Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why should I use wallpaper instead of just painting the walls? What are the benefits of using them?
There are many reasons to use wallpaper over paint and we’ll gladly share them with you. First of all, wallpapers are trendy, classy and fashionable. With so many options available at your fingertips, you will easily be able to pick a wallpaper that will help you create a new look or make a bold statement in every room of your house. Neutral colors? Designs? Unique patterns? Texture? Adding dimension and depth? Yes, we’ve got it all!
Moreover, wallpapers are pocket friendly. The cost of wallpapers and installation can be kept within a budget. And whenever you feel like you need a change, all you have to do is take off the wallpaper and voila! You’re ready for the next designer adventure.
One more important benefit to keep in mind is that wallpapers help cover up any defects of your walls. Dark spots, bad patches, backlogs? Wallpapers will cover them up. Also, wallpaper is a more durable option that will last you longer than any paint.
2. How expensive is wallpaper installation?
As we’ve mentioned before, wallpaper installation can be budget friendly. The cost of your project will depend on several factors: the rolls and materials you pick, the size and location of your room, the state of your walls. The national average cost of installing wallpaper ranges from $800 to $1,200. Depending on how many walls you’re planning on putting the wallpaper on, that cost can go up or down.
3. What are some wallpaper installation tips?
Before applying wallpaper, it’s advisable to use a primer that will make the entire process much easier and more optimal (it will also make it easier to remove the wallpaper down the line). In addition, wallpapers can be applied to drywall (with proper preparation that includes covering it with primer and sealer). New wallpapers can even be installed over old ones, although that is not recommended (the adhesive will not stick as well). Before putting the new wallpaper on, it’s best to remove the old wallpaper by soaking it in warm water or a hot vinegar solution. Got a textured wall? Don’t worry! If you use skim–coating and smooth out the wall, your wallpaper will still stick beautifully.
