1. Why should I use wallpaper instead of just painting the walls? What are the benefits of using them?
Wallpaper has several advantages over paint. Somewhere along the way, wallpaper got a reputation for being stuffy and antiquated. This is simply not the case. Wallpaper has kept up with modern design trends and is both classy and fashionable. Whether you’re looking for a neutral understated color or something bold and brash, wallpaper can deliver. It can also do so by adding depth and texture, something that is harder for paint to accomplish alone. Different designs in different rooms can bring a unique element to your home.
Surprising to some, wallpaper won’t hit you hard in the wallet either. Cost and installation are quite reasonable, especially when you start pricing out the cost of professional interior painting.
Not only that, but when it’s time for a change, just remove the old wallpaper and start fresh with a new, completely different design, at a fraction of the cost of new paint.
Another underrated advantage: Wallpaper can disguise defects in your walls. If you’re dealing with dark spots, bad patch up jobs, scuffs or chips, wallpaper can cover them up. It’s also much more durable than paint.
2. How expensive is wallpaper installation?
Redesigning your walls doesn’t have to break the bank. The cost of wallpaper installation will vary. Not every roll in our warehouse is the same price obviously. So quality, design, and the size of the project will all be factors, as will the state of your walls and how much prep work is required. The national average cost is currently about $800-$1200. Again, where your cost will come in depends on the scope of the project.
3. What are some wallpaper installation tips?To get the best application of your wallpaper, it’s fairly standard to use a primer on the wall first, much like you would prime a wall before painting. For wallpapering, this makes it easier to remove the wallpaper at a later date. Wallpaper can be applied to drywall, provided again that it’s been primed and sealed first. Some people will tell you that you can even apply new wallpaper to old wallpaper. We advise against that, as the adhesive will not stick as well. If the walls were primed properly prior to the application of the old wallpaper, that should come off quite easily with a warm water/vinegar solution. Let’s say your walls are textured. We have you covered. We can skim-coat the and smooth out the wall, and bang–we’re ready to apply your new wallpaper. Of course, our last tip is to call Gacek Home Decor for all your wallpaper and home design needs!
