Decorative materials, such as wallpapers, carpets and upholstery, play a key role in arranging hotel interiors. They directly affect not only the aesthetics but also the comfort of the rooms. The materials used during the renovation should be durable and cost-effective. Frequent painting of the walls usually entails the necessity to close the room and the discomfort of guests. Therefore, hoteliers choose contract wallcovering services more and more often. Thanks to wallpapers, hotels acquire a friendly, cosy expression, and intriguing patterns distinguish the property from others, creating its unique atmosphere.
Hotel wallpaper is a way to create economical and beautiful decor. The advantages of the wallpaper include many patterns, hiding small irregularities, adding cosiness and durability to the interior. Hotel wallpapers also protect the walls against upholstery, dust and abrasions. The wallpaper has a decorative effect, and in case of damage, only one strip can be replaced. Construction experts recommend sound-absorbing wallpapers for hotel rooms that reduce noise from other rooms and provide a friendly acoustic climate. There is no need to stick wallpaper on all walls in a hotel room, especially if the pattern is large. An interesting arrangement can also be achieved by placing the wallpaper on one wall, especially if it is a pattern made in the 3D technique.
Types of Hotel Wallpaper
Cellulose Fibre wallpapers are typically used in bedrooms and dining rooms. This type of wallpaper is inexpensive
and easy to find. However, they are not washable, and the colours may fade with time. They are also less resistant to humidity when compared with other materials.
Lining wallpaper does not come with any design or printed finish. Usually is used to cover imperfections or prepare the wall or ceiling for further painting or papering. Lining wallpaper can hide darker colours on the wall if you plan to paint it with a lighter colour.
Bamboo fibre wallpaper is a natural wallpaper that brings texture and atmosphere. This type of wallpaper may be more susceptible to moisture and dust.
Vinyl wallpaper contains paper or fabric backing mixed with a vinyl or acrylic coating. The vinyl surface makes this type of wallpaper more durable and easier to clean. They are perfect for hotels with high traffic areas. Vinyl wallpapers are also more light-resistant, durable and affordable compared to paper or fibre wallpapers. Vinyl is a good choice for dining rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms.
Embossed wallpaper is textured and can be used alone or painted with colour. The most popular colours of embossed wallpapers are stone and cream. It’s a great choice to hide wall cracks, scratches or imperfections. Very often used as a natural and neutral background.
Non-woven wallpaper contains an ecological substrate made of natural and synthetic fibres. This makes it breathable and washable. Non-woven wallpaper is suitable for kitchens and bathrooms.
Fibreglass wallpaper is environmentally friendly, made from nontoxic components such as soda, quartz, lime or dolomite and very durable. This type of wallpaper provides a free flow of water vapour and creates a healthy climate. The finishing is resistant to bacteria or mould.
Textile wallpapers range from casual to extravagant. They can be made from natural or synthetic materials. They are also double-layered, consisting of woven fabric material, followed by a non-woven substrate such as cotton, silk, linen, raffia, twines, felt, or even feathers for an exceptional and fashionable look. Textile premium quality wallpapers are stain-resistant, breathable, and flame-resistant.
Modern and Classic Hotel Interiors
It is believed that geometric patterns work better in modern interiors, and floral ornaments look best in classic or
rustic rooms. Another trend recommends hoteliers to be bold in combining patterns, looking for surprising material and colour mixing. Then, interiors differ from the classic understanding of the arrangement of a hotel room. No matter what style the hotelier chooses, the most important is good quality. Our experience shows that non-woven wallpaper works best, as it is durable, resistant to light and has a fire-resistance certificate. The layer of non-woven fabric protects the wallpaper against wrinkling, tearing, stretching, and gives it elasticity. Thanks to this, the wallpaper adheres perfectly to the wall and sticking it does not cause any problems.
