What Is Removable Wallpaper? Here’s everything You Need To Know

It’s no secret that a child’s mind changes constantly with their nature to soak up new information as they grow - today they love teddy bears, next week they’re obsessed with superheroes!
A child’s mind is ready to burst open with creative ideas and stories, so it makes sense that their intimate space should reflect this. A storytelling wallpaper that your child can thrive off and admire is the best way to fill their blank room but the idea of installing it, damaging your walls and them growing out of it quick fast makes it sound like a daunting process - that’s why removable wallpaper is a parent’s dream!

So, What Is Removable Wallpaper?

Forget everything you know about traditional wallpaper - its heavy-duty glue is the main culprit of ripped and torn walls, and not to mention the tiresome, complicated and sticky installation process. This is because it’s intended to be a semi-permanent or permanent design.
When we say removable - we mean it! Remove, Reposition, Reuse - you name it.
Removable Wallpaper features a low adhesive backing so it’s gentle enough not to rip or tear your paint but super durable enough to reuse time and time again, even when it’s been scrunched or crinkled - it’ll always bounce back to pristine condition.
At Tiny Walls, we’ve spent years perfecting our removable wallpaper designs, by hand-selecting and sourcing only high quality and kind materials to suit the lives of growing children and renters who need the flexibility of beautiful temporary wallpaper designs that won’t damage walls or be a tiresome process to apply or remove.
Our removable wallpaper is made from fine-woven polyester fabric which is a more hygienic and durable option when it comes to peel and stick wallpaper - its breathable design allows air to pass through it easily, preventing the build-up of mould or mildew and can be washed and scrubbed without any discolouration or fading thanks to our high-quality UV inks that provide a crystal clear and bright finish.
This material is also a lot stronger than most other removable wallpaper materials and can withstand those curious little hands interacting with the design as well as any unexpected knocks or bumps, allowing for a much longer lifespan. All while being incredibly safe and environmentally friendly!

How Does Removable Wallpaper Work?

This wonderful invention allows you to apply wallpaper quickly, easily and temporarily! Probably sounds too good to be true right? Well let us elaborate on how it works:
You don’t need any special skills when it comes to installing our removable wallpaper and you don’t require any water or prep work - all you need is a primed, painted and clean surface for the wallpaper to easily stick to.
All you need to do is remove the backing and smooth over the wallpaper using your hand, ideally starting from the top of the wall and working your way down and there you have it! If you happen to mess up, just peel off and start again! There’s no need to worry about any leftover sticky residue with removable wallpaper.

How To Get The Most Out Of Your Removable Wallpaper

Like everything, there’s always a method to getting the best results and it’s important to keep in mind that every wall is different - from paint quality, to how old the paint is, to any existing damage prior to wallpaper installation. No matter how gentle temporary wallpaper materials can be, if you don’t have a good surface to start with you may encounter some hiccups!
So here’s some helpful advice to getting the most out of your removable wallpaper:
  • Always make sure to read and understand the materials of a wallpaper prior to purchasing to ensure there’s no toxic, nasty or heavy-duty glue that will damage your walls
  • Make sure your walls are primed, prepped and painted well before installation. If you think you’re overdue for a new paint job, it’s probably best to get this handled before sticking anything to it!
  • Clean walls prior to installation to prevent any unwanted dirt, dust or other build-up to stick to your wallpaper.
  • Always follow the instructions that come with the wallpaper, you might get carried away with all the excitement of a new wallpaper design but you should ensure you install it correctly for long-lasting use.
  • Be careful and kind when removing the wallpaper, remove from the corners first and gently peel off the wall.
Now that you understand what removable wallpaper is and how to use it, we hope this makes the process of choosing a design for your little one’s room that much easier - and don’t forget, if you change your mind, you can switch it up in no time!
