Save Money on Home Decorating with DIY Stick and Peel Wallpaper

Recently my daughters wanted to decorate their room, but each child had their own opinion on how it should be done, so we solved the issue by using wall decals. I only now, via this post sent to me by a reader, learned that there is something similar to wall decals but it covers the entire wall- stick and peel wallpaper! I always thought wallpaper was something really difficult to do- but if it's something as simple (or nearly as simple) as wall decals, that is something doable even for the laymen. Here are instructions on how to do so yourself.

If you are looking to decorate your room in 2021 and you have a limited budget to work with then there are a plethora of strategies and tips that you can use to get the most bang for your buck. One of these strategies is using a stick and peel wallpaper. This type of wallpaper comes in a variety of colors and patterns which means that there is a great chance that you will end up finding the best wallpaper for you that fits all your requirements and fulfills your interests.

Kids stick and peel wallpaper are also available which can help you in adding personality to your child’s room. There are a plethora of interesting and creative designs to choose from that can help peak your child’s interests and express their personality through their wallpapers. Using wallpaper may come with its benefits but it can prove to be a costly process if you decide to hire a professional to install this wallpaper. Luckily for you, there are some easy steps that you can follow in order to install this wallpaper yourself easily and effectively. Here we will discuss those steps.

Step 1: Measure the Walls

This is the first and arguably the most important step of the process. Before you decide to even order wallpaper and wait weeks for it to arrive, it is important that you properly measure your walls to get the most accurate measurements possible. You do not want to wait several weeks for your wallpaper to arrive only to find out that it is smaller than what is required. So, taking proper measurements is paramount.

Step 2: Make Sure that you have the Necessary Supplies Available

Just because it is stick and peel wallpaper does not mean that you will not require extra tools and supplies to install it properly. Additional supplies like a level, a knife, and a squeegee to remove any air bubbles from the wallpaper are absolutely necessary to properly install a wallpaper.

Step 3: Properly Reading the Instructions

This might seem a bit obvious but properly going through the instruction manual is an absolute must as you don’t want to go into the wallpaper installation process with little to no knowledge. So, that is why it is always a great idea to go through the instructions beforehand. These instructions will provide important knowledge like wall prep that is required before you decide to even think about installing the wallpaper.

Furthermore, if you are hanging up and joining multiple panels together, the manual will let you know about the amount of overlap that is allowed between these panels. You can access all of this knowledge only by reading these manuals thoroughly.

Step 4: Getting Help (if it is available)

If you are living with someone and that person is willing to help you out with the installation of this wallpaper, then it is always a good idea to allow them to help you out in carrying out this process. Getting help from someone will make this process easier and manageable and it will cut down the time to install the wallpaper almost by half.

All of this and more is why it is a good call to get someone to help you out with the installation of this wallpaper.
