CUT IT OUT Wall Stickers review

I have noticed in interiors magazines that wall stickers have become very popular and when CUT IT OUT contacted me to try one of their wall stickers I was very excited. They have a huge range to choose from. There are stags heads, quotes, flowers and children's designs to personalised stickers. There really is something for every taste and style.
Each sticker is designed by the graphic design team and cut out of very thin coloured vinyl so it looks like it has been painted onto your wall.

I chose a trendy design of a balloon that says 'Oh happy day' in light blue. It was actually available in 20 colours from red to silver and in a choice of sizes. For the wall area I required I picked a medium sized sticker (83cm high). The sticker was a lovely matt finish and cut out really well, we just needed to stick it to the wall following CUT IT OUT's online instructions. I must admit I did wonder how it worked and got DB to help me as he's better at instructions than me. photo wallstickercollage_zps5cd8e7c3.jpg
It was then actually very easy to attach the sticker to the wall, firstly anchoring the design down the middle with some tape to get it into the right position. Then peeling away half the backing paper, cutting that away and then smoothing the design down using a plastic card to smooth out any air bubbles. Finally after about 20 minutes you carefully peel the transfer paper off , leaving just the blue sticker and voilĂ  a lovely design on your wall.  photo P1000828_zpscc501831.jpg
I think these wall stickers are a great idea when you want to spruce up a room on a budget. The sticker I picked retails at £11.99 with free postage and packaging, which is a bargain isn't it for such a good effect. They are said to be easy to remove and I could see that would be possible, so maybe they would be good to use in rental properties or just if you fancy a change to improve a room.

I put the sticker in our family room and I think it makes a cheery addition. I love the personalised stickers which are very reasonably priced from £12.99 and would be great for a child's room.

Disclosure: I was sent a wall sicker from CUT IT OUT for the purposes of the the review but it is my own opinion.

I've never used wall stickers before. They look very pretty. I like the tree one.

So sweet and much nicer than some of the generic ones on the market! I'll take a look at their site!

Looks fab, we have used them in the boys rooms and I am after one for the craft room too

I always wanted to try them but at the same time always feared that it will not stick or last for long time ... am I just being silly?

It properly sticks down and to remove would need some persistence to start peeling it off if you know what I mean. I could imagine this realistically lasting a few years - I know in my house it would get scuffed from kids brushing past it but if it was higher up like above a bed, I bet it would last for a long, long time.

Happy Homebird said...

No, I didn't as I have no patience :) If I'd have put it in the kitchen though, I'd have given the wall a good clean first to get rid of any grease.

Happy Homebird said...

It was easy to do and for the instant effect I thought they were brilliant. I want one for my bedroom once I've decorated.

Happy Homebird said...

I want one for above the bed too, probably one of the branches with birds on.

Agata Pokutycka said...

Thank you for this details. It is clearing up most of my worries about it.

I think these are really good if you want a change but cannot face a full room redecoration. I like the quirky ones especially for a child or students room.
