Wallpaper is commonly sold by 10m rolls and the widths can either be 52cm, 70cm or 100cm wide. Some suppliers’ wallpapers e.g. Thibaut and Anna French, are supplied in different configurations and these will be specified in the product detail. You will need to take the pattern repeat into consideration when calculating how many rolls you will need. It is wise to purchase an additional roll if the budget permits. This will come in handy if any mistakes are made in installing or in case of future damage.

Non-woven - Its main advantages are air and vapour permeability (the wall beneath is protected from mildew growth), firmness and light fastness. It offers good heat and sound insulation and remains dimensionally stable. Working with non-woven wallpaper is easier than other types of wallpaper.

Vinyl - Vinyl wallcoverings are popular because of high durability and easy maintenance, wipeability, colour fastness, scratch protection and partial thermal insulation. It can be applied to various surfaces, e. g. plaster, concrete, drywall or formica. It is effective in covering small cracks and is well suited to high traffic areas.

Grasscloth - Grasscloth is a handcrafted wallcovering of interwoven exotic grasses. As a natural and modern wallcovering, grasscloth adds much desired warmth and texture to your home. Besides adding texture, grasscloth also absorbs noise and covers any wall imperfections. As with any natural fibre, colour variations and visibility of joins are amongst the qualities of grasscloth wallcoverings. Please consider this when ordering as St Leger & Viney will not be held responsible for natural colour variations and visibility of joins.
The repeat is the number in meters or centimeters, marking the length or interval after which the wallpaper pattern repeats. The repeat is important in calculating the required amount of wallpaper. When you hang the wallpaper, you can position the strips of wallpaper next to each other, aligning the pattern vertically, or you can shift the pattern repeat in exactly half its length on the next strip. A longer pattern repeat means higher consumption of wallpaper.
