These peel and stick wallpapers are a no-obligation way to add a lot of impact to a room



Once upon a time, adorning your walls with wallpaper required long-term aesthetic commitment – and a lot of paste. Nowadays, a removable peel and stick formulation is very popular and widely available. Just like decorate with decals, these self-adhesive wallpapers – and these murals too – are a less engaging way to add a pretty pattern to just about any space. That means they’re great for embracing trends and being a little more daring than in the past, and they’re great options for rental, kids’ rooms, and really short-term design projects, like events.

Most of the peel-off papers and removable adhesives we’ve found are more expensive than their traditional paste counterparts, but they’re easier to install (many are repositionable). The vast majority of temporary wallpapers are made from vinyl, which makes them removable, durable and often washable.

The internet makes it easy to buy wallpaper at home, but if you’re not sure about the texture or color, most sellers sell samples. Below, we’ve rounded up a collection of gorgeous murals and wallpapers featuring eye-catching colors, graphic prints, gorgeous plants, and stunning patterns to line your walls.
