Wallpaper has been a part of interior design for many hundreds of years (it was first used in China around 200 B.C.), and while its intricate patterns and pops of color can really enhance a room's aesthetic, let's be real—it has a terrible reputation. Wallpaper can be hard to remove, and existing, tough-to-match patterns present an obstacle for those looking to switch up their décor. That is until recently, anyways. Wallpaper has now returned to our good graces thanks to the invention of temporary designs.
New temporary wallpapers are ideal for renters and those who like to change their interior design every so often. Thanks to peel-and-stick sheets, temporary wallpaper is also easy to use—no matter your skill level. So if you're ready to hop on the wallpaper bandwagon and are looking to create an accent wall, liven up your office, or add dimension and character to an otherwise-boring ceiling, these are the retailers to turn to now.
Chasing Paper is every DIY enthusiast's dream come true. The brand was inspired by frequent movers and renters who craved the opportunity to let their personalities shine beyond basic white walls. Chasing Paper's stunning, high-quality material effortlessly sticks to nearly any surface, and it's easier to remove than regular wallpaper.
When you browse the site, you'll find an impressive inventory of temporary wallpaper, and you can filter your search based on color or style. Different design categories include industrial-style prints, animals, abstract art, flora and fauna, and geometric patterns. Chasing Paper also has a few collections with other brands and designers, including Penguin Random House, ban.do, Graduate Hotels, and Darcy Miller.
Since wallpaper can expand and become damaged when exposed to moisture, it often isn't the best choice for kitchens or bathrooms. If you've been struggling to find a temporary option suitable for these spaces, look no further than Tempaper. The brand's temporary, self-adhesive designs are engineered to hold up under high moisture and humidity levels.
Additionally, Tempaper uses environmentally-conscious materials like water-based ink and eco-friendly adhesive. The brand also produces all of its wallpapers right in the U.S. Drop by their site and you'll find an overwhelming number of options, which can be filtered by color, design, style, and collection.
Spoonflower carries a variety of fabrics, home accents, decorative items, and party-planning supplies, as well as two types of temporary wallpaper. Their pre-pasted, removable wallpaper comes with water-activated adhesive backing, while their peel-and-stick wallpaper is made with a textured, woven material that can stick to a wide range of surfaces.
The brand's designs are charming, quaint, and available in three made-to-order roll sizes. Browse floral, fruit, animal, damask, and geometric prints and graphics by independent designers, and you'll certainly stumble upon something you love.
Rifle Paper Co.
Fans of floral motifs and whimsical patterns probably already know and love Rifle Paper Co., but did you know the paper goods brand also has a line of peel and stick wallpaper? Available in a range of patterns, including many that fans will recognize from the brand's other products, their wallpaper is made with non-woven peel and stick paper that's repositionable and washable. Most of the options are floral-themed, although there are a few related to travel and animals to round out the offerings.
West Elm is known for its furniture and home décor, but did you know the retailer also carries an excellent selection of removable wallpaper? The brand offers a broad range of chic options from classic and mid-century to modern and contemporary, all from the best names in removable wallpaper—including Wallshoppe, Tempaper, and Chasing Paper. While you won't see as many choices as you will at other suppliers, you'll see the best picks from the best wallpaper brands, giving you a more curated shopping experience.
Wallshoppe is a go-to source for both traditional and removable wallpaper. The brand specializes in fun, welcoming wall décor, as evidenced by their bright and cheery fashion-forward prints. Wallpaper, in and of itself, is often characterized as a bold interior design choice, but Wallshoppe's chic options are even more out there—and we mean that in the best way possible.
You can filter your search for temporary wallpaper by selecting from a long list of styles and themes, including a few unexpected categories like lips and paint splatter. Each stunning design is sustainably printed in Los Angeles onto non-toxic, eco-friendly, and scratch-resistant paper.
Etsy is a go-to for unique gifts and one-of-a-kind clothing, but their home décor selection is certainly not one to be missed. Specifically, they have a surprisingly wide selection of temporary wallpaper, ranging from bold florals to minimal designs and everything in between.
The site makes it easy to shop by design style, room, color, and price, so you can find the perfect pick for your space. Plus, a majority of shops offer rolls in several sizes at affordable price points, so you can decorate your space without breaking the bank.
Graham & Brown
Art, wallpaper, and premium paint have been Graham & Brown's bread and butter for more than 70 years. Not surprisingly, the brand's removable "paste-the-wall" wallpaper is an effective and well-designed product. Instead of attaching sticky paper to the wall, you apply paste to the wall first, and then hang the wallpaper. In addition to saving time and effort, this is supposed to make removing the material super easy—it just peels right off.
You can narrow down your search for temporary wallpaper by choosing a specific color or pattern. That said, you might just want to get lost browsing hundreds of stellar styles, many of which feature more traditional designs with deeper hues. Some of the prints are so realistic-looking that you'll be shocked to find out the paper itself isn't actually textured.
Flavor Paper is known for its unique prints—seriously, it has scratch and sniff designs—and the EZ Papes line certainly doesn't disappoint. The wallpaper is digitally printed with inks that are water-based, odorless, and Greenguard certified, and can be easily removed with water in case you want to change up your walls. Though once you browse the offerings—toile, floral, and Queen Elizabeth motifs included—you probably won't want to.
Adhesive wall murals and removable wallpaper are Eazywallz's specialty. And, as the name suggests, it's easy to select your design and customize your order exactly to your liking. First, browse hundreds of styles and prints and pick the design you want. Next, you can choose either a small, medium, or large scale for your print. Then, you'll indicate how many panels you need to cover your space.
Aside from stunning wallpaper, Eazywallz also offers eye-catching (and removable) wall murals. You can get high-resolution images, illustrations, and decals featuring street art, animals, architecture, landscapes, and even outer space.
Looking for tons of designs and customization options? WallsNeedLove is the place to go. The brand's peel-and-stick wallpaper is made from one of three high-quality papers—you choose your paper type when you place an order—and printed with vibrant ink. Since you can customize dimensions to your space, you can also cut down on the time and money spent on your wallpaper project.
WallsNeedLove's temporary wallpaper is completely removable and also impressively resilient, as it's both waterproof and washable. The brand's striking designs include Art Deco, floral, bohemian, coastal, and mosaic motifs, among many, many others.
Hygge & West Daydream Wallpaper
Hygge & West is a residential décor retailer offering bedding, shower curtains, and other home goods. Beyond that, though, the brand is known for its gorgeous wallpaper. When you browse their removable wallpaper tiles, you'll find tons of styles and prints perfect for accenting your home.
Compared to other brands, Hygge & West's designs are somewhat muted, yet still elegant. The temporary tiles are made with polyester wall fabric and have a low-tack adhesive backing, which makes application a breeze.
