When it comes to home decorating, the first choice you have to make is what you are going to do with the bare walls you have. If you have come to a new house, you can either choose to paint the walls or cover the walls using wallpaper. However, you have to make this decision only if you do not like the current colour or state of the walls in the new house you moved into. Nevertheless, if you have built the house then, you definitely have to make the decision as the walls will be bare without any kind of paint.
One can suggest going for cheap wallpaper is a better choice. One can suggest going for painting is a better choice. However, without knowing about both options, you cannot make a correct decision.
Painting is an option many people follow. If you choose painting, first of all, you have to decide what colours you want on walls. Some people choose to colour the whole house in the same colour. Some people choose to colour different rooms in different colours. You can choose either option depending on your taste. Once you made this decision, you have to decide the amount of paint you need. Since you have to at least apply two coats of paint on each wall, the paint amount can be large.
If you are someone who is not very happy with painting, you can choose to paste paper on walls instead of painting.
In this option, you use a specially designed paper instead of paint. This paper is pasted to the wall in vertical stripes covering every inch of the wall. In modern times, this option has gone through a number of changes as technology has developed so much that quite realistic patterns can be used in houses such as 3D brick wallpaper in Singapore. If you use such a paper on the wall where your fire place is situated it would look really nice. Though the number of options available in earlier times was limited now you have the luxury of being able to use designs created in different countries as well.
In this option too first of all you have to make a selection. This selection is choosing the pattern. Most people choose different patterns to different rooms. Then, you have to calculate the amount of paper that you are going to need.
When decorating your house, you can go for either option based on the look you want to have. In the end, it is really your choice.
