Crown Wallcoverings Wallpaper Review

Updated May 6, 2024 | Posted Sep 4, 2019 | Professional insight, Product Advice | 0 comments

Crown Wallcoverings is quite possibly the worst wallpaper I have ever had the misfortune to hang as a professional decorator!! I’ve seen mixed reviews on the Decorators Forum UK.

It has a pretty design and nice restful colours, but om my god!!! This Crown Wallcoverings stuff epitomises everything that’s wrong with Laura Ashley.

If I hadn’t had my paperwizz, extra-long Axus blade, Olfa knife and 20 years’ experience, it would have been a disaster. And all the wife could do was point out a tiny tear in a top corner and a tiny pattern mismatch below the edge of the window by 2mm 😞🙄 Husband was appreciative though.

Either way, I’m feeling proud of myself for getting through the day and doing a good job for a mere human. 😁

I would advise everyone try to avoid Crown Wallcoverings where they can. It is awful.

My Overview

Editor's Rating:


  • Nice patterns.


  • Rips and creases on insulation.
  • Easy to stretch out the pattern so it doesn’t match.
  • You can’t wipe the excess paste from the front without damaging it.
  • Avoid this paper at all costs.

What Other Decorators Think About Crown Wallcoverings

You’ve done a great job – I hung this one a few years back and, as you say, everything that was bad was bad. Good result 👍🏻

The Crown Wallcoverings Wallpapers are a bit hit and miss. Some of them go up without issue. Others seem to crease, rip and mark easily. The trick is, not to overwork them and use a good quality paste like Beeline. Better still, just avoid it the best you can. There are far better wallpapers on the market.
