Why Removable Wallpaper Is an A+ Choice


Removable wallpaper, or “peel n stick wallpaper,” is the perfect decor choice for dorm rooms, rentals, classrooms, and more.

Most likely, you already own all the tools you will need. If you don’t, you can purchase our recommended tool kit.

Our temporary wallpaper is just like a sticker that can be left up for a semester or right up until the last day of school. Simply peel off the self-adhesive backing and stick to any smooth surface.

When you’re ready for a change, our wallpaper will remove cleanly off your walls without leaving any messy residue behind.

How to Prepare your Space for After School or At Home Learning

Whether you are staying at home this semester or heading back into a classroom, there are creative ways to decorate your space for back to school.

Adding invigorating color and pattern to any room can help bring a refreshing dose of joy and optimism as we continue to navigate and adjust our lives during the pandemic.

In a previous blog post, we shared our tips for redecorating your kid’s room for back to school. Here are additional ways to prepare your space for the school year.



Our top organization tips for back to school include:

1. Keep a schedule.
The start of a new season brings many new activities and challenges. Between work shifts, soccer practice, dance rehearsal and more, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.

Having a schedule visible on a chalkboard or dry erase board will help keep everything (and everyone) organized.

2.Dedicate a workspace or homeschool space for homework and Zoom meetings.
It’s easy to slip into the habit of working from the couch or kitchen table. Having your own homework room will help you and your little ones stay focused and productive all day long.

Showcase your own unique style with one of our bold prints, such as Wiggle Room. This dynamic design will make the perfect Zoom or Google Meet background, too.

3. Label everything.
Our must-haves for homeschool spaces also include labels. It’s easy for things to get misplaced or go missing. Stay organized by labeling shelves, cubbies, boxes and more.

If you’re looking for a stylish alternative to the classic label maker, we offer custom name peel and stick wall decals so you can display any name or phrase of your choice. Shop our personalized wall decals.
