Our team of painting experts will help you decide whether opting for house painting or wallpaper is your best option. Here at AMMS Armidale, we have assisted countless clients with their painting needs and now we want to share our wisdom with you.

From the type of paint you should use, to how much time this project will take, we’ve got all the details. When it comes to house painting vs. wallpaper, several different factors go into deciding which is the right one for your home.

The benefits of painting your property

Paint is one of the most popular wall treatments and for very good reason. House painting is an easy and quick way to give any room a refresh and the colour choices are endless. There are many different types of paint available for walls, as well as different finishes such as flat, eggshell and satin. Painting your property can also help with the sale price of your home if you’re looking to sell up in the future. 

Paint is also very cost-effective and quite easy to do yourself. However, if you want a quality finish, it’s always best to opt for a professional painting team. A professional painter will ensure you get the pristine finish you’ve been envisioning, and it will also save you a lot of time, mess and hassle from doing it yourself. 

Considering wallpaper for your property? 

Although painting is a top choice for all property owners looking to refresh their space, wallpaper can also be a solution for some renovators. Some of the common reasons property owners will opt for wallpaper include that wallpaper can often last for a longer time without needing refreshing. Some high-quality wallpapers can last up to 15 years. The problem that often deters people away from wallpaper is that it can be quite difficult to do yourself. Available in a huge variety of patterns and styles, wallpaper is a unique way to add character to any room. 

Wallpaper is often a little trickier to install than paint, but it can also last longer. Since wallpaper has been around for centuries there’s no shortage of styles and patterns available, many with vintage flair. 

Paint or wallpaper?

It all comes down to personal preference. What look are you trying to achieve? What budget are you working with? How much time do you have? The contributing factors are endless!
