Do you love the classic appearance of wallpaper, but hesitate to apply it to your home out of fear of it becoming outdated or the job not coming out well? Well, you might just be able to have the best of both worlds through this clever new product: temporary wallpaper.
What is temporary wallpaper?
I'm sure you are picturing some sort of magnetic wallpaper that you can just snap into place. Although that is not what temporary wallpaper is exactly, you're not far off. You can create temporary wallpaper by applying a cotton material of your choice with starch. It really is quite simple, and can be done in less than a half-hour. Simply dip the fabric into liquid starch and apply to a wall. When you want to remove it, all you have to do is peel the fabric off, wash it and the wall, and no one can tell the difference. Pretty clever!
Other ways to temporary decorate a wall.
Another form of temporary wallpaper is stick-on decals. These literally stick on the wall like a sticker and work wonderful in children's bedrooms. They peel off easily when you are done with them, although they normally can't be reused.
Where can I find temporary wallpaper?
There is a company, LolliProps Inc. that is producing a temporary paper called "Tempaper." The leather-like paper comes in multiple colors and designs and is self-adhesive, temporary, and repositionable.
Temporary wallpaper is a great solution for the cautious interior designer, the renter, or the person who likes to change their décor every six months. It is worry and stress-free, and there is no risk in trying it out. Request free estimates from prescreened painting contractors in your area to bring some fresh life to your walls.
