What are the different types of textured wallpapers? 

There are a plethora of textured wallpapers that you can choose from. Here are some different types of textured wallpapers that you can install this year.

  1. Visual Textured Wallpaper

As the name suggests, this type of wallpaper visually appears textured but when you get closer and touch it, you will realise that it has a smoother surface. The 3D textured effect is made possible with the help of hues, shadows and highlights. Faux effect wallpapers like brick, wood and concrete walls are all visual textured wallpapers. These wallpapers are minimalistic, yet they instantly accentuate a place and make it look chic and classy.

  1. Light Textured Wallpaper 

These wallpapers are slightly raised and have a more defined tactile finish in comparison to the visual textured wallpapers. Wallpapers made of grasscloth, cork and glass beads fall under this category. People who want to add a touch of elegance and personality into their space but aren’t willing to go bold can consider going for this subtle yet stylish textured wallpaper type. If you have a bohemian themed house, then you can consider getting a beige basket weave grasscloth wallpaper in the living room.

  1. Highly Textured Wallpaper 

Just like light-textured wallpaper, highly textured wallpapers come in grasscloth, natural fabric and glass bead material, however, they have a more defined and rougher textured surface. Since the textures are so obvious, they are great if you want your walls to be the showstopper of a room. Not only does this type of wallpaper add a real oomph to your room’s aesthetic but it is also great to hide the dents and imperfections on the walls. A pro tip is to use Asian Paints’ Nilaya wallpapers in your bedroom to make it look opulent without spending a fortune.

What to keep in mind before you buy a textured wallpaper? 

  • Remember to buy a sample of the textured wallpaper and observe throughout the day how it reacts to light to make an informed decision.
  • If you are sceptical about using textured wallpaper throughout a room, you can pick the ceiling or a feature wall and experiment with textured wallpapers on them.
  • Keep in mind that textured wallpapers made of fragile materials like grasscloth are ideal for low traffic areas like your bedroom or study.
