There are some very modern metallic wallpapers around now which are very fashion forward and striking for a visual impact. These papers have a metal plastic film on the paper backing. It is great for darker or smaller areas as the shiny surface will reflect the light so is a great way to play with light in a room. It is also washable. This paper is a fine wallpaper so it is always recommended to use a lining paper first to ensure an even result, preventing any wall surface imperfections from showing through.
