|Wallpapering a hallway||£200||£500||£300||£750||£400||£1,000|
Wallpapering in hallways can be one of the most difficult areas of the house to deal with and there is definitely a chance that scaffold or ladders will be needed to make the job go safely. All decorators have ladders, but you should ask if there is an extra charge for scaffold, as this may be hired in.
One of the main costs in wallpapering your hallway will be the paper itself. You can buy anything from a bargain brand from the high street to the kind of thing that you see in high end interior design magazines, so the pricing options are almost endless. A good professional will be able to help you decide on colour and finishes if need be and they will also have brands that they recommend, as well as sample books.
Once the surfaces are smooth and prepared and any filling in of cracks or making good has been done, your decorator can really get to work. The cost of the job will depend on the size of your hallway and the height will be a factor here too. It is more tricky and therefore takes longer to drop wallpaper from height and your decorator may need to bring in a second tradesman to help at this point.
Your decorator will probably charge by the day or hour, but you should check, as some prefer to charge by the roll of paper or the size of the room. All scrap should be cleared away at the end of the job and you will be left with a beautiful, clean hallway and a surface without the lumps, bumps and paste splashes that can come with doing the job yourself.
