Wall decals can be made with many different colors and designs. Some of them depict logos for sports teams, while other depict the players themselves. Still others contain motivational sayings or the words from a family crest. What you decide to put on a wall decal in your home is largely up to you. When you are decorating, however, there are a few things that you want to keep in mind to make sure that you are fully happy with the end result.
Check The Surface
You want to make sure that the decal will not ruin the surface that you are applying it to. With most standard house paints, it will be completely fine. The decal will be able to go on and come off with ease. You do want to make sure that this is the case before you put it up, however, to avoid an expensive mistake. If you have a unique type of wall, make sure that the decal will work with it before you hang it up.
Consider The Colors
Before putting up a decal, make sure that it will work with the color scheme of the rest of your home. If you want to hang up the logo of your favorite sports team, which is purple and yellow, it will not look good if the rest of your house is trimmed in colors that do not match. This is not to say that you should repaint the whole house to match the decorations, but you should perhaps consider a different room, one with more neutral colors.
Consider The Placement
You also just want to think about what the decal will look like on a day-to-day basis. Hanging the logo from the sports team in your living room may be what you want to do because you are excited about it. However, it would probably look better in a room that is dedicated to that team, a room that includes banners, jerseys, and other pieces of team-related material. You want to put it somewhere that it will fit in and add to the look of the home.
A Few Quick Tips
There are a few other things that you should do before hanging up any decal.
1. Check the spelling. If you had the decal custom made, make sure that you spelled all of the words right before you put it up.
2. Confer with others. While these can be taken down rather easily, you want to make sure that anyone else who is living in the home agrees with having the decal where you want to put it.
3. Get someone to help. Some wall decorations can be very large and are hard to put up on your own.
