Ideas For Small Living Room Decor
THOUGH the use of wallpaper may be somewhat restricted at the present time, there is no doubt that it is one of the most popular forms of home decoration both for walls and, to a lesser extent, ceilings. There are several reasons for this.
In the first place, a surface is much more quickly decorated with paper than with, say, paint: and the householder likes to have a room out of use for as short a time as possible.
Secondly, not all walls are perfect, and a wallpaper hides a multitude of small defects. And, thirdly, wallpaper has a kind of durability and usefulness all its own. Small knocks and abrasions do not show readily, and the absorbent nature of the paper prevents the moisture caused by condensation from detrimentally affecting it and, therefore, avoids those rather unsightly “runs” sometimes seen on a painted or varnished surface.
A further, and often decisive, consideration is that the hanging of wallpapers, while calling for care, does not demand a very high degree of technical skill, always provided that the right methods are adopted.
