Paint or wallpaper? Wanna know what to choose?

Very often when we renovate room we ask ourselves similar old question – is it better to paint the walls or wallpaper them? I read many articles on this issue. I talked with colleagues that love wallpaper. But I also spoke to people that are without a doubt big fans of paint. My conclusion may be - there is no 1 right answer. Both solutions are appropriate for a particular flats. To pick the option that works best for you and your apartment, you should consider various issues.

I am going to introduce them briefly below. First of all, you should check (if you have not earlier done so) what is the state of your wall. If this wall is not smooth or cracked, the paint does not manage to camouflage such shortcomings. Thus, the paint on the wall would look just badly. Using thick wallpaper will be much better and more effective choice in this case. Second, you should keep in mind the possible changes in the design. Changing the color of paint will be more painless to implement. If you use recent paint, you don’t even need to clean the old color – it is enough to paint wall with another color. Consequently, if you want to change color of the walls frequently, painting seems to be more beneficial for you. You should also answer yourself, what kind of pattern you would like to have on your wall. If you prefer simple colors or not complicated patterns, then you can use either paint or wallpaper - If you prefer to have on the wall a pic with a large, complicated pattern, the wallpaper would be more appropriate.

Another essential factor is price of paint and wallpaper. Nevertheless, in this case it is almost impossible to generalize, since prices vary and strongly depend on the particular type of wallpaper or paint. The simplest solution for checking that is to compare different products from a price range that you are interested in. In summary, the decision between paint and wallpaper widely depends on the state of your walls, your preferences, the type of space as well as on the sum of money you plan to spend on this.
