Wall Decals - Think Wall Art

Updated on April 8, 2013

Coincidentally I ordered some construction wall decals for my grandson’s bedroom then read Zazous’ hub “Stickers for the Wall - Paranormal Portal?”I got the feeling something was trying to tell me to write about wall decals.I must admit Zazous’ hub is hilarious and a really good read.You have to realize I am a wallpaper person.I even wrote a hub about removing wallpaper, but my husband is not a wallpaper person.Borders are really just small wallpaper you put across the top of your walls but decals are something else.

Decals adhere to your walls but can be removed without damage to your walls or paint. Now that’s not only an interesting concept but it works for the wallpaper lover and non-wallpaper lover alike, on and off without a hassle - what more could you ask for? You can add interest to a bland, blank wall and remove it when you get tired of it. One minute its there the next its not. This allows you to change the whole feel of the room with just a simple decal placement.

Wall decals come in all sizes and shapes.They cover just about any subject or genre you can possibly think about from wall decal quotes, romantic decals to nursery wall decals or sports wall decals and a huge variety in between. Let’s start with something cute and colorful for example, RoomMates SCROLL TREE PEEL & STICK WALL DECAL MEGAPACK.The tree itself is 68-inches wide by 58-inches tall..covers a lot of space but it’s still not wallpaper!It’s colorful and whimsical.It has “curly branches, brightly-colored flowers, and some friendly feathered friends.”If you’re into funky flowers you might like something like the FLOWER SPINDLES.They add color to any wall.

What if you’re looking for something more on the serious side? Of course the variety is endless and I’ve only picked a few samples to whet your appetite.Take for example PARISIAN SPRING BIRD IN TREE SILHOUETTE.It’s all black giving you the illusion of a silhouette.You can place it anywhere, set up the pieces any way you like and it is only $8.21.I forgot to mention that generally wall decals are inexpensive adding to their appeal.Another lovely silhouette-type is the SWIRL FLOWER FLORAL DESIGN.This one looks really nice added to corners in your room.If travel is your desire there’s an EIFFEL TOWER SILHOUETTE that’s sure to please.

How about something more inspirational?There are quotes galore!I chose one from Lil Wayne:

“I don’t think you’re beautiful, I think you’re beyond it.”Wouldn’t it be nice to look in the bathroom mirror and see this quote above or beneath it?Nice way to start your day.I must admit my favorite quote of all time is “Always Kiss Me Goodnight” and you can get that in a wall decal too!

If you have a musician or music lover in your house there’s a decal called MUSIC MEASURES/MUSIC IS MY LIFE.This one includes bars, notes, quotes….or there’s just notes if your get, obviously, MUSICAL NOTES.

What if you want to hang a picture but you’re not sure what to hang or you live in an apartment and don’t’ want to make permanent changes?You can get a wall decal and always remove it later without leaving holes.There’s a wall decal called MANHATTAN that includes three panoramic panels that look like pictures – each panel is 12x12 so you’re not taking up your entire wall.

Of course there are the children and grandchildren in your life.There are literally tons of choices for them.What little boy wouldn’t love MARVEL HEROES all over his wall, from The Thing to Wolverine?What about the trucks, buses, planes, etc. you get with TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES?You can get lots of movie decals, sports decals, dinosaur decals, you name it, they’re out there.For the little girls in your life there are DISNEY PRINCESSES, fairies, butterflies, castles, flowers, toy characters like My Little Pony, and so many more.

I found a really cool decal that could go in a child’s room or in your kitchen, it’s the DRY ERASE CALENDAR PEEL & STICK WALL DECAL and it comes with dry erase markers, what more could you ask for?

So, you didn’t know this stuff was out there?Don’t you want to decorate without the hassle of wallpaper?There are many companies on the Internet offering wall decals from Amazon to them out, you’ll be surprised at the really nice offerings you’ll find and you might wind up with a wall decal in your house!

      How true RHeat. Especially women who change their minds about decorating so often, I should know ;)

      I have a couple of wall decals in my home. Placed in strategic spots that compliment the decor, they really add to a theme. Great post!

      I totally agree Vellur. I've gotten several sets for my grandson; trucks and diggers, Monsters Inc., and now Minions. The nice thing is he can switch them to match his mood.

      Sujaya, I was thrilled when I first found them!

      Rebecca, I too love wallpaper but my husband doesn't because he's the one that has to hang them ;) You're welcome.

      These sound like some nice ideas to pretty up the walls in an easy way. I like wallpaper, but have never hung it, and fear that I would probably make a big mess. I will keep wall decals in mind. thanks!

      Wall Decals are a great way to decorate a wall, better than sticky wallpapers!! Great idea.

      How true writing online, and with wall art you can change it as often as you like.

      Wall decals can certainly be easy to use and so much easier to take down than wallpaper. I am a wallpaper fan too Mary. Glad you like my new Avatar! Good luck with your wallpaper.

      What a great idea! I put up wallpaper in every room in my old house, but it's about time to strip it down (it's been up for about 20 years), and replace it. I just might use wall decals instead. Thanks for the tip!

      I voted this UP , etc. and will share.

      Love your new avatar...I liked your old one, but this one is great, too.
