DIY into the wall vinyl trends of this season

Gone are the days of minimal and simple ol homes. Be it the designers or the consumers, the post pandemic world has everyone looking for something fresh and unique to revitalize their homes. Over the past few years especially, the demand and trend of creating a home that speaks to who you are, giving your living space a character and a flair for it to feel truly you.  

A big part of this trend has been the will of people to make a space feel like their own by participating extensively in its design. This has given rise to the DIY army and trend. DIY essentially stands for Do it yourself. While the concept is popular across a lot of industries, it has especially gained a lot of momentum in interior design and decor. As people look for ways to decorate and design their home by themselves, there are huge online communities of ideas and networking that are on the rise. 

A particularly easy and stunning diy project is the trendy wall vinyls. Wall vinyls have been getting a lot of love for quite some time now. They allow one to refresh a space by adding designs to a wallin a simple and cost effective way. 

DIY followers across the world have been welcoming the wall vinyl trend in their own way by taking up the job to themselves to create stunning and simple designs. With a basic set of tools at hand, anyone can create a stellar wall vinyl to give your home something unique. 

Here are some super easy and pretty designs that you can execute easily to level up your living space: 

A SIMPLE ADD ON 

 

For when you’re looking for a quick change without having to do too much, minimal decals multiplied across a wall can do wonders. Taking a gander at the above design, against a white wall, small plus shaped decals have been placed and spread out. Such patterns are rather simple to execute.

All one needs is some contact paper and a marker. Contact paper is a special kind of sheet which has an adhesive on it and can be used to trace designs onto to create wall vinyls.

This is a helpful material throughout other designs as well. You can begin by tracing out the pattern onto the contact sheet, or even create a standard stencil to maintain uniformity. Simply cut out the pattern from the sheet and stick it to your wall in an evenly spaced manner.

Be sure to press down the decal well so as to prevent wear and tear. You could also try out other unique shapes to create a simply gorgeous design. 


CHALK IT UP 

 

Doubling down on the DIY is this next design. For the artist in you, having a spot to freely scribble, doodle or simply a wall that you can refresh in a swipe can prove to be truly fruitful. This is exactly what a chalk wall vinyl offers. Chalk vinyl wraps are rather affordable and easy to work with.

All you need to do is measure the spots you are covering, cut the sheets to size and smoothly place them onto your wall in a simple peel and stick motion. Whether you cover an entire wall or choose to get creative with different shapes and potions, the chalk wall vinyl can look charming just about anyway.

Having the chalkboard like surface gives one the opportunity to easily rub off a design, quote or pattern and start afresh when you feel like you need something new around you without having to worry about cost, effort and time.

You get double the DIY for the price of one, as you can keep on creating your own wall designs over time. Not to forget, the warmth of nostalgia that this design offers is incomparable. 

MAR-BLING YOUR ROOM

 

The marbling pattern has become an insta favorite of late and for all the right reasons. The basic premise is to mimic the flow and pattern of a marble in everyday objects to get a similar subtle look.

People have been resorting to marbling anything and everything including furniture, art and even decor objects so why not try out the same on your walls as well. The marbling pattern is the easiest one to pull off.

There are two ways to go for such a look. The first is to go for a pre-made marble contact paper and execute the installation and finish yourself through due diligence on the proper measurements and application. Another way to go is to create the pattern yourself.

You could start with a solid colored contact paper as a backdrop and use water based paints that flow easily or even chalk to create the marble pattern. Remember to be fluid in the design rather than geometrical. It is also essential if you opt for paint to ensure that your prime the contact paper to prevent it from tearing. 

PLAY WITH STRIPES 

 

Stripes are a timeless and simple pattern that you can create rather easily. The decision for a stripes pattern has to begin with its ratio. Whether you opt for parallel equal sized stripes or play around with the thickness and length, each approach will have a different effect on the room.

The next thing to keep in mind is the color scheme. For a simple approach, you can stick to the classics with black and white or have some fun experimenting with different colors put together, or even try a monochromatic gradient to keep it simple yet gorgeous.

The possibilities to play around with stripe designs are endless. To create the pattern you can opt for vinyl stickers, customize through contact paper or simply use the ol trusty masking tape and vinyl paint to create the pattern of your choice. 

MAP OUT MOTIVATION 

 

A rather trendy pick in wall vinyl and design overall has been the use of quotations or phrases. The phrases could be anything from statements, to your favorite quotes or a simple word that evokes a positive feeling in your mind. Customizing such a quote is rather simple using wall vinyls.

Simply pick a quote and a font that you would like to follow. You can choose to freestyle and write it in your own handwriting or DIY stencils using cardboard cutouts to standardize the font and sizing of the text. Using a stencil and marking out the placement is very essential for such a design so as to assure proper alignment and uniformity.

You can simply go for a bold quote or pair it with smaller decals to create a symphony of designs. Simply trace your wordings on to contact paper, neatly cut out the letters and place them onto your wall for a quick and fun add on to your space. 

TAKE CUES FROM NATURE

 

Designs inspired by nature are always the safest bet for when you are looking to enliven a space. Why you may ask? Because such designs have one of the most calming effects on a person’s minds. Multiple studies over the years have noted that surrounding yourself with elements of nature can make one feel a lot more positive and refreshed.

Even in places where actual elements are not possible to add, having their form being present proves to be helpful. Not to forget, the beauty of nature is a plus point for any space. There are a lot of different ways to go with such a design. If you have a creative stroke in you, you could go all out with the scenery of the forest, ocean or whatever appeals to you the most.

You could paint the scenery onto the primed contact sheet and apply it to your wall carefully. For a simpler way out, you can pick a solid color of your choice, and cut out the contact sheet in the shape of the element you are trying to replicate i.e. trees, leaves, butterflies, birds etc.

You can then transfer these cutouts to your wall after planning the placement to create a subtle point of focus in the room that reminds you of the great outdoors. 


Summing up, the DIY movement in interior design is one that is definitely here to stay. Wall vinyls in particular are one of the diy projects that have been taking over the internet. They are simple, affordable and easy to work with. One can freely customize and create designs to one’s liking and give their home the character it needs.
