Few things to consider before you buy wallpaper:
Durability - Wallpaper can last up to 15 years or more. Although the upfront cost of wallpaper is higher than painting, the durability of wallpaper can save you money over time. Most wallpaper is easy to clean and easy to maintain over time. Do check the “washability” of the wallpapers you are purchasing.
Visual appealing - Wallpaper can provide a level of creativity that you can’t find with paint. Available in endless variety of designs, patterns and surface finishing.
Layout and area of walls covered – The bigger the wall space, the more expensive it will be. How do you decide which area will make the wallpaper stands out? Avoid space or room that have many doors or windows and also visual wall space that has many features. For wall that is largely unobstructed, a large-scale pattern is ideal.
The wrong choice or pattern of wallpaper can dominate or clash with interior feature in the room, do seek your designer’s advice to avoid this scenario.
