Stenciling words onto your walls has been a growing trend in interior design since the early nineties. Hcouowever, stenciling has traditionally been reserved for upscale homes due to the cost and labor involved in achieving a professional looking result. In the last couple of years, however, this trend has taken a turn for the better with the introduction of removable vinyl lettering, sometimes referred to as “Wall Words.” Wall Words have come full swing in the last two years as several sites have introduced removable vinyl letters for the walls of your home. Having a custom stenciled look is no longer reserved for those who can afford to have the wall letters painted on, but is available to even those who are seeking to decorate on a modest budget.
Wall Words, and custom wall lettering is now available to anyone wanting to achieve a hand stenciled look – at literally a fraction of the cost. Furthermore, not only can vinyl wall lettering serves the same purpose as a hand-painted stenciled look, but custom vinyl lettering is actually better than stenciling for a couple of reasons. First, vinyl lettering is easy to apply, there is no messy cleanup, and costs less than paint. Secondly, vinyl lettering kits, or custom wall words, are removable without damaging the walls, so there is no need to repaint. This provides those living in apartments, or other temporary living spaces to decorate with a hand-stenciled look, because you can simply remove the lettering at any time – no need to repaint!
Some may be asking, “Why add wall words, or wall lettering to the walls our home or apartment?” The answer is simple; Wall Words can create an inspiring, calming, or uplifting effect to any room in your home. They also give your home a touch of personality, and can bring your own personal charm into your decorating. Once you’ve seen some examples of how wall words can enhance the look and atmosphere of your home, you’ll be hooked! The practicality, cost, and beauty of wall words have inspired me to utilize them in many of the homes and apartments I decorate – You could say I’m “Stuck” on wall words.
