When decorating your home it’s often difficult to match items and colours together and at a reasonable price. Some of the toughest design decisions are deciding what colour to go with, what theme to go for throughout the house and sometimes it can be a difficult pairing and matching things that work well together. Below we will list the advantages and disadvantages of choosing either paint, wallpaper and stick wood, each will suit different needs and styles of homes.
Wallpaper vs paint
Wallpaper is a great choice for walls as it is very versatile when it comes to style and design, and it’s easy to put up. Wallpaper can add more colour over paint and can be more of a cost-effective, however, paint can be easier to apply and can be a great choice if you’re just looking for a plain colour. Wallpaper can be a better option if you’re looking to decorate your wall with more of a design and elegance as you can get different patterns and types. Different effects cover wallpaper such as pearl and glitter effects, alongside and raised ink textures, the list goes on. One thing wallpaper and paint cannot achieve is a 3D effect which is achieved through stick wood planks.
A great home trend for a few years has been to have a feature wall in your home. Using paint for your feature wall would be a good idea if you wanted a single colour or a block colour as it eliminates any hassle with wallpapering and a lot of homeowners end up doing it themselves. If you wanted something more design based on your feature wall, wallpaper and stick wood planks are a great option. You can use wallpaper for brighter colours and stick wood for a more sophisticated design, alongside this it gives your house more depth.
