Wallpaper Types

There are three main groups of wallpaper, according to how they are applied:

Pre-Pasted Paper

Un-Pasted Paper
Paste The Wall
Paste is already applied to the paper, and the paper needs to be soaked in a water trough to activiate the paste. Paste must be applied to the paper. This can be done with a brush or a pasting machine. Paste is put on to the wall rather than the paper. This is the easiest to hang and easy to remove, simply peels off in one piece.
