Wallpaper for kitchen and bathroom - these are wallpapers also suitable for the wet rooms
Do you associate trendy tiles that are functional with kitchens and bathrooms? This blog post proves that wallpapers are also suitable for the bathroom and kitchen. Various designs can turn your bathroom into the wellness area of a luxury hotel and create a lingering atmosphere in your kitchen. It doesn’t always have to be the boring tile mirror, which by the way can be quite expensive without any prior knowledge.
Wallpaper in the kitchen or bathroom – what should you pay attention to?
If you choose the wallpaper for a kitchen or bathroom, you should pay attention to the composition of the materials. In general, a distinction is made between the carrier and the surface material of a wallpaper. The carrier material can be decisive for the optics and robustness in a damp room. You have the choice between a paper and a non-woven wallpaper. But even the surface material or the coating decides whether wallpaper is suitable for installation in the bathroom or the kitchen. However, in principle, it is not advisable to install it in the immediate shower area.
The paper wallpaper
Paper wallpaper is very breathable and environmentally friendly. If the surface is merely wrinkled, gathered, embossed or printed, the wallpaper is less likely to be used in the bathroom or kitchen because the material may wrinkle and warp under increased humidity. The main reason is that it does not have high dimensional stability. This is already apparent when wallpapering - as the paper wallpaper strips with the paste must be soaked and can easily tear.
The non-woven wallpaper
Non-Woven wallpaper is ideal for installation in the bathroom or kitchen. A wallpaper with a carrier made of nonwoven offers air and vapour permeability and is water-resistant. In addition, fleece is dimensionally stable, so that the wallpaper retains its shape under the influence of water vapour and moisture. Since the material is also very light, the wallpaper will not detach from the wall even at high humidity.
Advantages and disadvantages of a vinyl coating
A vinyl coating can be applied to a paper or non-woven backing. With a non-woven wallpaper with a vinyl coating, you get one of the toughest and most durable wallpaper. A particular advantage, especially for kitchen or bathroom, is that the wallpaper is resistant to scrubbing and therefore - resistant to water splashes.
However, a wallpaper made of vinyl is not quite air and vapour absorptive. If a minor crack in the vinyl wallpaper would form, water can get under the wallpaper and promote the growth of mold. So if you decide on a wallpaper in the kitchen or bathroom, a non-woven wallpaper without vinyl or PVC coating is a perfect choice!
