Wallpaper for children’s room: How & What to choose?

What colors to choose for a wallpaper in a child’s room?

For the color of the wallpaper, if you want the room to appear larger, choose white or light-colored paint combined with a pattern to match the color: white background or light color and light patterns.
If you are lucky enough to have a good-sized room, anything goes! We often think, wrongly, that only light colors should be used in a nursery. Without wallpapering all the walls in bright red, you can instead liven it up by wallpapering one wall with a patterned wallpaper or a children’s wallpaper in bright colors, and keep a softer solid color on the other walls.
Red, purple, pink, green, blue wallpaper, there are no rules, the important thing is rather not to overload decoration and toys so that the atmosphere of the room is soothing and relaxing, thus promoting your baby falling asleep.

How to choose a wallpaper that is safe for children’s room?

 As parents, it is our responsibility to ensure that your child is safe and secure as they grow up. Here are some examples of wallpapers that we prefer not to be used or can be used in a child’s room : 

  • Traditional wallpapers that are made 100% from fabric should be avoided at all costs, they emit small particles of polyester after a while ( especially in a sunny room ), too many chemical toners used by soaking the fabric multiple times, it leaved bad smell ( worst than regular paint ) and you will have to leave a room breathable several days until the bad smell comes out.
  • Vinyl wallpapers : all vinyl wallpapers have a special coating to protect the wallpaper from the sun rays & dust that degrades after a while, this type of wallpaper is not recommended for children under the age of 10.
  • Non Woven Wallpapers : This type is recommended for the children room because they are safe to use, have no smell, lasts longer in any room and don’t emit any particles even if they are exposed in the sun, when the wallpaper is degraded, it can be recycled and remade again as any recycled fabric made from cotton.

Let’s talk about non woven fabric, that is a combination of two types of fibers, and these fibers are evenly stretched across it to provide soft and breathable fabric. This type of fabric is not woven, knitted or crocheted and it does not need any special machines to produce it. Non-woven wallpaper is made with cotton fibers which are thoroughly separated from each other in a special thermal process that is both eco friendly & safe for any room, not just children’s room.

Where to put the wallpaper?

The headboard: trend

You have several options for hanging wallpaper in the children’s room.
You can cover an entire wall, the ideal being the one behind the bed, so your child can fix his gaze on the patterns to fall asleep and have sweet dreams. You can also partially line this wall, by covering only a width slightly larger than the bed, up to the bedside tables for example, and thus create a warm headboard.
If you have a high ceiling, to create a more cocooning room, line the bottom of the wall (up to about a meter high) to create a base. You also have the option of creating a basement, conversely, by lining the top of the wall and leaving the bottom of the wall painted. Thus, the base will reduce the height of the walls and thus create a cozy nest.

Single Roll: the decorative touch

If you want to complete your atmosphere with a decorative touch, then opt for the one roll format. Two strips of wallpaper, placed symmetrically on either side of the bed, behind the bedside tables for example, thus create a frame around the bed. You can also create a small play corner, by wallpapering one or two strips on a wall behind a teepee or a toy box.
