Finding good quality wallpaper can be difficult with so many to choose from. Just heading in to your local DIY store and you will be confronted with vast arrays to browse and little to help you decide. From contemporary, to classical or even retro brick effect wallpaper, the choice is almost limitless. Unlike paint schemes, wallpaper can be a lot more difficult to visualise as you can’t so easily extrapolate from a small sample pinned to your wall in the same way as you can with a test patch of paint. Indeed, the difficulties of choosing the right wallpaper are being overcome by the exciting application of advanced technology.
Consumers have been buying home decorating supplies online for some time now, but it is only within the last three or four years that retailers have really upped their game when it comes to making the process of decorating as easy and stress free as possible. Gone are the days when you would have to traipse through a variety of different home decorating and DIY stores just to find the right type of paint or wallpaper. With the advent of super fast broadband connections, online retailers have been able to upload high resolution images of their stock to give consumers a much better idea of what they are buying.
Indeed, this is particularly useful when it comes to wallpaper, as it means you can eliminate the wide variety of pattern types that you do not like and so save on time. Indeed, many online retailers of wallpaper have advanced search functions which allow you to specify what colour and style you are interested in. That way, if you are searching for something in particular, say brick effect wallpaper, you can find it quickly and easily. Many will then send you a sample of your chosen product for you to compare and evaluate at home.
The advantage of this approach over more traditional methods is manifest – allowing you to sit back in the comfort of your own room and browse through literally thousands of wallpaper types without having to lift so much as a toe. Some online retailers have even been experimenting with providing advanced visualisation technology to help consumers see how an entire room would look when decorated in something like brick effect wallpaper. By uploading a picture of the room to be decorated, samples of wallpaper can then be superimposed over the top to give a better impression of what the overall effect will look like when the job is completed.
