I am fully wallpaper obsessed. Over the past few years, I have ordered countless samples for my own home and other projects we’ve worked on. Today, I’m here to share my favorite wallpaper sources with you! I’m dividing them up by style, and I hope you find what you’re looking for! I will also answer your most common wallpaper questions at the bottom of this post!
I am combining peel and stick and traditional wallpaper into these lists, so please keep that in mind if you are leaning toward one option more than the other. Traditional seems to be less expensive, while many people think peel and stick is less intimidating to install (saving money on installation). Wallpaper install for a small wall to a large room is typically between $500 to $2,000 (in my experiences), so keep that in mind when choosing your best option.
Wallpaper Source List: Hygge & West, Chasing Paper, Lulu & Georgia, Juju Papers, Serena & Lily, Etsy, Spoonflower, Jungalow, Lulie Wallace, Rifle Paper Co., Urban Outfitters, Target, Walmart, Wayfair, and Anthropologie.
Note: If wallpaper is not in your budget, we have many ways to fake the look of wallpaper in our archives here.
Q: What is the most affordable place to buy wallpaper?
A: I get this question about once a day, and the truth is, wallpaper is expensive! Even the affordable options are expensive and when you get into trendy designers you can easily spend thousands on just the supply, then another $1,000-$2,000 on professional installation.
My advice, if you are on a very tight budget, is to do one of our statement wall DIYs (some cost under $10 for supplies!). You can achieve nearly any wallpaper look if you’re willing to do the hours of labor yourself.
My next suggestion is to buy something you can install yourself. Both peel and stick and traditional wallpaper can be installed yourself, but you’ll need to watch some YouTube videos and be very patient.
For me personally, I am not comfortable installing myself (I’m not a perfectionist in that way), so I would prefer to save up for professional install and maybe save money on something I can more easily DIY like painting.
Bottom line: Wallpaper is a splurge of either time, money, or both. I think it’s worth it though!!
Q: I’m a renter—how do I know if the wallpaper will come off without damaging my walls?
A: I’ve had my walls damaged by BOTH peel and stick and traditional wallpaper. I’ve also had ones from both categories that came off perfectly and easily.
My advice is to buy a sample and stick it on your wall, then remove to test for damage. It’s absolutely a case-by-case thing.
Q: Can you put wallpaper in a bathroom?
A: I have before and I would answer yes for a powder room or a low traffic bathroom. For a bathroom with daily steamy showers, I would avoid wallpaper. The steam can make it peel up.
Thanks so much for reading! I’d love to hear your experiences and favorite sources in the comments! XX
