If you’ve been looking for a reason to change up your boring, solid-color walls—consider this your sign. Modern wallpaper is a far cry from the stuffy prints that adorned your grandparent’s walls (although we’re still taking inspiration from them), and it’s a great way to add color and interest to tiny powder rooms and statement walls alike. 

Right now, tropical prints, textured papers, trompe l’oeil, grandma chic, and expansive murals are some of the hottest trends in wallpaper design. No matter which one resonates with you, you should find a print you love in our curated selection of products. Even better—most of these products are versatile enough to use for walls and more, including other home surfaces, furniture, and craft projects.

2. HaokHome Tropical Palm Peel-and-Stick Wallpaper

Top Features:

  • Trendy tropical pattern
  • Washable
  • Versatile applications 

The day tropical prints go out of style will be a dark day in our books. But until then, we’ll be decorating our entryways and lining our shelves with cheerful, uplifting palm prints like the one on this peel-and-stick wallpaper. We can see this as a touch of escapism to the walls in your reading nook or office or as a way to upcycle a thrift store dresser, but don’t let those ideas limit your imagination. 

Customers added this wallpaper to the inside of their closets, used it to cover storage boxes, and much more. While the print and cost of this product are A+, some reviewers were unimpressed with the quality of the paper, especially for larger projects. Some also noted difficulty removing the wallpaper, so consider keeping this one for small applications and areas that you won’t need to remove it from anytime soon.

3. Orainege Green Floral Peel-and-Stick Wallpaper

Top Features: 

  • Charming bird and botanical pattern 
  • Peel-and-stick application 
  • Use for walls, furniture, and more

Call it granny-chic, grand millennial, or cottagecore, chintzy patterns are back in a big way—and they’re definitely not the same as the ones you remember from Aunt Mabel’s house. We love this botanical print from Orainege because it walks that precarious tightrope between trendily vintage and outright stuffy, giving you a quick pop of color and design wherever you use it. 

Like any wallpaper, precision and patience are key when putting this product to use. Some buyers were frustrated with the thinness of the wallpaper and unable to get the pattern to line up, but even more, we’re happy with this wallpaper for small and large projects alike. As always, make use of that review section to find dealbreakers, dealmakers, and decor ideas galore.

4. wall26 Cartoon Wall Mural

Top Features: 

  • 25 designs to choose from 
  • Multiple size options 
  • Advertised as easy to remove

With this wallpaper, your living room can become a piece of modern art. No, this wall26 stick-on mural won’t go for millions in an auction, but it definitely has a unique, one-of-a-kind vibe. While we love the abstract, woman-with-guitar option, we’re also big fans of the stylized charm of the cartoon ice cream mural as well. 

Murals like these are in right now because, well, they take us someplace we’re not. And let’s be honest—who among us couldn’t use an escape now and then? Most reviewers loved these wall murals for home and business use alike, but depending on the design, some customers had trouble lining up the panels exactly.

5. Timeet Blue Tile Pattern Wall Paper

Top Features: 

  • Water- and oil-proof
  • Self-adhesive
  • Removable 

Alexa, look up “trompe l’oeil.” Actually—we’ll save you the time. This design term literally means art that tricks the eye. Like a delicious-looking cupcake that turns out to be just a very fancy bath bomb, “trompe l’oeil” wallpapers give the appearance of a 3-D surface—just in a less disappointing way. 

Since we have been dreaming of escaping to an English cottage where we can wear nap dresses and read poetry all day, this blue, tile-patterned trompe l’oeil wallpaper caught our eye. Add it in obvious (bathrooms, kitchen backsplashes, countertops) and not-so-obvious (stair risers, shelves, fireplaces) places for a kitschy, cottagecore vibe. 

Customers loved the way this wallpaper worked on furniture, kitchen, and bath surfaces, and, you know, actual walls too. Unlike some other peel-and-stick options, customers could actually attest to the ease of removal for this product, though a few people thought it came off too easily, and some didn’t think the product matched what was advertised.

