Wall stickers are a fantastic self-adhesive option to add character to any wall or room, without being a permanent solution. Easily removable stickers are a smart choice for any room, in particular kids rooms, where tastes and preferences change and develop as they do. They are also well suited to help brighten up a wall where you do not want any permanent drill holes from wall hangings or shelving. Their ease of removal makes them the perfect choice for a rental property, as you are limited to the amount of wall decorating you can do. 

Of course, stickers can be added to other parts of the home, for example the tiles in the bathroom or kitchen. Today on homify we would like to present to you some decorating options that you may have overlooked when considering the theme of your kitchen. Hopefully we will help inspire you add some spice to a part of your home that may be dull and in need of life.

Not so much of a wall sticker, but more like an adhesive film, this matte finish, patterned wall adhesive looks great covering a mirror or any other surface with a shiny finish. The film will give an interesting effect and add texture to a surface that may have initially been overlooked for decorating. This reflective splash back for the kitchen has been deliberately installed with the intention of layering the film over it, adding a subtle touch to an area of the kitchen often forgotten when it comes to patterns or or decorations.

Tile stickers

Especially in older rental properties or in kitchens that are in dire need of renovating, old boring tiles seem to dominate the character of the room. This is a prime example of when stickers are a great solution, as they are cheap, have an endless range of patterns and designs available, and work to great visual effect. These antique- like patterned stickers are sure to brighten up old and tiring wall tiles, to give you a relatively inexpensive renovation solution!

Because wall stickers can come in all forms and sizes, why not add a fun decorative sticker to the walls, such as this playful take on how to rid your home of common mice; something we do not want to see in any part of our home, especially the kitchen! 

Words

Besides images, decorative shapes and colour, you can also create typography with wall stickers without having to be talented with a paint brush! Whether it's an aphorism, a famous quote or simply being added for its visual effect, text on the wall of your kitchen is never boring. Let the ease of removal entice you to change your text as regularly as you please, forever changing the feel of your kitchen with the words you choose.

Organic

Here we see an example of how sticker art can help create a special theme. In this modern kitchen, using timber as the main building material, the addition of a large tree sticker helps to create an organic, natural theme for the room. The serene black and white contrast is also such a nice transition from the kitchen to the living room, while small details like the orange cushion in the kitchen provides warmth and atmosphere.
