When choosing your wallpaper consider the many types available all of which our expert decorators can hang:-


is ideal for hiding small defects in walls/ceilings and is usually finished by applying paint after the paper has fully dried.


is probably the cheapest type of patterned wallpaper available, it is just a pattern printed onto a basic paper.

Washable Wallpapers

have a thin plastic transparent coating covering the pattern printed on to the base pulp paper. This coating gives them more resistant to stains and marks and allows them to be regularly wiped down with a damp cloth.

Vinyl Coated

papers are quite tough and washable making them ideal for use in kitchens and bathrooms.


are tougher than vinyl-coated wallpapers as the vinyl skin on the front of the base paper is thicker. Vinyl wallpapers are tough, washable and ideal for kitchens and bathrooms.


is a generic name for plain embossed patterned papers. Ideal for hiding defects in walls and are usually finished off with a coat of paint.


papers are quite similar to Anaglypta but with a coloured pattern as a decorative finish rather than the plain paper finish.

Blown Vinyl

is similar to the embossed wallpaper but the finish is vinyl plastic which gives it a tough finish.


wallpapers are one of the oldest types of wallpaper used, the pattern consists of fibres which feel and look rather like velvet.
