Wallpaper can be an efficient way to alter a room’s decor by adding detail, texture, depth, pattern, etc. to the walls.
It can also help to set a theme for a room by adding a significant amount of character to them. So why should you work with wallpaper for your next project? We’re going to cover just a few reasons.
Reasons To Work With Wallpaper
To begin with, it’s important to note that wallpaper adds a classy look to whatever room it’s being used in. Compared to paint, wallpaper is virtually unmatched when it comes to aesthetic value.
Paint tends to exacerbate any flaws in the wall, while wallpaper will remove most flaws or irregularities by covering them. We could go on about aesthetics for the rest of this article, to be honest, but there are other benefits worth considering as well.
At this point, wallpaper is nearly effortless to apply and remove. It used to be that wallpaper was very time-consuming to replace, but with time, newer types of wallpaper have made it easy enough to peel off in strips.
To prevent damage from showing up readily, apply a wallpaper with a design. If you need to clean the walls for whatever reason, most modern wallpapers are even coated to allow you to do so.
Unlike paint (which needs to be re-applied every few years or so to keep the best results), wallpaper lasts a long time. Most modern wallpapers are far more durable than their older counterparts, and if they’re not subject to regular wear and tear, could last as long as 10 to 15 years.
With all of the above in mind, wallpaper still may seem like a more expensive option – but consider this: If you invest in wallpaper now, and it lasts you for 10 years, that’s 10 years without having to invest in more wallpaper or paint.
With that in mind, while wallpaper may seem the more expensive option, it pays for itself in the long run.
