Spring cleaning complete I’m at the stage where I want to add large wall art to my living space. Unfortunately my interior tastes change like the wind so I am hesitant to spend huge amounts of money on paint or wallpaper, especially when the thought of installing (attempting!) wallpaper fills me with dread – even when it’s only a feature wall!
It seems I’m not the only one who has looked for alternative decorating tools. The wall decal trend continues to grow in popularity and so does the size of wall stickers. You can now buy Large wall stickers and XL wall stickers, many measuring over a metre high, with enough decals to fill a whole wall. With so many designs and variations out there, it’s not surprising people are using giant wall stickers as the affordable and temporary way to transform their sitting rooms, bedrooms, kitchens and even bathrooms.
Once only suitable for children’s spaces wall stickers have now been elevated to high design and described as sensational with the ability to enliven any room! Word quotes, chalkboard decals, mirror wall stickers, XL tree designs, Marvel comic book posters, the list is endless.
For renters, over-sized wall decals are a great way to add quick bursts of colour and personality without putting a hole in the wall and having to repaint on move out day. They are a safe decoration choice as they don’t leave marks or residue and can be easily installed using the ‘peel and stick’ method. Many people choose to create a feature wall with giant wall decals. It can be done in bold colours and patterns and doesn’t make a room seem too over-powered.
For parents and children, re-positionable wall stickers are ingenious as they are a fun way to update a room with little expense. Children grow up fast and change their style often so large wall stickers make perfect sense and are easily changeable as a child’s tastes alter
I am all for wall stickers getting bigger as it is so much cheaper (and less permanent!) than wallpaper and they do make charming wall accents. The most creative ideas don’t necessarily have to be the most expensive. Sometimes a lick of paint and one large wall decal is all it takes!
