Wall decals have become very popular in the interior design world over the past several years. They are quicker and cheaper than other decorating techniques such as wall paper and painted designs. Another reason why wall decals are great is that you can see how they will look in your space before application, and they can be easily removed when you need a design change. If you are planning on using decals in your next design, here are some great tips to make it a success.
First and foremost, you will want to make a plan for your decal design. Decide what room you want to add decals to, and what theme you will be using. Carefully consider these options. You may be excited about putting a giant decal of your favorite sports player in your living room now, but it may seem out of place later. You’ll also want to make sure that your decals colors match with the color scheme already in the room. It’s easiest to decal in rooms with very neutral wall and furniture colors.
After you’ve chosen your decal and space, check the decals quality. Make sure that it looks well made and that any custom decals are spelled correctly. Read the instructions and advisories for your decal as well. You’ll want to know what kind of wall paint or wall surface you have before application. Decals can be easily removed from the majority of surfaces, but there are a few that can be damaged after application.
Have fun playing with the placement of your decals. You can pin them up in various places to see how they will look before application. Large scenic decals tend to look better against walls with scarce furniture, while smaller decals can be placed anywhere. Don’t be afraid to mix different decal themes to make a unique design.
