Unlike regular wallpaper, repositionable wallpaper is a wallcovering that may be moved around once it is applied to the surface. It facilitates installation especially if you are using a patterned covering or the wall is not plumb. We have repositionable wallcoverings that are also removable and reusable. Original designs are digitally printed on canvas-like vinyl with a unique adhesive backing. This type of wallcovering is great for renters, seasonal or accent decorating, and for use in children's rooms.

Does repositionable wallpaper require paste?

No, paste isn't necessary when using repositionable wallpaper. It already has a unique adhesive backing. Think post-it notes, only stronger. This creates a "magnetic" type bond with the surface to which it is applied. It just has to be pealed off of its backing and positioned where you want it to adhere. The advantage is that if it isn't exactly in the right position, you can remove it and reapply to align correctly. Some repositionable products are also reusable but not all are, so be sure to check how a specific product can be used.


Can you paint or wallpaper your room?

Sure, you can paint or wallpaper your room, providing you are the owner. However, if you are renting, or, say, a student in a dorm, you will have to check with the landlord to see if it is alright to paint or wallpaper. Landlords frequently object to ordinary wallpaper usage because it is difficult to remove and that task falls to the landlord when the renter moves! However, there is a repositionable, removeable and reusable wallcovering available which will not leave a residue on properly primed walls when removed. In essence, it provides "slipcovers" for your walls. The advantage for renters is that you can take it with you when you move and use in your next location. For homeowners, you don't have the mess of wallpaper paste or the extra cost of hiring an installer if you don't feel confident to install it yourself. The repositionable, removable and reusable product can easily be installed by one person and there are videos on the web site to illustrate installation.


Where can you buy reposition able wallpaper?

You can buy repositionable wallpaper on the web, in some home furnishing, paint or "big box" stores. But, beware when buying that you compare quality, size and properties and not just price. All repositionable wallpapers are not the same. For instance, some require moistening with water to apply. Some adhere better than others. Some are very thin. Some are more prone to collecting air bubbles than others during installation. Thicker ones more easily cover and mask any irregular surfaces. And then, there are those which are not only repositionable and removable, but also reusable. Making the latter type ideal for students, rentors, and anyone who want to decorate seasonally.


I am very interested in learning more about repositionable wallpaper Can it be customized for color and size?

Most definitely. Repositionable wallcovering can be customized for both color and size. You can upload your photos which can then be customized to your specifications. It is even possible to match colors to Benjamin Moore or other paint hues.Since this kind of wallcovering can be easily repositioned, you can install it yourself. However, if your customized size is especially large, it would be helpful to have someone assist you in holding the wallcovering during installation.


What is the average cost for the installation of wallpaper per square foot?

That depends on the wallpaper. Is it designed by an artist? Is it metallic? What is its quality? Is it produced by a renowned company with a lot of prestige? Doe it have special features? All these questions will play a part in determining the price you will pay and there is no limit to how much people will pay for wallpaper! So, there are too many wallpapers with varying prices to give you an exact answer. I can tell you that artist-designed repositionable, removable and reusable vinyl wallcovering which leaves no residue behind on properly prepared surfaces, sells from $8 to $12/ sq. ft., depending on the design selected. If choosing a traditional wallpaper, select a wall covering that you like and will not tire of too soon, as once installed, it cannot be easily removed. Then, decide if the price is within your budget or one you are willing to pay. Remember to factor in installation charges when deciding. There is no installation charge when choosing a repositionable wallcovering because it is "do it yourself", easily removed, and can be reused later. I hope this will help you in making a choice.
