5 Temporary Wallpaper Ideas: A Designer Look Without the Commitment

Article  | March 11, 2015 | HGTV

Wallpaper has made a huge comeback recently.
With new trends and styles, the look has far surpassed the country kitchens of yesteryear and is now one of the most sought after design elements on the market.
My dilemma is this: I love wallpaper, but I’m a renter.
Also, I change my mind constantly, so I tend to stick with flexible and inexpensive decor that I can move around or replace on the reg.
So wallpaper is not an option for me, right? Wrong.

I’m sure you already know that temporary wallpaper is a thing, but lately it has become a very popular thing.
Because of this, companies are exploding onto the scene with peel-and-stick products that look and feel like the real,
stylish stuff you pin and pine over. But if installing temporary wallpaper still seems daunting, some pretty creative folks at HGTV.com
have come up with other gorgeous and easy faux-paper methods to try as well.
Check out 5 ways to bring the most beautiful and unique wallpaper trends home, sans glue…and commitment!

Not ready to take the plunge or just don’t have the time to paper an entire room?
Try framing wallpaper on an accent wall for a no-fuss design look,
then add a bold wallpaper stripe with temporary wall border decals from WallPops.com.
Their inexpensive peel-and-stick strips measure 6 1/2 inches wide by 12 feet tall and come in a variety of trendy patterns or solid-colored designs.

Peel and Stick Decals

Another way to get the look of wallpaper?

And if you don’t like it, you can take it down and reposition as many times as you like!
