Choosing the perfect wallpaper & paint
Choosing the right wallpaper and paint for your home can be a daunting task, with so many options available. It’s important to consider factors such as the style of your home, the mood you want to create, and the amount of natural light in each room. In this blog, we’ll be sharing some tips for choosing the right wallpaper and paint for your home.
When choosing wallpaper, there are several factors to consider. First, think about the interior style. Does the home have a modern, minimalist space or a cosy, traditional one? There are many different wallpaper patterns to choose from, including floral, geometric, and textured options. Consider how the pattern will complement the existing decor and whether it will create a focal point or blend in with the rest of the room.
Next, think about the mood you want to create. If you’re looking for a calming atmosphere, consider a wallpaper with a soft, muted pattern or a solid colour. If you want to make a bold statement, choose a wallpaper with a large pattern or bright colours. It’s also important to consider the amount of natural light in the room – a darker wallpaper may make a room feel smaller or gloomier, while a lighter wallpaper can make it feel more spacious and airy.
When it comes to installation, wallpaper can be a bit more challenging than paint. Consider hiring a professional installer to ensure the job is done properly and the wallpaper lasts for years to come.
Paint is a great way to update any space without breaking the bank. If you are creating a modern, minimalist space, consider a neutral colour like grey or beige. If you are creating a cosy, traditional home, warm colours like red or orange can create a welcoming atmosphere.
Consider the finish of the paint as well. A glossy finish can reflect light and make a room feel brighter, while a matte finish can create a more subdued look. It’s also important to consider the amount of natural light in the room – a darker paint colour may make a room feel smaller, while a lighter colour can make it feel more open.
Before committing to a paint colour, consider testing a few samples on the wall to see how they look in different lighting conditions throughout the day. This will help ensure you choose a colour you’re happy with.
