Every now and then you are having thoughts of remodeling your home. Sometimes even simple home projects like repainting the walls in your home or replacing the wallpaper you've had for years is a project you've always wanted to embark on. 

There are many interesting ideas you may find in interior design websites. However, revamping the walls in your home, or even just your bedroom should entail careful planning. Factors like budget and time limitations to complete the project are just a few to think about. Here are other things that you should consider to include in your planning:

1. Wall paper or Paint?

Both of these options have their pros and cons. If we were to consider cost, wallpapers would be a bit more expensive than paint. However, if you would be considering durability, wallpaper is more durable and can last up to 15 years, as compared to paint which would require "touch-ups" every 5-6 years on the average, even more so if it gets scrapes or cracks appear on your wall.

Painted walls may need to be decorated with photo frames, mirrors, or other things to make it stand out. No one wants to be looking at a bare, flat wall, right?

Wallpapers are more attractive and there are many designs to choose from. Some are even scrubbable, which would save you the stress should a toddler "accidentally" scribbled on it. There would be no need for you to buy other things to hang on your wall because the wallpaper design itself would suffice. Have you ever thought of bringing in the old but with a modern twist? If so, then you should consider mid-century modern wallpaper designs. It would bring such a warm, cozy appeal to your home and there is always a design that suits your preference perfectly. 

2. DIY or hire a professional?

If you have full confidence in your DIY skills, that would be great because it will save you some money instead of hiring professionals to do your wall remodel. However, both wallpaper and paint have different materials and supplies that are required to complete the job. Depending on the quality of the paint or wallpaper to be installed, do your research first. If you need to hire a professional, then do so. A little more added expense would be okay so long as you can be sure that the job is completed and properly done.

3. Family approval

Last but not least, you must secure the consensus of all the members of the family. It is not only your home, but theirs as well. Involve every member in the planning and in choosing the kind of remodeling project you'd be doing to the walls in your home. 


Upgrading the appearance of the walls in your house is a remodeling project that would bring in a fresh new look to your home. A bit more cozy, a little more lovely, and a place you'd always want to come home to!
