The Easiest Way To Remove Wallpaper Without Damaging Your Wall.

The Easiest Way To Remove Wallpaper Without Damaging Your Wall.

You're probably here because you've decided to enhance your space by removing old wallpaper. The first thing you should know is the type of wallpaper you're removing. There are three main types of wallpaper: Peel-and-stick, Vinyl (traditional), and Coated backing/adhesive. To make it short, peel-and-stick is the easiest to remove, vinyl is a little more difficult, and coated backing/adhesive is the hardest.

In this blog, we will discuss the Indigo Design Co Removal Guide for peel-and-stick wallpaper. Fortunately, you don’t need to hire a pro because it’s a DIY project you can handle in a couple of minutes or hours depending on how much wallpaper you are removing.

Here are 3 ways to make sure your removal project will succeed:

1. Start from the top.

2. Slowly and evenly pull the panel straight down.

3. Avoid pulling the panel away from the wall as you pull down.

That's it! In almost all cases it will come off clean with no damage or residue left behind! 

If you're one of the rare ones that starts to see the wallpaper lifting paint, grab a hairdryer and heat the wallpaper before continuing your removal. The heat will warm and loosen the adhesive, so it comes off the wall more easily.

Once you’ve successfully removed your old wallpaper and are ready for a fresh start. Just visit for a wide array of wallpaper designs for you to choose from.
