The History of Wallpaper
Residential wallpaper and wall coverings were an innovation in the Middle Ages to brighten the stark, bare walls of most homes. The wealthy aristocracy was prone to hang heavy tapestries to both insulate and beautify the cold stone walls of castles and manor houses. The less financially gifted took to hanging decorated paper on their walls to emulate the rich.
Early developments in printing wallpaper came about in both England and France, resulting in standardized patterns and sizes of rolls. Hanging wallpaper became a fine art; matching the patterns and minimizing the cut-off-waste from the rolls, and soon a Guild of Paperhangers was established in Europe.
Many types of wall coverings materials were developed, some of which are still used today. Before printing, hand painted paper was the norm, often featuring nature scenes, landscapes, historic events and mosaics, some of which were huge. Today, photography art is sometimes used for wallpaper murals so realistic that a viewer can think they are looking through a window into a garden or park. Silk, rice paper, grass paper, metallic paper and other patterned mediums have been used at times, but today the predominant wallpaper isn’t actually paper, but vinyl. Vinyl wallpaper is durable and easy to work with.
Professionally Hung Wallpaper
Wall coverings are best hung by professionals who know how to prepare the substrate for their application. The walls should be smooth, level and free of any contaminants in order to assure proper bonding. In addition, there are areas of a house not suitable for wallpaper like bathrooms where airborne moisture from bathing can loosen or damage the adhesion and paper. Kitchens and laundry rooms, where there may be a concentration of heat and moisture, will probably require special preparation before applying any wall coverings.
