Live in an old cottage circa 1700's with loft bedrooms but poor insulation in them, does anyone have any experience of using insulated wallpaper and is it effective? Other option is rip out plasterboard and insulate costing £££££

The thicker the insulation is, the better, so I would say "insulated wall paper" would not be my first choice.

You are wasting your time, it's simply not thick enough to have any noticeable effect.

Are we talking the 2mm thick polystyrene type of stuff? I used it many years ago on my first house . While it felt a bit warmer or rather less cold to the touch I'm not convinced it really help much in keeping the place insulated ,as said it's probably far too thin to have much efffect. The other thing was that it did make the surface more prone to damage , it would dent easily and I think there are concerns about fire safety although it is treated with retardant.
To be honest you'd be better spending the money on a set of thermals.
