Commercial Wall Decals

Everyone knows that wall decals are an easy and inexpensive way to give interiors a space lift or drive home a theme. In these times of shrinking budgets and reduced remodeling initiatives, interior designers and architects are using wall decals to complete their design vision and they are delivering it within budget. commercial wall decalsThese design professionals are also discovering that wall decals are GREEN and can accomplish a desired look with a lot less material and waste. We at WALLTAT are seeing this increased demand with storefronts and retail stores looking for an identity.

In my recent trip to Paris, I was not surprised to see that Europe has a head start in the commercial wall decals trend. Europeans are known to be trend setters in the world of fashion and I guess the same holds true for new products and wall decals are no exception.

Here is a popular shopping center that has made full use of them around columns on the sides of escalators and throughout otherwise dull areas of the space.

The Burberry storstorefront decalse in Frankfurt, Germany is another example of storefronts using wall decals as a backdrop to a featured window display.

Wall Stickers or Wall Decals

We have noticed that quite a few people are searching our WALLTAT site for wall stickers of popular characters such as Superman, Spiderman, Barbie and others and felt that since we at WALLTAT don't carry such items we would refer our customers to a product that we think will do the trick.
Keep in mind that this site is not going to have the wall decals that you can find on WALLTAT.com but you will find wall stickers that are amazing.

Decorating for Fall

When I think of fall I think of football, falling leaves, harvest and pumpkins.

Fall is my favorite seasons for many reasons. For one, it is harvest season for many parts of the US and it is time to reap the benefits of spring and summer's hard work. The weather is once again comfortable with hits of cold of the winter to come (I live in the midwest). Nature responds to this change with some dramatic changes of it's own, as birds head south, trees shed their leaves and remind us once again of the cyclical nature of all that is.
falling leaves wall decals
If you live in a big city and don't get to experience fall every day, take some time to get out of the concrete jungle and drive to the country even it's for a day. I think it is important to visually experience this change and prepare yourself for the winter ahead.

Another great way to embrace fall is to bring elements of the outdoors to your interior spaces. Pumpkin carving, hay and leaves are a great example of this. Of course this stuff has a shelf life and needs to be disposed of pretty quickly. For those that want something that lasts a bit longer there is the falling leaves wall decals.
Wall decals are a great way to decorate and redecorate your interiors not just for fall but all seasons. With so many themes, sizes and colors to choose from decorating is fun, easy and inexpensive. WALLTAT also has year round themes for babies, kids and adults. Check our wall decals collection at our online store.

Dorm Decor

Small Dorm Rooms require Big Impact

It is that time of year again as young adults are headed back to college and often their new dorm room. For some, this means that they will be away from home for the first time, as others are looking forward to reuniting with friends. For the freshmen, it should come as no surprise that your dorm room will be small and most likely shared with a stranger. This is why as much as you would like to make it your own, your roommate will have something to say about it- compromise is the name of the game.

Now, if you are a freshman or going back as a seasoned student you have almost certainly had a busy couple of weeks gathering essentials (and you are sure to miss some), picking out bedding, and making sure you have enough clothes to last until your first break. Miss Scholastic has a great first person view on dorm life.

Dorm decor may not be up on your list, especially because of the roommate situation, but you should be prepared to show them something that will blow them away and win you some cool points off the bat. Of course I am talking about WALLTAT Wall Decals for dorm decor, and no I don't mean college logos or mascots (if you must get those at your bookstore).

Most college dorms have rules against painting or making any permanent changes to the room and the fact that WALLTATs are removable, leaving no marks behind, makes them ideal for this purpose.

So browse our dorm decor suggestions and keep in mind that you can customize size and color. Pick out a couple of great designs and see what your roommate has to say. WALLTATs are easy to apply give small spaces the depth and dimension that is necessary for big impact.

Stamping Designs on Walls?

Lucky for you there is a better way with Wall Decals!

People have long been hand painting design elements to their existing wall colors as a way of sprucing up their interiors. Stencils and stamps were introduced to speed up the process of more simple designs and repeating patterns. These application methods have created some great interiors, but of course the final design results were dependent on the painter or artist that was performing the work. Although these methods are still used today, they are pretty messy, time consuming and can be expensive.

Until recently paint was just about the only way to create compelling artistic designs aside from wallpaper. Today, you can create amazing wall designs although you may not be an artist. Using precision cutting equipment and high quality vinyl, we create impeccable designs that are easy to apply, and cost effective.

With our matte finish wall decals, you can create the look of a custom mural or a stamped design with amazing precision. All of our designs including the large full wall mural type are delivered to you already laid out, taking the guesswork out of the installation. Compare the quality and cost of having an artist hand paint a similar design and you will come to the same conclusion:

Wallpaper! But better.


WALLTAT Wallpaper is made of a lightweight polyester cloth, conceived without harmful PVC's, phosphates, formaldehyde or Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's). It is printed with eco-solvent inks that do not contain nickel or VOC's, and in turn do not give off any odors or pollutants. The texture and finish of the high quality, 8-color printing process creates colorful and lively artwork on the matte finish vinyl cloth, eliminating glare. This achieves maximum visual impact from all angles. WALLTAT Wallpaper is versatile enough to be used for a multitude of projects. We use it for ultimate durability in our standard application as wallpaper or paintings, tapestries and screens for the home or office. It is also water resistant that makes it perfect for corporate signage. See more at the following collections:

Wall Decals mean IMPACT!

We recently asked WALLTAT friends and twitterers for photos of their WALLTAT installations and couldn't be happier with the response. We have been talking about the ability to make an impact with a single decal (see home staging below) and these customers know exactly what we are talking about.

