Children's room wallpapers - welcome to the wallpaper shop of unlimited imagination
Once upon a time, the choice of kids' bedroom wallpapers was so simple: Pink wallpaper for girls, blue wallpaper for boys, teddy bears and balloons, and a few more cutesy motifs that have always been popular with children - and that was that!
Today, the choice might be a lot less simple - but it is also so much more exciting! Contemporary kids' wallpaper design is all about action, reaction, stimulating the senses, enabling children to learn by experiencing new things, helping them to understand boundaries and priorities.
And those multi-layered reasons are the basis for our kids' wallpapers which cover the wide spectrum of all stages of child development. Popular classics like elephant wallpaper or pirate wallpaper are of course present in our range, but in new and innovative incarnations. Extraterrestrial, out-of-this-world wallpaper designs for children are as much part of our assortment of wonderful wall decorations for kids as clear lines and playful patterns. Discover the universe of design options for your child's room.
Your children's bedrooms change as they get older
When a child is born, all he or she needs is warmth, affection, love and security. A child's room plays an important part as it is their own little realm - even though babies will of course not be aware of this for a little while. Everything is new, exciting, the baby starts discovering its own self, its eyes and ears, its immediate surroundings. During the first few years of life, light colours and a cosy atmosphere are the most important factors in kids bedroom wallpapers. Patterns and motifs can be concrete or abstract - but they are always befitting for children.
As the child grows older, stronger prime colours come into play, and kids develop interests, favourite themes and characters which can be reflected in the kids' room wall décor. Wallpapers become the backdrop for imaginative play, an inspiring landscape for exploration. Patterns and motifs of kids' wallpapers come alive in their imaginations.
But your child's room is not just a space for exciting adventures and play experiences; it also needs to provide relaxing atmosphere. Children need space to get away from parents, school, the craziness of everyday life.
When they reach school age, kids also need an appropriate environment to do their homework and study. Learning aptitude and concentration can be fostered by choosing the right children's room wallpaper. Increasingly, friends and acquaintances will come and visit and the focus turns to a more representative character of the room.
Once they reach puberty, the former "kids' room" becomes more of a refuge, a private oasis where secrets are kept and friends are received. The child's room becomes a teenager's room - and the wallpaper should reflect their budding personality. Provocative patterns, motifs and colours or unusual materials and structures are de rigeur when it comes to teen bedrooms. Anything goes - just as long as it is not to the parents' taste! More information can be found in our tongue-in-cheek Guide Blog Cool Wallpapers for Teenagers.
Our design wallpapers for children and teenagers meet the requirements for all topics and interests, age groups and genders and allow for creative development.
Wallpapers are changing with the times
As children grow and develop in many small steps and stages, the interior design for children's rooms is constantly in flux. In fact, children's and teenagers' rooms are the spaces where wallpapers are changed most frequently. One of the reasons for this fact is that interests and favourite topics change as the child grows older. Children's rooms wall décor is often subject to intense use and, as a result, to a lot of wear and tear, spills and stains. As a result, the appearance of wallpapers in kids' rooms will suffer more quickly and it will look worn and tired.
Our extensive range of wall treatments for children's rooms is available in paper-based or fleece (non-woven) varieties. This differentiation indicates different carrier materials and characteristics. Recycled paper is the basis for paper-based wall décor, whilst non-woven wallpaper for kids is made from cellulose and textile fibres. The main differences between the two types of wallpaper are the processing method and the ability to retain their dimensions.
Paper-based wallpapers require pasting of individual lengths of wallpaper as well as a specific soaking time. Non-woven wallpapers can be applied directly to the wall and there are no waiting times. For frequent wallpaper changes, fleece or non-woven varieties are of course an easier choice as they can be pulled off in a dry state and without leaving any traces behind, which obviously saves a lot of time and effort. As for paper-based wall décor for children, there are those types that need to be soaked and then scraped off, but also those that can be removed from the wall in a dry state. This means that the paper (under-) layer remains on the wall.
Popular surface materials for children's wallpapers
The decorative top layer of fleece or paper wallpapers can be made from PVC, high-quality paper, natural or textile materials. Special metal or effect foils or shimmering glass beads create fascinating light reflections and multi-dimensional structures.
The clear favourite amongst kids' room wallpapers is vinyl wallpaper with a washable and water-resistant PVC surface coating. In children's rooms, they are a top choice when it comes to cleaning and durability.
The older the children, the higher their requirements for kids' rooms wallpapers. Beyond just patterns, motifs and colours, special effects and structures are given more importance. We cater for all those demands with our beautiful metal wallpapers or effect foil wallpapers, flock wallpapers and leather imitation wallpapers, any of which will create the basis for a stylish teenage room. Please note that the delicate surface materials of textile wallpapers, natural wallpapers, glass bead wallpapers and flock wallpapers are not suitable for cleaning with a damp cloth and are also more prone to damages.
