When you are decorating a child’s room it is important to make sure that the room is not only fun for them but also safe for them to play and roughhouse in. That means that they typical picture frames and framed art will not work. Instead, there are many other ways that you can decorate the walls of your child’s room. Here are some ideas:

1. Photo Stickers – I am sure you have seen ads for those giant wall stickers that printers can now make out of your own photos. What a great idea for a kid’s room! Have a life sized sticker of them dressed in their football or ballerina or soccer gear, playing along the wall. Have photos of family, friends and pets decorate the walls so that the child always feels loved and protected. Even cutouts of their favorite cartoon characters or sports heroes would be a great idea. Best of all these stickers can easily be removed from the wall as the children change their tastes.

2. Wall Art Stickers – Like the photo stickers, wall art stickers are easy to remove. However they also come in a variety of creative patters and fun decorative ideas. Have sheep jump over your baby’s crib or send your little princess off to play with a cluster of colorful butterflies. Even happy puppies and hungry giraffes are a part of this colorful wall art. You can find these online and at some home decor retailers.

3. Wooden Letters – Another fun way to decorate a child’s room is to put their name or a special word or phrase on the wall with wooden letters. You can paint the letters a happy color to make them stand out or go more subtle with a pale pastel shade. As an alternative you can also buy letter stickers and sticker phrases of famous sayings like “Love, Joy, Peace” or “Goodnight, Sleep Tight”. You can even paint your own saying on the wall if your handwriting is good enough!

Oversized Paintings Can Really Make A Statement in A Room. 

Consider making an oversized frame out of plywood, and stretch canvas over the frame which can be stapled at the back.  Art from as little as $20 dollars.  If they want to change it in a couple months, re-paint it white.

4. Wallpaper Murals –Wallpaper murals are an easy way to add a colorful wall to your child’s room. From the cool forest to a happy land of make believe, wallpaper murals come in a variety of styles to suit any décor. You can also just use a patterned wallpaper to give the room visual interest without such a bold statement.

5. Painted Murals – If you are artistically talented you can paint a mural in your child’s room. Anything from a jungle safari to an underwater journey make great murals and tons of fun for your child. Think about what your child is interested in and then go from there.

These are just a few ideas that you can use to help brighten up the walls of your child’s room without adding in dangerous elements like sharp frames and breakable glass. A kid’s room should be happy, colorful and uplifting so have fun and get creative!
