Financial accessibility

It is best to start the comparison with an estimate of the cost of wallpaper, because before starting repairs, every homeowner tries to plan their expenses and think over the budget.

When answering the question of what is cheaper liquid wallpaper or regular wallpaper, it is worth saying that a package of cellulose wallpaper can be bought at a price of 90 UAH. Silk material will cost you a little more - from 150 UAH per package. A mixture from one package is enough to process 3.5-4.5 m². In other words, to cover 1 m² of wall, you will need from 22 UAH.

At the same time, the cost of preparatory work should also be taken into account. Liquid coatings do not require time-consuming surface preparation. The walls should be white or in the color of the material and primed. Surfaces do not need to be ideally puttied and rubbed. The final cost of finishing in this case is from 50 UAH / m2.

When sticking paper wallpaper, the surfaces must be leveled, puttied and cleaned. Plus, experts recommend pre-treat the walls with antifungal agents. In total, at least 150 UAH / m2 comes out (drywall, putty, primer, gluing, the wallpaper itself). The same figure for vinyl wallpaper will be even higher.

The complexity of finishing work

The process of applying liquid coatings is quite simple. You can get the hang of applying the material correctly in 15-20 minutes. The most difficult thing is to distribute the mass in an even layer over the entire area of the treated area. The only tool you will need is a special plastic trowel with an L-shaped handle.
