For those who are new to peel and stick wallpaper, it can be confusing. There is a lot to love about removable wall coverings, and the flexibility and freedom they offer. However, there will be people who strongly recommend that you use paint on your walls . We have compiled a list of adhesive wallpaper pros & cons to help you solve your dilemma.

Before we get into the details, let’s first understand why removable wallpaper is so controversial. There are many types of peel-and-stick wall coverings. A cheaper product may have a thinner build and a glossy finish that is not as appealing as a well-painted wall. A durable, peel-and-stick wall covering with a flexible matte finish can meet or exceed your quality standards. This is true for both the wallpaper’s adhesive quality and the inks used to create the design.
