What is a Textured Wall?

Before we dive into our favorite textured wall decals and designs, let's take a moment to explain what a textured wall is, precisely.

A textured wall is a rough, bumpy wall where different materials and techniques are utilized to achieve this effect.

It's usually a result of applying plaster or drywall compound on walls.

There are 7 different wall textures that you can create:

  • Comb
  • Popcorn
  • Orange peel
  • Knockdown
  • Sand swirl
  • Slap Brush
  • Slap Brush Knockdown

They create a special grainy touch and can offer visual depth. Many homeowners fall in love with the textured look, because it adds character to the space.

However, there has always been a perceived downside to textured walls. Many believe that textured walls cannot be wallpapered, severely limiting their decorating endeavors.

Step 2: Measure your space before ordering.

Step 5: Prepare the surface of textured walls.

Remove dust, dirt, or any other contaminants that might interfere with the adhesive of the decal. It’s important to know how to prepare textured walls for wallpaper or before applying wall decals to your walls. A simple towel with some rubbing alcohol will work just fine to give it a clean start.

Step 6: Double-check the dimensions.

Remove the decal from its packaging and hold it against a corner of the wall to double-check that you have the right size.

Step 7: Remove the wall sticker backing.

Peel back a couple of inches of paper backing to reveal an adhesive strip. Be careful not to damage the paper backing! This strip is essential for transferring the wall decals to your walls.

Step 8: Stick the wall art to your textured walls.

Carefully align your design with a corner of your textured wall and begin pushing the adhesive strip onto the wall in a gentle, but firm motion. Be sure to smooth out any air bubbles or wrinkles with a debit or credit card. And make sure it’s firmly pressed onto the adhesive during this process.

Step 9: Remove the paper backing.

Once you've finished smoothing out your design, remove the rest of the paper backing very slowly. Don't rush this step or you might tear it! Also, be careful when removing any excess adhesive from the corners of your textured wallpaper or decal.

Step 10: Enjoy your new textured wall designs!

Now that you've successfully decorated your textured wall, sit back and relax. You deserve it!
