Following right along this month with our “renter-friendly-decorating” tips, I wanted to share two of the coolest all-over wall covering techniques that have just hit lots of renters AND homeowners homes in this past year. Removable wallpaper and Fabric Starched walls. Both GREAT, non-permanent ways to give whatever space you choose in your house, a big punch of color and visual interest.
First, let’s talk removable or temporary wallpaper. Most wallpapers that people are familiar with are made to be compatible with a very strong paste-like adhesive. Which is great for stay-ability, but not so great for a renter or someone who likes to change their mind a lot with their rooms decor. When you are ready to take down traditional wallpaper it can be a huge pain in the neck! Well, thanks to some really innovative companies, wallpaper has now taken on a whole new life, with trendy patterns, colors and a brand new non-damaging semi-permanent adhesive formulas.
Creating a room full of colorful, trendy walls is now a possibility for lots of people who don’t have the option to paint. Again, just like wall decals or any other bold statement on blank walls, keep the word “accent” in mind. Picking just ONE wall or small space/nook to cover in a fun color or pattern can really make a room pop!
