Textured or embossed wallpaper is a great material for enhancing your home. Its raised patterns add visual interest and subtle detail to a space. Since it's been around since the Victorian era (granted not in the peel and stick variety) it's also looks super classy and old-school, which is great if you want to customize what you've got and make it look more special.
