I'm thinking about putting wall paper on my walls but I was wondering if there are certain brands that once I put it on I can lift it back and readjust again to re-align it better.

The better the walls are sealed the more time you will to adjust the paper. Thirsty walls will absorb the wallpaper paste giving you a shorter work time and make removal of the paper harder.

I was thinking that putting on a wall paper would be easier and quicker than painting; thus, I was considering. However, looking at a video on Youtube looks like it was not that simple either. I also have to consider the possibility of removing it at a later time and I still don't know how much work it'll involve as well.

If the wall is properly sealed, it usually not a horrible job to strip the wallpaper but when the wall isn't prepped correctly it can be a bear to remove the wallpaper. Stripping wallpaper isn't a job any of us look forward to!

IMO it's a lot easier to paint the wall
