Want to liven up the walls of your child's bedroom but still having nightmare flashbacks about removing all that 70's wallpaper? Look no further, because removable wall decor may be just the answer you're looking for.

In the past, decorating walls involved pasting sheets of paper that were virtually impossible to remove. Not only that, but they were equally impossible to align. Painted wall murals became popular for a while, but they required a lot of work and a good degree of artistic talent. Many people used stencils to try to achieve a professional quality, but in the end you were left with a lot of effort for something that your child may grow tired of very quickly.

These days, vinyl wall decals come in all shapes and sizes. Wall decor and printing technology has merged to create great products that are full of vibrant color. Best of all, they are easy to apply and come off your walls just as quickly - leaving no glue, residue, or trace of a mark behind. This advantage alone would be worth it, but then factor in how fickle and changing a child's tastes can be... and that's when you realize how important it is to get removable wall decor.

And these types of wall stickers and decals are not just for kids, either. Many varieties of removable wall decor are produced for living rooms and adult living spaces. Some very detailed wall murals and sticker creations can turn your living room into a deep forest, a rose-filled garden, or a window overlooking a beautiful lake. Online stores like the Wall Sticker Outlet has hundreds of options when it comes to removable wall decor, and they offer on all of their products.

Peel and Stick wall appliques can be applied to the walls of your home just as vinyl decals, either in conjunction to compliment a wall mural or by themselves. Going on without glue or paste, these removable decals can be used to spruce up accessories, cabinets, mirror frames, and anywhere else you can think of. Removable wall borders are also available, and can be used in any room of the house.

Another recent idea for removable wall decor has been the invention of the chalkboard surface. This fantastic product can be applied to any smooth surface and then written on, with normal chalk, just as if it were a blackboard. Slap one on the fridge and scribble your shopping list, or place one on your dorm room wall and leave a note for your roommate. The possibilities for wall chalkboards are endless, and they peel right off without glue or mess. They also come in a dry-erase surface as well, which can be written on with a dry-erase marker and then wiped clean with a cloth.

So don't be afraid! Wall stickers and decals aren't as scary as you think they might be. At least not today, in the age of removable wall decor.
