Talk about a makeover! We’ve rounded up some of our favorite before and after photos from the Urbanwalls community. From sweet nurseries to sophisticated bedrooms to trendy trailers, these rooms show how wall decals not only add style and creative flair, but they also help maximize a small space. It’s a perfect way to add decor—without taking up a single inch of real estate!

Nursery - Before and After Photos: Bohemian Palms
Turn any room into an oasis with the Bohemian Palms wall decals. We love the textured rug and beaded chandelier that complements the wallpaper’s nature-inspired aesthetic. It’s the perfect floral sanctuary for a little one's nursery.

Master Bedroom - Before and After Photos: Water & Ink
This swoon-worthy master bedroom is in full bloom with the Water & Ink wall decals. The accent wall is vibrant yet soft, and it provides just the right amount of color against the white paint without dominating the space. We also love the way the blanket and comforter tie into the wall decals but aren’t overly matchy matchy. Gorgeous. Pro tip: Having trouble choosing a wall decal for your room?

Before & After
Bedroom - Before and After: Large Indigo Brushstrokes
The Large Indigo Brushstrokes wall decal comes to life in this wonderfully vibrant bedroom. The accent wall transforms this bedroom by not only adding color to the space, but also bringing out the other colors in the bedroom from the rug, bedding, and guitar. Artsy, playful, and cohesive!

Trailer Bedroom - Before and After Photos: Eden Floral Decals
If you’ve ever wondered if an accent wall can maximize a space - look no further than this trailer! The Eden Floral Decals perfectly pair with the stylish bedding, textured blinds, and white walls. The best part: each decal adds art and color without taking up any inches that could be used for furniture and other essentials.

Do’s and Don’ts to Maximize a Room With Wallpaper
- DO: Be mindful of patterns. For example, if you have a patterned wallpaper - consider keeping your curtains more solid. And vice versa - if you have patterns on your furniture - then, perhaps reach for more solid wallpaper and decals.
- DON’T: Do not overlook nooks! Small nooks can be some of the coziest and creative spaces thanks to wallpaper and wall decor. Even lining cabinets and bookshelves can work wonders on a space!
- DO: Consider white wallpaper with floral designs! This is a nice way to add design and creativity without overwhelming a space with color.
- DO: Embrace accent walls! If you’re hesitant to add wallpaper, start with an accent wall to create a beautiful focal point - and go from there.
- DON’T: Don’t forget about your room’s fifth wall - the ceiling. Wallpaper on a ceiling can create a major impact in a way you wouldn’t necessarily expect!
Other notes on styling and choosing wall decals for your room
Whether you’re hoping to make a big statement with your wall decor or add a subtle faux headboard, wall decals are easily customizable depending on what you want. But we know it can be intimidating when it comes to picking a design.
We recommend first deciding which space you have in mind for the decals, then reflecting on what type of mood you want to set and how the design will fit into the aesthetic (literally and figuratively). From there, consider the relationship between the wall decals and your current furniture, wall paint, and decor. But above all, wall decals should add joy to your home! So have fun and don’t be afraid to experiment a little. After all, they’re removable 🙂
Once you’ve picked a design, check out our installation instructions to make the process of applying decals as easy as possible. Keep in mind the decals are designed for one-time use, so be mindful when applying the design to the surface. You’ll be able to adjust the designs when applying - but we’d recommend being really confident with your design before you really rub them in. It’ll pay off in the end!
