So what is wallpaper?
Wallpaper is the material on which pictures are printed. The most common type of wallpaper is paper made from wood pulp that has been treated with sizing to make it more water-resistant. This type of wallpaper has the advantage of being durable and easy to hang. But it is not possible to put any design on it, so you will always need to buy a pre-printed one. You can choose the size and shape of the wallpaper that you want.

Well, wallpapers are made of a versatile material that can be used to decorate any room in your home. But when shopping for wallpaper, there are various things to consider before deciding which wallpaper to buy.
When you consider buying any wallpaper, these are the things to look at, the price, the color, and the size. However, the average price of a roll of wallpaper ranges from S$8 to S$12.
Let’s start with these six basic kinds of wallpaper for houses; vinyl, paper, foil, fabric, plastic, and others. But wallpapers are divided into four major categories, namely:
The most common and affordable types of wallpaper are paper-based wallpapers. The best part about them is that they are extremely easy to apply, especially when compared to the other types. This is because the paper is already pre-treated. It is usually applied to a wall or other flat surface by using either a wallpaper paste or adhesive. You can simply apply paper-based wallpaper anywhere in your home, including ceilings, walls, floors, windows, and even furniture. You can also choose from a wide range of patterns and colors to complement your home’s design.
They are one of the most classic and widely used wallpaper designs. Vinyl wallpaper is a type of wallpaper that is made from a thin film of vinyl or plastic. It is the ultimate wallpaper that looks and feels good, as it has a warm and natural look. It’s easy to apply, can be easily customized, and has a long lifespan too. However, vinyl wallpaper does not come in any standard sizes, so you will need to cut it yourself.
Vinyl wallpapers are usually applied over existing wallpaper or paper using a heat press. Vinyl wallpapers are available in a wide variety of patterns and colors. They have an amazing texture, which makes them extremely durable and easy to clean. They are available in different thicknesses, making it possible for you to choose the perfect one for your walls. It’s also very easy to remove. You can easily change them if you decide to do so.
These have come a long way since their invention in the 1990s. Today, they are everywhere – on phones, tablets, laptops, TVs, refrigerators, and even cars! From a simple patterned design to an intricate hand-painted mural, foil wallpaper can provide a whole new look for your home. The best part is that foil wallpaper is easy to install.
You don’t even need to be a professional to get this job done. All you need to do is follow the instructions on the back of the wallpaper to complete the installation.
The design is not only beautiful, but it can also help you save some money. Foil wallpapers are the best choice for rooms with a lot of windows because the designs are clear and the colors pop out. This will give your room an updated look while saving money on your monthly electric bill.
Plastic-based wallpapers add a certain sense of whimsy.
They add color to your space. While they can be fun and add a certain sense of whimsy, they’re not exactly the most environmentally friendly option. Thankfully, there are options out there that don’t use plastic at all. Instead, they’re made from natural materials like cork, paper, or even bamboo.
Let’s move on.
How to choose the right type of wallpaper for your home.
Choosing a wallpaper design for your home can be a tricky decision. But there are a few things to consider when picking a design.
However, the best wallpaper for your home is the one that makes you happy. It should be easy to install, won’t cost you an arm or a leg, and be something you can enjoy for years to come.
Perhaps, we can ask these questions:
- Do you want something that is going to last a long time?

How to select the right size of wallpaper for your walls.
Wallpaper is one of those things that you might think you know a lot about, but you don’t. After all, you’ve probably spent hours picking out the perfect pattern, and you’ve probably even got it up on your walls, right?
But you may not know the best way to choose the right size of wallpaper for your walls. And the truth is, choosing the wrong size can cause you to doubt yourself. So we asked our friends at the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) to share some tips on how to choose the right size of wallpaper for your walls. Here are their top five tips for selecting the right size of wallpaper for your walls.
- Choose the Right Size of Wallpaper for Your Walls.
- Use a tape measure. The right size of wallpaper is measured by the wall’s height and width. Make sure you measure the total length and width of the wall space and add about an inch extra for each inch of paper. This will help ensure that you have enough wallpaper to cover the entire wall without leaving any gaps or bare spots.
- Measure twice, cut once. We recommend that you measure the wall space in its entirety with a tape measure to determine the exact dimensions.
- Use the tape measure to mark the center of the wall at the height you wish to hang your wallpaper. Then, mark the center of the wall in both directions, one foot from each corner. Draw a line on the wall using the tape measure and a pencil. The pencil will be used to measure the wall later on. Now, place the measuring tape at the marks you made earlier, aligning the tape with the pencil line. Hold the tape firmly against the wall and measure it.
- Cut the wallpaper. Once you have determined the size of the paper you need, cut it to size. It’s important to make sure that you get a straight edge as well. A pair of scissors will come in handy for this task.
- Peel and stick wallpaper. Remember, you will want to remove the backing paper from the back of the wallpaper. This can be done by gently pulling the paper up with your fingertips. Remove the backing paper carefully.
- Apply the wallpaper to the wall. Position the wallpaper so that it covers the entire wall, leaving no bare spots or gaps. Use a level to ensure that the wall is flat.
- Press down firmly on the paper to ensure that it sticks properly to the wall.
- Smooth the edges.
How to choose the right color for your walls.
Color is one of the most important design elements in any room, and it’s a powerful way to change the mood and overall feel of a space. But, it’s also a very difficult element to get right.
Choosing the right color for your walls can be a daunting task, especially if you’re not familiar with the process. But, it doesn’t have to be! In this post, we’ll take you through the process of choosing the right color for your walls, so you can start designing your space with confidence.
The first step is to figure out what your vision is for your space.
- Do you want to create a warm, cozy room? Or,
- Do you want to focus on a specific color and use that as a theme for the entire space?
- If you’re new to decorating, it may be hard to know what your vision is for your space.
This will help determine the overall feel of your space.
- If you want a bright, cheerful room, a yellow or orange color scheme will create a happy atmosphere.

- There are many ways to go about doing this. You could use paint samples, reference images from magazines or books, or you could even try using an app like ColorSnap.

If you have no idea where to look, then I am here to help. Wallpaper prices can vary widely from store to store. Wallpaper prices are usually set by the manufacturer, but they do offer discounts to retailers and sometimes even to consumers.
What is the minimum price for wallpaper?
There are many different kinds of wallpaper, and some of them are more expensive than others. The most expensive kind of wallpaper is the kind that you can’t buy at a store; it’s made by a wallpaper manufacturer who has his printing presses and uses his inks.
Wallpaper is sold in three basic types:
paper wall covering, vinyl wall covering, and adhesive wall covering.
How much does a roll of wallpaper cost?
Well, if you are looking to get a roll of wallpaper (about 70×120 cm) from a local shop, it may cost about $3.50 at the local grocery store.
Lastly, is it cheaper to paint or wallpaper?
I’m torn between painting and wallpaper. I’d like to do both, but not sure if the money is worth it. What are your thoughts? My gut tells me to go with the wallpaper. It’s more durable, and you can get it off at any time if it doesn’t look right.
