Paint or wallpaper? Wanna know which one choose?

Very often when we renovate flat we keep on asking similar old question – should I paint these walls or wallpaper them? I had a look at many articles on that issue. I spoke to friends that love wallpaper. But I also talked with colleagues that are genuinely big fans of paint. The conclusion may be - there is no 1 right answer. These 2 solutions are appropriate for a particular walls. To select the option that works best for you and your room, you would better consider a few factors.

I am going to introduce them briefly in this article. To start with, you should check (if you have not already done so) what is the state of the wall. If the wall is not smooth or cracked, the paint will not manage to hide those shortcomings. Consequently, the paint on the wall would look just ugly. Choosing thick wallpaper will be much simpler and more effective answer in this case. Secondly, you should consider the possible revision of the design. Changing the color of paint will be easier to implement. If you use better paint, you don’t even need to clean the previous color – it is enough to paint wall with the new color. In consequence, if you plan to change color of the walls often, painting is be more convenient for you. You should also ask the question, what type of pattern you want to see on the wall. If you are interested in simple colors or simple patterns, then you could use either paint or wallpaper - If you would like to have on the wall a pic with a large, complex pattern, the wallpaper would be more useful.

If your son is a football fan, he would obviously like to receive stadium wallpaper. However, the official office would presumably look better with simple patterns. Another necessary issue is price of paint and wallpaper. However, in that case it is difficult to generalize, since prices differ and significantly depend on the particular type of wallpaper or paint. The simplest way to check that is to compare different products from a price range that you can afford. To sum up, the choice between paint and wallpaper widely depends on the quality of your walls, your taste, the type of room but also on the financial resources you want to spend on this.
