“I’ve bought pre-pasted re­mov­able wall­pa­per on­line for very lit­tle money and in­stalled it my­self,“Humphrey says. “It’s not hard to do at all, and you can get a to­tally cus­tom en­try like the ones you see and love in de­sign mag­a­zines.”

Humphrey says in­stal­la­tion is easy too. Just dunk the pa­per in the bath­tub to ac­ti­vate the glue, and then stick it on the wall and trim to fit. “It’s nervewrack­ing at first, but you get the hang of it,” he said. “If you’re in a rental, it’s re­ally easy to peel off so you don’t get dinged for your se­cu­rity de­posit.”

Schrock and Dick con­cur. “Wall­pa­per is vis­ual eye candy, and it can re­ally trans­form how a room feels,” they say.
