When it comes to home decor, not only the color, but also the textures of your walls can have a big impact on the entire space. There are so many choices that it can be overwhelming, but the first thing you need to decide to begin your selection is whether to use wallpaper or paint. Consider the following differences that each option offers:
Paint is the most common option, and generally the easiest. Nearly anyone can paint, and it can be quite inexpensive. All of these factors lead many clients to prefer paint. On the other hand, if you’re working with dark colors, it can be a challenge to change later, especially if you want to switch to a lighter color. Additionally, paint can be easily scratched, and matching the shade perfectly can be challenging when making repairs.
Wallpaper can last decades, which is great for mature clients who are sure of what they want. Wallpaper also gives interior decorators a huge selection of patterns to work with. But wallpaper needs to be applied professionally or it can look terrible. And wallpaper is also very challenging to remove, requiring chemicals to remove.
