Most people use shelf liner because it looks good but there are a lot of practical reasons to add them to your drawers, shelves, or even refrigerator. The right product can protect against dust, dirt, water, and even mildew. There is a lot to choose from when looking for the best shelf liner paper which is why we researched the top-rated products and put together this review. Let’s take a look at what to look for when shopping before getting to our reviews.
Type: Shelf papers are either adhesive or non-adhesive and there are pros and cons to each. Adhesive papers are guaranteed not to slide around but are tricky to install and can leave residue behind. Non-adhesive papers are just the opposite.
Non-slip: Non-slip paper is less likely to slip around the drawer or shelf and can also provide a grippy surface on the top to keep your things from sliding around. If you prefer a smooth surface, we found a few of those, too.
Size: When it comes to size, consider both the width and length. A 12-inch width is ideal because it easily fits into most drawers without needing to be trimmed. The length will tell you how much area you can cover.
Color Options: There are so many to colors and patterns to choose from, you’ll bound to find whatever you’re looking for. We found bright patterns, neutral solids, and even a few transparent options so you can create just the look you want.
Waterproof: Waterproof liners protect your shelves or drawers from spills or any drips of water left on your dishes after you put them away. Waterproof liners are a little easier to spot clean, too. Just wipe them with a damp cloth.
Material: There are a few different materials to choose from including thin and thick plastics, rubbery synthetics, and even smooth vinyl. Choose something that not only gives you the look you want but is also easy to clean.
