Wall Stickers - Not just for Walls
I have been sticking wall stickers on walls for a while now and very nice they look too. No other home improvement product can compare in terms of impact for the money.
The benefits are impressive, easy to put up, easy to take down, easy to alter, no need to wear protective clothing, no mess, no fuss etc etc..
But as with all truly impressive creations, it is the opportunity to go off-piste and experiment with different contexts that enable the wall sticker to truly shine. For it is not just on walls that stickers can stick. Oh no! Application is possible on any smooth surface you care to think of and this opens up myriad opportunities for home improvement and the only limit is your imagination.
If we remember that the technology for wall stickers originated in the world of sign making; consider where we have seen that technology applied outside the domestic sphere. Look at what they do in shops. Sales are announced with stickers on windows. You can apply wall stickers to your windows – a butterfly, a dandelion – they work inside and out and from both sides. Certain wall stickers are designed to frame a rectangular area with tendril like delicacy, perfect for a window where light is still needed to penetrate.
In the commercial world you will often see stickers on shop fittings – a very smooth way of imparting ever changing information about products. In your home an adaptaion of the same idea can make updating the look of a kitchen a much simpler and non-invasive procedure than replacing cupboard doors. Many sticker designs are available with just that idea in mind and, as ever, give you the opportunity to update furnishings time and time again. With todays modern streamlined kitchen look you might prefer to stretch a large design over several cabinet doors rather than restrict yourself to numerous small stickers – be careful with those scissors!
In the bathroom, wall stickers will feel just as at home on a mirror or tiled surface as they will a plastered wall and there’s no need to worry about the effects of a damp environment – remember, wall stickers started life outside. Once again, certain wall sticker designers have the updating of bathrooms in mind and have made available whole sheets of tile sized stickers.
So, we’ve looked out the window, at the furniture, on our mirrors.. where else? Look up! That’s right, the ceiling! Remember, any smooth surface will let you stick a wall sticker so that’s where I’m going to stick the birds, or maybe the flying saucers, or perhaps a hot air balloon…
