Wallpaper Vs. Paint

Farrow and Ball WallpaperThere’s no question that what you do with your walls will set the tone for your overall décor. Think of your walls as an open canvas, with a seemingly unlimited number of design options to change the look of any room. A natural question you may be asking yourself is, “What’s better, wallpaper or paint?” At Windo VanGo, with a new showroom in Marriottsville and serving the Baltimore area, we carry a full line of Farrow & Ball wallpaper line.

Paint is popular, but wallpaper is gaining in popularity as people are looking for new and exciting ways to decorate their homes. Here are the most compelling benefits to using wallpaper in your interior design:

Benefits of Wallpaper

Variety. There is virtually no limit to what you can do with wallpaper. The choices of styles, colors, and textures are more diverse than ever before. The interesting and unique effects that can be achieved with wallpaper – such as a leather look, custom designs, natural patterns and much more – just simply can never be painted. If you’re looking for originality and creativity, wallpaper is the solution.

Longevity. Wallpaper will last much longer than paint. Today’s wallpaper is designed to last a good 10 to 15 years, much longer that most painted walls will endure. Depending on your household, wallpaper can last five times longer than paint, making it the most economical choice in the long run.

Ease of removal. Wallpaper varieties available today are very easy to remove if you decide you want a change. New removal systems make it possible to remove the paper from the wall in long strips. Proper installation of wallpaper using a good primer will also make removal easier down the road.
