There's no better place to begin your wall decal journey than by considering colour scheme. Everybody knows that the number one rule of interior design is the effective pairing of colours, but there's more than one way in which two colours can be matched.
You may wish to opt for a monochromatic pairing. That is, two different shades of the same colour, such as coral pink against a deep scarlet backdrop. Or, you could opt for contrasting colours (these that sit opposite each other on the colour wheel) which have a more visually striking result. Whether this is appropriate or not will depend on their placement and your tastes!
If your room is a bit of a blank canvas and has no existing colour scheme, why not use your new wall decal to establish one? Calm, neutral tones such as grey or marine blue work particularly well in the living room, while light, fresh colours such as yellow and white look great in the kitchen or bathroom.
Why not give your walls a fresh coat of paint before you get started?
While there are wall decals out there that'll fit equally well in pretty much any room, there are others, which feature quite distinct designs, that work significantly better in certain rooms.
To understand what we mean, take a look at some of the examples in our top 10 below: the Moroccan-style design, for example, works particularly well in the kitchen because its square decals mimic kitchen tiles. So, too, does the lemon design for the freshness that its yellow colour inspires – and the fact it features a food item!
On the other hand, patterns such as polka dots might look rather odd in the kitchen, working better in a cosy room such as the bedroom where you're free to get a little more creative with your design choices.

Wall decals come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and this means that sticker quantities differ considerably between designs – you may, for example, find yourself choosing between one huge sticker and several hundred smaller ones.
It's always helpful to know exactly what you'll be working with, as sticker quantity can drastically alter the effect your wall decal (or decals) will have. Large, single stickers make great statement pieces, especially if applied to a living room or bedroom wall.
Higher quantities of smaller stickers will give you more creative freedom . You could choose to cluster them together on a single feature wall, or spread them throughout the room produce a patterned or tiled effect.

Once you've decided whether you prefer the look of one or several wall decals, the next step is to check the dimensions to ensure that they're of an appropriate size for your home.
In the case of a single sticker, you'll want to strike the perfect balance with a decal that is large enough to attract attention but not so large that it overwhelms the room. Again, just use the dimensions, perhaps while putting markers on the wall, to help you work this out.
Similar rules apply when using several smaller decals, though this time you'll want to ensure that their size will allow you to create the desired effect, whether that's arranging several together over your sofa or bed or spreading them across the room.

There are numerous well-known benefits to installing mirrors or reflective surfaces in your living space. Amongst other things, they can increase the amount of light in a room and create the illusion of more space.
This set of round reflective wall decals, then, will make a welcome addition to any home but particularly those with smaller rooms or without a lot of natural light. Variously sized, they can be placed in a variety of positions around a room. It's not often you find a wall decal that's both beautiful and practical, but this is surely it!
Cherry blossoms are highly symbolic among many Eastern cultures, representing renewal and the fleeting nature of life. Once blossomed, their flowers endure for only two weeks before falling, but with this wall sticker, you'll be able to enjoy them all year round.
Even outside of their symbolism, these cherry blossom decals make a fantastic addition to any wall or even on a window, with a mesmerising green and pink colour palette and a design that extends enchantingly throughout the room.
When life gives you lemons, why not use them to decorate your kitchen walls? It's scientifically proven that the citrusy smell of a freshly cut lemon can lift our mood, and we believe the sight of one can do the same.
Featuring a summery combination of yellow and green, as well as a design that varies between single lemons and lemon pairs, these decals would look great in pretty much any room in the house. However, we believe they'd work particularly well in the kitchen – the room where lemons are most likely to be found!
There's surely no better way of livening up your living space than by adorning the walls with an image of the entire world. Large and in impressive detail, this map is sure to introduce a touch of exoticism and sophistication to your home.
We're particular fans of the way that, rather than opting for the oranges and yellows traditionally associated with maps, this decal instead utilises a monochromatic black colour scheme. Particularly in combination with the image itself, the hue invites a deep contemplation that would be perfect for an office or study space.
Associated with the summer months in everything from their appearance to their name, sunflowers are perhaps the most optimistic and cheerful plant in existence. This, we feel, makes them perfect candidates for decorating your wall with.
Not only will they lift your mood, but their mixture of natural greens and bright vivid yellows are sure to brighten up whatever room you place them in. Sunflowers might only bloom in the summer, but these wall decals are perfect all year round.
We all know the benefits that time spent around wildlife and nature can bring, so why not welcome it into your home in decal form? Whether you're a keen bird spotter or not, this collection of some of our island's most beautiful birds is sure to brighten your walls.
Featuring an eclectic selection from the robin to the blue tit to the chaffinch, what's immediately striking about these decals is just how colourful some of our feathered friends are. Being small in their individual size, it can be difficult to know where to place them, but we guarantee you'll have a whale of a time perching them upon pieces of furniture!
Wall decals are an effective way of instantly brightening up a room, but they're often quite restrictive, coming in predetermined squares that must be fitted together in a certain way. However, that's not the case with these Dalmatian spot decals – rather than coming in a series of squares, each spot can be positioned separately.
The design is quite striking and certainly won't be for everyone, but if you like creative freedom when decorating a room (and let's be honest, who doesn't?), you'll love this set of 210 stickers. Position them in close proximity on a statement wall or spread them out across an entire room – the choice is yours!
It's surprising how much can be evoked by the sight of creeping octopus arms – everything from Norse mythology or classic literature to your favourite bottle of spiced rum. One thing's for sure, these huge decals are sure to elicit a response from anyone who enters the room!
They're not for those with traditional tastes, but their irreverence (particularly when compared to the dourness of many wall decals), and the fact that their monochrome colour scheme makes them resemble huge tattoos, will appeal in particular to fans of alternative culture.
Moroccan designs, with their intricate patterns and intriguing mixture of bright and deep colours, are instantly recognisable and eye-catching enough that they're found decorating the walls of homes, restaurants and establishments everywhere.
Their vibrant, sunny colours are sure to remind you of warmer climes, and because these stick-on tiles are so easy to apply and remove, they're particularly perfect for brightening up rental properties. Some may find their 'faux tile' appearance a little bit gaudy, but they're certainly more exciting than that tired looking coat of magnolia!
There's no doubt that nature has a calming effect that can soothe the soul, so what could be better than a wall decal that lets you relax under a canopy of green ivy branches, interspersed with the occasional red berry?
While it's common to find wall decals that cover part, or even the majority, of a wall, it's significantly less common to find one that's designed to be positioned at the top. For that reason, we feel that this one is best suited to tall rooms or to place beneath a skylight. It is also quite modest in size, so one pack alone may only cover a small part of your wall.
Now that you've chosen a wall decal, you're going to need to apply it! It's important to take your time during this step to ensure it adheres correctly and to avoid air bubbles.
