Grasscloth Wallpaper NYC – Buy it at Beckenstein

If you’re looking to buy grasscloth wallpaper in NYC, look no further. Beckenstein has it!

Grasscloth wallpaper has made a huge comeback. In part, it’s charm is in its irregularities! Because of the nature of the plant fibres, as well as the production process, there are oftentimes inevitable irregularities regarding the aspect and thickness of the wall covering, including color shades. But this is actually what gives the product its charm and unique character!!

Here are some frequently asked questions about grasscloth wallpaper:

Can grasscloth be used in a bathroom or other room that experiences high levels of humidity?

The short answer is “no.” Grasscloth is absorbent and can only be cleaned using a vacuum cleaner—not any other standard bathroom or surface cleaners, as it could damage the grasscloth. If, however, you have a bathroom that is very large and doesn’t get steamy, by all means, give it a shot!! But please do be mindful of the nature of the grasscloth wallpaper.

How do you match grasscloth wallpaper?

Because of the nature of grasscloth, you don’t match it. The natural, non-dyed grasscloth wallpaper is never going to be uniform in color. As mentioned above, this is in large part the beauty of grasscloth wallpaper!!

Anything else to keep in mind about grasscloth wallpaper?

Well, yeah!! And this is by no means an exhaustive list of questions. But here’s one more thing to keep in mind: CATS. Cats LOVE climbing up and scratching grasscloth wallpaper, especially one with deep ridges between the thicker fibres. So, keep that in mind if you have a cat, or if Michelle Pfieffer lives there.
