Wall Covering Versus Paint
Sometimes the choice between paint and wall covering can be determined by what you intend to do with your home throughout the years. Wall coverings and paint both have equal highlights and benefits. Some people tend to prefer wall coverings due to the variety available when it comes to patterns, textures, and colors. Wall coverings can add in a bit of flair to a room or simply help mesh together your overall design.
When comparing the two, paint and wall coverings are similar in many ways. It often comes down to finding the right color and type, and then it is simply a matter of applying it. If you have trouble making the right color or pattern choice, a designer’s help can always make a difference. Wall coverings can be adhered to the wall with a clay substance which allows for easy removal without damage to your wall when it is time to change the look in the future.
Wall coverings are different in many ways and in several cases, may actually be the better choice. Due to improved technology, you can now buy wall coverings that are washable or even scrubbable, stain resistant, abrasion resistant, or even have the ability to resist a loss of color after a prolonged exposure to light. Removing wall coverings typically come as peelable or strippable. Peelable wallpaper typically leaves behind a layer of substrate, allowing you a liner for new wall coverings. Strippable wallpaper leaves a minimum of residue as well as no damage to the wall surface.
Wall coverings can give you the chance to enhance a room through the wide variety of patterns, colors, and even textures that they offer. Wall coverings also come in a range of shapes and sizes, and you can also cut the amount of wall covering to the size or shape that you desire in order to accent a room. Wall coverings work well in any room when they mesh well with the room’s design or purpose. Take some time to choose the right type of wall covering for your room – always check to see its attributes, as well as whether it is strippable or peelable – and see the difference it can make.CONTACT US: Innovative Room Design | Judy Goldwater | phone: 661-714-0556
