After falling out of favor a few decades ago, the wallpaper is back in full force, thanks to regular appearances on hit shows such as Upper fixator and all kinds of clever ideas to find on Instagram. But not everyone is comfortable embarking on a permanent makeover – dressing an entire room is, admittedly, a big commitment. That’s where peel and stick wallpaper comes in. While traditional wallpaper can be expensive and difficult to remove, the removable variety is relatively inexpensive, allowing you to experiment without worrying about messy glue or lasting damage.
Today’s temporary options essentially act as a big sticker. Just measure and cut out what you need, peel off the backing, and stick it to your wall or any surface you like, like the inside of a shelf or the top of a dresser. As it is self-adhesive, no glue is required. What if you don’t feel it in a few years? Simply remove, with no stripping necessary (or residue left behind) – an apartment dweller’s or serial redesigner’s dream.
Of course, the journey to even temporary wallpapered walls starts with finding the look that’s right for you. Here are 12 of the best removable wallpapers, from floral designs to textured metallic designs.
