How to install a wall decal pattern


Pattern decals are a great and fast way to cheer up any surface. Polka dots, irregular dots, sprinkles, lightnings, rain drops are just a few examples of the patterns we have available. The first thing you need to decide is if you want to go for a geometric (evenly spaced) pattern or a more organic random one. We are great fans of randomness, but geometrically spaced ones gives you that wallpaper feel that works particularly great on bigger surfaces. 

Geometric patterns

If you want to go for a geometric pattern you need to plan ahead a bit. Measure the surface well, and use a guide to mark out the location of the decals. This guide can be something as simple as a square of paper that is cut to measure. By moving the paper and placing the decals in the where the corners of the paper touch is an easy way to get even spacing. If you want to get an offset spacing like in the video, just place the upper border of your paper in the middle of the decals of the row above. 

Another way to get geometric patterns is to use a ruler or other measure and a piece of chalk (or removable marker). With the chalk you plot out the locations of the decals on the wall before hand, as this allows you to make corrections before actually applying the decals. When you get the pattern right, you just apply the individual decals on top of the dots you made. Easy as a eating a Saturday morning pancake! 

Random patterns

Applying random patterns is more up to your own visual eye. We recommend that you peel off a small piece of the backing paper and use the transfer tape to attach the decals to the wall. This way you can reposition the decals before you actually attach them for a perfect pattern. A great way especially with polka dots is to go for a tight spacing up top and then loosen it up as you go down to achieve a cascading waterfall look.
