    if there is no kids (below 4yrs) in the house wall paper is the best. else painting is better as most companies wont sell same kind of wallpaper in the next years.

      If you could I would advise stripping paper, skim plaster the walls and double coat paint with white primer coat....just my opinion

        The only thing to do is to remove the wallpaper, repair the wall with filler and paint.
        Easier is to repaper, but it is old fashioned and takes longer than painting.

            It's good to re paper. First of all you have to strip of then you can paint your walls but I will suggest don't paint over walls. Now choice is yours.

              Of course, wallpapers can be painted over as it will save your time and thus cost you less.
