Ok, so can you use removable wallpaper, like one of our Limitless Walls peel-and-stick murals, on textured walls? It depends on the texture of the wall. If you're talking about popcorn texture, it might not be the best option. The most textured we recommend a wall to be is similar to orange-peel texture.

Since highly textured walls have far less surface area than flat walls, the mural will not stick as well to the wall. For stippled walls, we recommend sanding the wall down and applying a coat of primer. If you have something like cinderblock or brick, they may stick well, depending on the texture. Contact us, we'll send you a sample, and you can see for yourself how well it holds!

Wall murals do not require completely smooth surfaces, which makes them the best option for renters, fixer-uppers, DIY fanatics, this-is-all-I-have-to-work-with moments, and so many more! With a wall mural, you can cover up unsightly walls that have years and years of hand oil rubbing against them.

If you're renting, you might be constricted by the landlord: no nails, no paint, leave it the way you found it. But what if the walls are painted lavender with puce green stripes? We got you covered, literally. If you're leasing an office space for your business, whether a startup or established, a removable peel-and-stick wall mural is a perfect option for you!

As always, make sure to test out your wall mural material on whatever surface you are going to install it on. We will say that if you are uneasy about a textured wall, invest in a thicker, darker wall mural, so cover up any bumpiness that the wall might show off.
