Infuse Your Style into Apartment Decor and Dorm Rooms

Don’t let white walls get you down! Most dorms and rental units won’t allow you to paint at all, while others insist that you paint all the walls back to white before you leave or risk losing your security deposit. Painting restrictions are common, and some spaces do not even allow you to put nails or screws in the walls. Strict rules can be daunting, but don’t worry, you can still live fabulously! WallPops let you celebrate any space, no matter how temporary, with the royal treatment of beauty. There are so many brilliant ways to make a space your own and give it a “wow” factor without damaging the walls! WallPops peel and stick wall art is perfect for apartment walls and super sassy for dorm decor! Check out these 2 decorating ideas:

Decorating an apartment? WallPops are brilliant for wall decor

Elegant black Baroque wall art medallions with shimmering mirror accents

Both of these rooms have pure white walls, but they do not look cold or stark. In the first room, chic turquoise, chocolate, and chartreuse flowers bring a vibrant and sweet warmth to the space. In the second space, elegant black medallions bring a contemporary glamour to the walls, and shimmering mirror accents add extra sizzle. WallPops are designed to work in harmony with walls, so you can remove them if you move, and even take them with you and use them again! This takes so much of the doubt out of decorating decision making. If you live in a dorm or apartment, you don’t have to worry that you will ruin the walls or waste money investing in the décor of a space that is not yours forever. Creating dynamic décor is truly accessible, and at such great prices, you can afford to decorate with latest a-la-mode whim, or truly make a statement with your walls! Here are a few more gorgeous dorm decor and apartment walls ideas with removable wall art.

One of the loveliest ways to make yourself feel at home is to surround yourself with photos of your family and friends. If you live in a dorm where you can’t use nails or screws in the walls, or you don’t want to damage your apartment walls, you can still create a gorgeous gallery! WallPops frame decals are peel and stick so you can affix photos and artwork to the walls in beautiful frames without making any holes! These removable frame decals are perfect for a little apartment therapy and dorm couture!

      Wall decals are the perfect way to decorate an apartment with firewalls. I have done the kitchen with coffee cups and pots, the living room with bamboo and the bedroom has sayings and will have cherry blossoms. I have showed so many of these to my husband he says order whatever and do your thing. I hope he doesn’t noticed the pink blossoms all over the bedroom lol.

    Love your wall decals, these would be great for Nursery Decor and children’s rooms. Kids grow so fast and the wall art makes it easy to change the wall decor as they grow.

    I would love to do a feature wall in my son’s room with a faux red brick pattern. Do you have such a thing???

      February 17, 2015

      Hello – thanks for the question. A brick feature wall in a boys room sounds very stylish! We do not ahve any peel & stick removable wall decals, like WallPops, that would create this. We do, however, have several brick wallpapers, some with authentic brick texture and some paintable ones which you can see here: We also have some brick wall murals and a self-adhesive vinyl brick film. Let us know if you have any more questions & best of luck with your decor project.

      Hi Cyndi – thanks for the great question. We have a whole line of peel & stick and static cling decals that are designed specifically for windows. You can shop them here: There are stained glass style decals, fun stick-arounds and privacy films to choose from. Any of them should work well for letting birds know about the glass to prevent them from flying into your windows.

    This kit, as featured in the magazine, appears to almost mimic a canvas picture I have in my bathroom. I would like to enhance another wall with it. Please help!

    These are great for a rental apartment. Easy to peel off and keep the wall in perfect condition when you move out.

    I have a particular problem that maybe solved by using Wallpops.
    I may use a room in a elderly community center to give Art instruction. The room has 2 window walls which bathes the environment with a glaring Florida sunlight. opposite to what a painting studio should have, which is North Light.
    I am not allowed to nail anything or put curtains. They do not have another room available…
    I want to create a corner for myself where the sun is banned and I can judge my colors and values accurately. Your Wallpop should work as a sunscreen with no direct sunlight on my work. You don’t mention measurements.

      Hi Bernie! It sounds like our window films may be a good solution for you. Each decal has the measurements listed in the description on each product’s individual page, but let us know if there’s a specific one you’re interested in!

    Are the DC Fix Self Adhesive Vinyl, peel and stick tiles, and peel and stick borders 100% removal without residue? These seem to be different products than the wallpop removable decals and wallpaper.

      Hi Angela! You are correct, they are different products than the WallPops/NuWallpaper line. These adhesive products are meant for a more permanent usage, and are not guaranteed to peel off as easily and damage-free as WallPops do.

    Question. My walls and ceiling in my bedroom are light mocha color and I want to go withe an almost white peelable paper on the walls. What do I do about the ceiling?

      Hi Rebecca! If the ceiling is flat and smooth, you could adhere WallPops or NuWallpaper to it!

    The cabinets in my apartment are very white. Will wallpops work for the wood cabinets without damaging when I peel them off later?

      Hi Emma! WallPops will not damage your cabinets. They stick to any smooth, flat surface and do not leave any reside behind, making them perfect for rentals.
      Please let us know if you have any other questions. Happy decorating!

    Hi there! I am super interested in many of your products – wallpaper, frame kit, etc., but in our apartment we have textured walls. Will your products work for textured walls? Thank you!

      January 26, 2017

      Hi Karen! In general, we recommend only applying NuWallpaper and our decals to smooth surfaces, however, they can stick to some textured walls. If the texture is fabric-based, very porous like brick or some concrete, or overly textured like popcorn ceilings, it may not be a good surface to stick to. If it is only slightly textured, it should work just fine- but we recommend ordering a sample of NuWallpaper first if you’re still unsure! Please let us know if we can be of any further help.
