Wall decals are a fun way to decorate kids’ rooms. You can create a look and a sense of style without a big commitment since you can always change out the decals. This is especially helpful in kids’ rooms since they grow and change so quickly.
We also love how wall decals personalize a space. You can pick the decals that bring out the uniqueness of your child and make his or her room one of a kind.
Here are 4 designer secrets about how to use wall decals like a decorating pro:
- Interior designers and decorators like to anchor decals by placing them above or around larger furniture pieces. Decals look better this way than just floating on a wall.
- Try spelling out your kid’s name above his or her bed. Designers also love creating monograms with a person’s initials. Another idea is to spell out an inspirational word or saying. Again, try to connect the letters to furniture or an architectural element in the room so that they are not just floating on the wall.
- Limit yourself to one or two decal styles with coordinating colors. Bigger decals are better than smaller ones. Less is definitely more when it comes to mixing different decals or lots of decals.
- Create an emphasis wall and group decals for maximum impact. You could paint this wall a darker color to make the decals stand out. If you are artistic, try creating a faux stage with paint on one wall.
Whether you are artistic or not, you can create a unique, one of a kind room for your child with wall decals. Give it a try. You won’t be let down.
