For many years the term “wall decal” conjured up visions of Winne the Pooh on a child’s bedroom wall. Or maybe the grape vines that wound around your Grandmother’s kitchen. Fortunately, the wall decals available today are much more sophisticated and can actually be considered art for your home.
If your design style is modern and contemporary you may enjoy using blown up decals that show the likeness of pop icons such as Marilyn Monroe or James Dean. They offer a hip and modern look to a family room, teenager’s bedroom or a game room. These decals are a great substitute for “regular” wall art such as oil paintings or framed posters.
The decals or stickers that were available in the past were often difficult to use. Either they did not adhere to the wall properly or they stuck so well it was tough to remove them without damaging the wall. Today’s decals are more user friendly. They can be applied to walls painted in satin or gloss paint. You can even apply them to windows or mirrors if you so desire. One thing to remember, if your walls have been recently painted it is best to wait four weeks to allow the paint to fully cure before applying the decals.
With wall decals, your artwork can change as often as your tastes change. They offer a fun, portable and affordable alternative to more traditional art. In an instant you can add a touch of glamour, humor or sophistication to any room in your home at an affordable price.
