Wallpaper is a unique alternative to paint for your walls. Wallpaper comes in a stunning variety of different colours, styles and patterns, so it is a great way to add character and colour to a room in ways that paint cannot. If you are looking to create bold, dramatic designs for your home, then wallpaper could be your best choice. If you don’t want to go all in on wallpaper, both paint and wallpaper can be used to create a well rounded space. You can even choose to use paintable wallpaper, which gives you the best of both worlds
While it is possible to hang your own wallpaper, we highly recommend seeking professional help to ensure the job is done correctly. If you’ve picked out a beautiful high-quality wallpaper, the only way to make sure you get a great finish is to use a skilled professional, like The Plymouth Decorators! Wallpaper can be expensive and hanging it is a technical task requiring skill and knowledge, so its easy to make costly mistakes when you do it yourself.
It only takes us a few hours to install wallpaper in an average room. However, we are skilled professionals, so that time will increase dramatically if you are handling your own wallpaper hanging.
This depends entirely on your tastes and desired outcomes. Both have their pros and cons (wallpaper pros and cons listed above), so ultimately it comes down to you and your personal preference. If you are unsure of which to choose (remember you can always combine both by having a wallpaper feature wall), we are happy to offer our impartial advise to help you make the best decision.
The cost of wallpaper hanging depends on a variety of factors such as the size of the room, the materials used and the preparation work required (do we also need to strip and remove old wallpaper?). However as a rough estimate, for an average, medium-sized room, wallpaper hanging will typically cost around £200 in labour, plus whatever the cost is for your chosen wallpaper. This price assumes the wall does not require any work beforehand, and prices would increase accordingly if there is. Remember, this figure is just to serve as a rough guide.
