Painting Supplies

Port Paint & Paper  in Port Colborne, Ontario, is here to offer expert advice when it comes to tough home improvement choices.

Are you thinking of refinishing your walls but don’t know whether to use paint or wallpaper? Both can create an absolutely fabulous look within the home, depending on how you use them.

Paint is the cheapest and easiest way to give any room an instant makeover. It can be used to draw attention to a feature, or to disguise one. Paint takes less preparation time than wallpaper and it can help hide walls that are in poor condition, while wallpaper can exaggerate wall imperfections. Paint is also more versatile than wallpaper – for the feeling of a light, airy room, or a bigger room, paint is usually necessary.

Wallpaper may be harder to do than painting is, but it will last for a good deal longer than paint. In fact, many modern wallpapers will last for ten to fifteen years, whereas, repainting often has to be done as often as every couple of years, depending on your household.

Wallpaper is also unmatched in the aesthetic value that it brings to a room. It adds warmth, character, and beauty, and can be used to create an astonishing variety of effects. It changes the entire look and feel of a room.

Some effects that you can get with wallpaper include texture, paint it yourself wallpaper, custom wallpaper that has been printed with a pattern of your choosing, a natural feel, leather look, timber look, and much more. These are effects that simply cannot be replicated with paint.
