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.
