Let’s Get Literal! Decorate with Words in Your Home

What’s in a word? Pictures may be pretty, but sometimes to get a point across you just need to spell it out – literally! Here are six ways to decorate your home with words: 

Welcome mats. First impressions are important, so why not start off on the right foot with an amusing welcome mat? These days, you can find doormats that will say just about anything, from the classic, “Come on in!” to the more cheeky, “Oh no, not you again!”

Wall decals. Wall decals don’t have to be permanent – that’s why they’re a great go-to decorating idea for the playroom. Your kids can be inspired by the magical words of Dr. Seuss without you stressing about how you’re going to remove the decal later on. Wall quotes aren’t just for the playroom, though, they’re great in the kitchen and dining room, too.  

Shower curtain. There aren’t too many places in the home that allow for a hint of playfulness like your bathroom shower curtain. Tip: If you’re having trouble reading your favorite line, it might be time to give your curtain a good cleaning.

Pillows. Throw pillows are the perfect way to spell out your favorite phrase without being too overbearing (we’re looking at you, giant wall quote).

Coasters. You may think no one uses coasters anymore, but think again! Keep drink rings off your table with a quote from your favorite author or movie. If you really love the quote, you may actually remember to protect your table.

Mantles. Fireplace mantle displays are rarely permanent – they’re usually the hot spot for holiday decorations. They’re also the perfect place to put a one-liner or just one word! Go with a framed version of your favorite poem or a wooden sign.
