July 14, 2021

So, you have bought a new home and have to get it painted. Or you are planning renovations to your existing home. There are multiple decisions to be taken and choices to be made.

One of the key factors that need a lot of planning and attention is your walls. Should you paint it? Should you use traditional wallpapers? Or is peel and stick removable wallpaper a better option? With so many choices available, making the right informed decision can be difficult and confusing!!

But don’t worry, we are here to help you out with the question..To Paint or Wallpaper A New Home???

So let us get into the ins and outs of paints and wallpapers.

To Paint A New Home?

For most of us, painting seems to be the only feasible option when it comes to decorating the walls of a new home. But what does painting entail?

You may feel that painting works out cheaper when compared to wallpapers, but it isn’t always so. For starters, painting is a total messy affair. There is a lot of cleanup to be done once the job is done.

Painting is quite difficult when upgrades must be done in a home that is already being lived in.

In addition, when you are planning different colors in different rooms and accent walls, leftover paints are a common problem which means you are wasting material and money if you can't utilize the paints completely.

For example, let’s say, you want a pink ombre pattern on your wall in your room. Achieving this look with paints may not be easy or cost effective. Instead, you can opt for a pink ombre wallpaper which makes achieving the pattern simple and easy.

In addition, it may not be possible for everyone to take up the painting job on their own, either due to time constraints or an inability to manage. Often, you must take the help of interior decorators or contractors to complete the job for you. This will increase the overall costs, adding to your financial burden.

The limitations in terms of textures and patterns are also there when it comes to paints.

So, overall, though paints may seem an ideal choice, there are not always, especially when you compare paints with the much easier to use wallpapers

To wallpaper a new home?

Yes definitely!! Wallpapers, especially peel and stick removable wallpaper are an ideal choice for new home owners and renovators as well. Let us see the advantages.

These wallpapers are easy to install, easy to remove, and do not leave any residue behind when removing them.

They are affordable at the end of the day because installing them is a total DIY affair and you needn’t take the help of contractors or hire external help to get the job done. Especially, with peel and stick removable wallpaper, you can buy pre-cut sheets of the wallpaper which ensures no wastage. Just make proper measurements and place the order.

You have multiple options in terms of patterns, textures, designs, colors, and hues. We are particularly in love with the pink ombre wallpaper which we highly recommend as an accent wall.

To sum up, the simple answer to the question “To paint or wallpaper a new home?” is wallpaper. Opt for peel and stick removable wallpaper and make your home painting an enjoyable and comfortable experience.
