After posting the viral wallpapered closet project reveal, I received a few emails asking for recommendations for the best peel and stick wallpaper. Great question! Temporary wallcoverings have come a long way, and if you’re living in a rental, apartment, or college dorm, removable wallpaper is the perfect option to give your space a punch of personality. Each of these wall coverings will peel off as easily as they stick on, so buckle up and let’s jump in!
Gorgeous Peel and Stick Wallpaper
Well, this affordable quartz pattern looks just like my bold kitchen island but without the commitment and cost of quartz. I love how it is installed above as a backsplash. What a perfect way to elevate a kitchen for apartment living!
If are looking for texture, this removable alligator wallpaper is not only hawt AF, but it’s also a great peel and stick option. The pattern is subtle and the raised texture is everything. I Gotta thank my vintage besties Marianne de Ley (check this paper in her rental) and Alison aka CasaSuperfine (who used it in her powder room) brought this wallcovering to my attention, and it’s available in black, gold, green, and blue.
Removable wallpaper used to be frowned upon, but they’ve come a long way baby! In fact, I’ll bet you never knew the black and white palm frond print (similar adhesive version)in my basement bathroom was peel and stick wallpaper! But then again, I don’t think the dude who hung it knew that it was temporary wallpaper either. Wow, he made a mess of things. But because it was temporary, everything turned out a-okay.
And that’s the best thing about peel and stick removable wallpaper. If at first, you don’t succeed, try, try again.
This Art Deco inspired arch print removable wallpaper caught my eye over on Etsy, and be sure to check out the seller’s full shop. They also have this rose and peony print peel and stick option that is a great alternation to Ellie Cashman’s pricy peony wallcovering that is not temporary. The one from Etsy is around $60/roll versus Ellie’s at over $600/roll. Yes, I know there is a quality difference, but when you’re talking removable wallpaper, this affordable Etsy option is perfection.
How fun is this Graphic Pink Raceway wallpaper? I’m here for all the Art Deco vibes with this chic and sophisticated peel and stick. Yes, it’s removable. I first heard of Drop It MODERN from my friend Anne Sage. I love how she uses wallpaper on the 5th wall – yes, the ceiling.
I first spied Bathing Beauties on Pinterest and thought clutch the pearls this print is perfect for the bathroom! Happy ladies lounging around in their birthday suits just make me giggle. I mean, could you love it anymore? Ummmm, yes, yes you could when it’s removable wallpaper.
Yes, Even More, Temporary Wallpaper Ideas
How fun is this bold black and white graphic print designed by Bobby Berke? No one ever has to know it’s peel and stick!
This Kelly Wearster Graffito dupe called Urban Chalk is an affordable option at under $40 a roll and a great way to jazz up your rental walls if you’re apartment living.
The last self-adhesive wallcovering that has to be included because it is by designer extraordinaire Genevieve Gorder (remember this adorable Minnesotan from Trading Spaces?) is Brass Belly. It’s part of the temporary wallpaper collection at Tempaper. I mean even the name is perfection!
I know I said one last one, but I just can’t help myself. Drew Barrymore is killing it with this yellow floral wallpaper pattern, but I also dig the blue and coral peel and stick for just the right room. Again, both are under $40 a roll which is a budget-friendly price you just can’t beat!