This Chandelier installation in frosted finish was installed on a mirrored wall to further enhance the illusion of depth and dimension. Very nice job!



This light and airy room is another great example of what is possible with WALLTAT. Two tall grasses wall decals were used here to wrap this half wall. The white color is a perfect selection for this contemporary space. What I'd like to know is: where can I get that chair? Just a great space!

Thank you again, to our friends for sharing with us and everyone their vision and installations. We look forward to more feedback from you.

Home Staging with Wall Decals (Part 2)


It is no secret that our friend Ed Rudock is a big fan of WALLTAT. If for no other reason, Ed understands the high impact effect a simple element like a WALLTAT can have on a room or interior space. But I'm sure there are more reasons- right ED?

As a follow up to our earlier post, we wanted to showcase Ed's creativity in this transitional room, that got people talking during this open house. And that was exactly the point!

Here Ed combines several Line Graphic Wall Decals to produce a dramatic backdrop for this bonus room. He used the inverse option to get a mirror image of the design and combined them seamlessly to produce another memorable feature for this great space- brilliant!

This installation is further proof that high impact does not have to mean high cost. WALLTAT delivers designs with inherent value that are capable of transforming interiors in a cost effective manner.

Home Staging with Wall Decals

As the inventory of homes for sale continues at an all time high, sellers and real estate agents are getting creative to make their properties stand out. In our latest client submitted project, our friend Ed Rudock, an interior designer based out of Washington DC, shows how using WALLTAT wall decals can make your home just a little more memorable to potential buyers.

Ed used the Ginko Biloba in a size C in this bedroom to compliment the headboard of this contemprary bedroom. The end result is a high impact visual delight that brings color and style to a magnificently designed room- nice job Ed!

Not all Wall Decals are Created Equal

Wall Decals have been creating quite the buzz lately and more and more people are using them to decorate and transform everything from living rooms, kids rooms and nurseries, even bathrooms and glass. The designs are fun and installation is a breeze. However, as you are searching for your perfect design it is important to note that not all wall decals are created equal.

Here are a few things to consider when purchasing wall decals online.

  • Size of Wall Decal: this seems like an obvious one but be sure to review the dimensions of your product with the picture shown. For example a site may show an image spanning an entire sofa but the dimensions prove to be much smaller. At WALLTAT we offer up to five different sizes to our designs, and show images that are true to size. We also encourage you to measure your space before ordering.
  • Vinyl Quality: this is probably the most important attribute when selecting your wall decal. Not only will a high quality vinyl decal last longer, it will maintain color and blend in with your walls better. High quality vinyl will have it's color throughout (also making it usable on glass surfaces) and for interior uses should be a matte finish. WALLTAT uses only High Quality Vinyl. We offer 34 different color options in a matte finish that is flame retardant (B1/M1 Fire Rating) and ideal for interior use.
  • Design Layout: for best results and design integrity you want the wall decal to come in as few pieces as possible, preferably one. This will insure that have a horizon or vanishing point will be visually consistent to the eye. Some providers will show a given design installed but what they are selling is individual elements. This requires you to lay them out and recreate the design. For some graphic designs this is desirable because you may want to create your own patterns, but if you are purchasing a design with scene it will be difficult to recreate the layout. Most standard sizes (A,B,C) of WALLTAT designs come in one piece to ensure design integrity. This means no guesswork on your part and your design will look exactly as you saw it on screen. For larger or multi-colored designs WALLTAT breaks the vinyl into rolls of 4 ft. and uses match points to for accuracy. Simply peel the backing and apply to your wall.
  • Design Detail: the great thing about this wall decor alternative is that it allows for a very precise level of detail. However, the detail is only as good as the design and some designs are simply better than others. WALLTAT designs are created by talented graphic artists from around the world including France, the origin of wall decals.

WALLTAT Wall Decal - Arbor Magic in the Washinton Post

The Washington Post takes on design requests from its audience and features them in "House Calls" in the Home & Garden section. In the March 12, 2009 issue Ed Rudock of Spacelift Staging and Interior (re)Design takes on the challenge of a homeowner that is adopting a newborn baby and would "love some help with decorating her [nursery]."

"The furniture arrangement started with the crib, which is the focal point," says Ed. He added to this focal point the Arbor Magic Wall Decal from the WALLTAT nature collection to really drive home the point.

Colorful Kids Decals


This year, WALLTAT has introduced the "Kids on Safari" collection of full color wall decals filled with imagination. It is perfect for a nursery and would allow your child to interact with their surrounding while learning colors, shapes and animals. There are many fun characters and animals to choose from, along with background decals to fill in any blank areas. Much easier to install than messy stencils or gluey wallpaper. You can even cut the decals with regular scissors if you face a tricky angle or obsticle. Most importantly, they are completely removable, so when the little one is ready to graduate into an older collection of decals, such as nature, sports or pop culture you can peel it off and start again!

2009 Walltat Inspiration using Wall Tattoos

This year home improvement projects will no longer involve expensive custom finishes or average looking wall paper. Walltat is offering an easy solution with removable vinyl wall stickers that are thin enough to cut with scissors if there is a particular look you are aiming for, or area that has a tricky angle. There are over 500 designs that include new collections for 2009, such as wall decals of Faces, wall decals for Kids on Safari and Car Decals. Even the old collections have been updated with new decals, there are so many cool decals it's almost hard to decide on just one. Most of these wall tattoos can be paired with another to create a collage look. To maximize a larger wall, the use of two decals can be applied to create an asymmetric look. There are endless possibilities when using Walltat "art without boundaries." Sky is the limit.
