Why Stickers and Posters are Perfect for Back to SchoolAugust 2, 2023
As college students start moving back to campus and begin looking for fun ways to give their dorm rooms and apartments some personality, most everyone is looking for fun, hassle-free ways to infuse their living spaces with a little color and a lot of personality, without damaging the walls or breaking the rules (ie: putting holes in the walls!).
While dorm rooms and apartment walls are like a blank slate for your imagination, before you start choosing a wallpaper or picking out a paint color, check the rules as many places do not allow paint, nails, or tracks on the walls. Here are numerous ways to showcase your style without causing damage to your walls. Removable adhesive strips and repositionable posters are about to become your best friends!
Here are some ideas to spark your creativity and help you create the perfect living space for the upcoming school year!
Paint some shaped cork pieces (hexagons, circles, or squares) and attach them to the wall with removable adhesive strips to create a cool, colorful bulletin board! Perfect for pinning photos, dream boards, reminders, and other notes.
Using the same concept and some larger pegs or push pins, you can create a wall-mounted storage and display system for necklaces and bracelets.
Use colorful, washi tape to create designs on your refrigeration (or micro-fridge). You can also incorporate some areas featuring a posterboard to add your favorite stickers, custom stickers, or additional design elements.
Spruce up your standard window coverings by hanging removable curtains using a small tension rod.
Posters! The poster décor possibilities are virtually endless. Consider designing custom, sticky-back posters to complement your space while showcasing your design aesthetic.
Use yoga mats or area rugs to create warmth and visual interest to your floors!
Create your own wallpaper using sticky-back posters! Simply design your own pattern and apply in a step-and-repeat pattern.
You can even dress up your dresser drawers or doors with washi tape, sticky back posters, or removable wallpaper!
Soften your space with decorative throw pillows, floor puffs, and cozy blankets.
Bring the outdoors in with house plants. Just be sure to put a plate or coaster underneath them to prevent water damage.
