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.
