Renovating can get incredibly expensive, depending on how far you go with the process. A few walls repainted and maybe a new piece of furniture is always cost effective, but what if you could have the benefits of a new looking wall without breaking your savings? Introducing the more cost effective peel and stick wood panels!
With peel and stick wood panels all you do is, well, peel and stick. It is that simple. Peel and stick wood paneling allows for a quick renovating that does not require you to knock a wall down or strip a wall down to the foundation, no. Instead, it is essentially like adding a poster to a wall. It can even be removed at a later time.
The interior design industry benefits greatly from quick DIY, or “do it yourself,” projects. Altogether, the industry is pulling in $10 billion every year.
It Far More Tasteful Today
You might be thinking that peel and stick wood panels are a bad idea. Generally, it has always been an objectively ugly design. However, that has since changed since its days of common use in the 1960s and 1970s. It is far more tasteful today than it has ever been.
For starters, the plethora of designs one can decide can get you more excited than you expected. And the best part, you do not have to invest in whole rooms to make a difference. If you so choose, peel and stick wood panels can be great as a simple accent wall. Bring that boring bathroom into the modern age.
How Does it Work?
Like mentioned before, peel and stick wood wall planks are simple to use, they just stick! However, there is a method to its application, and it is just as simple as the peel and stick wall panels themselves.
Obviously, you will want to decide on the wall you want to use first. Peel and stick panels tend to come in bundles, so decide for sure how much of the wall you want to renovate.
Next, completely clean the entire section. Peel and stick panels use adhesive and any residue left over can interfere.
Since peel and stick panels are typically made with wood, you can alter them with tools to fit your wall better, or cut them so they fit in strange spaces.
Now, once all that is finished, it is time to apply the peel and stick panels. On the back, remove the adhesive covering and stick it to the wall. It is that simple. It should be noted that you should absolutely be sure where you place them. You are dealing with adhesive and it is going to get hard to remove if you make a mistake. It is great to start at the end of the wall first and make your way across, almost like you are adding a border. This creates a baseline for the rest of the project.
