The walls of your home are an important place to showcase who you are. Beyond painting them in your favourite colour, you can do so in the form of what you hang on them—paintings, pictures, whatever you please. In recent years, it’s been common to see wall decals decorating the walls of many stylish homes, and why not?
They’re fun, beautiful, and there are so many styles to choose from that it wouldn’t be difficult to find a few that suit your personal style. They delight people of all ages, and they create a special “painted-on” look despite being a wall sticker! Are you ready to find out more on how to style these beauties? Read on!
Think About Your Wall Space
How much empty space you have on your wall right now is going to be the determining factor as to which wall decal you’ll be able to fit there without it looking too cramped. If you have a large wall space, you’ll have more freedom in what you’ll be able to display. Large wall stickers provide a grandiose feeling, while smaller ones add just the right amount of style to an otherwise bare wall.
Regardless of the size of the decal you want, it’s imperative that you measure your wall space to ensure that you won’t be getting something that’s too big for what’s available. Once you’ve determined how much space you have, it’ll be far easier to choose something that’s suitable for your needs.
Think About Permanence
The great thing about wall decals is that they’re so easy to use. There’s no need to got to too much effort since all you have to do is peel off the backing and stick it on where you’d like, squeegee into place, and voila! You have a wall makeover in under an hour. It’s important to have pretty spaces in your home because they do wonders for the mood and spirit, but sometimes you have to consider how permanent you’d need your stickers to be.
Semi-permanent decals can’t be reused, and are intended to be on your wall for longer periods of time. There are reusable wall stickers that can stick onto any surface, be it painted walls, bricks, or glass! There are washable decals that you can transfer from place to place. Think about what you need in terms of permanence and you should be good to go.
Here’s How to Style Them
Wall stickers are statement pieces. They can prompt conversation, and add plenty of life to an otherwise bare wall. How you style them is important to the impact that they’ll make in your home.
Quote decals are popular as there’s always going to be a quote that applies to your life in some way, and it’s nice to be reminded of it by simply looking at your wall. Quote stickers come in both large and small sizes, so there is a good variety you can pick up to decorate your walls with.
You can use quotes or other stand-out decals to define bare, white walls, and even use smaller decals to decorate the space around them. Alternatively, you could try to take wall stickers that all reflect things you love and turn your wall into a giant vision board!
A great way to style your decals is to select an accent colour that already exists in your room and choose a decal that matches. Not only will it liven up a boring wall and transform any room, but the pop of colour will draw the eyes towards it, and the matching colours will help your room look well-coordinated and put together.
Another tip that will help you with your wall decals is to place the more intricate designs on light-colored walls, especially if the room is minimalist in style and furnishings. It’s a surefire way to create a great statement while keeping the wide-open space of your room intact.
Lastly, only pick out stickers that go with your personal style. Your home is yours to style as you please, so it’s important that you love what you see in it. Really think about a purchase before you make it ensuring that you really want it and that it’s earned its rightful place inside your home. This applies to all your furnishings, not just wall decals!
