Wallpaper, which was once a very popular home decorating choice, is now often associated with a modern homeowner’s worst decorating nightmares. When one thinks of wallpaper, often images of gaudy outdated floral designs and expensive, time consuming, messy removal operations come to mind. However, the modern homeowner need not shy away from wallpaper. New design ideas, such as incorporating texture, geometric patterns, and even eco-friendly paper-free materials help to once again make wallpapers a viable option in modern trendy home decorating.
Your home’s appearance says a lot about your personality, style, and values. When your guests visit, they immediately notice the color choices in your home, the arrangement and style of your furniture, and the type of decor you have selected for your home’s interior. Every decision you make regarding your home’s design tells your guests a little something about yourself. If you’re a free spirit who loves to laugh and have adventures, your interior decor will show that. If you’re relaxed and have a laid-back personality, your home’s decor will demonstrate this. Even if you don’t realize it, your guests will notice your home’s decorations and will feel a little closer to you as a person. This makes it incredibly important to choose your furniture, flooring, wall decor and even wallpaper with extreme care and precision.
When moving into a new home, or redecorating your present place, the question always comes up…should you paint or hang wallpaper? Many homeowners mistakenly believe that painting is easier, less messy, cheaper, and more protective to your walls and the environment. Let’s compare paint to wallpaper…wall coverings that complete your room in a way that paint simply cannot.
At the onset, it is true that paint is going to be a smaller initial investment than wallpaper; that is, if you have smooth, unblemished walls that require no patching, sanding, and sealing. Inexpensive paint usually requires two or more coats, as well as primers if the color you are changing to is lighter than the original paint, or if you are changing from an oil base or glossy paint to a latex or matte finish. If there is any water damage to the wall it also needs a protective sealer to prevent the stain from showing through the paint.
Wallpaper, thankfully, isn’t what it used to be. The days of the grandmotherly blue roses are gone. Many wallpaper designs are true works of art, or at least based on works of art. One of the leading inspirations for modern wallpaper is the work of Italy’s Piero Fornasetti, who was also a great artisan, furniture and interior designer and sculptor.
Intricately detailed wall paper has been used for centuries to finish living space walls. Although many of these were hand painted, today there’s an advantage in production methods that produce many patterns without the wait or cost. Durability and maintenance of today’s wall papers make it a good choice for homes, offices, studios, and anywhere else one may want more than just a painted surface.
