When it comes to decorating your home, often the biggest question for a lot of mums is whether to use paint or wallpaper. And while it may seem like an easy problem to solve, this is not the case for a lot of families as two opinions come together.


If you are still deciding on which way to go, the following pros and cons for each will hopefully help you make a decision. 


1. Wallpaper



  • You can create a feature without too much effort.
  • It hides dents, cracks and other blemishes on your wall.
  • It is very durable and can withstand a lot of traffic.


  • It can be tricky to put up, particularly if you have never done it before.
  • It can be extremely costly.
  • It can date very easily.

2. Paint



  • There is less preparation that needs to be done prior to painting.
  • It’s quick and easy to decorate a room.  
  • It is very durable.


  • Cleaning brushes, trays and rollers can be a tedious task.
  • Can take ages to dry and can leave a nasty smell.
  • It is easy to damage as it is prone to chips or nicks.
