Removable vs. Traditional: Which Wallpaper Type Is Right for My Space?

Wallpaper is an easy way to update just about any room. It provides more depth and character than just changing the color of paint. Although wallpaper has fallen out of favor in past years, it’s enjoying a new resurgence as people are looking for creative ways to personalize their space.

If you’re ready to embrace the wallpaper trend, you might be surprised at just how many options are out there. The first question you might ask yourself is, do I go with removable or traditional wallpaper? To answer this question, the experts at Wall Snobs are here to help!


Do you like to update your space often?


If you’re the type of person who likes to update their walls to reflect the most popular colors, or, if you just tend to get bored quickly and like to change things up, then removable wallpaper is definitely for you! Trying to remove traditional wallpaper is no easy task, but that’s what makes it so durable. At Wall Snobs, our removable wallpaper is also scratch and tear-resistant, but it can be removed easily when you’re ready for a change.

Are you renting?


If you’re renting a home or apartment, then chances are there are strict rules around making permanent changes to the walls. That means no painting, no wallpaper, and you could even be fined for the nail holes left from hanging pictures. Fortunately, you don’t have to be stuck with drab, bare walls. Removable wallpaper is a great way to express your style without losing your deposit. The removable wallpaper from Wall Snobs goes on quickly and it removes cleanly, so when you’re ready to move it will be like you were never there.

Do you want something you can install by yourself?


Hanging traditional wallpaper can be quite a task. If you want a simple DIY project to liven up your space, then hanging traditional wallpaper is probably not your best option. It can get messy, hard to handle, and frustrating if you’ve never done it before. That’s why, at Wall Snobs, we suggest buying our easy-to-use removable wallpaper if you’re not planning on hiring a professional to do it for you.

Do you plan to have your wallpaper for many years?


If you consider the addition of wallpaper to be an investment that you’ll want to have for many years, then traditional wallpaper may be the way to go. Although our removable wallpaper is made to last, you just can’t beat the durability of traditional wallpaper. There’s a reason why you can still find it (and have trouble removing it) in many mid-20th century homes.
