Patterned wallpaper can have a dramatic effect to the appearance of a kid’s bedroom and it’s the easiest way of creating a theme. You’re not stuck for choice and it also means you don’t have to agonise over choosing paint colours that look great on a colour card but don’t work that well in-situ.
Wallpaper can be expensive but you don’t have to paper all the walls, a feature wall can be just as effective and you’ll only need to buy a couple of rolls, three at most. Doing it this way also avoids the problem of repetitive patterns becoming too busy or overbearing.
Repeat patterns featuring football emblems, Disney characters and the like are still very popular with youngsters, and probably always will be. But if you are determined to break away from the norm there still plenty of options. Slightly older kids and teens will also appreciate something a bit more original.
Below is a selection of what’s currently popular in the world of children’s wallpaper.
