Black on White – how to decorate with wall decals
Wall Decals, also known as wall tattoos are a great alternative for wall murals. They are easy to use and extremely decorative – just stick them to wall in a visible location to give the room a new face. And although choosing a proper decal seems banal, I can assure you that the installation process is much simpler than an appropriate selection of the motif and size that would match the interior. With this type of decoration both balance and a little touch of madness are important – and it all depends on the context.
How to install a wall decal?
You will learn how to do this from our detailed manual available here. In short: the installation is based on an appropriate balancing between the decal’s adhesive surface and the wall, with the concurrent slow peeling off the backing paper and manipulating the so-called flat squeegee, a plastic spatula with a felt finish, which serves to facilitate smoothing the sticker. Finally, what remains is to press once again the decal to the wall’s surface, and to remove the protective paper from the printed side of the decal. Wall decal will look appealingly if only we demonstrate a bit of effort in the installation process. Slowly smooth the wall decal’s surface so as to avoid the very first of all unwanted air bubbles (pierce those little ones, if they already arised, with a thin needle – a small hole won’t be visible!).
What about selecting the right motif?
Note that wall decals can be made only with vector files available in our database. These are graphic files, as opposed to raster files, for example photos, don’t lose their quality when changing their size. Vector image usually has smooth contours, which allow it to be cut out the white background. Well, this is important too: while looking for a wall decal on our website, pick the option “with a white background”.
Choosing the right size
Once you’re done with the search, keep in mind that the size of diverse elements on the image depends on the number of elements; their size will be proportional to the size of the entire decal that you choose. Later on, several elements can then be arranged in any configuration on the wall.
Silhouettes Wall Decals
Silhouettes or outlines of characters – are actually “shadows” pretending to be human forms, animals, and even producing an illusion of various objects…
Flowers & Ornaments
Black silhouettes of flowers, subtle and eye-catching are the most popular choice. Same with the ornaments – their geometric structure is made for wall decals.
Texts in a form of wall decals (not just black) will look like sketched on the wall. Life mottos, welcome texts or information texts – stick it and don’t worry it will detach from the wall!
Kitchen is a place where it is better not to clutter up the wall with paintings. Minimalist and aesthetic wall decals prove themselves in the role of inconspicuous (but still remarkable) decoration.
If you fancy surprising solutions, I would recommend you to become a magician and entertain yourself by blurring the boundary between reality and illusion. It is easy – just place the wall decals in some unexpected places.
