Temporary peel and stick wallpaper is a revolution when it comes to interior design and home decoration.
It’s a versatile and innovative tool that allows you to breath new life into spaces without having to make a huge commitment.
While it works wonders for walls all over your home, it’s uses go far beyond the traditional application on walls. There are almost endless possibilities for temporary wallpaper uses and you’re only limited by your imagination.
To spark your creativity, we’ve put together some ideas about the most creative ways you could use temporary wallpaper. But before that, let us explain a little more about temporary wallpaper and how it works.
What is temporary peel and stick wallpaper?
If you’ve ever had any experience using traditional old-school wallpaper, you probably know just how difficult it can be to use. It involves messy adhesives that make the wallpaper quite permanent and difficult to remove. Many people end up turning to professionals to install this type of wallpaper because it can be difficult.
Peel and stick wallpaper couldn’t be more different. Easy to use, the wallpaper comes with a backing sheet which when peeled off reveals the gentle adhesive that sticks it to the wall (or wherever you’re using it).
The adhesive on temporary peel and stick wallpaper is gentle, making it easy to remove the wallpaper when you decide to make a change, however, it’s also strong enough to be long lasting.
To install the wallpaper, we recommend lining up your wallpaper to where it is going to be installed, peeling back one corner and sticking this to its final location. From this point, you just need to peel back the backing paper slowly and smooth the wallpaper to the wall as you go. For more information on installation, read this guide here.
Now, let’s get to the creative stuff.
10 Different Ways to Use Temporary Wallpaper
Step up your flooring game
Who says wallpaper is limited to walls? Elevate your interior game by applying temporary wallpaper to your floors.
Mimic the charm of intricate tiles without the permanence or labour-intensive installation. You can choose a pattern that resonates with your style – from classic Moroccan designs to contemporary geometrics – and watch as your flooring becomes an artistic masterpiece.
You could choose to use wallpaper on the whole flooring area or cut tile shapes to create your own design.
The selection of patterns, textures, and designs available in peel-and-stick wallpaper ensures that you can match your flooring to your interior décor.
It's essential to note that while peel-and-stick wallpaper can offer a creative flooring solution, it might not possess the same durability and longevity as traditional flooring materials. But don’t let that get in the way of your fun.
Create closet envy
While the clothes in your closet might do the talking, there’s not reason that their home can’t be a bit of fun either.
Line the interior of your closet with temporary wallpaper to add that pop of excitement that your clothing deserves.

You can infuse your kitchen with a burst of colour, pattern, or texture, instantly revitalising the ambiance.

Create zones in open spaces
Many homes have an open plan living element, which can make it highly functional yet may also reduce privacy.
If your space is open plan and you’re looking to create some separation between areas, adding room dividers can be an easy way to do so. But you don’t need to opt for any old boring room divider.
Adorn your room divider with wallpaper to have a new decorative space that clearly signals you’re in a different area of your home.
You can craft super unique partitions and add visual interest without breaking the bank.
Give your appliances a facelift
Don’t go out and buy the bold brightly coloured appliances – use your temporary peel-and-stick wallpaper to get the job done.
Picture this: your appliances, those everyday workhorses, now decked out in funky patterns, chic textures, or vibrant hues that align with your home's groove.
Transform your fridge into a statement piece, your dishwasher into an art exhibit, all without the commitment of a permanent makeover. The beauty of peel-and-stick wallpaper is that it's a style chameleon – effortlessly adhering to appliances and offering a quick escape route if you ever crave a new vibe.
From retro-cool to sleek and futuristic, you get to play design daredevil. And the best part? Renters, homeowners, and everyone in between can join the fun. Embrace change, swap out styles with your mood, and give your space a personality that's as dynamic as you are.
We do need to advise you that when it comes to appliances that heat up or require significant ventilation should be avoided.
