What should be kept in mind while applying wall decals?


A wall decal, also called by different names like wall stickers, wall tattoo, or wall vinyl, is a vinyl sticker that is affixed to a wall or some other even surface in home additions. Wall decals, featuring words, pictures and designs, can range from simple wall borders and cut outs to more complex murals covering entire walls.

Though vinyl decals were originally used only for sign making, they have been added to interior decorators portfolios and have also become well known as a DIY home decorating option in recent times.


Designs can be customised according to your wishes and requirements so that you can indulge in making your imaginations real within the four walls of your living area. Wall decals can be used in various spheres of home additions: living rooms, bedrooms, kitchen, bathrooms, false ceilings, decorating cupboards and every possible space in the house, and also in the office.

What adds to the sheer awesomeness of wall decals is that it can be on multiple surfaces- walls, glass, tiles, laminates, veneer.

It has been found that in investing in home additions, the living room of the house has been experimented with the most with multiple themes. Nature stands out amongst them. Various motifs, abstract themes, designs based on landscapes, sports-themed decals are also counted in as people’s favourites.

However, wall decals are a complete NO-NO for those houses which suffer from the issues of water leakage and water seepage, especially during the monsoon season. Most vinyl decals are not reusable. The adhesive used on the rear enables them wall decals to be repositioned a couple of times before the adhesive wears out. Moreover, due to moisture, the decals will peel out easily as the glue gets weakened. So, unless you want your wall paint peeling off along with the wall decals, be sure to get the water leakage issue repaired before applying that wall decal you have wanted to put in your home additions bucket for oh-so-long.
