1. Why should I use wallpaper instead of just painting the walls? What are the benefits of using them?
Wallpaper has many benefits over paint. To start, wallpapers are trendy, classy, and fashionable. While designing patterns through painting would not only be time consuming, but also require a certain level of artistic expertise, you can have a design from mild to wild in a fraction of the time, often at a fraction of the cost. Our palate has colors from neutral to bold. We offer wallpapers with amazing, eye-catching designs and patterns. Not only that, but choices regarding texture, depth, and dimension are right at your fingertips. An added benefit is that if you’re not quite digging the look after a while, it’s easy to remove the wallpaper and start fresh with a new look.
Need more bonuses of wallpaper? Wallpapers also help cover up many defects on your walls. Dark spots, bad patches, backlogs? Wallpapers are much better at masking these than paint is. Lastly, wallpaper is a more durable option that will last you longer than paint, and also tends to be easier to clean.
2. How expensive is wallpaper installation?
Of course, there’s no one set answer we can give you. Price will always be affected by the choice of the specific wallpaper, as well as the number and sizes of the rooms involved in your project. The state or condition of your walls will also be a factor. What we can tell you is what we’ve already mentioned, wallpaper installation can be budget friendly. The national average cost of installing wallpaper ranges from $800 to $1,200. Start getting estimates for interior painting and you’ll see what a deal wallpaper can be.
3. What are some wallpaper installation tips?
Just like painting, priming your walls before applying wallpaper makes the entire process much easier and smoother (literally). This also helps should you want to remove or change the wallpaper in the future. With proper preparation, priming and sealing, wallpapers can be applied to drywall. Depending on the condition of the wall, new wallpapers can be applied over old ones, although we typically don’t recommend that, as the adhesive doesn’t work as well. It's a better course of action to remove the old wallpaper by soaking it in warm water or a hot vinegar solution. Here’s a curveball. What if you have a textured wall? No problem! Some skim–coating will smooth out that wall and your wallpaper will still stick beautifully.
