DECORATING

Choose Wallpaper With The Future In Mind

There's nothing quite like wallpaper for warming up a room and giving it character. It isn't without its drawbacks, though, as a design element. For one thing, the cost of buying and installing wallpaper is considerably higher than for painting-making it a longer-term design choice. When color and design styles change, or your personal tastes do, removing wallpaper can be quite a project, yet a necessary one before re-wallpapering or painting can be accomplished.

If you really want the distinctive look of wallpaper, consider the following tips to maximize your long-term satisfaction:

Choose washable wallpapers for kitchens, bathrooms and kids' room, where marks and stains are likely to occur.

The size of the pattern should match the size of the room: small patterns for small rooms, large patterns for large rooms.

Think about using wallpaper on just one wall of the room to add personality with less expense (and less removal hassles later).

Select wallpaper patterns with relatively few or neutral colors (e.g., white on beige) to maximize the variety of furnishing colors that can coordinate with your choice. (This is particularly important if you expect to sell your home within a few years.)

Before buying or ordering any paper, purchase a large swatch and tape it to your walls at home to see how it will coordinate with your furnishings. (Often, wallpaper companies will charge a restocking fee for returned rolls.)

Order enough paper so you'll have at least one additional roll of the same print run in case you need to make repairs later on.
