Paint or wallpaper? Want to know what to is better to your place?

Very often when we renovate room we ask ourselves similar old question – is it easier to paint those walls or wallpaper them? I had a look at many articles on this subject. I talked with people that love wallpaper. But I also talked with people who are without a doubt huge fans of paint. The conclusion is - there is no one good answer. These two solutions are appropriate for a certain group of people. To pick the option that works best for you and your room, you would better consider different factors.

I will try to introduce them briefly in that article. First of all, you should check (if you have not earlier done it) what is the state of the wall. If that wall is uneven or cracked, the paint does not manage to hide those shortcomings. Consequently, the paint on the wall would look just badly. Using thick wallpaper would be much simpler and more effective answer in this case. Secondly, you should keep in mind the future changes in the design. Changing the color of paint will be easier to do. If you use recent paint, you don’t even need to clean the old color – it would be enough to paint wall with another color. Consequently, if you are going to modify color of the walls frequently, painting is be more beneficial for you. You should also ask the question, what type of pattern you would like to have on your wall. If you prefer simple colors or simple patterns, then you can use either paint or wallpaper - If you would like to have on the wall a picture with a large, complicated pattern, the wallpaper would be more useful.

If your son is a football fan, he would unquestionably like to have stadium wallpaper. Nevertheless, the official office will probably look better with simple colour. Other important factor is cost of paint and wallpaper. However, in that case it is hard to generalize, since prices vary and strongly depend on the particular kind of wallpaper or paint. The best way for checking this is to compare some products from a price range that you are interested in. In summary, the choice between paint and wallpaper hugely depends on the state of your walls, your taste, the type of space but also on the financial resources you want to spend on this.
