If you’re looking to improve your home in terms of style and decor, you are certainly not alone. In fact, this is far from the case as up to $10 billion is spent on the industry of interior design for each and every year that passes us by. And other surveys actually show that up to half of all people who own homes (around 48% of them, to be just a bit more precise) actually planned to decorate their homes throughout the course of 2018 alone. Here in our current year of 2019, this number is only likely to grow (or at least remain constant).
After all, home decor should not be a stagnant thing. Ideally, at least according to interior design professionals, you should be updating the decor throughout your home at least once for every decade or so that passes by. In some cases, it’s even more beneficial to update home decor at least once in the span of every five years, for that matter. This can be ideal for a number of different reasons.
For one thing, it simply keeps your home looking fresh and prevents it from ever looking dated. Times change, after all, and so too do popular home decor styles and options. To keep your home looking how you want it to look, investing in new home decor once every few years can certainly be helpful and can even have a larger impact than many people realize is even possible.
Of course, updating your home decor is also ideal when it comes to getting your home ready to be sold. After all, you want your home to look as nice and as fresh as possible for the people who might potentially be interested in buying it. This has become particularly important over the course of recent years, as more and more home buyers to be have become interested in purchasing brand new homes, ones that have never been lived in before. Fortunately, updating your home thoroughly can appease even such prospective home buyers, no doubt about it.
And there are certainly many ways to update the decor of your home in small ways as well as in larger ones. If you’re looking to make a bigger change, you might consider a peel and stick wood accent wall. A peel and stick wood accent wall is a great choice for many homes and people, from those who own their homes to those who merely rent. After all, something like a peel and stick wood accent wall is easy to remove and easy to apply, making it ideal for short term use as well as more long term application.
The peel and stick wood accent wall is also ideal from an environmental standpoint as well as from the one of convenience. After all, a peel and stick accent wall made up of stick on panels or stick on shiplap is going to use far less hardwood product than installing full blown wood paneling into the wall. And while wood is commonly used in homes throughout the country, we must be careful about the wood that we use.
After all, hardwood is the type of wood used in these homes, and hardwood trees take a very long time to grow to maturity. In fact, some hardwood trees can take as many as 60 years of growth before reaching maturity and even faster growing varieties of hardwood trees will take at least 20 years. This means that simply planting more trees cannot and does not make up for how rapidly we are cutting them down. In fact, the opposite is true and so a peel and stick wood accent wall or stick on wood planks can present a much better and even more ethical option for many.
In addition to this, the peel and stick wood accent wall will save the typical renter or home owner a great deal of money as well. After all, having a full blown set of wood paneling installed will require the use of many other resources and will therefore be quite a bit more expensive. Most people, however, can stick on something like a peel and stick wood accent wall by themselves.
