Is Wallpaper a good choice for my home?

In todays “disposable” society the answer for wall and ceiling treatments has become paint. After a trend of a color pallet changes from one season to another it can often be financially possible to repaint and change the feel and look of a room. This type of decorating has several pit falls. As we continue to change so often we begin to see the additional cost in the financial, effort, time and waste. We are realizing that we would rather opt for a solution that we can do once, do to the best that our budget allows and still affords us extra time to spend doing things we love instead of repainting AGAIN. Wallpaper is the perfect answer! The green Movement has shown us that the trash created by doing repeated tasks to achieve the same solution, such as repainting is insane and is killing our planet. Even with the initial work involved in creating, producing, installing and maintaining wallpaper in the long run it is a far more superior product to paint. It is often made from natural products, it adds a timeless beauty that cant be achieved by other products, it far outperforms in durability and by selecting a product that is designed to last a lifetime, allows for many more “bucket-list” items to be done in place of painting again! As an Interior Designer I prefer to lead my clients to a classic style wallpaper that will allow for the trends to come and go while being a beautiful backdrop to their lives. If wallpapering is cost prohibitive for your budget, consider phasing it in one room at a time. Wallpapering one room at a time will quickly turn into a beautifully finished home. Remember that the finer and better a wallcovering the more the seams will show, this is not a defect or something to try to hide but rather a sign that you have selected a quality product and made a wise choice in your finishing of your home!
