Classy and Sassy
European wallpapers have a rich history especially within England and are well recognized as the most commonly used form of medium to high-end wallpapers generally coming in the size of 53cm*10m rolls, making it easier to install although more strips are needed than usual (twice compared to Korean wallpapers). They are mostly made with non-woven fabric, which is a combination of natural and synthetic fibers. Non-woven wallpapers were introduced back in 2008, and its dimensionally stable nature has proven to be popular with DIY home enthusiasts as it combines the best of quality and aesthetics.
What are the Advantages of Non-Woven Wallpaper?
As a lightweight wallpaper its fabric is unusually durable, making it extremely easy to hang or remove, even when it is wet when there is a lot of glue during application. Its resistance to moisture also means it won’t expand or contract over time, making it installable anywhere in the house that has no direct contact with water. Being washable and breathable also resolves the issue of mold and mildew. No wonder 2/3 of European wallpapers today have adapted to utilizing non-woven fabric, as it is very environment friendly while being extremely durable at the same time.
Making a Statement
European wallpapers unlike its Asian counterparts, consist of a lot more bold and exotic designs. Brands like NLXL and Koziel are well known for their trompe l'oeil (faux) wallpapers, while Mindthegap is known for its eclectic collection which takes inspiration from cultures and religions all over the world, and then you have Graham & Brown, Rasch and Parato whose designs are much more subtle. Whether you prefer a loud or subtle design, European wallpapers make a great choice as a feature wall to accentuate the space around you.
