Everyone loves to put something pretty on their walls. One of the best ways to improve the décor of your home is by doing a little decorating on your walls. Now there are many ways to do this, you could decorate the interior of your home with artwork. Your interior décor could consist of beautiful tiling or mosaic. Your wall décor could be made up of beautifully chosen paints, wall papers, murals or stencilling.
But all of these options take time and effort! Now we have a new option for residential interior décor: the wall decal! But what are wall decals I hear you ask? Well, commercial businesses have been using them for years for signage. Decals are effectively just vinyl stickers! Yes, that’s right, vinyl stickers!
Where we used to put vinyl stickers on the sides of cars and on sign boards, now some clever folk have realised how great they would be for interior décor! And wall decals are the most easy and simple form of wall décor too! All you have to do is peel and stick, or get someone to peel and stick for you! No more of the mess and fuss that comes with the usual interior design materials like paint or tile!
The range of different wall decals you can now get is unbelievable, providing you with even more wall décor ideas than ever before! You can choose from small little accent images to entire walls to create the interior design of your choice! You can go for everything from very detailed and intricate designs, shapes and patterns, so simple yet stunning styles and silhouettes. Basically anything you desire for the design and décor of your home you can achieve with wall decals instead of the usual painting products used for interior design!
But what on earth should you choose? There are so many wall decal ideas and images to choose from, where on earth do you start? Well, let’s think about the hottest trends for wall decals as they relate to the hot design and décor trends right now!
One of the hottest design and décor trends right now, and a super hot wall decal idea, is to use simple black line drawings or silhouettes! Whether you go for silhouettes of buildings, animals, people or flowers is entirely up to you, it’s the black and white, or whatever colour your wall is, concept that is such a huge trend at the moment! My favourite is the birds on the wire type image!
Speaking of birds, this is another hot wall decal idea, and one that fits with design and décor trends for contemporary homes. Birds are hot this season, especially silhouettes of sparrows? Birds in cages are also very trendy and these work especially well in adding just a little something fun to your wall décor.Another very hot wall decal idea is to use trees. There has been a huge drive of late in the design and décor arenas to reconnect with nature and bringing natural images into the home is one way of doing this. So tree decals are a hot wall decal idea. Pick a single tree or a silhouetted forest. Go for a realistic image or a fun stylised shape. It doesn’t matter as long as you have a tree!
Text is also very popular at the moment, so any wall decal where you have used text is a great idea. Whether you put a simple message in an opportune place, or put your favourite poem on your favourite wall, or even if it is as simple as a single word that is important or beautiful to you, text wall decals are a fabulous idea!
