HOMEOWNER'S HANDBOOK

Hanging Wallpaper

Wallpaper first appeared in the 16th century, in the form of black-and-white hand-blocked prints on paper sheets, and it remains a favorite way to bring color, texture, and personality to a home. Originally a luxury material, it became affordable by the mid-1800s with the advent of machine printing.
