Where to Use Grasscloth Wallpaper-the Natural Choice
Grasscloth is perfect in a Study, Living Room, Dining Room, Bedroom, Entrance Way, Media Room or Powder Room. It is not good for use in a full bath because it might come in contact with water or steam. Since it is porous-steam can filter through the paper and thus reside in the back of the paper leading to possible mold build-up. Therefore, do not use grasscloth in a main bathroom.
Also, because it is not possible to wash down the surface it is not perfect for kitchen use.
