What Houzz contributors are saying:
Con: Need expertsWhether you decide to apply the wallpaper yourself or hire a professional, the tools (for prep, application and smoothing) and expertise required to apply it flawlessly are just a little more than that needed for a paint job. So make sure you have the necessary skills or the skilled people. Just like paints, wallpapers also raise concerns of releasing VOC compounds from toxic PVC. The VOC may continue to be released long after the adhesive has dried, so it is best to invest in an eco-friendly wallpaper range that does not release any VOC-compound or malodour.
3. Cover with a wall muralThis room goes from being beige to wow with the simple addition of a full-wall mural. The touch of green is subtle and perfectly blends with the warm tones of the space.Tip: Wall murals can be custom-made; choose from a family photograph to a picturesque or an abstract landscape. Fix it up on the wall and make sure to light it appropriately.
