Hey Rasch, do you think I should paint or hang?
Rasch wall coverings and decor fabrics rank among Europe’s finest interior design products. This marvellous manufacturer has been producing world class wall coverings for over 100 years, so they know what they’re talking about when it comes to interior design. Hume Internationale has established a great relationship with Rasch, so we thought we’d share their views on why wallpaper trumps paint when it comes to redecorating your home or office. Yes, they might be biased, but they might also be right!
1. Wallpapers are cheaper than you think
Tally up the cost of all the products required to paint a surface properly. You’ll find that you don’t necessarily have to pay a lot more for a high quality, brand name wallpaper that looks so much better.
2. Wallpapers are long-lasting
Thanks to new technology and a revolution in the materials used in modern wallpapers, you’ll get a long-lasting product that won’t fade. Vinyl coverings are especially durable and you won’t have to update it until some time in the distant future.
3. Wallpapering is clean
Working with paint produces annoying drips and splashes. During wallpapering, if any paste should happen to drop onto skirting boards or window sills, it can simply be wiped off with a moist sponge.
4. Wallpapering can be less work
Pasting and hanging wallpapers is carried out in one action. Repeated painting, filling or dabbing is not needed. You get the finished result after one application, plus we’ve access to expert hangers!
5. Wallpapering is faster
Everything is finished when the wallpaper has been hung. You can save hours or even days worth of work. Who wants to sit around waiting for base materials or paints to dry?
6. Wallpapers can deliver special effects
Paint companies always trumpet about the special effects you can create using their products (just in case you get bored with a great big slab of paint). But did you know that modern wallpapers also offer a variety of dabs, wipes and spatula effects that are just perfect? Plus they can shimmer, glow, absorb sound, deodorize, act as magnets plus much more!
7. Wallpapers always give you the right colour
When mixing paints, there’s always a chance that the colour is not exactly right. When applied, the colour on the wall often looks different from the one you chose in the store. When choosing wallpaper, you always get the colour you want and it doesn’t change when you hang it on the wall.
8. Wallpapers create an atmosphere
Wallpapers are a simple and economical way to lift your interior décor. The selective use of colours, patterns and structures can produce an overall harmony or exotic ambience in any room.
9. Wallpapers express an attitude to life
Your choice of wallpaper expresses your way of life. You can show your personality by choosing from thousands of simple or complex design combinations that work in any room.
