The beauty of using decals to decorate Ikea furniture includes:
- Easy to apply the decal to the Ikea furniture
- Removing the designer graphics is easy when it comes time to sell
- You can change decals regularly depending on the style or season
- Decals are washable which makes cleaning the Ikea surface simple
How to choose the right designer wall decals and wall stickers for your furniture?
Size: We recommend choosing smaller "kits" of decals to apply to the item. You could have a theme, or multiple smaller decals. This will make application of surface graphic easier.
Finish: Decals come in gloss or matte. By choosing decals with a matt finish, you will achieve a hand painted "mural" type look. When choosing gloss you are looking for a statement. Our preference is matt, but the great thing about decals-they promote individuality- so go for it and match your style.
Color: The same principles of using color in interior design apply to decal accessories. Either choose neutral colors, complimenting colors that suit the rest of the color scheme or contrasting colors if they work well with your décor.
Another consideration is that decals can look awesome in the SAME color as the Ikea furniture item. For example, if you have a white Ikea bookshelf. Purchasing a decal in white gloss will contrast the texture and catch any available light in the room.
Similarly, if you have a shiny silver table, using a metallic silver designer decal on the surface will look absolutely amazing.
Ideas for decals for Ikea furniture:
There are hundreds of ideas for using wall decals or surface graphics on modern furniture. Don't be limited by this list, but let it inspire you to achieve great heights in decorating your interiors.
- Apply word decals to the back or seat of the chair. Words such as FRIENDS, LAUGH. EAT, DRINK.
- Apply designs to the back or seat of the chair. Fancy being king or queen for a day, place a crown shape decal on the back of the chair.
- Our favorite fun decal is to apply a table setting in vinyl to the top of the dining table. The table setting can incorporate placemat, knife, fork, spoon, glass. These can be either traditional ornate settings or modern simplistic decal settings.
- Block words. Place blocks of words, some upside down, sideways, etc on the table so people can read upside down.
- Not enough books? For a fun and interesting idea, use a wall decal to decorate the back of the bookshelf. Either straight on the wall or use the decal directly on the Ikea furniture.
