Personally, I have always really enjoyed the value they have added to my home and workplace (home office). For me, they are reminders, motivators, and educators. So they are a very valuable addition to my home. Yet, to you, they may have an entirely different purpose. Through over a decade in the industry, I have talked with countless customers who have shared their stories about why they purchased a particular wall decal, what their goal was, and, possibly most importantly, how the decal met their needs. So, I have a lot of great customer feedback as well.

4. Flexibility: Decorative vinyl wall decals are used in a variety of ways. They can go on walls, mirrors, windows, cars, furniture, ceilings, floors, inside, outside, and adhere to almost any flat surface. They can even be cut apart and the pieces are used to create a new design altogether that is uniquely yours. This wall art started as a regular design and found its way to the risers of a stairway. In this other photo, the wall decal was utilized as a stencil and then removed creating a true painted-on piece of art without the need for much artistic talent.

5. Professional: A vinyl wall quote on your wall will look like it is hand painted on. Many of your friends will comment on how talented you are.

6. Easy to Apply: While installing your first wall decal may be a bit scary, it is really very easy. Hundreds of thousands of vinyl wall decals are installed every year by people not nearly as capable as you. Therefore, YOU CAN DO IT!

7. Great Value: Wall Decals are incredibly inexpensive for the amount of beauty they add to a room. A typical wall quote can be found for anywhere between $10 and $50 depending on size yet will last virtually forever.

8. Minimal Cleaning: Don’t you already dust enough? Intricate picture frames can collect a lot of dust and be hard to clean. Yet, a wall decal goes on flat and smooth. They require virtually no maintenance. They look great the day you install them and still look great years later. I have wall decals that have been up for almost 10 years now and still look perfect. So, they can make your life easier by not creating more work for you.

9. Daily Reminders: A well-placed wall decal can provide a daily reminder of whatever is important to you. For some, a favorite scripture verse helps keep them focused on their faith, for others a great motivational quote directs towards goals, and for others, a great drinking quote makes the perfect addition to the man cave. Consequently, they are personal reminders that say exactly what you want them to say.

10. Motivation: I can only speak for myself, but motivation can be hard to find some days. I suspect most need a little kick in the pants some days. My home office walls are littered with motivational quotes that help keep me going. Reading these quotes inspires me so I get more done. These are a few of my favorites.

11. Educational: One popular wall decal is simply the alphabet in upper and lower case letters. These are great for a classroom or a homeschooling area. A wall decal like this can be put up in a straight line or can be cut apart and put up in whatever design you create. Therefore, they silently educate the viewer every time they see them. A scripture quote can help someone memorize their favorite passage. A famous historical quote can help illustrate a topic.

12. Summarized Wisdom: A quote from a historical figure like Benjamin Franklin can often summarize much of their wisdom into a few meaningful words. This passes some of that wisdom forward to new audiences. So wall quotes often teach us a great deal.

13. Silently Shared: Wall Decals don’t just speak to the person who invests in it, they speak to everyone who sees it. It is very difficult to walk by a well-designed wall art and not read it when you are first exposed to it. Human nature demands that we read something that has been given a place of prominence in a home, office, or even gym. Your message gets shared every time a new person sees it.

14. Goal Reinforcement: Imagine having a favorite motivational quote on the wall right in front of the treadmill. Every time you are pushing yourself to a new level and the strength is fading and the desire to quit is creeping into your mind, there is that quote. It helps to awaken that fire within and pushes you to achieve that goal. Therefore, goals are more often met.

The right quote or reminder in the right place can really help me make the changes I need to make to replace those bad habits with new better ones. This is probably one of the better reasons to use decorative vinyl wall decals.

16. Offers Hope: Ever felt like you have hit rock bottom? My hand just shot up. I have been there many times in my life. It can be a dark place to be. Sometimes, that simple encouraging wall quote is just that little bit of encouragement that helps me through a day. This scripture wall decal of Jeremiah 29:11 is a favorite verse for offering hope. As a result of many wall decals, my spirits are lifted and I often have better days.
