Wall art can look great in any room or any area of your home or office, but choosing the right wall piece for your space is critical. Quotes, monograms, images and shapes are available in numerous designs. However, prior to deciding on a particular design, there are some things that need to be considered.

First, consider where you will place your wall art. You wouldn’t place the same design in the living room as you might in a child' bedroom, and vice versa. Consider the coloring of your walls and furniture to find a vinyl color that would accent nicely. Consider the theme of your home; would a simple, clear vinyl quote look best? Or perhaps a more artsy, curly, elegant look?

Second, look at the size and area of your space. You want your wall art to fill the space, but not overfill. Try to leave at least 2 inches of blank space around the wall. You also don’t want to apply a vinyl decal that is too small if you have a large surface to work with. Consider the rule of threes when choosing which vinyl décor to use. You want your wall art to take up no more than 2/3 and no less than 1/3 of your wall space. Whether your space is an entire blank wall, or merely a small area, the rule of thirds remains the same.

Remember that wall vinyl is always removable, changeable and easy to update, but you want to find something that looks great all year long. One of the best uses of these vinyl quotes is to apply them in a child's room. Bright wall art provides a great way for children to have something interesting and inviting on their walls, but adheres so smooth, it is virtually impossible for them to peel off. Then when the child gets bored with them as they grow older, it is very easy to change the existing design to something that is more appropriate.
