There’s nothing worse than spending time, money and energy on a decorating project, only to find that you’re not keen on the end result. Fancy a test run before you commit to stripping your brickwork? Or perhaps you’re in a rental property that doesn’t permit permanent adjustments? Whatever your motivation, here are three products that are simple to apply and – even better – easy to remove. Scroll through our gallery for inspiration.

1. Best for pattern fans From inky ikat-prints to zigzags, stripes and a tile-inspired ‘Trellis’ design, Etsy seller Betapet’s vinyl self-adhesive wallcoverings are easy to apply and come in custom colours. From £26.50 for a roll (etsy.com/uk/shop/Betapet).

2. Best for optical illusions Our top pick for easy-to-apply trompe l’oeil papers is the ‘Textured’ collection Tempaper, a US brand that sells removable, self-adhesive papers. While our favourite is the wood-grain panelling design, look out for the white exposed-brick design. £70 for a roll (tempaperdesigns.com).

3. Best for colour New cult-brand MT has launched the ‘Casa’ range of washi tapes in widths of up to 20 centimetres, so now you can decorate with it on a large scale. From £12 for a roll (mt-tape.us; stonegift.com)
