Dry erase wallcoverings are a bit different than your average wallpaper or wallpaper mural. It doesn’t feature any images or color, but instead, it transforms your wall into a fully writeable surface.

10. Dry Erase Wallcoverings Are Functional
Let's get the obvious out of the way first – dry erase wallcoverings are functional. They provide an additional writing surface in the space. It turns a plain surface into something you can actually use. We've written an article on using dry erase in commercial spaces in particular, so be sure to give that a read for some inspiration!

9. Dry Erase Wallcoverings Are Clean
Unlike dusty chalkboards, dry erase wallcoverings are much cleaner and easier to maintain. You don't have to deal with annoying dust or chalk – just dry erase markers and a clean dry wipe to erase the board. This makes it perfect for spaces such as classrooms and boardrooms.
8. Dry Erase Panels Can be Installed Horizontally or Vertically
Both the Low Gloss and High Gloss Dry Erase Wallcoverings are around 60" or 1.52 metres in width; the Magnetic Dry Erase Wallcovering is 48" or 1.22 meters in width. Since dry erase wallcoverings aren't like regular wallpaper (i.e. there's no "pattern match" to worry about), you can install these dry erase panels horizontally or vertically. This gives you even more freedom, especially if you're working with hard-to-decorate spaces, such as narrow walls.
