Bathrooms and Decals: Do the two work together?

  • July 02, 2014

If you ever had questions about if your Wallums decal could be applied to your tile, walls, or other surfaces in your bathroom the answer is yes!

Take a look at a these two projects from Roeshel, blogger at DIYShowOff.com using our Bath Wall Decal, and my very own trial at home!

Roeshel was very clever with her installation! Shown here installed on a piece of scrap wood that was sanded and destressed, her decal is now a unique bath sign that can be moved from wall to wall when some re-arranging and re-decorating is needed.

Curious myself, I decided to give it a go at installing a decal in my own home! If you have children who love bath time, this Family Of Ducks Wall Decal is the perfect addition to a kid friendly bathroom.

It is important to be absolutely sure where you would like to place your decal. Using tape such as clear packaging tape or blue painters tape, hold up your decal design before installing it and stand back to get a better idea of how it will scale on your wall or desired surface. For once the decal is finally installed, it is there to stay! The vinyl material is not meant to be reapplied again, and may stretch and lose its adhesive once removed.

The Problems With Grout

The Problems With Grout

First things first, be sure your bathroom walls and tile are clean and completely dry before you begin.  Second, I would suggest to be careful where the edges of your decal apply on tile for as I learned in this project, vinyl is not compatible with rough surfaces such as grout and will have difficulty adhering properly. Silly me, my poor little ducky heads were placed right on the grout line and started to peel off. Luckily though the rest of their bodies adhered perfectly, and they have remained stuck to my bathtub tiles after many, many showers!

So there you have it! These two projects prove that no room in your home is off limits when it comes to installing your wall decals!
