Not Your Granny’s Wallpaper: Spruce Up Your Kids Room With These Adorable Wallpaper Designs

Feature – Kids Wallpaper
Project Nursery / Wayfair

Deciding on the right kids wallpaper for your child’s bedroom can be agonizing. There are just so many options, it’s damn near impossible to narrow them down to the wallpaper you and your kid are willing to look at every day for the next … however many years. After all, wallpaper can be expensive, is relatively labor-intensive to install, and it’s somewhat of a commitment. After all, you can’t just switch it out like you could a bedding set, a throw rug, or nursery wall decor, plus you’ll want something that goes with your kid’s bed frame (especially if it’s a cute house bed or a cozy loft).

If wallpaper conjures memories of faded floral prints on your grandmother’s house, we’re happy to tell you that it’s come a long way from the ’80s and ’90s atrocities you probably grew up with (you know the stuff). Now, the best kids’ wallpaper transforms a regular room into a fun space that’s full of personality. It can be colorful, pretty, artsy, funny, cool, simple, bold, or texturized, but overall, it’s gotta be stylish. There’s no right or wrong wallpaper to choose — it’s whatever makes you and your kiddo happy.

And when it comes to the type of wallpaper you want to put up, you have choices. Traditional wallpaper requires paste and a roller brush to apply it to the wall. Peel and stick wallpaper is a great option for commitment-phobes because it’s easily removed and generally less expensive than the OG kind. (It’s basically like a giant sticker, only it shouldn’t damage the wall when it’s removed.) Wall murals are also fantastic for kids who change their minds frequently. They’re typically printed on a repositionable wall fabric material that can peel and stick, making less of a hassle for you if your child is indecisive.

To help narrow things down, we selected our top 14 favorite wallpaper options to decorate your big kid’s room. Scroll on for design inspo!

You and your kid will love this peel-and-stick abstract print featuring all kinds of fun images. Pretzels, paperclips, and planets, anyone?

The price reflects 2-foot by 4-foot panels and a neutral color palette means it won’t compete with other bold elements of the room.
