The worst experience. We followed the guidance on the package & watched several videos on the best ways to apply the wallpaper. The design was extremely difficult to align and material difficult to apply to the wall. After all the time spent applying the wallpaper, it all fell off of our wall 2 days after we completed the project. Do not waste your time, energy, and money on this wall paper.
We used this wallpaper on an accent wall in our nursery, and the finished product looks beautiful.
For the pros, the stick/ re- stick factor is REALLY good. We had to unstick and start over many times on almost all the pieces and still were able to attach and smooth it out. It’s easy to smooth out bumps with a plastic smoother. It’s super easy to cut with an exacto knife. It looks beautiful and high quality.
For the cons, if your wall is not perfectly level (like ours), this project will be a big challenge particularly because of the pattern. It is nearly impossible to line up the pattern all the way down between two strips, and ours is off in quite a few places. However, when you step back and look overall, it’s not noticeable. Another con is easy to avoid- we accidentally had the top of one piece fold down and get stuck on itself (sticky part to sticky part) as we were taking the backing off, and that completely ruined that piece so we couldn’t use it. Be super careful while removing the backing and you will avoid this easily. Our last con would be that we ordered using the calculator and the 10% extra they suggest, but we still had to piece together the last bits of the wall with random pieces because there wasn’t quite enough to go all the way down. If you have any reservations about your ability to do this project I would suggest getting a little more extra so you can avoid this. The pattern repeats but it is super challenging to find because of how intricate it is/ it’s an optical illusion.
Overall, this wallpaper is beautiful, easy to apply in terms of sticking, but very challenging in terms of the pattern. It was a great spousal team building project for us!
This pattern is far more difficult to match than we originally thought when we chose it in the store, and it takes two people to handle and mount, but the results are pretty sharp. We did two bathrooms in this same pattern because we liked it so much. This vinyl 'paper' will slightly stretch if overhandled, so be very careful with application. I'd like to attach pictures of it up but this app not allowing this presently.
It's my first time hanging wallpaper and I'm glad I got this from Home Depot. It's fairly simple. Did take me about 3-4 hours for our wall. We have 8 ft ceiling and I used 4 rolls. It adds some interest to an otherwise plain wall in the bedroom. The gold color is subtle. However, there's a roll where I couldn't get the pattern to match half way down the wall no matter how I adjust it. Otherwise, it is good.
I used this to line kitchen drawers and shelves. The design is stylish. The thickness is great at resisting tears as you reposition and smooth it onto the surfaces. It can be pulled off but does not pull itself away without you physically pulling it off. It feels like it will hold well but time will have to pass before I can verify that. There is a learning curve with sizing it to spaces that are not squared off. I would have given it another star if it had measurement lines on the backing. You might not need those for putting it up on walls, but for creative and utility uses, like I did, it means a lot to have lines to assist with cutting.
Pros: Excellent Quality, Functional, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Nice Design, Sturdy
We finally got around to using this wall paper in a small hallway in our home yesterday. In a way, it was more difficult than we thought it would be but as a finished product, it is stunning in its effect. The problem for us is we have 9’ ceilings so the pieces we were working with were quite long. It definately takes two to get it on the walls and straight. We found it was easiest to have one person on the ladder and one below, holding the unused piece and peeling off the backing. The backing needs to be peeled off using two hands so it’s not pulled crooked on the wall. We finally settled on getting the piece started at the top and then going down the side, matching the seam and smoothing toward the other side. A plastic putty knife worked for the smoothing blade. Once the entire center seam was fitted together, we started at the top again and smoothed from the left to the right, taking out air bubbles as we went. It was easy to unpeeled and restick and the stick factor is great. I’d recommend this product highly if you have the patience for matching this pattern exactly. There are some other patterns where the match is not so important.
Saw a story in a magazine about adding wallpaper to the back of cabinets. Thought I'd give it a try. Chose peel and stick wallpaper thinking it might be easier to deal with inside a cabinet. This peel and stick is heavy and the prints are lovely. Like all wallpaper - except textured- a bump or other irregularity will show thru the wallpaper. Air bubbles are also a potential problem with peel and stick - perhaps a bit more so than with regular wall paper. One still must do vertical pattern matching - just like regular wall paper. Perhaps the biggest disadvantage I found with peel and stick compared to regular wallpaper was that I could not slide the paper into to alignment with the edge of the previously install roll. Also, the peel and stick tended to stretch a bit when I was pulling the backing off which threw the vertical match of patterns off. For those of us with little experience all wallpapering can be a challenge. If you are experienced or willing to be patient, and like to try new things, I can recommend the quality of this product.
Pros: High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Nice Design
I like this much more than regular wallpaper. However, make sure you really prep the wall surface, as this paper shows every crack and irregularity. Other tips: make sure to hang the paper vertically—I went horizontal on my first section, then had challenges matching the vertical strips between the windows. But...if you are matching small sections, cut along the diagonal lines instead of straight across the pattern to hide the joining. I did one test wall to see if this holds up to humidity in the bathroom—if it doesn’t, I’ll report back. If it does ok, I’ll re-do all the walls in our second bath over the winter with this paper. Also, use plastic or wood tools, or hands, to smooth air bubbles out...don’t use a metal scraper or smoother on a light-colored paper as it will leave a mark.
Pros: Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Looks Great, Rich Looking
Cons: push bubbles out with plastic or wood no metal
I've tried this peel and stick wallpaper from RoomMates before, and I used it as actual wallpaper. But I recently went for a roll of this temporary wallpaper for a VERY temporary use. We have a small space but were hosting a bridal shower. I wanted to have a selfie station but didn't want to lose my limited square footage to a bulky backdrop - so here came Peel & Stick wallpaper to save the day! This design is super elegant and was subtle enough to go with everything. Great part was that it came off super easy and didn't leave any residue on the walls at all. Everyone loved having a very instagram worthy backdrop - I liked the print so much I plan on putting it up as an accent wall in my office.
Pros: Easy to Install, Excellent Quality, Looks Great, Nice Design
