Disney home decor features

Style

With the abundance of Disney home decor on the market, you truly have your pick when it comes to style. What does style refer to in this context? The expression of the piece. In other words, the effect or emotion it conveys. The style of decor might be cute, humorous, artistic, sophisticated, literal or abstract, whimsical or quirky.

If you’re after a more grown-up effect, pieces with an abstract style might be a good fit for your home. Simply put, abstract means the design is vague and open to interpretation, as opposed to overt and specific. Abstract decor incorporates elements of a theme, style or story without interpreting them exactly.

Material

The type of material in Disney home decor construction depends largely on the type of piece. For example, figurines are typically made of porcelain, glass, resin or ceramic. Rugs are usually constructed of polyester, acrylic, nylon, cotton or wool. Wall prints and paintings might be constructed with a plaster, wood or canvas base.

Size

It’s important to choose Disney home decor that’s an appropriate size for the space in which you plan to display it. If a piece is too small or too large for its surroundings, it could create a look that’s too sparse or too cluttered.

Disney home decor FAQ

Is Disney home decor only suitable for children? 

A. This isn't the case at all. Yes, a great deal of Disney home decor is designed for children. You can recognize these pieces by their overt, whimsical and cute style. They often prominently feature Disney characters. Bright colors are another trademark. Adult Disney home decor, on the other hand, is typically simpler and more streamlined when it comes to the design. Rather than depicting characters, it might focus on symbolic representations like Peter Pan's hat or the glass-enclosed rose from "Beauty and the Beast."

How much Disney home decor is too much?

A. Decorating is all about achieving a balanced aesthetic. An excessive number of pieces, regardless of whether it's Disney decor or a different kind, is never advised. In this way, decor is almost like jewelry: less is more. As a general rule, if the space looks like it's bursting with decorations, you've gone too far.

Which Disney home decor should I get?

Best of the best Disney home decor

Disney's Mickey Mouse Medallion Indoor Outdoor Rug: available at Kohl's

Our take: A medallion motif featuring Mickey Mouse ears makes this rug both playful and sophisticated.

What we like: This rug in gray or blue is a grown-up decor piece for Disney fans, with a medallion motif composed of Mickey Mouse ears. Since the rug is made of durable flat-woven pile and UV stabilized olefin yarn and is resistant to mold and mildew, it's suitable for use inside or outside.

What we dislike: At least one buyer felt the color of the rug in person didn't match the online images.

Best bang for your buck Disney home decor

Disney Frozen Peel and Stick Wall Stickers: available at Kohl's

Our take: These cute stickers depicting characters from "Frozen" give children a nice way to get creative with their space.

What we like: You and your children can easily apply and remove these stickers, thanks to the peel-and-stick design. They feature characters from "Frozen," some solo and others interacting. And while the adhesive backing is strong, it won't leave sticky residue behind when it's time to remove the stickers.

What we dislike: One sticker fell off the wall, according to one buyer, who was otherwise pleased with the set.

Honorable mention Disney home decor 

Lladró Nao by Lladro Cinderella Collectible Disney Figurine: available at Macy's

Our take: Designed by a renowned figurine master, this piece depicts Cinderella resplendent in her ball gown.

What we like: Crafted of porcelain, the details on this figurine have been meticulously rendered and finely wrought. The handmade production of the piece is evident. Cinderella wears her world-famous ball gown, created especially for her by her fairy godmother. In one hand, Cinderella cradles two flowers with creamy petals.

What we dislike: The price point of the figurine is high and porcelain is delicate, so it might not be the best fit for a home with rambunctious children or pets.
