Wallpaper...love it or hate it?

Posted by   + Show Post

I just pulled off the last of wallpaper in our house this summer.  I like how it looks but it is tiresome to get off.

Do you have any wallpaper in your house?

No we don't. I am not a fan. We do have wall formica half way up our bathroom walls to cut down on maintenance and to make cleaning easy.

Interesting, I have never heard of having formica on the walls.

I even dislike borders. I put it up in my oldest son's room when he was a baby. It was such a PITA to take it down and then make sure all the glue was off so we could paint.

We built about 30 years ago. I don't know if the wall formica is even still made.  I don't like to clean tile, so the formica was an alternative, and easy to keep clean.

Now that I think of it, when we had the kitchen done about 3 years ago, we asked for an easy to care for backsplash, and some kind of laminate was used there.

edited to add: I did some googling, and formica is still being used on walls. I never hear of it though.

 Our house had wallpaper in the bathrooms and kitchen when we bought it...can't stand removing the stuff.

Quoting bhwrn1:

Not a fan of wallpaper. We finally removed the last of the wallpaper that was in our house a few weeks ago when we started to redo the bathroom. I can't stand the stuff. I will never put it up. It was here when we moved in. What a PITA to take down.

No, and I will never put it here. I've heard too many horror stories.

I'm not a fan of wallpaper.  The house we just bought has a tiny bit in the kitchen above the cabinets and I can't wait to get rid of it.
