Is yours a specialty wallpaper? Is it made of silk, or hand-painted, or a photo mural? Wallpaper ranges from tissue-thin hand-made papers to heavy-duty commercial vinyl wallcoverings. Thinner, more fragile wallpapers are actually more difficult to work with. And don’t get us started on heavily textured or embossed papers, such as wallpapers covered in glass beads or mica flakes! They’re a nightmare to cut and unbelievably heavy to install. (But they sure look pretty!) In general, wallpapers that are hand-painted, metallic, fabric, or “untrimmed” will require a pricing adjustment. Wallpapers that are harder to work with will cost more to install than the pricing in our cost guide above.
