From popcorn ceilings to orange peel texture to slab brush, there are dozens of different types of wall textures and finishes. But if you have textured walls, will it change your options for wall decor? Can you still put wall decals on textured walls? These are both questions we’ve heard many times from our customers. In this blog, we’ll cover some tips, ideas, and other things to consider as you decorate your textured walls.
Yes! Luckily, there’s no need to give up on your vision because you have textured walls. In fact, at Urbanwalls, we offer many designs in two options: standard wall and textured wall - the latter is specifically designed for textured spaces.
However, we do *highly* recommend you get a sample before you purchase a full pack of decals. This is because every texture is different, so it’s a challenge to say with certainty that the decals will absolutely work in your room. (For instance, popcorn and stucco will be different with wall decals compared to a slab brush finish.) As a general rule, it’s best to order a sample to ensure that your walls pair with the decals in the way you want them to. Note: Keep in mind that our sample decals are smaller and may stick slightly differently than a large-scale design. Just something to remember!
Generally, wall decals will be easier to stick to a surface if it’s flat. So if your walls are textured, you may want to consider smoothing out the wall before adding the wallpaper or decal. This is not a quick process, but it will put you in a good position to get beautiful results.
That said, if you’re renting or do not want to take that step, we recommend investing in thicker material decals that are designed with textured walls in mind (like our decals for textured walls). Otherwise, the decals will likely stick just fine to the surface, but you might see minor imperfections or bits of texture coming through the decal.
Here’s a look at 10 of the designs available for textured spaces. But remember- we encourage you to order a sample and ensure they work for your space - whether it’s your bedroom, living room, nursery, or kitchen.
