Vinyl wall quotes are an increasingly popular decorating choice for your home, and it's no surprise! You can find a wall quote for any room and any decorating style on today's market. Vinyl wall quotes are much more affordable than hiring a professional but still look as though a professional came into your home and did a custom paint job. Here are some trendy tips to working with vinyl wall quotes that will add a personal touch to any room in your house.
Tip #1: It's All About Real Estate
Location is key with wall quotes. You'll want to pick a place that is at or slightly above eye level. If you're decorating a dining room, this may mean putting it at the eye level of a seated position at the table, while a kitchen most likely will require a standing height. Pick a spot with good lighting, or put a floor lamp in that area to draw attention to your quote. For a larger quote, a great location could be above the couch or fireplace, or even above your television. Before applying your vinyl, hold it up in several places to gauge how it will look in that location. Consider other features, such as curtains, shelves and pictures, before making your final decision.
Tip #2: To Level or Not to Level
A level can be your best friend when it comes to making sure your wall quotes are straight. However, there are some circumstances where a level is an enemy rather than a friend. This holds especially true for old houses, where the floors and ceilings themselves may not be perfectly level. If this is the case, your wall quotes may appear crooked even if they are perfectly straight. When dealing with a situation where elements of your house are not level, it's better to match your quotes to the angle of the closest parallel line. This includes shelves, so carefully consider your location before application. When matching to a ceiling or shelf, you can hang strings of the same length along the line to mark out the location for your vinyl wall quotes.
Tip #3: Consider Your Decor
Always consider the current decor of your house before applying vinyl wall art. A block print quote may look fantastic in a house with a modern style and decor, but will likely clash in a house with a vintage or a Victorian theme. Consider the style of your home and the room where you will be placing your wall quote. This is where your creative ability really comes into play. Choose a wall quote that is something you love and that adheres to your lifestyle, but also try to pick something that will go along with the theme of the room in question. Try a flowing script for a sanctuary type bedroom, or bold block print for a children's room.
These three simple tips will help brighten any room you might wish to place vinyl wall quotes. The possibilities are endless!
