Spring cleaning complete
I’m at the stage where I want to decorate and add some focal wall art to my living space. Unfortunately my interior tastes change like the wind so I am hesitant to use huge amounts of money on paint or wallpaper, especially when the thought of installing (attempting!) wallpaper fills me with dread – already when it’s only a characterize wall!
It seems I’m not the only one who has looked for different decorating tools. The wall decal trend continues to grow in popularity and so does the size of wall stickers. You can now buy large and XL wall stickers, many measuring over a metre high, with enough elements to fill a whole wall. With so many designs and variations out there, it’s not surprising people are using wall decoration as the affordable and permanent way to transform their sitting rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, dining rooms and already bathrooms and shop windows!
Once only appropriate for children’s spaces re-positionable decals have now been elevated to high design and described as sensational with the ability to enliven any room in minutes! information quotes, chalkboard decals, mirror wall stickers, XL tree designs, surprise comic book posters, 3D and glow in the dark decorations, the list is truly endless.
For renters, over-sized wall decals are a great way to add quick bursts of colour and personality without putting a hole in the wall and having to repaint on move out day. They are a safe decoration choice as they don’t leave marks or residue and can be easily installed using the ‘peel and stick’ method. Many people choose to create a characterize wall with wall decals. It can be done in bold colours and patterns and doesn’t make a room seem too over-powered. In fact many wall stickers are of such high-quality they look painted on.
For parents and children, re-positionable wall stickers are clever as they are a fun way to update a room with little expense. Children grow up fast and change their style often so large wall stickers make perfect sense and are easily changeable as a child’s tastes alter.
I am all for wall stickers getting bigger as it is so much cheaper (and less long-lasting!) than wallpaper and they do make charming wall accents. The most creative ideas don’t necessarily have to be the most expensive. Sometimes a lick of paint and one wall decal is all it takes!
