Choosing The Right Wallcovering

While few would argue that wallpaper is aesthetically superior to paint, some may be surprised to learn that, over time, wallcoverings are also a wise economical choice.

Most wallcoverings can retain their original beauty and performance characteristics for many years. On the other hand, a painted surface requires more frequent cleaning to maintain its appearance and should be repainted every three years.

While the initial investment may be higher, choosing wallcoverings instead of paint can save you significantly over time.

Aesthetic appeal

Modern wallcoverings like those available from Levant Home & Décor have an aesthetic appeal that painted surfaces can’t match.

Let’s compare the two.


  • Flat colour: A single colour in a single room.
  • Accent wall: One room, one colour, except for one brightly coloured wall.
  • Textured paint: Media added to the paint.
  • Custom: The application of paint to create mural designs.
  • Faux finishes: Personalised paint designs that add patterns and depth.


  • Flat colour: Although single colour wallcoverings are available, they are not widely used.
  • Accent wall: You can achieve this by using wallpaper on one wall.
  • Textured: Textured wallpaper is available in various styles ranging from plain to ornate.
  • Custom: Mural wallpaper is available in several styles from our wallpaper shop in Polokwane.
  • Faux Finishes: Most popular faux finishes have wallpaper equivalents.

  • Digital designs: Manufacturers can create custom printed wallpaper.
  • Photographic: Personalised wallpaper can be created from your camera roll.
