Why choose wallpaper?

Even though you might default to painting your home, wallpaper can be just as great of an option. The right wallpaper can add  the perfect splash of color in a unique pattern or texture, making your rooms really shine. Wallpaper also gives you options; you can either cover the entire room, or just use it as a border. However you choose to apply your wallpaper, either with the help of a wallpaper hanging and painting company or even on your own, it can sometimes be easier than painting. Wallpaper can also be as easy to change as repainting would be, which makes it perfect when you decide you want to change the walls of your room after a few years.

How to choose a wallpaper

After you’ve decided wallpaper is the right step for your home decorating project, you’ll want to examine multiple colors, styles and patterns of wallpaper to decide which one is right for you. If you’re looking for a more bold look, don’t be afraid of intricate patterns in bright colors. Classic neutral colors are always in style, too. After some extensive wallpaper shopping, pick your top five favorite papers and request samples of them to take home.

Take samples of the wallpaper and hang them up to your walls to see if they match the feel you want for the room. In fact, leave the samples up for a few days to truly get an idea of which one you like the most. Once you’ve had an idea how the wallpapers look in your room, choose the one you feel best works for your space.

How to apply

If you’ve ever tried to hang wallpaper on your own before, you know it can sometimes be a little challenging. If you don’t mind spending a little extra time getting your paper to look just right, then you can just hang the paper yourself. However, if you want the process to be sped up and to be done with precision, an interior painting company offering this service may be your best bet. They will have had the experience to know exactly how to properly apply the paper without bumps or gaping, making your wallpaper look the best it can be.
