Designing With Decorative Wall Decals

One tried and true way to get a new look in your space is by using a wall decal. Wall decals offer a quick and easy solution for boring walls that need a good sprucing up. Whether you’re looking to design a kid’s room, or want to add nursery wall decals to the baby’s room, there are a few tricks and tips you can do to make your wall sticker stand out more.

Re Arrange the Furniture

Making the decision to add vinyl wall decals to your space is a perfect time to move the furniture around in your room. If your wall decal is a statement or saying, try adding the seating on the wall where the art is placed. For instance, if the decal says “Great Eats Here”, place your dining room table (or bistro table) near that area of the wall to better capture the meaning of the wall decal. Depending on how large the wall sticker is, you could let it hang “solo” on the surface. This creates a focal point and draws all eyes to that area.

Use the Window as a Canvas

Decorative wall decals can be applied to windows and functions quite nicely on glass. You can choose from different themes, or purchase a decal that has an outdoor feel to it. Some people live in areas where the scenery is less than attractive, and they use window art decals to create a view that is more appealing to them. The good thing about going down this route is that vinyl wall decals leave no residue on the surface and they are very easy to remove.

Add New Accessories

Even if you are not planning on painting the room, when your new wall decal arrive, you will want to add new accessories. Try something small like decorative pillows, or throw in a vase or two. You can also add lighting with candle lanterns and lamps to spruce up the area even more. You may not know it yet, but once your new wall covering supplies arrive, you will be in the mood to decorate and design for days to come.

Measure First

There are a few companies that manufacture decals to custom requests, and you can find them online. Make sure you measure the wall carefully so that you get the right size. Most companies offer their wall decals in a variety of sizes, as some customers may decide to cover an entire wall.

Adding new style and flair to a space has never been easier. A wall decal could change the way you feel about your space, and ultimately change the way you use it.

So, when are you planning to spice up those boring walls?
