FAQs

What is Wallcovering?

Known as wallpaper, the name has kept up with coating and content changes. Now, wallcovering includes paper-base material, paper that has a vinyl coat so it is washable, solid sheet vinyl laminate on fabric that is known as Sanitas, solid sheet vinyl on paper, solid sheet rayon Dacron, natural fibers such as grasscloth, foils, linen, cork, suedes, metallic materials, yarns. There is no limit to what can be hung on a wall.

For the Love of Wallpaper’s huge choice of in-stock patterns includes many vintage style patterns with vinyl coating. We also have a large group of natural grasscloth and cork products. And we have many floral, kitchen, bathroom and children’s wallpaper and border patterns.

Wallpaper Installation Tools

Is anything else sold besides wallpaper?

Yes, we also sell Wall Liner.

Heavy duty wall liner is great for applying over sand finish plaster, cement block, v-grooved paneling and other problem walls prior to installing wallpaper/wallcovering. We suggest wall liner as a base for new wallcoverings to be applied to problem walls. It covers cracks, rough spots, cement blocks and paneling. Refer to the Installation Tips page for more information. Wall liner provides a new-wall surface for all wallpaper sidewalls and is perfect for smooth, non-textured patterns.

We also sell adhesives, pastes, water trays, smoothers, etc. and other supplies for a perfect install.

Why should I consider wallpaper as an alternative to paint?

Wallpaper enhances a room and adds warmth, texture and the chance to make a design statement. Wallpaper is also friendly to the environment. It contains no toxic chemicals, does not need harsh solvents, and is produced in a way to minimize climate impact. It does not have a strong odor when applied. Most wallcoverings do not use petro-chemicals in the production process. Materials like grasscloth are all natural and grown in sustainable forests and fields. Wallpaper can also be washed down and new advances in technology make it easy to install and de-install. Whether used as a statement wall, behind book cases, in a picture frame or covering the walls of a room, wallcovering/wallpaper can make a room really stand out.

Furthermore, our prices on discount, designer patterns are so low as to make wallcovering cheaper than paint.

How long does wallpaper last?

With proper wall prep and supplies, wallpaper lasts. If you want a new pattern, change is now much easier. New patterns are brought to market every day. Every year a large number of new wallpaper patterns are designed in the “color of the year.” Change a Nursery to a children’s room to a teenager’s room to a guest bedroom with new wallpaper or border patterns that are more budget and climate friendly than paint.

Can I use wallpaper if I have textured or uneven walls?

Yes. Three different solutions allow you to hang wallpaper over surfaces as rough as cinderblock, stucco, or paneling.

1. A fabric-backed vinyl wallcovering pattern.
2. Commercial wall liner.
3. Expanded and paintable wallpaper.

Of these three methods, wall liner offers the most protection against rough surface bleed through. See the Installation Guide section for more detail about wall liner which comes in varied sizes and thickness.

Can I get wallpaper to fit my color scheme or design theme?

Yes. We can produce custom wallpaper in your color choice as well as create new designs based on your own creative ideas or most exciting of all–We can create murals or wallcoverings from digital camera images. Imagine the choices–a mural of a favorite beach with softly lapping waves on a wall behind your bed or bath.
