DING DONG! You run to the door, and in comes a parade of family and friends. Your parents (always early), your brothers and sisters, their kids, your rowdy cousins, your aunts and uncles, your neighbors who brought over a pumpkin pie, your college girlfriends who (thankfully) remembered your favorite brand of red… Do we need to go on?
‘Tis the season for roasted turkey, eggnog, and more people than EVER staring at your walls. Now think to yourself: when was the last time you painted? And that begs the question: when will you have time to repaint while prepping for the holidays? Luckily, the Kuotes and KKH have invested in a timesaving and stylish solution: removable wallpaper.
Our new curation of removable wallpaper is introduced just in time for the holidays (as is our holiday shop). We have already shared our tips on how to choose wallpaper with wow factor, and today we’ll additionally share our how-tos and insider tips for our new curation.
How to apply our removable wallpaper:
Removable wallpaper works best on smooth surfaces, and it applies easily to any primed and painted surface. We recommend using it on surfaces with a satin or semi-gloss finish. Removable wallpaper does not adhere well to matte or textured surfaces. It is also recommended that you avoid exposing removable wallpaper to prolonged heat or direct light.
It takes two to tango. If you don’t have an installer, we recommend grabbing a friend to help you apply wallpaper. One person should guide the paper at the top of the surface and one should align the design repeat towards the bottom of the panel. Make sure you measured your space carefully. Any air pockets can be easily smoothed out with a squeegee.
Can I apply removable wallpaper in the bathroom?
Absolutely. Wallpaper in the bathroom is an easy way to incorporate elegant design in a bathroom without going overboard with art or decor. Our removable wallpaper is printed on vinyl that can be applied in bathrooms or areas with moisture. The adhesive will not be affected by humidity either, so it’s a perfect product regardless of where you live.
Did You Know?
When describing wallpaper patterns, “straight match” and “drop match” are the terms you need to know. Straight match patterns are when the design elements match horizontally from one panel to the next. Drop match patterns are when the design elements run diagonally and there is a vertical descent between the elements.
How durable is removable wallpaper?
When you hear “removable wallpaper,” your mind may ask, “Well… how removable is it?” But do not fret! You can use it just for the holidays, leaving it for only a few weeks as a quick spruce up, or you can keep it up as you would with any non-removable wallpaper we sell. It is just as durable and will last indefinitely with absolutely no peeling! (I know. It sounds like magic, but sometimes dreams do come true). To remove, just start with any corner and firmly peel up or down slowly parallel to the surface.
Pro Tip: Our wallpaper is completely VOC-free, lead-free, and phthalate-free. Make sure you are not putting potentially toxic chemicals up on your walls! This is especially important when wallpapering for a nursery or kids room.
What is the Kuotes’ favorite style?
The peonies pattern may be my personal favorite (Cal here). It’s a refreshing mix of modern and vintage that serves as the perfect backdrop any piece in our Modern Classic collection. You can play it sweet and feminine, elegant and traditional, or boho and whimsy. It’s not boring, but it doesn’t distract from other elements of the room. (I generally prefer wallpaper that says wow without saying WOAH THERE). And who doesn’t adore peonies?
