Painting Your Home GreenFebruary 11, 2014
Perhaps the word “wallpaper” calls to mind that white and pink striped floral pattern in your bedroom as a child, or the pattern of autumn leaves in your grandma’s house. If this sounds familiar to you, I understand wanting to take it down. In fact here at Matthew’s Painting, we provide a wallpaper removal service so that you don’t have to go through the trouble. However if you are looking to install wallpaper, there are multiple decorating benefits.
Various Patterns and Styles
With wallpaper there is an abundant amount of patterns and styles to choose from. You can add sophistication to your home with patterns that include metallic accents. Or you can add some drama with a bold graphic print and a pop of color. With paint you’re limited to only color. With wallpaper you can give a room texture and an air of mystery. There are so many wallpaper options to choose from, you’ll have no trouble creating the room you’ve been dreaming of.
Multiple Installation Options
Another great thing about wallpaper is that you don’t have to put it on every single wall. For instance, you can draw attention to a focal wall with wallpaper. Or you can highlight your painted walls with wallpaper borders. Some wallpaper styles can even be painted over, so you can have both texture and color in the room. Before installing, play around with different ideas to find the look you desire.
Many people might be under the impression that paint on the wall is easier to maintain. However wallpaper is easy to maintain too. These days most wallpaper styles are coated so that cleaning is a breeze. In most cases, all you need is a common household cleaner. However paint on the wall can fade over time with constant scrubbing.
Another wallpaper perk is its ability to cover blemishes on your wall. Paint highlights an imperfection, while wallpaper covers it up. Not to mention, if your walls tend to get dirty, the right pattern can mask the dirt.
Out of the various wallpaper material available, vinyl is the easiest to maintain. It’s great for both in the home (think kitchens and bathrooms) and commercial areas like department stores. It is also the easiest to remove, in case you ever change your mind. At Matthews Painting we specialize in commercial vinyl wallpaper installation. So if the walls of your business need updating, we’ve got you covered. Just contact us or call 574-834-3575.
