What is Lincrusta paper?
Have you heard of Lincrusta? It’s a deeply embossed premium alternative to wallpaper. The ‘ingredients’ read almost like an upmarket recipe: linseed gel, blended with gum rosin and combined with wax and chalk on a wood flour base.
It’s the type of wall covering that will remind you of architectural mouldings in ornate homes and heritage properties. Developed in the Victorian era by Frederick Walton, its convenience and washability quickly gained a legion of fans across the globe.
Practical, durable and inherently intriguing, its popularity hasn’t faded. One of the earliest sustainable wall coverings, its linseed base will continue to dry for many years. This makes it a resilient choice for both households and businesses.
What’s more, it comes with history and pedigree: chosen for state rooms on the Titanic, to adorn the walls of the White House and as a feature of royal rail carriages.
Choose expert installers
As you might expect, a specialist wall covering demands expert application. You’re in safe hands. Liz has been a fully Lincrusta Advanced Installer for the East Midlands since 2015!
So if you’re ready for a change, why not consider Lincrusta? Timelessly stylish, convenient and long-lasting, it can be painted over and hardens with age. Great news for bathrooms and kitchens as it won’t deteriorate with exposure to steam. It’s also brilliant for masking flaws in a wall.
Designs have moved on from the Victorian age, too. Lincrusta recently extended their collection to include contemporary trends such as geometric patterns.
Here at Juniper-ash, we think Lincrusta is more than a wall covering; it gives mood, feeling and ambiance to a room. We can apply both oil-based and water-based paint to the surface, so it’s the perfect base whether you’re looking for simple colour washes or prefer a marbling, scumbling and glazing effect.
We are as happy as “pigs in clover”, put furniture back in last night, and had a glass of something nice in the room with the lamps on.
The job was done perfectly Liz and we could not fault you, we love the colour and it’s so neatly finished.
Many, many thanks.

Thank you so very much for all you have done.
Every where looks so bright and cheerful and the colour choices you suggested for the hall are lovely.

I needed my house decorating ahead of putting it up for sale at quite short notice. Juniper-Ash were recommended by a colleague and, while they weren’t the cheapest, the service was beyond anything I’ve previously experienced.
It started with great advice on colours and treatments, then the attention to detail and the quality of the job, and finally the clean-up. Not only no paint-splattered sinks but they hoovered the rooms and the hallway where dust from sanding was lingering despite the floor covering (used everywhere) and washed the windows to remove any fine spray from rollering the adjacent walls.
I can’t recommend them enough.
Liz & Team, I am so pleased with the decorating, your work and attention to detail is first class, and a bonus you were always on time! It was a pleasure to know you all,
Liz – the stairs are absolutely STUNNING!!!!!! Thanks soooo much – they honestly are even lovelier than I imagined!!!!!! You’ve done an amazing job!!!
