Using Wallpaper for Childrens Rooms

Wallpaper for kids' rooms is more popular these days than it has ever been. Many moms and dads like the idea of relaxing with their baby in a peaceful environment and giving them some decorative touches with their walls that are pleasing to the eye and visually stimulating for them to use for much longer than the traditional paper and cardstock patterns that had previously been the norm. Today there are wallpapers for your crib, your toddler's bed, your kitchen, your bathroom and even your car.

Wallpaper is certainly not a new concept as wallpaper was used for centuries to decorate royal palaces and churches, and it remains popular today for the exact same reasons. It's a great way to provide a visually stimulating environment for your little ones to play in and it also helps you to preserve your babies original environment and reduce any potential for change when they grow up and move out onto the real world. If you haven't got any wallpapers for children's rooms in your collection then you should really do something about that right now!

In the early 1900's wallpaper for children's rooms was very simple in design. There were no color schemes or patterns and the main wall color was white with very few accents or decorative items on the wall. You could choose solid colors but if you wanted a little more flair then you could always add a bit of colored wallpaper to your nursery or the bedroom ceiling (a great way to liven things up if the parents are having a baby shower).

Over the years since then wallpapers for children's rooms have become much more elaborate with more themes and decorative elements being added. More people are choosing to decorate their girls' room with prints of famous cartoon characters such as Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Barbie and all the Disney princesses. Some of the more unique patterns that you can find for your daughter's room include a checkerboard pattern, a floral print, butterflies or even just free hand painted pictures. Wallpapers for girls' rooms aren't always focused on princesses, although that is one of the most popular themes among decorators today.

Another popular theme that is gaining popularity today for your child's bedroom is that of cars. There are many different styles of wallpaper to choose from for your child's room including those with clear sections, those with cute little cars printed on them and then there are those that have full size cars printed on them, complete with wheels and hubcaps. Another nice idea is to choose wallpaper that includes both a picture frame and a car. Often times you will find that there is a matching chair set that goes along with the wallpaper and this combination is especially nice if you have a boy's bedroom where the boys may have their bed facing the television, after all boys really like to watch sports and race cars.

Wallpapering a kid's room is not difficult when you use the right colors. Although boys may really enjoy bright and bold colors, keep in mind that pink and blue looks good on girls as well and there are some great neutral colors that look great as well. To add some spice to your decor, try adding a little drama to your room by hanging a kids chair or stool in your favorite color. Adding a little wall decor such as a hanging chair add just the right touch to give your room a nice punch of color and life and it's something that you can continue to add to as your little one grows older.

As you can see, there are endless possibilities when it comes to decorating and selecting wallpapers for nursery decor. When selecting wallpapers for your childrens rooms, make sure you select something that they will enjoy over time and that you can change out as their little ones grow older. You will also want to make sure that the colors are easy to keep clean and are suitable for the age of your little ones and your chosen theme of nursery decor.
