It’s the beginning of a new year, so it’s entirely possible that you’re ready for a new look in your home. Exciting times! If you previously had a mural, wallpaper, or decal pack installed in your room and you’d like to replace it with a fresh, new style, you came to the right place!

Removing your vinyl wall decals or wallpaper may seem daunting, but it’s even easier than it was to install them in the first place!

Following this little guide, remove your decals and prep your walls for a new look in no time!

1. Use a hair dryer.

It sounds a little crazy, but aim a hairdryer a few inches from your decal or wallpaper corner. The warm heat will loosen the adhesive, making peeling easy.

2. Start at the corner and peel.

If you have trouble getting it to peel up at first, use a butter knife or something with an edge that you can slide under to help you grip enough of the vinyl in order to pull.


3. Peel slowly.

Continue to aim the hair dryer at the next section as you slowly peel, allowing the warm air to loosen the adhesive as you go.

4. Repeat.

Feel free to tear the decals into small sections if it makes it easier to remove the excess vinyl as you go from your work area.

Boom! You’ll be looking at a clean wall ready for new decals in no time!