Top Features:

  • No wallpaper paste needed
  • Ideal for renters
  • Attractive palm design

Ok, yes, it’s another tropical-themed wallpaper—but who’s counting? We love the look of this vibrant palm leaf wallpaper that’s loud-in-a-good-way and perfect for wall-to-wall coverage in small spaces. This wallpaper comes in three colors—green, blue, and tan—but we’re fans of the green, especially when paired with a cheerful pink (see customer pictures for ideas). 

While there are several featured negative reviews where customers mention that the wallpaper came unstuck easily, this product had mostly 5-star reviews. While you should definitely read carefully through the reviews and look at pictures for yourself, don’t immediately let the negative reviews scare you away from this product.

Gray with a little mix of pink, what's not to love?

Top Features: 

  • Glamorous, high-quality print 
  • Great for statement walls
  • Large size, roughly 12’x8’

Confession: We may or may not be a *tad* obsessed with watching influencer morning routine reels on Instagram. But while our bed might not get made first thing in the morning and our yoga practice might not ever look that photogenic, our walls could look camera-ready at all times with a wall mural like this. 

The first descriptor that comes to mind when we look at this pink-and-gray, oversized floral print? Heavenly—closely followed by French girl chic. Unlike some other options on this list, this wallpaper does require paste to install. However, most customers were happy with how this wall mural turned out, even with the extra time it took to put up. A handful of reviewers noted various issues with quality and installation, so make sure to read through all the comments on this product thoroughly. Installation pro tip: One customer switched out wallpaper paste with double-sided tape for a quicker, easier-to-remove alternative.

8. Blooming Wall Fresh Peony Wallpaper

Top Features: 

  • Romantic floral pattern
  • Thick paper
  • Water-resistant 

Is it just us, or does this floral wallpaper give off low-key Pretty in Pink vibes? Now we just need a romantic window seat and Jon Cryer to play our quirky best friend. But seriously, this bountiful botanical print would look just as great in a bedroom as it would in an office or to line a small space like a closet. Want all the whimsy in a more staid color scheme? Try the black-and-white option. 

Overall, reviewers loved the look of this peel and stick option and even validated the claims of thick, high-quality paper. As a whole, negative comments were few.

RoomMates RMK11328WP Pink Perennial Blooms Peel and Stick Wallpaper
Let the beautiful blooms give your home personality.

Top Features: 

  • Mess-free, peel-and-stick 
  • Easy to apply
  • Unique pattern 

The more we look at this retro, nature-inspired print, the more we like it. This peel-and-stick wallpaper option comes in four colors, ranging from muted beige to tropical punch brights, so you can hone the exact vibe you want in your bedroom, spare room, nursery, or anywhere else you choose to apply this product.

While most buyers gave overwhelmingly positive reviews, there were a few downsides in the comments. Reviewers talked about the ease of installation but mentioned that the application would be easier with a gridded background. Negative comments mainly centered on installation, namely, getting the product to stay on the wall. Also, super-detailed people (you know who you are) might get frustrated with the continuity of the pattern.

Hang Time

Have some questions about using wallpaper or what tools you’ll need? Read on for a few tips.

Don’t Let Bubbles Sit

Air bubbles will drive you crazy. It doesn’t matter how nice your room looks, if you allow air bubbles to stay under the surface of your wallpapered room, you’ll only be able to focus on that imperfection. As soon as you notice an air bubble, you need to remove it. You’ll still be able to reposition your wallpaper. If you wait until it’s already set, you may have to cut a tiny slit into the paper to get the air out. 

Don’t Forget to Clean

A little prep work will give you great results. Clean the surface of your walls and dry them thoroughly before hanging wallpaper. It will stick much, much better, and the other members of your household won’t be alarmed at the words coming out of your mouth. 

Make Sure You Have the Right Knife

An X-Acto knife is your best friend when hanging wallpaper. If you don’t have one, you should order one before you even consider starting to hang wallpaper. It’s going to save you a lot of time and frustration.
