Pros & cons of peel and stick wallpaper
While this isn’t a brand new invention, temporary wallpaper is probably new to a lot of you! If you’re choosing between installing temporary wallpaper or classic wallpaper in your home, these pros and cons should help.
Pros of peel and stick wallpaper
I’m more than a little biased when it comes to the benefits of temporary wallpaper (I’m nothing, if not obsessed!). These are a few reasons I’d recommend you try out temporary wallpaper rather than using more traditional techniques.
If you rent your home, your landlord probably isn’t too keen on major renovations. Any permanent changes to a unit, such as traditional wallpaper, is usually a no-go.
With temporary wallpaper, you can enjoy your wallpaper for as long as you’d like (while keeping your safety deposit!).
It’s fast & easy to apply.
Traditional wallpaper is no simple feat. It requires a big time commitment to apply correctly (including drying time!). Peel & stick methods are quicker and more convenient.
It won’t damage your walls.
When applied correctly, temporary wallpaper won’t cause any damage to your walls. It’s as easy as peeling to remove!
It gives you decorating freedom.
If you’re a decorating fiend like myself, it’s hard to control the itch to redecorate!
Removable wallpaper is an easy way to amp up your space, whether you’re a seasonal decorator or just like change!
It makes a major transformation.
If you want a significant impact with minimal effort, give removable wallpaper a try! You can completely transform your space with this small design change.
Cons of peel and stick wallpaper
Truth be told, the cons of temporary wallpaper are few and far between. Still, they’re important to consider before you dive into a new project!
There are pricey options.
Whether you’re looking at removable wallpaper or traditional wallpaper, it isn’t always cheap! Peel and stick wallpaper can get pretty pricey if you’re trying to cover an entire room.
For a more budget-friendly option, try using it on an accent wall!
You could have trouble with texture.
It can get a little tricky to cover textured walls with removable wallpaper (plaster, brick, etc.). Still, with a bit of patience, it’s totally possible.
