Self-adhesive, removable wallpaper is a game-changer for those who want to add no-hassle pizzazz.

Wallpaper has been making a comeback over the last few years and is once again on many designers’ top trends list for 2021. The latest trend in wallpaper, however, may be less of a long-term commitment. Self-adhesive, removable wallpaper is growing in popularity. This can allow homeowners and stagers to use wallpaper in small doses without the pain of removal.

Wallpaper can bring a dramatic change to a space. But gone are the days where wallpaper is being used floor-to-ceiling for every room in the house. Instead, wallpaper is being used for accent walls or even just part of a wall.

Here are some ways it’s being used to dress up spaces around the home.

Above the molding

Some homeowners are using wallpaper in the dining room above the chair rail or in a bathroom above the molding.

Accent walls

Closets and mudrooms

Wallpaper can also be used to dress up closets or mudrooms as well as draw attention to a small reading nook.
