Wallpaper can dramatically change the look of a room. Wallpaper can add texture, color and/or designs to a room. It can be a single, solid color, a pattern, a picture and can even include textures. Some wallpaper includes glittery or shiny surfaces.
When wallpapering a room, put on a base coat first. Otherwise getting it off later may be very difficult. As when painting a wall, preparing the wall first will make the treatment look better.
Sometimes wallpaper can be used to provide a decorative surface for other objects, such as boxes or shelves.
There are some relatively new types of wallpaper which are designed to be temporary. Sometimes they are called apartment wallpaper.
