Peeling wallpaper can make a whole house feel dingy and rundown, even if the rest of the house is in good shape. Many homes are older, and sometimes a top peeling layer of wallpaper hides a half dozen different layers. Removing the wallpaper can be difficult or even damaging. A good solution is to install paintable paneling directly over the wallpaper. This paneling comes in many styles and you can quickly transform your rooms into modern, attractive spaces.
