paint vs. wallpaper for a smoker's study
In a room to be used by a smoker, is there an advantage to using wallpaper rather than paint? I am taking down a heavy vinyl-like wallpaper in my husband's study, where all surfaces have the color and odor of nicotine, and I am pleasantly surprised to see that the wall underneath is completely free of both color and odor. I was going to paint, but I am now thinking that maybe paper makes it easier to get rid of the smell and start fresh upon renovation. And in painted rooms it seems that people have a lot of trouble getting rid of the smell retained by paint. Does that make sense? Are there any other measures that are recommended for a smoker's room?
