Well the holidays are over and if you’ve already transitioned your home out of its holiday decor, you might be looking for another simple winter project that will make your house look and feel good again! We’ve compiled a list of some of the ways you can use peel and stick wallpaper that will leave a long-lasting impression on you and your family to help get you through the winter blues.
Find yourself walking into the dingy kitchen that you aren’t quite sure what to do with yet? Have no fear! If you are putting off a full kitchen renovation to save more money, you can give your kitchen a quick (and comparably inexpensive) update with two of our RoomMates peel and stick products.
Peel and Stick Wallpaper
Peel and stick wallpaper isn’t your momma’s wallpaper. It can do so much more than make a wall look pretty and isn’t contained to just walls. If you want to use our peel and stick wallpaper patterns on your wall, be our guest! But have you tried putting it on your countertops or covering up a scratchy, tired looking butcher block island that was going to be your worst nightmare to refinish? Give it a whirl and you might surprise yourself with the final result. If you don’t love it, peel it off and start over. Ambyr over at @livingcountrycottage on Instagram really elevated her kitchen with our Carrara Marble Peel and Stick Wallpaper.
Peel and Stick Backsplash Sticktiles
Have an old backsplash that you want to cover up? Or how about a backsplash you hate in the home you recently purchased? Oh, no backsplash at all? Our peel and stick backsplash sticktiles will quickly fix your eye-sore of a problem! Find the look you want to go for, cut to fit (if needed) and smooth for a brand new backsplash look.
An overlooked area of your home that is also a great space to spruce up just might be your closet! If you have a walk-in closet, or even if you don’t, you can use wallpaper on the back walls or above as the background of your overhead storage shelf. If you have flat bi-fold doors or sliding doors you can cover the outside with your favorite pattern. Whichever you choose to do, this little project packs a big punch!
One of the most common areas that we see our wallpaper being put is in bedrooms and it’s no surprise as to why! You want to sleep and cozy up in a room that relaxes you and gives you all the happy butterflies when you walk in. Not up to the task of wallpapering an entire room? No worries! Our extra large peel and stick wall decals make it super easy to create a more serene room. If you want to have a Bohemian or Tropical look going on in your room, pick a giant wall decal that appeals to you and glam up your space.
The first impression that people get when they walk into your home is from your entryway. Show off your style with a knock out entryway that will be functional for your family, but also an area that will welcome house guests with open arms! We showed off this entryway refresh from Michele Savage at @unclutteredhouse on our Instagram and wouldn’t change a bit about it.
We mentioned that you can put peel and stick wallpaper on your closet doors, but did you know that you can also put it on the doors of any cabinet you have as well? This goes for your laundry room, bathrooms, kitchen, or even those built-in cabinets the old home owner kindly left you. Peel and stick wallpaper is a fantastic way to cover up something you want to get rid of or bring beauty to a flat surface that could be accentuated.
Feature walls aren’t just for the main living spaces in your home. They can be for your bathroom too! No matter the size of your bathroom, a feature wall on a small or large wall is a great way to bring detail into a space that often gets neglected. Add some shelves, plants, and a couple of decor items over your peel and stick wallpaper and you have a brand new look! Jane from @spiritdesire_x used our Palm Peel and Stick Wallpaper for her bathroom.
Also mentioned at the beginning of this blog post was using peel and stick backsplash tiles in your kitchen, but did you know you can also use them in your bathroom? Give it a try!
On a blog post we did a while back, we covered 7 ways you can reuse old wallpaper and using it on your furniture was one of them! Pieces of furniture like armoires, dressers, bookshelves, and coffee tables are a few of the items we suggest working on. The back of an old bookshelf can be covered to lighten up the space or you can cover a dresser drawer for a nice hidden detail. Anastasia from @alrupcycledfurniture really blew it our of the water by adding our Citrus Peel and Stick Wallpaper to this buffet.
Nowadays, everyone is working from home and spending so much time in one space that we don’t enjoy can impact our mental health. Decorate the space you work in so that it’s enjoyable for you! A nice backdrop for your zoom meetings, a cute wall to look at when you’re brainstorming, and covering your desktop surface are a few ways that you can use peel and stick wallpaper to make a happier space. Here’s a few benefits working in a beautiful home office space can bring you:
- Productivity increases
- Fewer distractions
- Increases comfortability
- Increases happiness
Windows and Doors
Window film can be used on smooth glass of any kind meaning you can add it to your living room windows for privacy, a mirror that you’d like to fog out, or glass peak-a-boos in your front door! Wherever you apply it, window film will give the look of your space more uniqueness and edge!
Last but not least, one of our favorite (and quick) home updates is to cover your stair risers in removable wallpaper or peel and stick backsplash tiles! It immediately elevates your home and gives it a personal touch that everyone will be sure to notice. Decorative stair risers are to homes now as crown molding was to homes in the mid 1900s and we are here for it! Jessica from @athomewithjessiedee went above and beyond redoing her stair risers!
No matter what you choose to refresh, having a fun project in the winter is a good way to keep the winter blues at bay. Being able to look around at a project you completed and are happy with will last so much longer than the remainder of the cold season.
