Decorating a child’s bedroom might be the most fun decorating process because a child’s bedroom can be anything they want it to be. There are no obligations to make it match the rest of your home, being their own personal space. So when they ask for hot pink dots or lime green stripes, you can say yes. If you’re thinking there is no way that you can paint a dump truck on the wall, consider opting for some wallpaper instead. With all the options available these days, it’s easy to find something fun to liven up your kid’s bedroom. Take a look at these 10 wallpapers for kids to get you started.
Animals are a great theme for kid’s bedrooms because they can grow from infants to children without changing the scheme. This foxy wallpaper fits this adventure bedroom perfectly.
If you want a theme that will take them from babyhood through their teenage years, animals can still help you achieve the style. But opt for wallpaper that depicts lifelike creatures instead of cartoon images.
Most little boys are drawn to all things technological and have the wildest imaginations about spaceships and robots. So covering their walls in robot wallpaper will definitely encourage the crazy creations and imaginative play that you want your child to have.
On the flip side, so many girls are drawn to pink and sparkles and ruffles and frills. A perfectly pink wallpaper with shooting stars will give her an unlimited amount of wishes, which is just what a young girl needs.
Sometimes the extremely smart kids need extra stimulation to help them grow and learn at the rate they are comfortable with. Help them learn about the world by putting a giant world map on their wall. You’ll probably want to leave it there even after they’re grown and gone.
For the child who knows what they want to be from a very early age, encourage their interest by wallpapering their bedroom their chosen pattern. Like trucks for a kid who loves construction or fish for a kid who loves the ocean.
Speaking of the ocean, isn’t this coral wallpaper lovely? It’s almost floral but when you look closer, it isn’t. Help your child find the unexpected by choosing a wallpaper that isn’t what it first seems. Anyone who enters the room will be delighted.
Those aren’t just any birds. Those are parakeets. A bird known for making the best of their circumstances. If you’re all about finding meaning in your home’s decor, put a wallpaper in your child’s bedroom that you can draw a metaphor from for teaching purposes.
You can’t go wrong with black and white, even in a child’s bedroom. A geometric pattern is fun for the wall and makes things easy when they decide they want to switch their decor from yellow to pink to blue to green in a week.
Of course you can also go the opposite way and give them a rainbow to begin with! The geometric pattern is neutral and can follow them through all stages of life while the colors allow for all kinds of themes as they grow.
