Things You Should Consider before Installing Wallpaper in Your House


Wallpapers are a great and clever investment for your house. It is not wise to be spontaneous and impulsive when you are shopping for wallpaper. There is no point in falling in love with a pattern just to find that it is not the suitable type for your house. So here are some things you should keep in mind before getting wallpapers :

Which colour should you use?


The colour choice of the wallpaper is supposed to differ from person to person, but there are some things that you should consider. Sometimes the same colour gives a different hue depending on the layout and brightness of the room. For instance, grey wallpaper will offer a neutral and elegant feel in a spacious and bright room. But the same wallpaper will end up making a small room more tighter and airless. That is why you should choose a colour that suits your choice and goes well with the room.

What type is competent for the space?

If you want the wallpaper to be effective and last longer, you should assess the space you are willing to install it. Consider how you use the room and how often you use the room.

Wallpapers were used in the living room or the bedroom in the past, but now it’s being used in different parts of houses including kitchens or bathrooms. It is obvious that humid places like the kitchen and bathroom need different treatment than the bedroom or living room. Vinyl, non-textured wallpapers are considered the most suitable type for the kitchen as they can tolerate moisture or humidity and are easier to clean.

How much paper do you need?


This is something everyone is confused about while shopping for wallpapers. If you are hiring professional help, measuring wallpaper will not be a hard task. But if you are going to do it yourself, calculating the amount of wallpaper you are going to need is certainly not easy. There are various methods of estimating the total amount of wallpaper. You can always do it how most people do it, by measuring the walls in square feet and buying the wallpaper. Or you can measure the width of the wallpaper and calculate how many stripes you need for a wall. No matter what method you use, don’t forget that you have to match the edges of the wallpaper, so you should get a little more than you need just to be on the safe side.

How do patterns affect the vibe of the room?

Assuming wallpaper patterns as just designs is a common mistake. If you are a beginner and don’t have experience with wallpapers, you will pick a pattern that goes well with your existing furniture, colour scheme or the aesthetic of your room. But did you know that you should also consider the shape of your room when picking out a pattern? While light and simple patterns make the room look bigger and airy, a busy and heavy pattern will make the room seem tighter and small.
