What is non-woven wallpaper?
Traditional wallpaper as we know it is made of paper, while non-woven wallpaper is made of cellulose and textile or polyester fibres compressed with a binder. This wall covering revolutionised the wallpaper market some twenty years ago, and has since held the upper hand in wall decoration.
Why choose non-woven wallpaper?
This wallpaper has plenty of advantages:
Easier to install
The main advantage of non-woven wallpaper is its ease of installation. It is estimated that this type of wallpaper can be installed 30% faster than conventional wallpaper. How is this possible? Because there is one less step in the installation process: no more pre-gluing on a wallpapering table and waiting for the wallpaper to expand. With non-woven wallpaper, the wall is directly glued with a roller and the wallpaper is laid dry. And in addition to being simple, this product is also cleaner!
If you are new to wallpapering, you can easily hang your first wallpaper!
Hidden wall defects
Another special feature of non-woven paper is that it is thicker than traditional wallcovering. This means that there is no need to prepare the wall prior to installation. The installation itself will be sufficient to cover imperfections such as roughness, cracks or surface irregularities. This is an advantage not available with traditional wallpaper, which is thinner.
The composition of non-woven wallpapers makes them a particularly durable covering. Whereas there is a risk with traditional wallpaper that it may expand or tear, you will not face these problems with non-woven wallpaper. This quality wallpaper ha a longer lifespan than its predecessor.
A painless drop-off
With non-woven wallpaper, easy installation means easy removal! The wallpaper can be removed in one piece, so forget about the wallpaper remover! This trendy interior wallpaper is ideal for those who like to change their wall decoration regularly.

Why choose non-woven wallpaper to paint?
Wallpaper or paint? This is often the big dilemma when it comes to rethinking your wall decoration.
Although paint is a very attractive wall covering, it is not the most practical one, as it requires perfect preparation of the wall and protection of the floor and furniture in the room. After an undercoat, at least two other layers will be required for optimal rendering. The smell will then be strong for several days.
This is where non-woven wallpaper comes in. This high quality and very modern wallpaper stand out for its many advantages seen below, making it much more attractive than its cousin, paint.
