Wallpaper You Can Paint Over

If you are looking for a unique way to rejuvenate your home, why not try something new with wallpaper you can paint over. Paintable wallpaper is a fun way to add depth and dimension to a room through the use of patterns and textures. Not only does this make a room more exciting, it can also make DIY that little bit less daunting. This is because once the wallpaper is applied, it gives you the option to assess a new colour scheme and re-paint whenever you feel like without the task of stripping back old wallpaper and preparing the wall all over again.

Why use wallpaper you can paint over?

You may be wondering, if you could just apply a paint straight to walls, why add a wallpaper into the mix. Paintable wallpaper is an excellent solution to many design problems, one example is that it can cover imperfections such as, poor plaster, uneven walls, or even holes caused by hanging pictures. What’s more, the thickness of wallpaper has a number of benefits such as helping to cover discolorations and defects to make a wall appear smoother and its ability to make a wall more durable which is ideal in high traffic areas of the home. Finally, a wallpaper gives you the opportunity to add fun textures and patterns which can be particularly useful in smaller spaces.

Although it is possible to paint over most wallpapers, it's best to use brands that have been specifically designed to be painted.
