5 Removable Wallpaper Tips

Change your wall and change your space!

Here are 5 tips for successful application.

1. Go for Quality. Make sure your paper is a good weight and not too sticky…just tacky. Not in design:)) To avoid damage to the walls choose a high quality brand of removable wallpaper.

2. Wash it. Clean the wall atleast 1-2 days before hanging. It must be completely dry.

3. Painted Wall? If you have painted or primed the wall, make sure you leave 3 weeks drying time after painting, before hanging your paper.

4. Protect the wall while hanging. Use something like a 3’ ruler behind the paper to protect the wall when using a utility knife to trim the paper.

5. Changing paper location? Keep the backing from your initial installation. Pull/peel from the top corner of first tile pulling down toward the floor (not out). Your paper won’t get stretched out of shape this way.

Remember to check the manufacturers guidelines too! This is a great way to add personality and elan to any room with the ability to remove and change design at will!

Check out these removable wallpaper vendors. (many offer samples for a fee)
