Wall Mural Planning Phase
Step 1. Get Started With Wall Decals For Any Room
Decide where you want to use wall decals to create a beautiful wall. Which walls, which rooms, and so on. Are you looking to create a kids wall decal mural? Maybe wall decals for the baby nursery? Or are you planning a wall decal for adults space? Or both? Go ahead and pick one wall decal space and then move on to the next step.
Step 2. Pick Your Wall Mural Planning Method
You can choose the DETAIL-ORIENTED METHOD or the FREE-SPIRIT METHOD. Or maybe you need the SOMEWHERE-IN-BETWEEN METHOD. Read on and decide what is best for you!
DETAIL-ORIENTED WALL DECAL METHOD
Check out a sample of this method. You might want to use graph paper so you can draw to scale. Take measurements of the approximate width and height (in inches) of the area you want to use and draw it out using a scale that works (the side of each square might equal 3”, 6” or whatever works best). Write the dimension on the perimeter of the area. Make a separate sheet for each wall you want to use.
(If right about now your eyes are crossing and your heart is beating faster, may we suggest you skip down to the free-spirit method. You can always come back here after you catch your breath. ;)
Add in any furniture that you need to place your wall decals around. Sketch into the drawing the outline of each piece of furniture at the same scale that you used for the wall dimensions.
As you draw out your room, consider the following questions:
❊ Will the wall decal mural area include the entire wall including where it meets the floor and/or ceiling? Or just a section of it? Be sure you know the width and height of the area you want to use.
❊ Will the wall stickers be arranged around some pieces of furniture (like a bed, crib, dresser, changing table, rocking chair, etc.)?
❊ Are there any changes to your room you want to make before you put the stickers up (moving furniture, a quick coat of paint, etc.)?
FREE SPIRIT METHOD
This is where you trust the process and throw caution to the wind. If you are feeling like you don’t need or want to do too much planning, then don’t. Many a free spirit just picks the wall stickers they like on our website and figures it out when the decals arrive. We strongly encourage such trust and adventure!
You decide the balance and plan as much as you feel you need to, throw caution to the wind as much as you want to, and let your creativity run the show.
