Peel-and-stick decorating offers a quick, easy way to turn a visual eyesore into a point of pride.

A new view

Ugly views and lack of privacy are two of the most common problems in homes. Static-cling films go up with a little water and can be easily pulled off for clean removal. Look for such films at Decorativefilm.com or Emma Jeffs window films ( 2Jane.com). Products range from films that imitate frosted or stained glass to iridescent and semi-transparent products accented with leaves, ferns or flowers. Tile “tattoos” let you add accents in the bath or kitchen.

Off the wall

It might be hard to make a commitment to wallpaper, but check out the many choices available from Tempapers. All are repositionable and easily removable ($98 roll, $5 samples, Tempaperdesigns.com).

Of course, you don’t have to cover entire walls. Decals can offer a burst of style without taking over ( wallpops.com, wallmonkeys.com). Want to give kids’ rooms a fun touch? Try Wallies for decals ( Wallies.com).

Is your bed too plain?Add a rustic headboard wall decal ($98, Urbanoutfitters.com). Or buy the twin-size Antique Flourish headboard in pink and orange for $140, or the queen-size Chinoiserie in fuchsia ($175) from Glam-A-Peel ( glam-a-peel.com).
