Trend Alert: Peel and Stick Wallpaper
Wallpaper in general is a hugely popular decorating tool that adds warmth, texture, pattern and color to interior spaces. Traditional wallpaper can be messy to install and has been known to put homeowners off from using it. Thanks to modern advances, peel and stick wallpaper is a fantastic alternative! You can achieve the same look for less hassle. Let’s take a closer look!
Why we love it!
Peel and stick wallpapers are extremely easy to use and provide a versatile solution which is why we love it! Unlike traditional wallpaper with installation paste, peel and stick wallpapers are less messy during installation and can be very easily updated if required. PLUS – there are so many different designs available so there’s something for everyone!
How to use it.
Luckily, there are a wide variety of colors, textures and patterns to choose from to suit all of your wallpapering needs. Peel and stick wallpapers come on similar rolls to traditional wallpaper but the backing has a self-adhesive surface ready to be installed making it extremely easy. The great thing about using a peel and stick wallpaper is that if you change your mind in a few months or years time and want to update your walls, it’s really simple to do! Gently peel the wallpaper off the wall surface and replace with a new peel and stick wallpaper.
Peel and stick wallpapers are suitable for almost all areas of the home to create more character to spaces. It is recommended by some suppliers that peel and stick wallpaper isn’t installed in bathrooms due to moisture build up, but always check with the individual supplier. It is suitable for powder rooms where there is little to no moisture created in the air.
If you have been worried about traditional wallpaper previously, the peel and stick versions are a great alternative to try out!
What to watch for.
There are some considerations to take into account when thinking of using peel and stick wallpaper in your home…
Depending on the supplier you select, the self-adhesive surface may not be as substantial as traditional wallpaper paste. It’s therefore incredibly important to do your own research into individual suppliers to ensure their products will last!
If you’re in any doubt about using a peel and stick wallpaper, contact the supplier and ask whether they can provide you with a sample before you make a final decision. This is also helpful to do to ensure the pattern or texture works well with your space and will give you more confidence with your selection.
Ways to make this trend last in your home
Peel and stick wallpaper can last many years if installed correctly and left alone.
If you notice any corners lifting away from the wall, avoid using normal glue as this can make the wallpaper more difficult to remove. Always check with your supplier before doing any DIY touch-ups!
