Increasingly in vogue in interior decoration, the wallpaper also conquers the children’s room. A special environment, a world apart from the rest of the house, full of games and accessories, which requires a décor sewn around the small tenants, experimenting with fantasies and patterns.
How to choose the right wallpaper
Create the right atmosphere who will live the room is the starting point in choosing the right wallpaper, without worrying too much about the style of the other spaces. The best thing to do to customize the children’s room is to study the decoration of the envelope (the walls) together with the furniture, in order to obtain a harmonious composition.
If the floor coverings are already present but the furniture is not yet there e the walls are white, you can freely choose how to embellish them. Instead for those who want to intervene only on the walls but have already placed the furniture or painted the walls in bright colors, it is good to start from the style of the latter: a traditional or modern, Nordic or folk mood and the dominant color of the painting, will guide the choice of the most suitable wallpaper motif and will affect the portion of the wall to be covered.
Online and in physical stores you can find papers from all kinds of parts, so when you start the search to decorate the walls of the bedroom it is useful to already have a clear reference of theatmosphere you want to achieve (cheerful, relaxing, romantic, etc.) and then focus on the theme you want to develop. Pinterest is a useful support in this phase: creating a bulletin board in which to collect palettes, patterns and bedrooms that reflect our taste, helps a lot to compose a personal moodboard.
Furthermore, the websites of the wallpaper manufacturers simplify the search by dividing the proposals by topics and, at times, allow you to enter the size of the wall where in order to simulate the final result. A pretty good test to avoid second thoughts.
The choice of decoration is very subjective and largely depends from the age of the child, from his passions and the final effect you want to achieve. There are wallpapers for all tastes: stylized and floral patterns, trompe l’oeil and cartoon effect. Abstract shapes are highly recommended: they do not link to a precise concept or theme but give character and color to the room without binding them over time and the growth of the child.
Where to apply wallpaper in the children’s room
Better not to apply it on all the walls because it could weigh down the space, but I only know one, that behind the bed or in one niche. An original idea consists of dividing the walls in two, painting the lower part (which is the one that will be covered most by the furniture) and applying the wallpaper on the upper part of only one wall, the main one.
Wallpapers can also be applied to furniture to change their appearance and to renew them. Geographic maps and cartoon libraries for cover the doors of an old wardrobe they will allow you to save on the purchase of new furniture and completely transform the room.
Self-adhesive papers, for DIY lovers
A less demanding alternative to classic wallpaper, the adhesive wallpapers they are certainly very valid and to be taken into consideration for rented apartments and for those who want to remove and apply them without professional intervention. They spread without adding glue because they are self-adhesive and can be removed without damaging the underlying wall.
