Easier to Install (for Installers)
Wallpaper installers prefer to install Korean wallpaper as it is wider (1.06m) and requires less joining, which saves a lot more time and matching repeated patterns to complete covering a wall. A broader width provided by Korean wallpaper allows patterns to be printed more randomly. When joined together vertically, most people do not notice the patterns are repeated as compared to the narrower European wallpaper, which might end up looking disjointed in the hands of an unskilful wallpaper job. That said, for DIYers the narrower European wallpaper is still easier as 52cm is almost equal to a woman’s shoulder length, but if cost is your concern why not take a look at our Korean wallpaper collection instead?
