Buying Peel-and-Stick Wallpaper
Not so long ago, you had two options for wallpaper: The kind nearly impossible to remove, and the kind difficult to install.
But all that has changed! Wallpapers made from high-quality inks, with enhanced printers and state-of-the-art adhesives that go on firm yet slide off when you need them to, are widely available.
This means the peel-and-stick product you’re considering will help you tiptoe into the wallpaper waters without drowning. It’s cheaper and easier than pasted wallpaper, although you’ll discover quality can vary. Still, great options are available at every price.
What to consider when buying peel-and-stick wallpaper
- Roll size: Some companies offer only one roll size, but many are offering various sizes to reduce waste, thanks to print-on-demand business models. Many also offer custom sizes — you just have to ask. And some companies offer pre-stretched sheets rather than rolls, which means you just have to stick it to the wall like a giant Post-it note.
- Material: Most peel-and-stick wallpaper is made from high-quality, thick vinyl that is more forgiving when you hang it. This helps you avoid wrinkles and bubbles. It’s also usually more water-resistant than traditional wallpaper, so you can wipe it down with a damp cloth. You can hang it in the kitchen and bathrooms because it’s generally durable. Watch for PVC-free or low-VOC labels to avoid stinky and polluting off-gassing.
- Re-positionable: Peel-and-stick doesn’t necessarily translate to moving or reusing the wallpaper. Companies use various adhesive options they generally keep secret. If you don’t anticipate re-positioning or re-hanging the wallpaper, it might not matter to you. If you want the ability to move it, re-use it in the future or adjust after hanging, look for “reusable” or “re-positionable” in the description.
The following are the best peel-and-stick wallpaper manufacturers for you to check out.
Celebrity interior designers and DIYers alike love Chasing Paper‘s peel-and-stick wallpaper for its gorgeous prints and patterns, but also because it’s functional.
Sold by the panel in three sizes (2- x 4-ft., 2- x 8-ft. and 2- x 12-ft.), installation is super simple. The low-tack adhesive sticks as long as you want it to and can be removed at any time, too. Chasing Paper has some delightful, schmaltz-free animal patterns for kids.
If you can’t find a pattern of peel-and-stick wallpaper you like on Spoonflower, you’re not trying! The selection is seemingly endless and endlessly fascinating, from Ben Franklin chewing gum to alien-abduction toile.
Don’t worry, they’re not all this quirky. Spoonflower also offers gorgeous designs featuring William Morris and contemporary tropical florals. Is your custom pattern only in your head? This company can take your design and turn it into peel-and-stick wallpaper!

Rifle Paper Co.
Anna Bond, illustrator, designer & co-founder of Rifle Paper Co. brings her beautiful florals and folk-y art motifs to peel-and-stick wallcoverings, all to our benefit.
Rifle offers a soothing yet bold color palette and an eye for the whimsical and beautiful, from garden parties to city maps to my favorite design — menagerie, which I’m considering for my Jack-and-Jill bathroom remodel. It’s removable, easily repositioned, washable and made in the U.S.
“It’s my go-to brand for bold and colorful designs,” says Margaret Carroll of Margaret Carroll Designs.
Casart has been around since the inception of peel-and-stick.
Beyond the exceptional designs, the paper’s pressure-sensitive adhesive acts like micro suction cups that adhere to the wall when pressed and release when pulled away. This clever property makes it super easy to install — no bubbling! — and simple to remove. You can even re-roll onto the backing sheet and reuse it!
It’s wipeable, scratch-resistant and works in humid rooms like kitchens and bathrooms. You can also choose from murals with several finishes, or make a custom design.
Carroll loves Wallshoppe for a splurge, where designers such as Chris Benz (of J. Crew fame), Nathan Turner and even the fabulous Sarah Jessica Parker collaborated on wallpaper designs.
“When you invest in high-quality, luxury wallpaper lines, the removable backing material is better, the digital printing is sharper, the designs are unique and the papers are usually made of non-toxic materials in the United States,” Carroll says.
Opalhouse for Target
Target’s boho-inspired home goods line, Opalhouse, offers a surprisingly wide array of peel-and-stick wallpaper options. These toe the line between stylish and classic, in color palette and pattern.
I’ve been happy with the green Panther peel-and-stick wallpaper, which I initially bought for my office and instead used for the backs of some bookshelves in my daughter’s room. The colors are vibrant and the print clear. And it was easy peasy to install. It’s repositionable, approved for use in kitchens and bathrooms and made in the U.S.
Carroll loves Tempaper (so do we — it’s Family Handyman Approved!) as a budget-friendly choice for powder rooms, playrooms, offices and AirBnB properties. A single roll (20- x 16-ft., which covers 28 sq. ft.) starts at around $28.
Custom murals run more, about $12 per square foot, an affordable price for a truly distinctive mural. This line also offers some of the best ‘how-to’ videos for applying, measuring and prepping the walls.
“Ultimately, you’ll have a wallpaper that is affordable, feels bespoke and designed by an expert,” she says.
Haok Home will dazzle you with its stunning designs. Lush florals and botanicals, modern takes on traditional damasks, stylish geometrics and a generous kids’ selection await you.
The vinyl is durable, waterproof (yay, bathroom installations!) and removable. Custom sizes and colors are available upon request.
Wallmur is one of this editor’s picks, for a lot of reasons. They had exactly the design I had in mind, which looks like a Dutch oil painting, and made it easy to submit the dimensions to get the paper I needed. It’s mural-style, so sizing is key.
They were also printed with HP latex water-based inks. The resolution is beautiful and smooth, and there was no odor of off-gassing after installation. The panels came numbered and hung smoothly. The weight of the paper is excellent, and it held up very well in my bathroom. Our installer remarked it felt like higher-quality paper than some designer papers she’d hung.
Wallmur products are available in four material types, one of which is peel-and-stick.
