Looking for the best
We love the idea that your home can be your own safe space. A home is a place you can decorate easily and quickly and put your own mark on your surroundings. When renting or staying in temporary accommodation, it is difficult to make a place feel like home, so we designed products that products can apply easily without damage to the walls.
This month we are celebrating 10 years of existence and sharing happiness with all of our customers, we would like to invite you to our contest “Best Before and After Walplus”. You can check the official rules right below to participate and win the best transformation with Walplus products. We will have 3 finalists and 1 grand prize for the best voted by our followers on Instagram.
Start your engines, and may the best makeovers win!
