During the Napoleonic Wars, trade between Europe and Britain evaporated, resulting in the gradual decline of the wallpaper industry in Britain. However, the end of the war saw a massive demand in Europe for British products that had been inaccessible during the wars, including cheap and colorful wallpaper.
The development of steam printing presses in Britain in 1813 allowed manufacturers to produce serial wallpaper, reducing its price and making it affordable for working class people. The wallpaper enjoyed a great popularity boom in the 19th century, seen as a cheap and very effective way to illuminate the narrow, dark rooms in working-class areas.
It became almost the norm in most areas of middle-class homes, but remained relatively unused in public buildings and offices, with patterns that are generally avoided in those places. In the second half of the century, Lincrusta and Anaglypta, which were not strictly wallpapers, became popular competitors, especially under a given rail. They could be painted and washed, and they were much harder, but also more expensive.
Wall-making firms established in England in the 19th century included Jeffrey & Co .; Shand Kydd Ltd .; Lightbown, Aspinall & Co. John Line & Sons; Potter & Co. Arthur Sanderson & Sons; Townshend and Parker. The designers included Owen Jones, William Morris and Charles Voysey. In particular, many nineteenth century designs by Morris & Co and other Arts and Crafts designers are still in production.
By the early twentieth century, wallpaper had established itself as one of the most popular household items throughout the western world. Manufacturers in the USA UU They included Sears; the designers included Andy Warhol. Wallpaper came in and went out of style after 1930, but the general trend has been for wall coverings with wallpaper designs to lose ground on walls painted in plain colors.
At the beginning of the 21st century, wallpaper evolved into a lighting function, improving the environment and the environment through lights and crystals. Meystyle, a company based in London, invented the built-in LED wallpaper. The development of digital printing allows designers to break the mold and combine new technology and art to bring the wallpaper to a new level of popularity.
Cultural institutions such as the Deutsches Tapetenmuseum (Kassel) in Germany preserve historical examples of wallpaper, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs (Paris) and Musée du Papier Peint (Rixheim) in France; Victoria & Albert in the United Kingdom; Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt, Historic New England, Metropolitan Museum of Art, US National Park Service, and Winterthur in the United States. The original designs of William Morris and other wallpaper companies in English are in the hands of Walker Greenbank.
In terms of creation methods, the types of wallpaper include painted wallpaper, hand-printed blockwood wallpaper, hand-printed stencil wallpaper, machine-printed wallpaper and flock wallpaper.
Modern wall coverings are diverse, and what is described as wallpaper can no longer be made of paper. Two of the most common factory trimmed wallpaper sizes are known as "American" and "European" laminate products. US rolled products have a length of 27 inches (69 cm) by 27 feet (8.2 m). European rolled products are 52 centimeters (20 inches) wide by 10 meters (33 feet) long, approximately 5.2 square meters (56 square feet). Most wallpaper edges are sold by length and with a wide range of widths, so the surface area is not applicable, although some may require trimming.
The most common wall covering for residential use and, in general, the most economical one is pre-stamped vinyl coated paper, commonly called "removable", which can be misleading. Vinyl with fabric backing is quite common and durable. Lighter vinyls are easier to handle and hang. Paper backed vinyls are generally more expensive, much harder to hang and can be found in wider widths without cropping. The foil wallpaper is usually paper-backed and can (exceptionally) be up to 36 inches (91 cm) wide, and can be very difficult to manipulate and hang. Textile wallpapers include silks, bedding, grass fabrics, rope, rattan and real printed sheets. There are acoustic wall carpets to reduce the sound. Custom wall coverings are available at high prices and most often have minimum roll orders.
Solid vinyl with cloth backing is the most common commercial wallcovering  and comes uncut from the factory to approximately 54 inches (140 cm) approximately, for the installer to overlap and fold it. This same type can be trimmed at the factory to approximately 27 inches (69 cm).
The wallpaper is also presented as "edges", which are usually hung horizontally on top of the walls, and on top of the siding. Border wallpaper comes in a variety of colors and patterns, straight or shaped edges, and widths (sometimes called 'heights' due to its orientation), and is used to provide a finished look to walls that already They are hung with printed wallpaper, or as an accent For painted walls or on plain paper. Some wallpapers that are on the edge are decorated with images and even with writing, which, when hung, can tell a simple story or a well-known subject, such as fairy tales, poems, pictographs of alphabets or numbers, or works religious. In modern Western homes, these are known as "friezes" and commonly adorn nurseries and children's rooms. They can also be found in classrooms and libraries.
Non-woven wallpaper: non-woven wallpaper is made from a mixture of chemical pulp and textile fibers, and is used alone or as a backing for other types of wallpaper. When hanging this wallpaper, the paste is applied directly to the wall, after which the wallpaper will be kept without time reserve.
Paper wallpaper: Made of recyclable paper. It is also used as support material for other wallpapers. When paper is used as a wallpaper, the reservation time should be considered.
Photo and metallic wallpaper: these wallpapers are applied to a backing material such as paperless or paperless wallpaper. When producing a wallpaper for photos, the image will be printed on a paper support. To create a metallic optical wallpaper, the coating of the backing material consists of a sheet of metal such as aluminum.
Custom wallpaper printing
New digital inkjet printing technologies using ultraviolet (UV) curing inks are being used for the production of custom wallpaper.
