When decorating their kid’s room, many parents long to transform the space into a creative and magical getaway. But they are frustrated by a lack of artistic ability, budget considerations, and a fear of just how much work they imagine would be involved. And many live in apartments or have other reasons why they cannot paint the walls, so they don’t know where to start. Vinyl wall decals are the perfect solution.
With high-quality wall decal stickers and our tips, you can create extraordinary kids’ wall decor on a budget! Best of all, the wall decals won’t damage your walls or paint. Even the most dramatic and intricate wall decals for kids can be removed without causing damage, meaning you can easily update your child’s wall decor as they grow up.
Children spend most of their time at home, and more than one-third of their lives are spent in their room. Using colorful, imagination-stirring wall decals to personalize your child’s room can inspire greater confidence and boost their self-image. Your kid’s wall decor can change as they mature. Start with nursery wall decals that create the restful, fun style you think will appeal to your newborn. As little ones become toddlers, developing their own opinions, favorite colors, and interests, you can easily adjust and change the vinyl wall decals to new ones that better express your child’s emerging and growing personality. Let kids have some say in their room decor — they’ll love it!
Start by looking at the pre-packaged wall decal sets available online. You’ll be amazed at the many styles available! You’ll discover a vast array of wall decals for kids, including dinosaur wall decals, cowboys, flowers, rainbows, space rockets, planets, superheroes, princesses, dragons, and so much more! Many come in sets that combine several vinyl wall decals on the same theme. For instance, Spiderman wall decal sets may include several spider webs, an image of Peter Parker, and a couple of Spiderman in action sequences.
If painting your child’s wall is an option, it can add color to enhance the look of the kids’ wall decals you choose. Maybe choose dark blue on a single wall as the background for space-themed wall decals or those depicting whales and other marine life. Choose a pale sunny yellow or a sky blue for the backdrop to birds in flight or a large, leafy tree. Green walls are ideal for wall decals featuring a jungle scene, dinosaurs, horses, etc.
Just a note about applying vinyl decals to freshly painted walls: some paints can take six to eight weeks to fully dry and completely cure. Plan on waiting at least eight weeks after painting before applying wall decals.
There are vinyl wall decals that can serve as a chalkboard, and others that act like whiteboards. Create an interactive art portion of your child’s wall, perhaps surrounded by another decal that looks like a picture frame or maybe an art easel. Provide plenty of colored chalk or dry erase markers and unleash your budding artist to draw on the wall (decals)!
If your child’s bed has no headboard, you can add one with your use of wall decals. It may be the ornate headboard of a princess’s bed. Or maybe it’s no headboard at all but a loving unicorn or dragon that embraces your child as they sleep together.
