Skeptics point out the fragility of the coating: they say that in a couple of years they will lose their appearance.
But this idea can be called obsolete, because wallpaper "evolved" from paper to more durable for a long time - let's talk about them:
Vinyl. Unusually practical, subject to the rules of pasting will decorate the room for many years, without losing the pristine beauty.

Glass. Of course, they have little in common with the usual all fragile fragile material. These wallpapers are made of fiberglass, the threads of which are extremely elastic.
This quality greatly facilitates the process of pasting and allows, if desired, to paint the wallpaper in a different color;
