Wallpaper is not high on my list of wall coverings except when it comes to this product. It comes in a variety of textured surfaces and a big advantage over traditional wallpaper is that you just need to repaint with a different colour to create a new feel. It is easier to install than the coloured patterned wallpaper you see most often and it appeals to a wider range of tastes. Paintable wallpaper is an excellent alternative for those who have some design talent and want to be different.

This is the worst product I've ever had the displeasure to work with.
1.) Product stretches almost 1/4" when wet, then shrinks back to original size when on the wall, creating gaps between each sheet.
2.) Product tears easily when trimming around outlets, trim, etc.
3.) Product, when dry, began to peel off the wall.
All in all, this was a gigantic waste of time and money. I will be returning the remaining product and demanding a full refund for ALL product purchased.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by JenniferB Passable when it works, but it rarely does.
This product has several flaws which I've tried to work around, but overall it's just not user friendly at all.
1.) It stretches unevenly when wet. Not only does it shrink somewhat as it dries, but because it was unevenly stretched, it creates puckers as it dries.
2.) It is two ply, and the layers will come apart during the smoothing stage, meaning there is no possible way to evenly smooth out bubbles and creases, and because of the above mentioned stretching, this can't be fixed.
3.) It becomes very soft and tears easily when trimming, regardless of how new and sharp your blade is.
I used this for our bathroom to cover some mobile home panelling, and it did a passable job, but there are visible bubbles which appeared as the paper dried. I was sure I must have made a mistake, I bought more for our nursery project, but after hanging two sheets, and trying to deal with more tearing and separation of layers, I've just ripped it off the wall and am returning it.
If you're a pro at hanging wallpaper, very quick, and have the best tools, you might be able to make this look passable.

I used this in my kitchen as the previous owner had glued the paneling to the drywall.
When I removed the paneling the drywall was damaged and very unsmooth. This covered the damaged wall and it was not noticeable. It was great to not have to redrywall.
