Practical Tips For Choosing The Best Wallpaper For Your Child’s Bedroom

If you are looking for a way to brighten up your child's bedroom, wallpaper will not disappoint. With all the colorful and fun patterns available, wallpaper is a refreshing change from painted walls and can reflect your child's unique personality. Following a few practical tips will help you select the wallpaper that works best for your child's bedroom.

Animal prints

Small children are naturally drawn to animal patterns, which makes them a great choice for toddlers and younger kids. Create a zoo experience in your child's bedroom by choosing a fun jungle print complete with monkeys, tigers, and giraffes to delight your child. Decorate the room with a solid bedspread and curtains to keep the room from appearing too busy.

Dots and stripes

Wallpaper with a dot or stripe design is a good choice if you do not want to replace the wallpaper for several years. Dots and stripes will brighten up a child's room and will work equally well when your child transitions into the teen years. Combine dots and stripes by using a striped pattern for an accent wall and dots for the remaining walls to create a room that overflows with fun and energy.

Educational styles

Is your child fascinated with maps or the solar system? Encourage their curiosity by choosing wallpaper with a world map or planet theme. Decorate the room with globes, planets, or star-themed accent pieces to match the walls and provide your child with a fun learning experience.

Bold patterns

Bold patterns can include anything from geometric patterns in bright colors to large floral or scenery designs. Bold patterns are best used as an accent wall, as they would overpower the room when used on all four walls. Choose one color from the bold print to use when selecting a solid wallpaper for the remaining walls to give the room a cohesive appearance.  

Character designs

Young children love wallpaper in prints of their favorite cartoon or movie character. However, their likes and dislikes often change fast. When deciding to use a character print, consider only wallpapering a main wall as a focal point and a solid wallpaper on the remaining walls to make it easier to switch character designs later if necessary.

From dots and stripes to florals and character designs, you will have plenty of options to choose from when you are shopping for wallpaper for your child's room. Wallpaper can create a fun and playful atmosphere in the room or be educational. Finding a wallpaper to match your child's personality will help you design a room your child will love spending time in.
