So you bought a home and now it’s time to make some interior design decisions. Well the first thing you’ll want to do is choose a treatment for your walls; it’s much easier to get the interior walls done before you move the furniture in. If you weren’t already aware, wallpaper has made a major comeback, so now you have some tough choices to make.

It’s no longer as simple as deciding what color to paint the walls. First, you must decide whether to paint or to wallpaper; once that tough decision is made, you have to decide on colors and/or patterns. It can all seem very overwhelming. But you don’t have to do it alone— at Wade Bros. Painting you’ll find the best residential painting contractors Virginia has to offer.

Let us help guide you in the decision making process and then you can just sit back, relax and let us do all the hard work. Let’s start by taking a look at some things to consider when it comes to paint vs. wallpaper…

Pros and cons of painting

The pros of painting include less preparation time and less fuss. If you decide to change your wall colors in the future, it’s much easier to simply paint over the old paint. Another plus side of painting is paint’s ability to hide imperfections on your wall surfaces. Finally, when you chose paint you have more combination options.

As with anything else, there are also some cons to consider. First of all, paint takes much longer to dry than wallpaper so that could be a bit inconvenient if you’re already living in your home. Then there is the fact that paint is easier to damage. When choosing paint you must also be very careful to make sure you are choosing one with no hazardous materials.

Pros and cons of wallpaper

Wallpaper is much more durable than paint; this is an extra plus if you have kids in the house. There are even scrubbable varieties of wallpaper for those high traffic areas of your home. You can get much more creative with wallpaper as it comes in a multitude of colors and designs that you can’t create with paint.

The major disadvantage to wallpaper is its sensitivity to moisture. Because wallpaper is applied with an adhesive, it’s probably best not to use it in high moisture areas such as bathrooms and some kitchens. The second big disadvantage to wallpaper is the difficulty in removing it. Wallpaper is much less convenient to change if you decide you want a new look in the future.
