Wallpapers continue to be an in-demand asset for homes and businesses alike. Here's why wallpapers' legacy has endured.
A Brief History of Wallpaper
Wallpaper first became available to the wider population during the Victorian era. Thanks to new production methods they were easier to make and more readily available. This boom saw Britain become a hub of production.
Since that time, wallpaper has continued to be a mainstay of interior design. This is in no small part due to its durability. Wallpaper can last up to three times as long as paint. It's also the ideal fix for imperfect walls when hung correctly.
The greatest appeal, however, is the variety of patterns. Traditional prints like floral wallpaper, Toile de Jouy wallpaper, and bird print wallpaper are still popular today. They've also been re-printed and re-imagined.
Plus, there's a myriad of new designs that have captured imaginations with every pattern and colour imaginable. There's now a luxury wallpaper to fit every taste and interior.
Contemporary Luxury Wallpaper Designs
Since the Victorian era there has been many more advancements in the creation of wallpaper. This includes the printing methods, finishes, and materials used. Here's three types of modern wallpapers that have taken luxury to the next level.
Three Types of Modern Wallpapers
Wide-width wallpapers offer the opportunity to add a large design to interiors. They're ideal for using with high ceilings and in hallways. They're a great way to update grand spaces or add pattern to modern interiors.
Mural wallpapers can be printed to fit walls. Digital printing methods mean a pattern can be moved around doors or furniture. Whether used as a feature wall or all around a room, the result is perfectly styled contemporary interiors.
As the world is becoming more environmentally conscious many brands are doing the same. Wallpaper is already longer-lasting than paint, making it a natural choice for sustainable interiors.
Many brands have now adopted eco-friendly approaches to production. This includes off-setting emissions, protecting surrounding land and water, and the materials used.
There's more printed to order wallpapers than ever which means that producers do not have excess materials in their stores that may go to waste. Then there's biodegradable and recyclable papers. Plus, many have started using inks that are environmentally friendly too.
Modern luxury wallpapers also provide even more benefits. Textured and vinyl wallpapers, for example, last even longer. Whilst, mural wallpapers offer less waste for the customer when they're printed to fit a room's exact measurements.
This has made luxury wallpapers a coveted addition to all types of interiors. It's great to see so many making these moves and changes.
