How do I put in 3D faux panels without destroying wall paint?

I want to put up 3d wall panels around the house but I have heard the horror of taking the panels off. I have even heard horror about the panels that claims to come off easy. I don’t want to have to redo my walls, so I’m looking for a creative idea on how to put them up without destroy my wall. (Barriers between wall and panel, or a certain brand that has proven to not destroy the walls)

This is the panel I want to buy

    Maybe commercial strength Velcro strips or double sided tape.

    If you are going to take them down , why are you putting them up? Just like wallpaper. Worry about the walls when you redo down the line. All you can do is make sure walls are primed and painted with a good paint.

  • I'm not sure it this will work since I don't know how the panels are supposed to be attached to the wall. However, what about adding a strip of wood top and bottom to wall and then attaching the panels to that instead of the wall itself. When/ if you take the panels down, you'll still have to remove the strip of wood and fill in any holes from the screws or nails you used to secure it, but it wouldn't damage the entire wall...just a thought. And pretty panels!

    I agree w/ Kim. Patching a few nail holes would be far easier then trying to scrape off wall glue. Good Luck :)

    What about using museum mounting clay?

    I also agree with Kim. Firing strips screwed into the wall and panels attached to the firing strips.

    Make a framework around the area to take the panels. Infil with Insulation and then stick / nail etc. panels to the frame.

    Put up furring strips and attach the panel to them. That way the only damage to the wall will be from the furring strips, which is easily repairable.
