Fabric wallcoverings - change or not


Recommended Posts


Our house was renovated in the 1970's and has been decorated (on the landing and bedrooms) with various fabrics. I have been told by various people that this was an expensive option and provides better insulation especially on the north facing wall.

My quandary is either to:

1) Remove the fabric and replace with plasterboard. However, I don't know what is lurking behind the fabrics and if it would be at all possible to use the existing lats as stud work.

2) Renew the fabrics - is this an easy option? It looks like it is just stapled to thin lats.

3) Leave well alone - this is my preferred option Big Smile [:D]but not my wife'sSad [:(]!

Any tips gratefully received.
