How To Install Decals
Wall decals are fun decorative cutouts that can be used to change the look of any room of the home. Decals are typically made out of vinyl or a form of laminate with adhesive on the back. There are great to give a boring wall or space a mini-renovation. Installation is super easy and does not require long hours of work to get a new look in your home!
Some tips on choosing a decal for your room:
- Think about the space! What size of room or wall you want to decorate? You don’t want to order a large wall decal for a small space, make sure to measure your wall prior to your purchase.
- Quote decals are very popular and are great for both small and large spaces. You can use them in any room, let say your kitchen, bedroom or bathroom. A funny quote or an inspirational decal can be great for adding some personal touch in your room!
How to apply a wall decal:
Step 1: Clean the surface of the wall by wiping away any dirt or dust using a damp cloth or sponge. Make sure the wall is dry before you begin to apply the decal.
Step 2: Place the decal in the desired location with the vinyl against the wall and the paper backing facing you. If necessary, a level can be used to ensure the decal is even.
Step 3: Smooth the surface and eliminate any air bubbles with a squeegee. Start at the top of the decal and work your way down. Repeat twice to ensure the decal is free of air bubbles and is securely adhered to the wall. If you have bubbles, take a needle to bore them.
Step 4: Carefully peel the paper backing from the decal. To do this, you'll want to start at one of the top corners and slowly peel back at a 45-degree angle until it's all removed.
And, it's done! Enjoy the new look.
