When it comes to decorating a child’s room you want to make sure it is safe for them as well as cute. While traditional art has sharp edges and can be damaged by curious hands, there are many other ways to decorate the walls. Here are some kid friendly decorating ideas:
1. Wall Stickers – While we can’t all be artists and make great murals with paint, we can use stickers to create the same effect. Fun giant stickers can offer a great way to adorn your child’s walls without the danger of sharp objects or the permanent effects of paint. Just apply the stickers and enjoy. Then you can remove them and change the décor in your child’s room as they grow.
2. Posters – Another inexpensive art option is posters. Poster can come in a wide variety of styles from your child’s favorite superheroes or music to retro or art pieces. Why splurge on a genuine oil painting when your child could take a crayon to it? Instead help your child enjoy art in a stress-free way with inexpensive posters.
3. Chalk Art – Many parents have embraced the idea of their child writing on walls with chalk wall paint. Instead of traditional paint, some children’s rooms have chalk paint on one or all the walls that allow the child to create their own wall art. From colorful scribbles to cool words for teens, chalk paint is an enduring decoration item that your child can enjoy throughout their lifetime.
4. Fabric – What can be safer than soft fabrics on the wall. From soft stuffed animals designed to hang on the wall to beautiful quilts to fabric name art there are many ways to use fabric to decorate your child’s room. It is easy to change out and update too as they grow.
5. Fun Patterns – Last on the list is an easy way to make any room stand out. Painting fun patterns with cool colors on the wall can make your child’s room come alive. Carnival stripes, fun polka dots, chevrons, swirls, and other patterns not only make the walls stand out but also take the place of wall art for a fun a safe children’s room.
These are just a few of the ideas you can use to make your child’s room look its best while still being kid friendly. Check out your options and see what you can come up with!
