One of the biggest changes you can make while decorating your home is wall decor. And while most people think of changing their wall color and hanging a few paintings or photos, an even more dramatic update can be made with today's removable wall decals, stickers, and wall murals.
Wall sticker popularity has exploded in the last five years. More and more companies are manufacturing these quality, laser-printed works of wall art. Best of all, most wall decals use what is now called 'peel and stick' technology. This means no more glue or messy wallpaper. Decals come affixed to easy-peel backings; you just peel the sticker off and smooth it right onto the wall of your choice. And even better? Stickers are also repositionable, meaning you can change your mind by simply peeling the sticker back and putting it in a different place or position.
Home wall decals come in a variety of styles. Most popular are wall words, sayings, or phrases. These can be as simple as 'Welcome to our Home' or as complex as an entire addage or saying. You can even get custom-cut wall decals in a variety of fonts and colors that say whatever you want. Display your family name or monogram, or a child's name for their bedroom or playroom.
Wall trees, wall windows, and even full-length wall murals can bring nature inside. Removable decals come in all sorts of natural foilage, trees, branches, and even full-size outdoor scenes that can totally gel with your interior decor. It's fun to decorate your living room or kitchen with this type of natural theme, and you can choose to do a little (a few peel-and-stick leaves or branches) or a lot (a full-length wall tree, bamboo forest, or even a seascape wall mural).
As for children, there are an almost endless variety of decals and murals with which to decorate. From baby's nursery to full-grown teenagers, boys and girls wall stickers come in every shape, size, color, and theme. Girls popular styles include princess decals, butterflies, flowers, horses, dancer and ballerina-themed wall decor. Boys choices range from dinosaurs to superheroes, pirates, trucks, vehicles, and space murals that make you feel as if you're looking out through a porthole into outer space itself.
Disney-themed stickers are available for any popular Disney or Pixar movie or TV show. From Princesses and Tinker Bell to Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Winnie the Pooh, Cars the Movie, Mickey/Minnie Mouse... the list goes on and on. Television decals include Spongebob Squarepants, Ben-10, Dora the Explorer, Diego, and the all-time children's favorite: Sesame Street.
Finally, holiday decorating becomes a whole lot easier with Halloween, Easter, and Christmas themed wall stickers. You can build-your-own snowman, or decorate with peel-and-stick glitter snowflakes. And be sure to save the backing material, because when the holiday's over? Just peel and replace them on the backing sheet to be brought out and reused year after year.
Before redesigning or decorating your room, consider adding a wall mural or decal for added flair and flavor. You can make instant and dramatic changes to any room in your home with very little effort, and for a fraction of the cost of a painted artistic mural.
