Is peel-and-stick wallpaper a trend that will last?

Bold colors and designs are in! And one of the easiest and most popular ways to incorporate both into your home design is with wallpaper. Once a decorating taboo, peel-and-stick wallpaper has become popular among students, renters, and homeowners alike as a great choice for staying on trend without the hassle of permanent changes. But is this a trend that will last? DIYers have seen properly applied peel-and-stick wallpaper hold up well over time—more than five years in some spaces. There's no way to say when and how sharply trends will turn. But with products designed to last as long as you want, while being easy to remove when you're ready for a change, there's no sign that peel-and-stick wallpapers are going anywhere soon.

Emily Bentley was hands-down the best realtor I have ever worked with. Her attention to detail, prompt communication, kindness, and knowledge were unparalleled. Emily was always available to answer questions, though she anticipated my needs so well that I rarely had to ask for anything. As soon as I showed interest in a home, Emily had every piece of information anyone could possibly want to know about the property, including technical structural information and details regarding past contracts. Her research and persistence saved me a lot of money throughout the home buying process. She was a fierce negotiator who was willing to think outside the box in order to best meet my needs. This was my third real estate transaction, and the only one where I experienced no stress whatsoever. I knew that whatever came up, Emily had it under control. It was an absolute honor to work with Emily, and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I was living in Florida and contacted Emily Bentley about a house in Waynesville, NC. My association with Emily started that day. Though I did not purchase that house, I told her I would be retiring in two years, and that I wanted to relocate to NC. Emily kept me updated on property in my price range for two years. Then I called her to say I was coming to NC in March 2019 for a week to look at a house. We met at the property only to learn it was under contract.I told Emily that was ok another house had my name on it. A street up from that property was a new house being built, about ten minutes later Emily called me and told me to come back to that neighborhood. She introduced me to the builder and he showed us the house. A week later we put a contract on that house. I feel if it had not been for Emily's extra effort I would not be a happy home owner now. Emily is a relationship builder and it shows in her work. Thanks again Emily for bringing me home!

Emily Bently did a wonderful job helping me get to know the area and focusing me on my hunt for the perfect place. She was incredibly patient helping me through the buy vs. build scenario. She even re-arranged her schedule when I added another day of househunting with less than 24 hours. She was very organized on having days planned in the most efficient way possible and did a good job giving me the flavor of the different areas.

Emily was highly recommended, by a friend, who said she had sold houses for two or three of his friends. Emily was always there for me, answered lots of questions, kept in close touch, both texting and on the phone, just about any day of the week, and often after working hours, when it was necessary. As I am almost 80yrs. old, she also kept in very close touch with my son, and daughter-in-law, who is a lawyer, which was a lot of extra work for Emily, but she did it gladly. In fact, she is still looking into something for me, with the buyer's lawyer, regarding NC Taxes. She is exceptional. I will definitely recommend Emily, with no hesitation, to anyone planning a home sale.
