For The Love of Wallpapers – Is It Still In Demand? Wallpaper still has a lot going for it – it’s relatively easy to apply, creates an instant “WOW” factor or feature in almost any space, the range is endless and to be honest it’s not as expensive as you might think.. Along with colour, pattern can serve many functions in your home or commercial space – it can be a focal point or a backdrop, it can attract attention, create a mood and even alter the apparent dimensions of a room.

As you can see, the possibilities are endless and now that we have new application technologies (such easy peel and paste the wall), there really isn’t a valid reason to not consider WALLPAPER when looking to improve the look of your home or commercial interiors…
