Reasons to Choose Wallpaper Over Paint

Wallpapers are an easy, creative solution to revamp your space.

Wallpaper has made a dramatic comeback over the past several years. Available in a variety of bright colors, funky designs, and bold patterns, wallpapers provide a quick and fun way to create a statement wall or make a room pop. Wallpapers today are easy to install and eco-friendly, too. 

Paint is a tried-and-true solution that's rather simple to use. However, wallpaper is the clear winner when it comes to variety, versatility, and durability. Still not convinced? Here are four reasons to choose wallpaper over paint.

Durable, long-lasting, and easy to maintain 

Paint is great, but it can easily chip, scuff, or scratch if you bump into it. It might also be quite tricky to clean at times. On the other hand, wallpaper is a very durable material that requires little upkeep. It's super easy to clean, too! All you’ll need is a sponge, some water, and soap, and you’re good as new. If you want to keep your walls looking fresh, and particularly if you have little ones running around the home, wallpaper is the preferable alternative.

Installation can be a breeze 

Applying paint can be a messy, lengthy process, including scraping off the old paint, sanding the wall, and drying the new paint. With today's wallpapers, installation is easy, simple, and time-saving. You can even DIY if you wanna get crafty!

You can change it anytime 

Wallpaper offers a low-commitment way to get creative with your walls. Simply remove the previous wallpaper and attach the new design if you find your selected print doesn't fit the style of your home or if you decide to redecorate.

An instant statement piece 

The simple addition of a bold patterned wallpaper can easily turn up the “wow” factor of any room. You want your wallpaper to be the focal point, so you only need to add a few key pieces here and there, and you’re done! Bonus if flatlays are your thing or your family enjoys taking portraitsyour wallpaper doubles as an interesting backdrop. 

Make a statement with a colorful accent wall!
