Wallpaper is a staple of interior design in both residential and commercial spaces. But despite the visual interest it provides, wallpaper is not without its faults. For instance, it can be particularly problematic in homes or buildings with excess moisture, since the water will collect underneath the paper, potentially causing unsightly stains and mold growth. However, we have a solution for this: perforated wallpaper.
Perforated wallpaper has tiny holes or micro-vents that allow moisture to escape through it. This means it is a suitable wall covering even in spaces that aren’t normally suited to wallpaper. Here are a few examples of places to use perforated wallpaper:
- Bathrooms- Because of shower steam and splashing water from bathtubs and sinks, bathrooms are damper and more humid than any other room in a house. If you have had trouble with wallpaper in bathrooms before, perforated wallpaper may be the answer to your problem.
- Basements- Basements are another example of notoriously damp rooms because they are located below the ground where soil soaks up water when it rains. Even with moisture control like sump pumps or dehumidifiers, it never hurts to use moisture-resistant materials. Perforated wallpaper can help liven up your basement without the risk of mold growing behind the paper.
- Laundry Rooms- For obvious reasons, laundry rooms in homes or commercial spaces are moisture-prone spaces. Maybe you don’t care about having an aesthetically pleasing laundry room, but if you do, you should consider perforated wallpaper.
