What’s the Difference Between Wallpaper and Wallcoverings?

The word wallpaper conjures up different images for different people. Some think of the weird fruit print in their grandma’s kitchen while others get excited about the classy possibilities of today’s modern, commercial wallpaper and wallcoverings. The high end, commercial grade products used by our wallpaper and wallcovering installation team are certainly not your grandma’s wallpaper.


To get a better understanding of how to use these products in your commercial space, let’s go over the differences between wallpaper and wallcoverings and talk about what they can do for you.


What Is the Difference Between Wallpaper and Wallcoverings?

Wallpaper Vs. Wallcoverings

Commercial wallcoverings bring texture, pattern and style to your space in a way that paint alone cannot. They also protect your walls with a durable coating, adding not only stunning visual interest but outstanding protection. Commercial wallcoverings are an ideal choice for restaurants, schools, and salons as they can handle spills and splashes. True, choosing a commercial wallcovering is a more expensive option. But, when installed by one of our wallcovering artisans, you’ll get a sophisticated ambiance that is worth every penny.

Commercial Wallpaper, on the other hand, offers endless possibilities of color, print and style. It’s more in line with the wallpaper you can get at the big box store, but commercial grade construction means it comes with long lasting durability unavailable in residential wallpaper. Although it is not as durable as it’s wallcovering cousin, it will stand up to daily wear and tear as well as wiping and dusting.


The Kaloutas commercial wallpaper installation team has years of experience in seamless application of both wallcoverings and wallpaper. No matter which option you go with, our professional team will install it to perfection, leaving you with a stylish investment that will last for decades.
