Most wallpapers will indicate the pattern match on the back. A random match wallpaper is the easiest to work with. This means that the strips of wallpaper may be hung together without worrying about the pattern matching up at the seams. A vertical stripe wallpaper, grasscloth, or textures are all good examples of random match patterns.
A straight match matches across the wallpaper, or in other words it matches the pattern from the other side of the strip. It is not complex and you will easily be able to see how the strips need to be hung to make a seamless pattern across the wall.
A drop match wallpaper has a design that matches up across strips both vertically and horizontally. There are multiple types of drop matches (most are half-drop or a quarter drop). This simply means that the pattern will match up with a different spot in the design for the next strip. You can think of a half drop as half of a straight drop because it will match the same spot in the design every other strip.
Both drop and straight matches will cause some extra waste as you will need to remove more excess from the top as you would with a random match. Patterns with a matches, 24″ or more, may require you to buy additional wallpaper rolls to complete the project.
As long as the room is well ventilated and the walls are in good condition, wallpaper can normally be used in bathrooms. However, with the exception of our vinyl papers, they should not be placed in areas where they are likely to come into contact with water.
In order to help prevent against problems when using wallpapers in a high humidity areas, we recommend using a sealer like Polyvine on top of the wallpaper which will provide better protection against moisture. We advise you test Polyvine on a wallpaper sample to check you are happy with the finish before applying to the wall.
