The ultimate guide to removable wallpaper


If you’ve avoided wallpaper in the past because of the time and design commitment required, it may be worth considering removable wallpaper. Available in a huge variety of styles, from graphic patters to mural-size landscape prints, temporary wallpaper can be easily removed when your tastes change or when moving to new home. Plus, this wallpaper isn’t just for walls! Decorate the back of a bookshelf, install in place of a headboard, or makeover an old dresser from the flea market. This article from Freshome guides you through the world of removable wallpaper, explaining how it works, showing examples from the wall and beyond, and even provides a list of wallpaper companies for your next home project.

Wallpaper is one of the top home design trends; the gorgeous textures and patterns can really make walls pop. But many renters might assume that wallpaper is a design dream exclusive to homeowners. Others may worry that the patterns they love today will be passé tomorrow. Those worries are over, thanks to removable wallpaper.

Removable wallpaper, also known as temporary wallpaper, is the ideal design upgrade for renters. It uses special adhesives to stick to the walls permanently, yet peels off effortlessly when it’s time to move or remodel. Landlords won’t even know that it was ever there. The nightmarish days of steaming, scoring and removal tools or painted-over wallpaper are over.

If you’re not sure you’re ready to commit to an entire wallpapered room, consider using wallpaper as an accent. Here are some creative removable wallpaper ideas for your next project.
