The cost and style of the wallpaper you plan to use to decorate your sitting room will be foremost in your mind when you think about giving your home a new look. Hand-printed brands can cost more per roll than other brands may cost for the whole sitting room, but your decorator will be able to advise you on what is best for your home and your budget.
Most of the budget for the job is likely to go on your decorator and the cost of their labour will very much depend on the size of the room and how easy it is to paper. High ceilings, awkward layout and the need to cut out a lot of smaller pieces of paper will add time and therefore cost to the job. But what you will get is a professional and clean finish that you are happy with, free of bubbles, pasting mistakes and make-do solutions.
Once the walls are clean, flat and prepared, your decorator can get going. If you have cleaned off old wallpaper yourself they may still need to do some prep work and fill in small holes or cracks in the wall. If you have good walls and good wallpaper your decorator may be willing to save time and go over old paper.
Always ask how your decorator charges before they start to decorate your sitting room so that you can understand their quote. Some will charge by the roll of paper put up, others by the dimensions of your room and some simply by the day.
