Paperhangers - Employment & Outlook

The table below provides information about the number of workers in this occupation in various regions. It also provides information about the expected growth rate and future job openings.

Employment

About 39% of wallpaper hangers are self-employed.

Major employers:

  • Painting and wallpaper hanging companies
  • Billboard companies

Outlook

Demand for this occupation is declining. New construction is seasonal, so wallpaper hangers may experience periods without work. However, those who are employed by a company that also does renovations should spend less time without work. Some homeowners are also beginning to apply temporary wallpaper that can be installed without a professional wallpaper hanger.

Some job openings will be created as people leave this occupation. There are few skills required to become a wallpaper hanger. Many people enter this occupation, gain skills, and move on to other types of work.
