  • A beautiful, inexpensive feature wall with minimal effort

  • A home with more character
  • An alternative to wallpaper
  • The freedom to have absolutely minimal furniture

That being said, there are are many kinds of wall decals in the market and choosing them properly might make or break your home’s theme.


Types of wall decals

Vinyl (most common)

By far, vinyl decals are the most commonly used and differ in quality within their same category. There are cheaper vinyl decals, while there are higher quality, reusable decals. Popular brands to look out are: 3M, Avery, MACtac.

Fabric (most re-appliable)

Fabric decals are the most forgivable because they are sturdier and are less prone to bubbles upon application.


The least popular of them all, plastic decals come inexpensive, but are the most customisable. Generally not recommended, so watch out when you’re buying!
