Removable Wallpaper, eco-friendly and reusable?....... Is there such a thing?

Non-woven wallpapers are revolutionising the wallpaper industry and the way we all think about wallpaper. Gone are the days when wallpaper was impossible to put up and even more impossible to tear down, leaving so many of us to look at the same dreary wallpaper which decorated our parents home for so many years.

Non-woven wallpapers are easy to install, allowing you to paste the wall or the backing without soaking the wallpaper in messy glue. They don't expand or contract like the old days and once on the wall, they will slide making the lining up of the pattern a little bit easier. 
They are also tear resistant so there is no tearing of paper while installing or removing to reposition.

They are made of both natural and synthetic fibres. Non-woven wallpapers are both washable and breathable, making them resistant to mildew & mold unlike the old wallpapers.

But the real benefit of non-wovern wallpaper is the fact that after approx. six weeks of hanging (once they are completely dry) they will come off easily, there is no wall damage when removing the wallpaper.  It can be completely dry when you remove it, there is no need for the dreaded steamer or water to take it down and it will come down in full sheets and can actually be re-used again if you so desired, making it a decorating option for people who rent their homes.

So if you are worried that hanging wallpaper in your childs room will result in a long & tedious fight with a wallpaper steamer once your child has grown out of the design, don't be, as the whole process will be easier than painting.

Choosing the perfect wallpaper for your child's room

When my mother was pregnant with me, her first child, she spent the weeks prior to my arrival painting my skirting yellow & choosing the wallpaper which would decorate my room for the next seven years. 
She chose a cute Oranges & Lemons themed wallpaper, because of the nursery rhyme and it was a wallpaper which would be suitable for a boy or a girl. 
This wallpaper kept me intrigued as a child. The trees themselves growing with beautiful ripe oranges & lemons & the parade of people dancing around the trees holding each others shirts, laughing and having a joyful time. I remember this wallpaper still. It held my attention as a child, it intrigued me and captured my imagination. I wondered where the people lived, what were they celebrating, which one of the people I would want to be dancing behind or in  front of. There was a lot going on in this wallpaper and because of this I could use it as an escape to another world, I got lost in it and I don't remember ever being bored of it.

When choosing a wallpaper for your child's room, the choice should not just be about the colour and your child's favourite theme, these things should be a factor in the decision.
A good wallpaper will capture their imagination, it will stimulate their minds & help them grow. The images should be detailed, have movement and personality, enabling their imagination and giving the child a place to escape to. 
UK based PaperBoy do this well, their 'How it Works' wallpaper gives a quirky view to what goes on inside 
animals and how they move.
They show dedicated teams of mini-engineers oiling the cogs and greasing the joints that keep the creatures rolling along. 
Children can spend hours examining the mechanics and discovering these teeny tiny maintenance men which live inside these creatures.        
 'How it Works' Wallpaper and samples plus the full PaperBoy Collection is sold at
