Use removable wallpaper on your kitchen breakfast bar

temporary wallpaper in your kitchen

I was perusing MyHabit for some home decor inspiration (because watching HGTV all day long isn’t enough of a fix for me) and I came upon this awesome kitchen decoration idea. If you have one of these pony walls/breakfast bars in your kitchen, think about using reams of temporary wallpaper on the side that faces out to your living space.

It’s a super-damage-free way to kick up the offbeat decor in your home without ruining your rental, and there are massive amounts of personality-complimenting temporary wallpaper from which to choose.

Weekend project, anyone?

  1. I love this idea, but has anyone used that temporary tile in their kitchens?? I’m wondering as it says it can be removed by the heat from a hair dryer, so if ur cooking does it have the possibility of coming off?

  2. Lovely. Perfectly lovely.
    I am curious however how easy it is to remove the wallpaper. Is it like a static cling sticker where there’s no adhesive? Seems like too large an area to depend on static electricity to keep up.

    • I just clicked on the link and answered my own question : it’s got adhesive. Reading the amazon reviews, I see there was only 1 person who tried to remove it and compared it to removing contact paper ( and also that it took a chunk of the wall with it ).

      If I were a renter, I’d give this a pass. Even if I did a “test case”, I’d be reluctant to bet my security deposit ( and then some? ) on it because adhesives become more difficult to remove as time goes on.

      • Agreed. I want to try so many no damage decor ideas, but it seems that lots of them have potential to cause damage. I do like decorating, but I do need my deposits back when I move out of places. Non refundable pet deposits are bad enough on their own!

  3. I have wrapping paper on my kitchen cabinets in my rental. Held on by light tack double sided tape in the corners they will come off easy-peasy when it’s time to move. And, if the mood strikes me, it’s cheap to change my decor!

  4. another baskets moment: doller store shelf liner. i got some cute brown gingham with apples on it and used it as a backsplash in my apartment. i used sewing straight pics, which leave teensy holes that normally dont even show, and i tkept the wall clean so now that i am moving out, i dont have to scrub grease off the walls behind the stove , or soapy resdiue from over the sink. cost me 5 buck to do my whole kitchen.
