There are plenty of ways to amp up the style level of your walls, including wallpaper, vibrant paint colors, and artwork. If you’re looking for an original way to decorate your walls, decals are a great way to go. Here we’ll look at different ways that decals can be used to create unique, beautiful spaces.
What is a decal?
A decal is a pre-printed, colored transfer paper similar to a sticker that is used to create original designs on walls, floors, ceilings, windows, doors, and even furniture to add a unique and personal touch to your rooms. Decals are cost effective, easy to apply, and can quickly transform a space.
Creative decals for each room
Nurseries are one of the most popular spaces to use decals as you can get really creative, using storybook images, alphabets, animals, or numbers. You can even integrate your decals with shelving like this:
