An easy and affordable option for updating any room – but particularly kids' rooms – wall stickers are an option worth considering when decorating, instantly adding colour and interest to a space.
Mess free and easy to remove, they are ideal if you are renting or want to incorporate trends into your space without investing too much time or money. We've selected a range of the best wall stickers, with designs ranging from customisable stickers to on-trend styles for your inspiration.

1. Create contrast in a dark scheme
While wall stickers are most commonly used to enhance a neutral space, they can be equally effective in a room with a darker scheme – the contrast of light wall stickers against grey and navy blue is particularly effective.
Recreate this look with Urban Forest (opens in new tab) wall stickers from Zazous. Choose from white or grey trees and a choice of 14 different coloured birds, for an easy addition to any scheme.
2. Enhance a kids' bedroom with stylish wall stickers
Wall stickers are a fun alternative to wallpaper and paint that allow a child to inject personality into their space. Plus, with wall stickers being so easy to remove, they can be changed regularly to suit a child's interests.
We love the contemporary feel of these PÖM Le Bon Homme (opens in new tab) gold and pink cloud wall stickers from Mini Maison, especially when paired with a stylish, Scandi inspired bed – find similar in our guide to kid's beds for modern homes.

3. Opt for a design that complements your space
In spaces such as the kitchen and bathroom, room-specific wall stickers can make for a sweet design feature and are an option worth considering if you're in a rental property.
A stylish addition to a kitchen, we love this Giant Cutlery (opens in new tab) wall sticker set in black, available from Brume.

4. Incorporate on trend prints and patterns
Similarly to botanicals, flamingoes are an on-trend motif that add a sense of fun and a pop of colour to an otherwise neutral space. To this extent, it's worth considering wall stickers as an easy way to incorporate interiors trends into your home.
Available in two sizes, we love this Pink Flamingo (opens in new tab) fabric wall sticker from Chameleon Wall Art.

5. Design a space that your child will love
Fire up your child's imagination with a sticker set that reflects their interests and (if you can relinquish some control) let them go to town decorating their space. Whether space, dinosaurs, animals or mystical creatures are their (current) passion, you're sure to find a sticker set that reflects this.
6. Create a calming space with delicate floral wall stickers
For a bedroom or living room with a calm ambience, consider pairing a white or neutral scheme with delicate floral wall stickers. Opting for a set that comes in different pieces will allow you to customise a design, ensuring it suits your style and space.
7. Use wall stickers on furniture for a cohesive look
Teamed with our paint colour schemes for kids' bedrooms, wall stickers can be effective in tying together an existing scheme. Remember that they're removable and reposition-able so can also be used on furniture and mirrors to create a more cohesive feel.
We love the idea of pairing this Woodland Tree and Friends (opens in new tab) sticker set from Studio with modern furniture.
8. Enhance a home office with stylish wall stickers
Perfect for adding interest to a home office, wall stickers are effective in making a home office feel inspiring, which will boost productivity (and who doesn't want that).
Other tips include keeping clutter to a minimum and surrounding yourself with mood boosting and desk-friendly house plants.
Find these Colourful Confetti Stickers (opens in new tab) at Tenvinilo.
9. Pair wall stickers with on-trend paint effects
Colour blocking is an on-trend paint effect that involves combining two or three different colours to make a bold design statement, and we can't get enough of it.
Introducing stylish wall stickers into a colour-blocked scheme is an easy way to add character and personality without detracting from the stylish feel of a space – particularly when your wall stickers are as gorgeous as these Sundance Wall Stickers (opens in new tab) from Villa Nova.
