What is the best material for wall decals?

Before choosing a wall decal's design, it is important to consider its material. The material determines whether the wall decal is of good quality or not.

  • Wall decals with labels such as VOC-free, lead-free, and Phthalate free are safe to place in nursery rooms or children's rooms since they are made of safe materials.
  • To prevent your walls from getting damaged by wall decals, try to avoid glossy or outdoor vinyl materials. Wall decals made of these materials have a stronger adhesive.
  • Most wall decals are made of PVC-vinyl, and they're considered the best material because of their durability.
  • Choose a wall decal with a residue-free adhesive to make sure your walls remain intact after its removal.

How to pick a wall decal based on your interior decor?

There are various ways to choose a wall decal for your interior. One method involves picking a wall decal based on an interior's theme or inspiration piece.

  • There are certain items and furniture that could completely inspire the design of an entire area. Inspiration pieces could be an instrument such as a grand piano or even your chic sofa. Use these decor items to determine the room's color scheme. It is preferable to narrow down the color scheme to three to four colors. For instance, a room with sky blue curtains, white walls, and a sand-colored bed frame would look seamless with a sky blue wall decal.

  • You can easily pick the wall decal based on the room's color scheme. This is a great way to experiment with different patterns and solids.

  • If your wall decal is of a new color, try to add at least two other decor items in the same color for a cohesive interior.

  • If the room is composed of various decor pieces in different colors, try to tone it done by choosing a white wall decal.

  • Choose colorful and fun stickers to bring liveliness and fun to the room. For example, if your child has a green duvet and chair, you can spice it up by adding a large family tree wall decal with green leaves.

  • If your living room has neutral-toned furniture, jazz it up with bright wall decals, such as cherry blossoms to add a touch of nature.

How to choose the wall decal's size?

  • Take precise measurements of the wall you want to cover to avoid replacements and refunds.

  • The wall decal's size should depend on the size of the area. Wide empty walls are suitable for large wall decals and smaller wall surfaces would require medium to small-sized decals.

  • Large wall decals are typically the centerpiece of the room.

  • If the wall surface is small and vertical, you may go for a tall and thin decal. If the available surface is horizontal, opt for a long and slim one.
