Why Choose Wallpaper?

Wallpaper, also referred to today as wallcoverings, is a cost-efficient way to change your interior. It is a timeless decorating product. Using wallpaper is a way to reinvent the space entirely without tearing up the room. Between the different types of patterns and textures today you have thousands of options.

There are several great reasons why wallpaper can be a solution to making your walls unique and beautiful.

1. Longevity

Wallpaper is very durable and can endure marks and moisture. This increased resilience means that you won’t find yourself having to redo the whole room as often, saving you money in materials and labor over time.

2. Easy to Clean

When wallpaper gets a dirty spot, you can just wipe it off.  Wallpapers defined as “scrubbable” may be cleaned with soap, warm water, and a gentle sponge.  While you can wipe down some paints, it may remove the finish or leave a shiny spot.

3.  Style Options

With its ability to capture any style or color scheme, wallpaper helps you express your personality and style.  From contemporary to romantic or eclectic, wallpaper has endless choices.

Wallpaper comes in a variety of styles that give you many options when decorating a room.  You can also get much more intricate designs on wallpaper than paint. Wallpaper can range from very intricate to more abstract designs.

Whatever look you choose for your home, there is a wallpaper texture or design that will complement it perfectly. You can even mix wallpaper with paint colors to create a truly unique living environment. With wallpaper, you get a more unique, customized, and individual look that you are not likely to get with just paint.

4. Economical

Many of today's wallpaper varieties have a long lifespan. This means they’re less likely to scratch, tear or stain. Wallpaper is an economical way to add missing architectural elements to your room without hiring a general contractor. 

5. Creates Detail

Wallcoverings will add depth and, depending on the design, can add movement and warmth to a room. Textured wallpaper can add a feeling of luxury to a more traditional living space. There are plenty of geometric prints that capture a contemporary and high-energy vibe. Geometric wallpapers add a playfulness to your room, even if the pattern or color is more subtle.

6. Works in Unconventional Spaces

Wallpaper can be a great way to make a tiny, odd-shaped, or unconventional room into a stunning space. Small closets, a powder room, or a nook can be transformed into something spectacular with the use of wallpaper. It makes a big impact in unusual spaces. Adding wallpaper to create a more interesting area in your home is an inexpensive way to add some unique decor.

7. Changeable 

Contemporary wall coverings have changed a lot. You don’t need to worry about an unwanted wallpaper design that you, or the future owners of your home, will be stuck with if either of you should choose to redesign the space. Today’s wallpapers are easier to remove than those made in past decades.

Hiring a wallpaper installer can go a long way to ensuring your final selection lasts a long time and, at the same time, will be easy to remove, when needed. A professional installer will ensure that walls are properly prepped and primed and that your wallpaper is applied correctly.
