Topic: Decorative paint vs Wall paper

Hi,

Wehave just purchase a flat and we are thinking of decorating one wall in each room and this is a 2 bhk flat..what would be the best option for decorating walls...decorative paint or wall paper in terms of durability and cost as well. I have seen some very good wall paper designs but some of our friends are suggesting paint ...reason  is durability.. please suggest and what would be the approximate cost for both the options. Flat size is 1299 sq ft.

Regards
chanchal

Dear Chanchal

    Wall paper is that it is harder to do but once it is done it lasts a long time. You can get 10 to 15 years from wallpaper and adds value to your home.

But in my view there are some disadvantages of wallpaper;-

1.  Humidity can cause it to become unglued.
2. It is easily spoiled and damaged in case small children of yours or of yours guest.
3. Older paper nearly impossible to match color or pattern if damaged.
4.  Costly to replacement.

2.      Paint is the most popular and practical wall treatment as it is quick, easy, and generally the least expensive way to give a room an instant "makeover".

Hi,

See there are lot of options for decorating the wall (not only with paint).
But e.g. in master bed you can go for some textured paint with some spot lights on wall decorated with beautiful paintings.Color shade of which  you can change after few years easily because with one theme for long time you will get bored of it as every one like change after few years.For kids bed ( I dont know the age if you have)you can go for some cartoon or shadow paintings on walls.Hope this is useful for you.


Regards,

Hi Chanchal, 
These are some of the  options available to you. 

1) Go with Wall paper:  You may want to go with Wall papers as they have the following benefits. 

1.1) Wall papers have almost unlimited designs and the quality of work in the actual completed wall is more or less same as the wall paper sample that you would see. 

1.2) Pasting the wallpaper do not require experienced labor.  If you go with designs using paint then the experience of labor can considerably affect the output of the job and finding labor may not be the easiest thing 

1.3) Texture paints have limited designs. Ofcourse a very experienced painter can product unlimited finishes but then that person is hard to find and he/she would not be able to show you before hand what the final output would look like. 

2) Go with Textured Paint: 
2.1) Some cities have limited wall paper vendors so you can go with textured paint if you don't like the wall paper design. 

2.2) Paint is more durable than wall paper but if the seepage or moisture is there on the walls then it would affect both wall paper and textured paint. 

2.3) Paint work can be easily repaired whereas wall paper match would be harder to find as the wall papers go out of stock with vendors very quickly. 

3) Go with regular paint with stickers
This combines the benefits of paint and wall papers as you can get all walls painted through your painter and then put stickers to create themes in those rooms. 

Enjoy
