In this guide we’ll talk about four ways to cover a wall:

  • paint
  • wallpaper
  • fabric
  • an upholstered wall

And we’ll look at the pros and cons of each.



Paint Versus Wallpaper

Wallpaper pros and cons versus painting.

Wallpaper pros:

Wallpaper comes in a wide array of designs, patterns, and surface textures. You can even have wallpaper custom made on Spoonflower.

Wallpaper is more eco-friendly.

Wallpaper con:

It can?t be applied on raw concrete and textured walls.


The fabric alternative

While wallpaper has advantages, some people might be surprised to know that fabric can also be applied to a wall and depending on your goals might be a better fit than a standard wallpaper.

It can be applied with liquid starch.

One of the pros of this solution is that it is easily removed, making a decor change simpler.

Also it is mold resistant.

As upholsterers, of course, we love ?upholstered walls? (for example, these?upholstered chairs and matching wall).

Upholstered walls are great for sound proofing a room. With the right application they also can look very high end.

And according to Homes and Gardens upholstered walls are trending in 2021.
