Removable Peel and Stick Wallpaper: All you need to know!
Removable wallpapers are super trending in home decor right now but why? If you have dark memories of removing hundred years old wallpaper from grandma’s house and how you pretty much had to do the walls again, then removable wallpapers are a blessing from heaven.
We offer two types of removable wallpapers: Removable Peel&Stick and Canvas Peel&Stick.
Removable Peel & Stick: what’s about?
Instead of using the classic wallpaper glue a removable wallpaper is a wall film with active glue in the back protected by a backing paper. To install you remove the backing paper little by little and paste the adhesive side to the wall.
Not all removable wallpapers are formulated the same way. Our Koko Art Shop removable wallpapers are specially engineered to be completely stable and removable when installed on painted, clean and smooth walls.
The adhesive in the back of this wallpaper is a very technical type of glue that holds perfectly on the wall but can be removed by peeling it off without damaging the wall or the paint. This is also great because if you have a mishap during installation just remove it and place it back in the right position.
This wallpaper is easy to use, mainly installed by non professionals. Installing wallpaper is not as hard as a math exam but is not as easy as chopping a salad, it does take time for sure with patience and help from a friend you can do it!
It is very important to point out that just because it is removable does not mean it will fall off your wall after some time. Our removable wallpaper will stay in place until you decide to remove it.
