Tips about removable wallpaper

Peel and stick wallpaper is the newest generation of the good old wallpaper we all know and fear so much (though less in last few years, since its splendid comeback to the interior design scene). We are here to make all your doubts and prejudices disappear and introduce you to all the great possibilities our Removable self adhesive wallpaper offers and how it differs from the traditional wallpaper material.

Why is it called removable wallpaper?

Call it peel & stick, self-adhesive or temporary wallpaper, one thing is true to all - it can be easily removed either at the moment of application (to make sure the pattern matches for example) or when you decide that a change of design is needed in your apartment (renter’s dream-come-true). The removal of it should not cause any damage to your walls, that is, of course, if they have been prepared accordingly.

Is it easy to install?

Probably the most important thing about the Self-adhesive wallpaper is that the application of it makes your busy life easier. Since we make our wallpaper in pre-cut panels, the patterns on which match perfectly once applied side by side - there is no worrying about the pattern puzzling and lots of excess material. Even the colors & pattern sizes of our designs can be customised to your individual taste.
As a home decorating option, it might be a bit pricier than traditional rolls of wallpaper. Though thanks to the adhesive backing and the easy application you can actually save some of your money, that would otherwise be spent on glue, as well as hiring a professional wallpaper installer.

Is it smooth or does it have a texture?

Either an artist or not - we can all imagine a bright white canvas. That is how our removable wallpaper material looks like, though thinner and smoother and not 100% opaque so watch out from using bright colors or patterned walls underneath it, as they might show through.

Is it waterproof & washable?

The use of the peel & stick does not stop with the living room and bedroom settings only. Since the material is waterproof and washable you can now add the bold accent wall you’ve always dreamed of to your bathroom or kitchen setting.

Can it be used in rooms for kids?

Parents, willing to add some stylish wall decors to your little one’s nurseries need not be worried since the material is very friendly - it tends to be friends with children as well as the environment and not PVC, vinyl and other evil twin-sisters of the factory-made products.

Can it be applied on other surfaces?

Even though it is called wall- paper it can be used on lots of other surfaces as well. Our wonderfully imaginative clients have used it on bookcases, shelves, staircases, doll-house interiors, ceilings and even as portable mini-bar coverings.

  • Hi there,
    Your wallpaper is really beautiful and your FAQ sheet is great but I would really like to see a section that includes How to remove the wallpaper, I think it’s important since your biggest selling feature is that it is “removable” did I miss it somewhere, are removing instructions included once you purchase?
