Gray wallpapers in the interior

Choose wallpaper is not as simple as it might seem at first glance. Huge variety is often a hindrance, not an assistant. The theme of wallpaper design is not less extensive, but figuring out some of the nuances, choosing the right option will be easy.

Paper wallpaper is the cheapest, short-lived, they are afraid of moisture, burn out in the sun, are difficult to stick because they soak and shrink. Flizelins have a higher density. As a matter of fact it is the same paper, but with fabric fibers. They look more effective, do not sit down after drying, do not swell, some models can be painted.

Cork wallpaper Vinyl wallpaper has a paper base and vinyl coating with different thickness and density, which makes it moisture resistant, gives good performance. Vinyl coatings are of several types: volumetric (foamed); washable (kitchen); flat (silkscreen). Textile wallpaper belong to the class of luxury, are exquisite decoration of the walls. The face is the fabric. Coating requires careful care.

Living room in gray tones Glass-fiber wallpaper is made with the addition of minerals. They are very durable and have a beautiful embossed surface. Most often they are monophonic. Lincrust - wallpaper on a paper basis with a volumetric pattern, which is created by applying mastic. Outwardly they look as if the walls were covered with plaster moldings.

Textural обои отличаются шероховатым или рельефным покрытием, само понятие «фактура» помогает охарактеризовать поверхность. Рельеф может быть: крупным (объем видно издалека), средним (объем заметен при близком рассмотрении), мелким (визуально сливается, но хорошо заметен на ощупь).

Attention! The concepts of "texture" and "texture" are very similar. The difference is that the texture can be determined by touch and visually.

With texture

Natural materials can not withstand every interior: the bare brick of a spacious loft, the untreated wood of a country house or a heavy stone like open planning. But for the residents of top-end apartments designers can offer a way out - wallpaper that imitates natural material.

Simulation of brick on wallpaper

Modern imitation is quite realistic with finely elaborated details. In any case, it is worth considering that it is very difficult to create a real atmosphere with the help of unreal objects. Interior as a result will get a little ironic, but perhaps this is what you need to achieve.

Wooden decor elements in the living room

Wall-papers simulating natural materials will help create the necessary impression, but they need addition, furniture, accessories, which will make them even more realistic.

Single-color обои являются альтернативой окрашиванию. Их преимущество перед покраской заключается в том, что поверхность под оклеиванием не нужно готовить настолько щепетильно. Краска подчеркнет каждый бугорок и ямку, стены должны быть идеально выштукатурены и зашкурены. Тогда как обои позволяют скрыть некоторые неровности.
