Wallpaper vs Painting, which way to go
« on: January 13, 2014, 09:37:00 PM »
I was trying to compare the advantages of painting versus wallpaper. We bought a house that has  wall paper all over it. Should i go with wallpaper again or paint the house?

I'd go with painting. You can repaint over the previous one easily. Wall paper is difficult to remove and replace.

I think this really depends on the kind of wallpaper that's up on the walls. If you happen to have paint in storage, then it's a good idea to get the place looking how YOU want it to look like. Otherwise, the solution really lies in whether you can live with the wallpaper designs yourself!

It really depends on whether you like patterns or simple solid finishes. Wallpapers provide you a chance to add texture to the walls that adds life to the surroundings whereas paint gives the place a clean look. Another factor to take note is the installation of wallpaper which could be exhaustive if you are not experienced at doing so. If that is the case, you could simply dump it up in storage and get those paint rollers working.
