Wallpaper is back in the good graces of designers and homeowners — but this time, they’re determined to right the decorating wrongs of the past. Some designers still struggle with memories of wallpapered childhoods in the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s, when dizzying prints and pastel florals ran rampant through American homes. As renovators, they’ve come face to face with the lingering reminders of previous eras.
Wallpaper can last up to 15 years and beyond, which makes it cost-effective in the long run. It is generally accepted that properly hung wallpaper will last 3 times as long as paint. Wallpaper adheres easily and smoothly to walls, hiding many surface imperfections. It can also add warmth, depth and style to a room that monotone paint simply cannot achieve. Chic designs, intriguing textures and beautiful prints have an impactful effect on the décor of a room. Wallpaper can be used to create a designer look in any space, and can also be applied to just one wall as a feature wall.
Paint can only provide a color in a very limited spectrum of finishes from matte to glossy. Wallpaper, on the other hand, comes in a dazzling array of designs with an incredible selection of beautiful effects like pearl and glitter, raised inks, suede, gels, beads, foils, embossed silk textures, and natural grasscloth…just to name a few. Paint also chips and cracks over time, so you will need to reapply and touch up your paint job more often. It is also quite messy to apply paint to walls, and you can easily stain your floors, ceilings, furniture or appliances. Depending on the type of paint you decide to use, heavier oil-based paint dries slower than you anticipate and usually requires a professional to apply - so, you probably can't apply it yourself. Oil-based paints also tend to run when being applied and are less resistant to heat. While paint does last 5 to 10 years, there is a bigger chance you will repaint more frequently.
