One of the most frequent questions I get asked from readers is; “Where can I get that wallpaper in your dining room?”

Putting up that wallpaper was one of the first projects we did when we moved into our new home. And although it took over 8 hours to finish, I still love it just as much a year later! (Which is saying something, for me anyway.)

So this post is long overdue because I have a digital folder chock full of my favorite wallpapers (cheap wallpapers) that I can’t wait to share with you.

These wallpapers are all peel and stick, just so you know. After diving into the world of peel and stick, I will never go back to regular wallpaper. It’s just not worth the hassle to me.

Why use Peel and Stick Wallpaper?

Why not use peel and stick wallpaper should really be the question. Peel and Stick wallpaper is a fantastic solution for renters and those who want to change up their decor frequently (i.e: me).

Peel and Stick Wallpapers are basically the same price as the regular wallpaper anymore and they don’t take a lot of prep work. After a quick wall wipe-down, it’s literally just sticking it up on the wall (with precision). No priming and no mucky pastes. No residues to deal with after taking it down.

Not all peel and stick wallpapers are created equal. And for this reason, I go for tried-and-true, reputable brands that don’t cost a fortune. I once went off-brand with a wallpaper I found on Amazon (this was for my playroom makeover in the One Room Challenge.) And although the paper seemed nice and crazy inexpensive, it ripped a lot of the drywall off the wall when I changed my mind and took it down. So, you should only use the brands that are familiar to you and have good reviews.

However, I don’t think you need to go spending crazy amounts of money on wallpapers either. These cheap wallpapers I’m about to show you are all from reputable brands and are easy to apply and ridiculously easy to remove.

I tend to like neutral wallpapers with a small pattern, just because I think those have more staying power for me personally. I won’t get sick of those as easily. But I’m not afraid to admit that I can get swayed by current trends; like these watercolor mural walls that are taking Instagram by storm.

How to Save Even More Money

Wallpaper is a great way to add some personality to your spaces, but covering a whole room can get pricey. A good way to save some money with wallpaper is by opting to cover an accent wall only. Or, cover most of your wall with molding, and then top it off with wallpaper.

You can also add wallpaper to small, unexpected places; like the backs of bookshelves, a pantry or closet, a ceiling, or a small powder room. This is a great way to add some flavor to a room without going whole-hog.

My Favorite Brands for Affordable Peel and Stick Wallpaper

These are the brands that I look to again and again and that I’ve used personally and loved.

A lot of these brands are available at the same places (Walmart, Amazon, Target, Home Depot), so you might have to do some digging to see which is offering the best price at the moment. And some of these brands have exclusives with companies, like Home Depot, where they only offer that pattern at one store. So it definitely pays to look around.

I’m seeing more and more watercolor and scenic type wallpapers so I included a few of those. I also love a graphic black and white, as well as those quirky patterns for kids rooms!
