About 1800-Wallpaper


There's a motto we live by at 1800-WALLPAPER: don't be right, get it right. It embodies the spirit of continual improvement, helping ourselves and the world become a better place every day by recognizing problems and finding solutions.

That spirit comes from the top, 1800Wallpaper founders Lorenzo & joe. They took a simple idea - that there should be an easier and more reliable way to install wallpaper, invested lots of hard work and turned it into a thriving national company. First, they saw that commercial properties, like hotels, were running into big problems renovating their old hallways and rooms. Wallpaper installation takes so much time and money and contractors could be fickle. 1800wallpaper provided the solution, letting commercial and residential  spaces give their patrons the luxurious wallpaper installation, hotels are famous for, and get back to business sooner.

Lorenzo  believe home owners deserve the same beautiful walls as 5-star hotels, without the extensive and extended installation time that can seriously inconvenience home life. So they quickly expanded their offerings for residential homes. For more than 25 years, 1800wallpaper has worked to perfect that process to bring everyone beautiful walls that takes into account real people's needs. That's why 1800wallpaper, are installed in one day for ultimate convenience. We still work every single day to be better and to continually improve our service time and our customers' lives.

That's the 1800wallpaper promise — the spirit of continual improvement guides us as we look forward to a long future of serving our communities and getting it right.
