This high-quality wallpaper has a fine textured finish and is made of self-adhesive fabric which means no paste or water is needed to get it to stick up. You simply just peel and stick your wall mural and you’re all done.
If you’re thinking of choosing this material but aren’t sure if it’s for you then check out these six benefits for choosing this removable wallpaper…
Redecorate your home easily
Peel and stick wall murals allow you to peel off the wallpaper quickly, without making a mess or causing any damage to the wall. Unlike traditional wallpaper, if you make a mistake while installing your wall mural you can take it off and start again. This means you can redecorate your home as much as you want without causing a mess.
You can get seasonal and have a bright-coloured peel and stick mural during spring/summer and something darker during autumn/winter.
On top of the price of the actual wallpaper there’s the fitting of it. Not everyone feels confident with applying wallpaper themselves so will get a professional decorator in to do it – and they don’t come cheap either.
Peel and stick wall murals are less messy when it comes to the application process, as they’re self-adhesive so it can give people the confidence to install the wallpaper themselves.
Good option if you’re renting
If you’ve been renting for a while you may have found that decorating can be a bit of a pain. Contract limitations can often get in the way of adding your own touch to your home. Some landlords can be really strict and you can’t even hammer a nail in the wall to hang a photo without asking for permission!
Peel and stick wall murals will give you the freedom you’ve always wanted to add your personality to your home. You can simply stick it on without causing any mess and then take it off when you move out. Simples!
Great for childrens’ bedrooms

They’re not going to be into fluffy animals or dinosaurs forever. So as they go through childhood you can easily change their wallpaper to their taste with no fuss or hassle.
Perfect for parties
Birthdays, baby showers, Halloween parties, basically any special occasion can be made extra special with a wall mural.
If you’ve been planning a surprise for a loved one or having a big get-together at your home and have gone to the effort of putting balloons and banners up then a peel and stick wall mural will just add that special finishing touch.

Think you’re going to give a peel and stick wall mural a go? Then keep these top tips in mind for when you’re applying it:
Clean your walls
Give your walls a good clean pre-application to avoid any interference with the adhesive. Dirt and grime build up over time across the surface of your walls and if you apply your peel and stick wall mural directly to a dirty wall it might not stick on properly or may not last as long as it should. Just give your walls a wipe with warm, soapy water, to ensure that as much of the dirt and grime is removed as possible. Let your walls dry properly before you apply the mural.
Use on smooth walls
Peel and stick wall murals won’t stick properly on textured walls and the texture would probably show through the mural. Also if you did get it to stick it’s likely to not last as long and could possibly start to peel off so play it safe and use it only on smooth walls.
Order a bit extra to give yourself some extra room for when you cut it to fit your wall. You’d rather you have too much which you can cut to size than end up with too little.
Be patient and take your time to avoid getting bubbles in your mural. If you do get a little pesky bubble or two don’t worry and simply peel the wallpaper back from where you’ve applied it, reapply it and smoothen out the bubbles with a firm hand. You can also use a clean, sharp pin to pop the bubble and smooth out the air within.
Have a second pair of hands
Peel and stick wall murals are easy to install and you can do it by yourself but if you have someone with you it will make your job easier. That way one person can help to hold the wallpaper in place while the other applies it to the wall.
