How To Transform Your Living Room With Self Stick Wallpaper?
If you’re a home decor enthusiast like me looking to upgrade your living room, nothing could be more convenient than peel-and-stick wallpaper. Peel and stick are incredibly enticing because it is simple to apply and remove. With peel-and-stick wallpaper, you can completely change the look of your walls in a single afternoon.
Makes the Space More Creative
If you want an artistic and creative vibe in your living room, peel-and-stick wallpaper should be your first choice. Besides, there are multiple ways you can use self stick wallpaper and instantly transform your space. Here are some examples:
- Wallpaper on the ceiling
- Add wallpaper around the fireplace, and you wouldn’t resist staring at it
- You can line your stairs with wallpaper
- How about lining the interior of your closet with wallpaper?
Choose What Compliments the Entire Theme
Another factor to consider while transforming your room with a peel-and-stick wallpaper is to choose something that complements the entire theme of your house. Have a thorough look around and spot patterns and color combinations that might help you choose a wallpaper.
To pick the best wallpaper for living room, you can either explore your options by yourself or perform a random search on google to know what’s trending. And as mentioned earlier, there are multiple ways you can use wallpaper, so that also gives you a lot of room for experimenting.
How to Apply Peel and Stick Wallpaper?
Be aware that peel-and-stick wallpaper often sticks best to smooth, eggshell, satin, or semi-gloss finished walls. To make sure the product will adhere to the sort of walls you have, check the manufacturer’s instructions for the wallpaper.
Carefully measure the area you intend to cover in removable wallpaper to ensure you buy the right amount. Purchase a little bit of extra wallpaper in case of wrong application and challenging spaces like windows, doors, or little nooks.
Here’s how to apply self-stick wallpaper:
- Starting at the highest place of the wallpaper, peel off roughly 12 inches of the wallpaper’s adhesive backing and align the wallpaper with your lines.
- Press and smooth the wallpaper against the wall while removing the remaining backing, working your way from top to bottom.
- Keep pressing until it sticks properly.
- Run a plastic smoothing tool along the wall in downward motions to get rid of air bubbles.
Once the entire piece has been affixed to the wall, carefully cut along the baseboard and trim off any excess using your straightedge and a tiny utility knife.
How to transform a living room
Our living room is my happy place because I get to do what I love such as watching movies, reading book and taking a nap. So, from time to time, I like to tranform my living room into something different and more comfortable and give it a new look. How bout you? How do you tranform your living room?
Create a Home Office Area
A home office area is an essential part of any home. If you work from home, having a dedicated space allows you to focus without distractions. You can also use it as a quiet retreat away from the rest of the house.
Add Storage Space
One of the easiest ways to make your living room more functional is by adding storage space. This includes everything from bookshelves to cabinets to drawers.
Adding storage space will allow you to keep things organized and out of sight. It will also help you avoid clutter and make your living room feel less cluttered.
Install an Entertainment System
If you’re looking to add some entertainment to your living room, consider installing an entertainment system. An entertainment system allows you to play music through speakers while watching television.
You can choose between traditional stereo systems with separate speakers for each channel or surround sound systems that use multiple speakers to reproduce sounds throughout the entire room.
To make your living room more functional, organize furniture. This includes arranging seating areas so people can sit comfortably together. It also means making sure there are no obstacles between people and the television.
If you haven’t updated your lighting since moving into your home, now is the perfect time to do so. You should consider replacing old bulbs with energy efficient ones. Also, consider adding dimmers to control the brightness of lights.
How to transform a small living room

Decorate with color
A well-designed home office should feature colors that reflect your personality and style. If you work at home, you might choose a color scheme that reflects your personal taste. You might also consider using a neutral color palette so that you can easily switch out items as needed.
Install a Desk Lamp
A desk lamp is a must-have item for transforming your living room. It will help you see what you need to do when you sit down at your computer. In addition, it will provide light where you need it.
