5 Easy Ways to Express Yourself with Wall Decals
Heading to college for the first time can be an exciting transition. Living in a dorm room gives you freedom to make more of your own choices and the independence to express yourself in bold and creative ways. One way to do this is with your dorm room. While schools often allow you some freedom in personalizing the room, most have limitations on permanent changes to the walls or furniture such as paint or nail holes. For students navigating these rules, vinyl covered wall decals provide a versatile solution. From a tree wall decal to a sports mascot, decals can be placed in seconds and provide accents that look like hand painted works of art. When the school year is finished, they are easily removed, leaving the walls free of damage or paint chips. There are a multitude of wall decal choices so the décor options are as limitless as your imagination. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Show Some Spirit
No matter what your interest is, there is a way to express it with a wall decal. Choose the mascot of your favorite sports team and accent it with borders in the team’s colors. Looking to show some school spirit? Spell out the school name and choose additional pieces that reflect the school’s colors and mascot. Use decals to let your friends know your taste in music or movies.
Bring the Outdoors In
If you love spending time outdoors surrounded by the vibrant colors of nature, why not bring your favorite parts to your dorm room? This way you can enjoy the orange leaves of fall or the lush flowers of spring all year round. Use a tree wall decal as a centerpiece and redecorate it with the appropriate pieces as the seasons change. Cover your ceiling with star decals, arranging them in the shape of actual constellations.
Coordinate with Other Décor
Perhaps you already have a theme in mind for your dorm room. Art prints, movie posters or a particular color scheme are all effective ways to personalize your space. Wall decals can serve as accent pieces to enhance the decorative elements you already have. Choose a graceful border to complement classical art prints. Highlight colors and themes by installing decals that utilize your favorite patterns and designs.
Create a Removable Mural
Some wall decals are large enough to cover a significant part of a wall. Create your own work of art by using these wall decals to install your own mural. A funky silhouette tree wall decal or a flock of birds are just a few examples of scenes that could become the centerpiece of your dorm room.
Use decals to continually remind you of the wisdom and motivation of your favorite quotes. Quote decals are created with a script that emphasizes the spirit of the quote. Share the words that have inspired you or discover some new ones that will help shape your life.
