Decorating a Child’s Bedroom from Toddler to Teen

As children grow, they change. You can bet that the little girl obsessed with Frozen today will be fawning over her favorite singers in a few years. And while Batman and Thor are fresh in a little boy’s imagination right now, sooner than you know famous sports heroes will be taking over. No matter what age they are, kids’ want their rooms to reflect their interests. When decorating a child’s bedroom, there are lots of ways to show off their preferences. Posters and bedding are usually where parents begin, but there are so many more options. Here are four ideas to get you started…

Surrounding your child with what they love is easy with wallpaper. Today, you can find wallpaper depicting everything from Disney princesses and Marvel comic characters to jungle animals and sports motifs. Plus, the growing availability of peel-and-stick wallpaper makes updating your child’s bedroom decor over the years a snap.

For something even more personal, you might consider decorating a child’s bedroom with a custom wall mural. Some of our favorites picture sports players bursting from the wall or whole rooms made to look like stadiums or arenas. If you go this route, you’ll want to be confident that your child will love it for a long time because it’s definitely an investment. Often it’s best to avoid picturing your child’s favorite sports player (players do tend to get traded and kids’ idolization of a specific player can be short-lived) and go with something a little more generalized.

A child’s room is his or her personal space, so it only makes sense for the decor to be personalized. What are some fun ways to do that? Try decorating a child’s bedroom with his or her own artistic expressions. For younger kids, that could mean dressing the walls with handprints. Simply dip your child’s hands in paint and place them on the wall in a random pattern. Or showcase your little Picasso’s budding talent by framing your child’s artwork and hanging it around the room.

Another way to foster and feature your child’s creativity is by including a chalkboard wall. From toddler to teen, this decor element will surely be a hit. Your child can draw, write poems, play tic-tac-toe, or do whatever his or her heart desires. Not a fan of chalk? Don’t worry! You can use dry-erase paint for the same effect.
