How To & DIY
With the new school year just around the corner, there are plenty of opportunities to show off some personal style. One of the most overlooked places to decorate is one that students visit every single day: their locker! Something so useful doesn't have to be drab and uninspiring. Here's a great idea: use RoomMates wall decals and wallpaper to turn that boring old locker into a real fashion statement.
Check out our tips below to take any plain metal locker from drab to fab, all without causing any damage or breaking the bank. Have a locker decorating tip of your own to contribute? Let us know and we'll add it to this page!
Tip #1: Make it functional
Add a RoomMates dry erase wall decal to the locker door. It's great for jotting down notes or important reminders between classes.
Our Dry Erase Sheet can be cut to fit any size or space, like the inside of a locker door. You can even combine multiple sheets to create one large dry erase surface!
Tip #2: Show off your style
Instantly personalize a boring locker with RoomMates removable stickers to create a locker that shows off your unique style and interests.
RoomMates wall decals are easy to remove and won't damage the locker or leave behind any sticky residue at the end of the school year. Just re-apply them to the liners and use them again in another location... or in next year's locker!
Tip #3: Wallpaper it! (Really!)
Using wallpaper is a a great way to decorate that boring locker. It's simple: measure the locker door and cut the paper to the correct dimensions, then use magnets or poster putty to secure it in place.
To avoid upsetting the school board, we advise against applying wallpaper to a school locker with a permanent adhesive.
Don't be afraid to experiment! RoomMates removable wall decals offer a ton of options for junior decorators who want to customize their locker. Try our peel & stick mirrors, wall charms, dry erase board wall stickers, and magnetic organizers. Or try combining the ideas we've listed above: for example, why not add wallpaper to the back and coordinating wall decals to each side?
With just a little creativity and some inexpensive supplies, it's easy to transform any locker into a personalized, stylish hideaway.
