One of the most remarkable innovations in the field of wallpaper is the use of non-woven as a carrier material. From the photo wallpaper to the classic pattern wallpaper, fleece is increasingly used by many manufacturers. And with good reason!
What makes the non-woven wallpaper so special
Compared to paper wallpaper, the fibers of the non-woven wallpaper are significantly longer, which results in many advantages for wallpapering.
The easy processing in particular speaks for non-woven wallpapers. Simple wallpapering means that the non-woven wallpaper can be wallpapered using the so-called wall adhesive technique. The paste is applied directly to the wall. Then the wallpaper can be stuck dry on the wall - without soaking time - without wallpapering table!
But the long fleece fibers have other advantages. Non-woven wallpapers are dimensionally stable, which means that they do not contract when they dry or do not expand under moisture. If it is often an art with paper wallpaper to glue the individual sheets together without visible seams, this is child's play with fleece.
Important! Special glue is required to glue non-woven wallpapers. However, these are now commercially available and can be obtained from any hardware store. Another advantage is that they do not contain any organic binders. Therefore, they cannot form a breeding ground for mold like moist paper paste.
Areas of application for non-woven wallpapers
Non-woven wallpapers can be used in any living, work or leisure area without hesitation. Fleece is more breathable than paper and helps to improve the indoor climate.
However, their excellent water and steam resistance has additional advantages if they are to be used in damp rooms such as bathrooms or kitchens.

Non-woven wallpapers are also particularly suitable if your walls have slight set cracks. The non-woven wallpaper is crack-bridging and covers it without tearing itself.
Wallpaper can be easily removed.
Another advantage of the non-woven wallpaper is its easy removal. Moisten the non-woven wallpaper only briefly and wait until the paste becomes soft again. The non-woven wallpaper can then be pulled off the wall in one go - without tearing - without dissolving into annoying snippets.
You can even reuse non-woven photo wallpapers .
