Whether you’re freshening up a bedroom in your house, or perhaps tidying up the rental or AirBnB, a touch of paint is often the quickest, cheapest, and best solution. Or is it? Have you considered wallpaper?

Wellington painters and decorators, Orkney Painting & Decorating have come up with the following infographic showing the pros of each to help you decide which option is best for you.

This infographic outlines 4 pros for painting and 3 for wallpapering

As you’ll see from the infographic, we have more pros in the “paint” column. This is because, in New Zealand, we’ve noticed quite a downturn in wallpaper usage and international supply in the last 3 years. Not only is it a highly specialised trade but there is also only a limited number of tradesmen who do this. If you’re considering doing the job yourself, we recommend seeking advice from Guthrie Bowron, Resene or other wallpaper suppliers and manufacturers.

We hope this infographic has given you enough information to help you decide whether to wallpaper or paint.
