Stephanie: Summer is always a great time for quick home refreshes! One of the ways I love to update a space instantly is to add wallpaper! Spoonflower makes it so much easier to get that interior WOW factor with their new Peel and Stick wallpaper made of high quality paper with a subtle linen texture that is thick and tear resistant. Spoonflower will digitally print the design you select (or create) in the quantity you need when you order it.

Why Should You Use Peel and Stick?

Peel and Stick wallpaper is a great wallpaper choice to experiment with since it can be removed and repositioned to your liking. So, if you’re looking for a good substrate to try out different wallpaper applications, then Spoonflower is your best choice.

This linen-textured wallpaper is great for upgrading rooms, temporary spaces, bookcases and an array of craft projects too. I even used it to create my DIY plant carrier project! Peel and Stick wallpaper is non-toxic, safe to use, and free from formaldehyde, phthalates, VOCs and PVC. A safe product for your home!

Installing Peel and Stick Wallpaper

One of the benefits of using Peel and Stick wallpaper is that there is no need for messy glues or paste. You simply peel the backing off of the paper, press the sticky side onto the surface and smooth. You can use the squeegee included with your Spoonflower order, or another wallpaper smoother to help get any wrinkles or air bubbles that might be trapped. It’s that easy!

Keep in mind that this wallpaper will need to overlap itself on the side edges, but the process is made super easy as you just align the design to create a seamless wallpaper look.

Use the squeegee to smooth out any air bubbles as you install your wallpaper.
Each wallpaper panel is printed with a slight overlap of ~0.5″ (~1+ cm) along the right edge to help during installation. This helps maintain an uninterrupted design across.

Choosing Wallpaper Designs

I was jumping for joy when I saw Tropical Garden, Green by thistleandfox. The motifs and colors were perfect for my home! I decided to give my linen closet a much needed refresh and wanted to do something a little different with the wallpaper to showcase more of the beautiful design. The closet on a good day is well organized, but I admit I was craving some character.

I opted to cover both the main wall and the DIY shelves I built with the tropical wallpaper for an instant wow factor. I adore how vibrant this linen closet is now. The wallpaper adds so much pizazz and character! The bold design compliments the teal walls and now no one minds grabbing toiletries or linens from this closet.
