Wall decals are a fun way to enliven a child's bedroom without committing to a permanent paint job. They are colorful and removable, and best of all, kids love them. Learn how to hang wall decals for kids' rooms to quickly and easily create a playful space.
Hang a wall decal shaped like a tree on the wall of a child's room. Install hooks and shelves on the branches to provide a place to hang coats, hats, fairy wings, and ribbons—anything that might otherwise be on the floor. Your child might be more inspired to keep her room picked up when she can choose the perfect branches for hanging and storing her items.
Choose a border decal and run it halfway up the wall all around your child's room to create a wallpaper-like dynamic feeling. You can also make your own border by buying several designs and repeating them all around the room. Mix and match decal sets with animals and flowers, or choose polka dots in various sizes and colors.
Use letter decals to create your child's name, or the names of everyone in the family, over a dresser or bed. Alternatively, create an alphabet wall by placing each letter decal next to a decal with an image that begins with the same letter. This can make a fun bedtime ritual of practicing the alphabet together.
When you find a cute set of decals, let them dictate how you design the rest of the room. Choose furniture, curtains and bedding to coordinate with the decals. Paint walls and install flooring to set off the design. If you choose to remove the decals somewhere down the line, you'll still have a coordinated room design. Wall scenes can be groups of airplanes, forest tableaus, modern graphics of plants, racetracks, farms, and the circus. There are a wide range of options available to inspire your design.
