How walls look can make or break a room. But changing them is awfully expensive—it often involves loads of paint and some remodeling work. Cut costs by using wallpaper to instantly transform a room and give it just the feel you want. And as a bonus, it’s often easy to remove the wallpaper when you’re ready for a change.
You can further save money by DIYing your own wallpaper. This option is great for those budget-savvy interior decorators who can’t find exactly what they’re looking for. With DIY wallpaper, you can make anything your heart desires. Use photos, paint your favorite flower, or anything else you can dream up.
