In our current economic situation, it is clear that more homeowners are choosing to make improvements to their homes, rather than taking losses on the current housing market.
Many of these people choose to add wallpaper to their home remodeling list not only for the many design and color choices available but for the value added to their home.
You buy and install wallpapers once every fifteen to twenty-five years. But paint must be reused several times during this same time period, so you will have to spend more on the material and labor costs.
Also, it is not possible to get the same effect as paint as you get with many of the new styles of wallpapers that are available today. For example, wallpaper can give you a rich, textured leather look on your wall by using faux leather wallpaper products.
To complete repairs to the faux paint project, it is almost impossible to match colors and designs correctly. You have to buy more material and repaint the entire wall. Not only expensive in materials, but also in time.
These are just a few of the many reasons why wallpaper is better than painting when trying to increase the value of your home.
