Painting Or Using Wallpapers

Spread the love

When it comes to taking care of the walls of a house, most people choose to paint. That may be because they themselves can paint the house if they want to. Not everyone can paste papers to the wall.
However, this should not be the only reason for choosing either method to decorate your house. You need to pay attention to every aspect of each process. You could make the decision making easy by asking your family’s or your friends’ opinions. Nevertheless, you should always remember that someone else’s opinion may not suit you. Therefore, coming to a decision on your own is better. You can use the following facts to help you make a decision.
Price
It is said that generally, using paper is more expensive than painting. However, there is cheap wallpaper in the market that also has a high quality even though they come with low prices. If you choose to install paper on your walls, you are only going to install one layer of paper. However, when you are painting, you have to use at least two coats for the colour to appear.
Range of Products
The range of products in painting has some variety as there are different paints that you can use for different purposes such as shielding walls from weather, protecting the walls from child drawings, etc. Then, there are different paints that come with a gloss or matte finish. However, when it comes to paper there are countless designs. That is the most important part in using paper. There are so many variations that sometimes choosing is much more difficult. That may be why some shops categorize paper using their country of origin such as UK, German and Korean wallpaper in Singapore. 
Installation
Painting is something you can do by yourself. If you cannot, you have to hire someone for the task. However, most people choose to paint by themselves to save money. Usually, when it comes to installing paper on walls, a good supplier offers to install the paper for you too. If a shop does not offer such a service, you have to either hire someone to do the job or do it by yourself. If you have time to spare, you can do this without a trouble.
Imperfections on Walls
Sometimes due to different reasons walls have imperfections. At times painting can hide these imperfections. Nevertheless, it is accepted that paper is a better agent when it comes to hiding wall imperfections.
It seems both painting and installing paper has their pros and cons. Your decision should be based on your taste and ease. Some people even go for a third option where they use both in their houses.
