Vinyl Decal Ideas

 Green room with white vinyl decals.

Vinyl decals have come a long way towards embracing modern trend and design and have become an ideal decorating tool for amping up the decor of your home or office. Modern decals are exciting! With a range of patterns and colours, vinyl decals can be used anywhere you deem fit to add personality and a pop of visual interest.




Byrdie Graphics has an Etsy store filled with modern designs you can plaster all over the place. And courtesy of Natalie, Byrdie Graphics is offering DOJ readers a 15% discount on the decals in their store! Thanks Natalie!

Add one large decal to spice up an entry way, combine a series of decals to create a vignette over your sofa or mantel or treat an entire wall to a decal makeover. Another idea is to create a panel of decals to bridge the space between two rooms. The benefits of decals, you might ask? Vinyl decals are self-adhesive and peel right off the wall when you are finished with them. This means you can change them when you move, for the season or on a whim. It is also a great way to add detail to your home when renting a space.




I would love to use decals in a nursery, because you can change them as your child grows without having to repaint or stencil large areas of the room. Change out the old decals with some new ones when the time comes. Tree forms are a popular choice for kid’s rooms, but you can look for other images or have one custom designed according to your child’s interests.



You can also use vinyl decals to give old furniture a new lease on life. A headboard, the seat of an old wooden chair, an armoire, a dresser, and a coffee table would all do well with a decal or two strategically placed. I think the damask and Morroccan style patterns would be a fun addition to white kitchen cabinets. Where will you place the decals?
