved out of the way first.
  • Clean Surface Areas: Clean all areas where new walls will be installed with a damp cloth or sponge to remove dirt and dust build-up which could affect adhesion during installation if left uncleaned.

Hanging the Wallpaper

Hanging wallpaper is a great way to add colour and texture to any room in your home. It can be a daunting task for those who have never done it before, but with some patience and the right tools, hanging wallpaper can be a rewarding experience.

The first step in hanging wallpaper is to choose the right type of wallpaper for the job. There are many varieties available including vinyl-coated, pre-pasted and traditional wallpapers. Vinyl-coated wallpapers are easy to clean and very durable while pre-pasted wallpapers come with an adhesive backing that makes them easy to install.

Traditional wallpapers require paste or glue which must be applied manually; this type often requires more skill as it has to be applied evenly across the surface of the paper without bubbling or creasing.

Once you have chosen your wallpaper, measure how much you need for each area of your walls by measuring from the floor to the ceiling and side to side in each room. Make sure that you purchase enough extra material so that you have enough if mistakes are made when cutting or pasting the paper onto your walls (it’s better safe than sorry).

Sealing and Finishing the Job

When it comes to completing a project, sealing and finishing the job are two of the most important steps. Sealing and finishing protect the surface from wear, tear, and damage, as well as give it a professional finish. Whether you’re painting a wall or refinishing furniture, proper sealing and finishing can make all the difference in your finished product.

Sealing is an essential step when completing any kind of project. It helps to protect the surface from water damage, scratches, and other types of wear and tear that could ruin your final result. Sealing also helps to prevent paint fading or staining over time. Depending on what type of material you are working with will determine which sealant is best for your application; typically either polyurethane or shellac are used for wood surfaces while acrylic sealants work best on walls or other non-porous materials such as metal or plastic. Once applied correctly using either a brush or roller applicator following manufacturer instructions allow plenty of time for drying before adding additional coats if needed until desired protection is achieved.


In conclusion, commercial wallpaper installation is a great way to update the look of any business or office space. It is an affordable and easy way to freshen up the look of any room, and with so many different styles and patterns available, it can easily be tailored to fit any aesthetic. With professional installation services available, you can rest assured that your project will be completed quickly and efficiently.
