This product is great for the novice paper hanger! I was very nervous about spending this kind of money on paper when I hadn't wallpapered in many years. The paper is strong and very workable - doesn't tear or stretch out (this was important working in tight areas in the bathroom). The stripe, the repeat and the random pattern made hanging a cinch! I am so happy with the color mix! My bathroom is now light and airy and updated. I followed the instructions of pasting the wall in addition to using "pre-pasted" paper, so I am confident it will last for years in the bathroom. Now to tackle the kitchen - a much bigger room with lots of turns and edges.
