We all know a coat of paint can spruce up a room like nothing else, but it's a pretty permanent solution. That's why we love peel-and-stick wallpaper. It gives you the ability to transform a room without actually changing the walls, which is great for renters or parents decorating a kid's room. And since it isn't permanent, it's also a great way to experiment with bolder designs and patterns that would be incredibly time-consuming to paint and a little scary to glue to your wall like you would with regular wallpaper.

There are many different size options and materials to choose from. Adhesive-backed fabric wallpaper gives a more textured look to your room, while peel-and-stick vinyl is a great option for bathrooms, kitchens and kids rooms, where you might need to wipe the walls down every now and then. If you aren't 100 percent sure about covering the whole wall, you can buy wallpaper tiles and frame them for some large-scale artwork that won't overwhelm your existing design.

Get inspired by these modern designs, then decide how you want to change up your space.
