Getting Creative with Modern Wall Stickers

Wall decals are the latest craze in home decor that is popping up on walls everywhere and why shouldn’t they? They are inexpensive, easily installed, readily removed or even moved in some cases. They equally are useful for adding some flash to apartments and dorm rooms as they are for the home, office and commercial uses. Although they vary a bit by brand, most of these funky wall stickers are made soft matte vinyl that adheres to painted walls, glass, tiles and wallpaper as long as it is not too rough.

There are many styles available out there, designs for kids, sports fans, artists and nature lovers but today we are focusing on some cool wall decals with a modern, retro sensibility that can easily add some style to your domicile!

It comes in ton of colors like black, white grey and multiple shades of green, red, blue, orange, purple and even metallic colors. A word of warning though, the thin lines can make the larger sized a bit more challenging to install so be careful and take your time this type of “Wall Tattoo” is not the kind you can remove and re-place. I would practice on some smaller decals until you get the hang of it. Available from Wallspirit Wall Decals.
