5 Advantages for trying wallpaper

• It’s inexpensive.

Solid fabric costs as little as $2 per pre-cut 10-square-foot panel or $1.50 per yard of uncut fabric; patterned fabric goes for as little as $8 per 10-square-foot panel, or $7 per yard, making the cost to wallpaper a 10-by-10-foot wall as little as $10.50. Traditional wallpaper goes for $25 to $50 per roll of 25 square feet, and temporary wallpaper starts at $1 per square foot, so you’d pay at least $100 to cover a 10-by-10-foot wall with either option.

It can be quickly, cleanly removed.

Fabric wallpaper is removable with a water-dampened sponge without damaging or leaving residue on the wall behind it. Taking off temporary wallpaper is also fairly easy but tends to leave some of its clear topcoats behind. Removing traditional wallpaper is a messy, time-consuming process.

• It’s mold resistant.

Fabric is breathable and porous, allowing air to freely pass in and out. This makes fabric wallpaper less hospitable to mold spores and less susceptible to mold growth than traditional wallpaper and most temporary wallpaper.

• It can discolor with heat.

The baking soda in some commercial liquid starches can cause fabric wallpaper to take on a yellow tinge when exposed to heat, making it a less-than-ideal choice for behind stovetops, dryers, or other heat-generating appliances. Choosing a dark-colored fabric can help minimize discoloration.

• It’s vulnerable to moisture.

Liquid starch tends to dissolve with exposure to water, increasing the likelihood that your fabric wallpaper will loosen and come away from the surface if installed in splash-prone environments like the bathroom or kitchen.
