Grasscloth wallpaper looks amazing and can create a more peaceful feel in any room. As the unique wallpaper gains in popularity, wallpaper manufacturers have created several different looks to better align with a particular tone or style.
Finding the right grasscloth begins with determining which type of grasscloth wallpaper you want. There are two primary types of grasscloth:
- Natural grasscloth
- Vinyl grasscloth
Once you know which of the two you want, you have a lot of choices as to the look. To help you choose the right pattern, this article highlights the five most popular patterns.
Natural Versus Vinyl
Natural grasscloth has texture and an asymmetrical beauty that draws the eyes to admire the entire room instead of a small aspect (such as a repeating design). It is often handcrafted, giving it the elegant appearance that also comes at a high price. The grass fibers are built into the wallpaper, so that when you touch it, you can actually feel all of the different textures that make up the wallpaper. Because it is easier to tear than traditional wallpapers, it is best to keep it in rooms where there is not a lot of traffic.
Vinyl grasscloth is made by machines and lacks the texture of the natural grasscloth wallpapers. While it lacks some of the elegance of natural grasscloth, it is usually less expensive and considerably more durable. Manufacturers have even found ways to create the illusion of a natural grasscloth so that the only way to tell that it is vinyl is by touching the wallpaper.
