Many of us decide to wallpaper our homes ourselves. It may seem like the cost-effective option, but not getting the job done by a wallpapering specialist can actually end up costing you more. A DIY job can leave unsightly bumps and bubbles on your wall, and it can be a time-consuming effort to get the wallpaper to line up just so. Even then, it’s easy to miss something and be stuck with a room or feature wall that you just can’t enjoy. You might decide to redecorate, costing you more money in materials, but, in doing so, you risk the same thing happening all over again.
