How to Select the Best Wall Treatment Ideas For Your Space

Selecting the best wall treatment ideas for your home can be tricky especially when you are trying to cut costs. There are so many wall options to choose from for bedrooms, living rooms, and even offices. Do you like your walls plain, simple, interesting, or dramatic? Find out what’s best for your space and budget.

If you want something plain, just paint it.

But if you want something a little extra, you can add wallpaper or a 3D treatment. It’s easier to do than adding molding, cladding, tiling, or faux stone or brick. Here are the differences between wallpaper and 3D treatments and when to use each.


Wallpaper can be cost effective but 3D panels are a little more expensive. There are three types of 3D panels–plastic, fiber, and leather and they are sold in panels.

Wallpaper is sold in rolls and there are lots of varieties and patterns to choose from. Wallpaper is durable and long-lasting as long as the walls do not become moist. Some wallpapers are waterproof. You don’t have to repaint wallpaper like you do painted walls.

3D panels

3D panels can’t be used in as many areas as wallpaper. Usually, a 3D panel is used as an accent on a wall. These panels last way longer than wallpaper. They can also be painted after installation.

Both of them are DIY projects. But always get your measurements correct before ordering and buying either wallpaper or panels for your wall treatments. Let me know in the comments if you’ve used either one in your home and how it worked out.
