We all enjoy making the place we spend the most of our time in feel homey. Changing up décor not only gives a new and fresh look to your place but also makes you feel better. Providing a fresh and modern look to the home or office usually requires making changes to furniture, paintings, etc. Makeovers for walls are not usually considered when revamping a space. But they should! The wall is a canvas with room for expression and can be one of the least expensive changes you can make to a room by using wall decals. They’re also great when it comes to redecorating as they can be removed easily and without damage.
Wall decals add a layer of detail. They can be available in custom cut-outs, wall borders, murals, and words or sayings. Unlike paintings or murals (which take a lot of planning, money, and time) these can be installed easily and quickly. If you are a bit worried or confused to make your wall decals an essential part of your design plan, then don’t worry! In this blog we will go over some tips on how to make them the focal point in your space.
How to Start?
1: Decide Where it Should Go
The first thing you need to do is to decide where to use wall decals on your walls. Look at examples online of different designs and where they are placed. Of course, it’s one thing to see a design, it’s another to simply place it on a wall and make it look good. When you have a good idea in mind of what you’re looking for, map out on your walls where the decals should go to best utilize the space. If you want to choose a single wall, it’s best to go with something that will stand out and bring the eyes to that spot in the room. If you want to decorate more than one wall, try going with more simplistic or repetitive designs to not make the room look busy. By doing this your wall decals become a complimentary piece or a statement piece to your space, whichever you want.
2: Look for Inspiration
Once you know where you’ll be placing your wall decal, the next step is to take some inspiration for what you want. It’s good to keep in mind what purpose the room will be serving you. A den serves a different purpose than a dining room and it should reflect that. Also having a good idea of what will compliment your room’s size and colors is ideal to ensure that it doesn’t clash and looks clean. For inspiration, look at websites like Pinterest to see what you could do with your wall decals. Look at websites that have decals and make your own personal inspiration board to determine what you want and what will look best.
3: Get Samples
If you’ve found what’s inspired you and will make your room look great, next you should look at getting samples of the decals you want. It’s an essential step because the design and colors of the wall decal may not look the same on your wall as it does on the screen. It’s better to not take bold risks when choosing bold decorations. Look for wall decal designers that offer free samples so you can get an idea of how the decal will apply to the wall and how it will look. You want your decals to stand out in a good way, bringing attention to the room and complementing its theme. It should not clash or be distracting. It should also look good to you, as this will be your space it goes in. Once you have determined how the samples will be placed and if you like the look of it, all that’s left is to apply the official wall decal when it arrives.
Whether you’re redecorating a bedroom, a den, an office, or the living room, making wall decals the centerpiece of your space is easy.
