Decorating with wall decals can be a fun and easy way to add design and visual interest to almost any room in your home. However, they can often be especially useful when decorating a bedroom. Whether you want to add fun cartoon characters to a child's room, funky floral designs to a teenage girl's room, eye-catching sports motifs to a teenage boy's room, or trendy designs to your own room, you'll be able to find wall decals to make the job easy. They are easy to apply, and some are even designed so that they can be removed and repositioned. If you've never tried using them before, here are a few fun decorating with decal bedroom ideas to help get you started.
Storybook Charm in a Child's Room
Children often enjoy having their rooms decorated with their favorite cartoon or storybook characters. Although there are certainly wallpaper choices that include these patterns, you might not enjoy the thought of wallpapering the entire room. Also, children's tastes and interests can change quite rapidly, which means that the wallpaper you put up today might need to be taken down next year. By utilizing wall decals, you'll be able to add the design features your child loves, without all the fuss and permanence of wallpaper. Try adding a few cartoon character decals, or perhaps a fun decal border around the room. When his or her interests change, just remove the decals and redecorate.
Fun and Funky Teenage Designs
Teenagers often have a preference for fun bedroom designs, making wall decals the perfect decorating choice. Try using large colorful floral decals for a funky "mod" look your teenage girl will love. Or, choose word decals, allowing your teen to express her thoughts on her bedroom walls. There are also plenty of colorful wall decals available in sports motifs, which could satisfy a teenage boy's desire to decorate his room to match his favorite sports team. Rugged camouflage decal patterns or outdoorsy designs can also be popular choices for teenage boys. If your teen changes his or her interests next month, removing the decals so that you can redecorate is a simple task.
Wall Decals for "Grownups"
Although decorating with wall decals can be a great idea for a child or teen's room, there's no reason to let the kids have all the fun. Wall decals can work equally well for your own bedroom, allowing you to add interesting design features without the work of hanging wallpaper. Wall decals can be used to simulate the look of hand-painted designs on the wall, such as adding a beautiful floral border, fleur-de-lis patterns, or even a mural design depicting an outdoor scene. Some wall decals even come in sheets, allowing you to simulate the look of wallpaper. Wall decals can also be used to easily create a border around the top of the room, or at chair rail height. Depending on the decals you choose, you can add a fun colorful look, romantic touches, or sleek modern designs to your bedroom walls.
