Every room is a separate problem, and every family will have its own views on the most suitable treatment. Generally it is wise to spend plenty of time deciding on the colour and material before Refurbishing the property. When choosing a material for wall decoration, any shortcomings of the room should be borne in mind.
Avoid cheap material or tools; they often take up more time than better ones and can lead to poor results. Do not skimp on preparations. Tiling on an uneven wall will never look satisfactory, and a painted surface will ruthlessly reveal inadequate preparation and undercoating. Take into account the use and wear the surface will receive and select the material accordingly. It is very disappointing when a whole room is spoiled by one or two vulnerable areas which will not stand up to cleaning.
