The periodes in Contemporary Wallpaper
1920s – 1940s Wallpapers: Wallpaper produced by block printing. Cut-out borders and decorative panels featuring geometric or floral patterns combined with lightly embossed, plain or semi-plain backgrounds.
1950s-1960s Wallpapers : The start of mass production and design movement of the 1950s featured less fussy effects. A new style was born characterized with flat, linear patterns and abstract geometric motifs, invigorated by an explosion of bright colour and fascinating Pop designs in the 1960s. Mass production and new processes led to the first pre-trimmed and ready-pasted papers appeared, quickly followed by laminated papers, metallic finishes and vinyl wallpapers.
1970s-1980s Wallpapers : The late 1970s and 1980s represented a high point for many wallpaper manufacturers when sales were strong and designs were bold and modern. But the oil crisisled to a significant reduction in the size of the industry world-wide, with many firms going out of business or being taken over by large international corporations. Faster and lower quality of production led to the end of its popularity.

How to hang wallpaper? Just follow these 6 simple steps:
1. Prepare the surface for wallpapering: fill cracks with a filler, and equalize the wall. Let everything dry and sand smooth. Possibly you might give the surface a primer layer in the color of the wallpaper.
2. Cut all the strips of wallpaper to the right length and put them next to each other. When cutting don’t forget taking the pattern into account. To be sure that the strips are long enough, take a 20cm allowance at the top and bottom of each strip.
3. Glue the surface with wallpaper paste, for this use a wallpaper brush. Be generous with the glue and spread them as evenly as possible over the surface. Spread the glue wider out than the width of the wallpaper strip.
4. Apply the first strip of wallpaper and press down firmly with a wallpaper roller.
5. Glue the remaining strips of wallpaper with good connections along each edge. Remove adhesive residue immediately with a damp cloth.
6. Cut off the excess wallpaper at the top and bottom.
