Are you tired of suffering from boring, plain walls in the home? You don’t have to paint or buy expensive artworks just to jazz up your walls! Wall decals look absolutely amazing and best of all, you can change them any time you want something new. Here’s everything you need to know about choosing wall decals.
Get the Right Size Decal for Your Wall
One of the most important things that you’ll need to do when choosing a wall decal is to make sure that you are getting the right size for your wall. Measure your wall before you go shopping for a wall decal so you can look for ones that are in proportion. Wall decals look best when there is some empty space around them but not too much. Take into account any furniture that is leaning up against the wall that you will be putting the decal on when you are making your choice.
Get the Right Wall Decal Design
Of course, another important thing to consider when choosing a wall decal is the design. Wall decals are now available in literally hundreds of different designs and just some of these include quotes, letters, flowers, trees, animals, pirates, princesses, and frames. You can even find blackboard wall decals that you can use just like traditional blackboards! There are designs for kids’ rooms, for bedrooms, for living rooms, and for kitchens alike. Look at the existing theme in the room and look for a wall decal that will enhance and complement it in some way. Also have a look at the colours used in the room. Do you want your wall decal to blend with the colours already used in your furnishings and curtains or to contrast against them? Just remember that the wall decal needs to contrast with the wall colour or you won’t even see it!
Check What Surfaces the Decals Will Stick To
Make sure you know what surfaces the wall decals will stick to. Many wall decals will not stick well to tiles, textured walls or some types of wallpaper. They will however stick to smooth painted walls. The packaging will tell you what type of walls the decals will stick to and what type of preparation you’ll need to do. Wall decals are designed to be very easy to remove but if you find that yours are offering resistance, heating them gently with a hairdryer will see them coming off much easier.
Get the Positioning Right
So that you aren’t peeling your wall decals on and off the wall trying to get the positioning right, it is a good idea to plan out your design before sticking anything to the wall. This is particularly true if you are using wall decals that are made up of many individual parts. Place the decals on the floor in front of the wall to get the positioning right and simply transfer them to the wall when you are happy.
