Wallpaper Hanging Plymouth

 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

Benefits of Wallpaper

  • Wallpaper comes in a huge number of designs, with unique and beautiful patterns that cannot be easily replicated with paint. A stunning wallpaper can impact a room and produce a memorable effect far more effectively than paint.
  • Wallpapers come in various different textures, offering far more choice than paint alone.
  • Wallpaper sticks to walls well. This makes it a great option for walls with a lower standard of finish on the surface, and it easily allows you to cover over cracks and other surface issues.
  • Wallpaper can last significantly longer than paint when hung properly. Typically it can last for up to 15 years, which is around three times longer than paint. This makes wallpaper a fantastic cost effective solution in the long run.
  • Wallpaper can be easily cleaned, so it’s a great choice if you have a house full of kids.
  • Most modern wallpaper is easy to remove and replace.

Disadvantages of Wallpaper

  • Wallpaper is more expensive than paint, and requires skill and knowledge to apply correctly. Despite its longer lifespan, this means wallpaper may not be the best option for budget projects.
  • It can be affected by sunlight and begin to fade over time, which reduces its life and can ruin its visual appeal
  • Older wallpaper can be difficult, time consuming and messy to remove. This is less of an issue with more modern wallpaper though.

Do I Need to Hire a Professional to Hang Wallpaper?

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.

How long does it take to hang wallpaper?

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.

Which is Better, Paint or Wallpaper?

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.

How much does it cost to hang wallpaper?

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.
