It`s easy to update living areas by putting a fresh coat of paint on your walls and paint doesn`t have to be just a solid color anymore. There are also all kinds of faux decorating techniques you can try such as sponging, ragging, faux marble, faux wood, faux animal prints, just to name a few. Hand painting a wall mural or a faux scene is another creative wall decorating idea to add originality and interest to your walls.

I`ve seen some great stencils that look like rock walls with vines and ivy. If you are the least bit creative, then stencils will allow you to exercise that creativity to make a piece of wall art that you can enjoy every day as well as show off to your guests. Wall murals and stencils go with a variety of decorating themes including the old world, shabby chic, french country, and even some contemporary styles.

Some are reusable and some are not, all depending on the materials that they are made from. Some stickers have laminate overlays on them to prevent the stickers from being accidentally torn. Some manufacturers offer pre-cut ones that are peel-offs, making them easier to stick to wall surfaces.

A hidden layer of dust will make your wall decals fall off of the wall long before you are ready to redecorate. Wash the walls with warm water and let them dry completely. You can use a fan to speed up this process, but don`t get in a hurry. Doing so can ruin your expensive wall decals.

Well, this idea evolved as a combined result of the non-traditional ways of wall decorations. Earlier people got them painted in order to give them a bright appearance and in the name of decoration they used framed paintings and mirrors. It was the furnishings that received more attention. But things changed as the designers came up with new ideas of decorations and they produced some really good decorative pieces of stuff.

Another fun and easy item to use as wall art that can be found at many yard sales, thrift stores, junkyards, and antique stores are old windows and doors. Finding a vintage window can be an interesting way to add an old-world feel to any room. Using a door on a large wall can add something unexpected to the room. It`s fun to hunt around for cool and interesting doors and windows. Whatever your style, you can find something to make the room your own with decorative wall decor.

Displaying wall art in your home is meant to tell a story about you and what you like. It should add quality and enjoyment to your life.

Many people today even decorate a portion of the wall with tile. When it comes to your walls, think paint, stencils, wall murals, tapestries, tile, mirrors, wall sconces, and more! Unlike decades ago, decorating your walls is now an exciting and challenging task.

Most decals are sold online and size and quality can be deceiving. Make sure that you read the fine print page for the size and material used. They should be removable and even better if re-positionable. Also, cheaper decals have a paper-like quality, usually have clear plastic around the design, or are printed on white background. They can appear shiny and once placed on a wall can appear cheap or sticker like in quality. The higher quality decals are slightly more expensive but well worth the money. There are vinyl decals that are usually done in the color of your choice and there are decals made of thin, matte material with high-resolution printing. Once put up on a wall they blend and are a beautiful addition to your space. In addition, they won`t tear if you move them around until you have it just right.

When you are excited about redecorating, it can be tempting to get it all done at once. But if you don`t allow the paint to ”cure” for about a month after painting, you increase the chances of damaging the paint when you try to remove the decals later. The package may say that the decals will lift off easily, but allowing the paint to cure will increase the likelihood of this occurring.
