To Wallpaper or Not to Wallpaper?

We just bought a new house and the builder is giving us the option of putting up the wallpaper of our choice in the bathrooms and the kitchen. At first I was really excited but then a friend said she got sick of her wallpaper and that it was hard to remove. Any thoughts? -- iVillager Janette


Unless the wallpaper is neutral or has a wonderful texture or something that really makes the room, (and generally these kinds of papers are very expensive) then I would opt for paint and do a layered technique where you get some depth of color. I agree with your friend -- you may get sick of the paper before you move and it's very difficult to remove. Paint can be changed anytime you like.
