Kid's Room Decor: Creative Ways To Make Your White Walls Pop

Have some spare wall space in your kid's room or nursery? Here are some ideas of how you might want to use them to add flair to the room

You’ve been tirelessly working to redesign your kid’s room/your new nursery and it seems like everything is falling into place. Until you notice that there's some extra wall space that's just cannot be left bare. Fret not, we have all kinds of ideas of what you may want to do with it to give your little one’s room that extra pop of “Wow!”

Chalkboard paint

Chalkboard paint is exactly what it sounds like, and you don't have to be a serious crafter to use it (though, you will want to show it off on Pinterest later). It can be used in front hallways for messages to and from guests, in kitchens for meal plans, grocery lists and reminders, or anywhere else. In a child's bedroom or playroom kids can be creative and change how they use it as they get older. Available at most home improvement stores.

Wall decal stickers

Gone are the days of borders, frames and stencils, for the most part. But in place of what might once have been wallpaper, there are removable decals to match any room. Whether you have a fairy theme or a nautical one, you'll find something your kid will love. Check out these colourful foxes from Bed Bath and Beyond

Chalkboard decals

This might be cheating, as it's a hybrid of the first two suggestions, but they were too cute not to mention. Less work than chalkboard paint, but more versatile than straightforward sticker decals, are chalkboard decals. Etsy sells adorable bunnies and fortune cats.

You may have photos or paintings you're looking to hang, but there's no reason you can't find some modern looking prints to hang on those walls too. Many are sold these days to appeal to babies and their parents. Take a look at this cheeky print from Chapters Indigo.

Growth charts

A practical and lovely-to-look-at addition, growth charts affirm that it was just yesterday that your little one was much smaller. No need to write out a measuring tape or keep only pencil markings when you can find ones that are ready to go.

Fairy lights

Add some magic to a bare or decorated wall with fairy lights. Not suited to nurseries, but a hit with older children.

Garlands and bunting can be fun as party decor, but will also add charm year-round. Make them at home with felt or paper cut outs, or buy at a stationary store or online. Bunting comes in all kinds of themes, from unicorns to colourful leaves—or as versitle as a colourful strand of pom poms. Best of all, if you're making them yourself, it's a cheap and (relatively) easy way to change the look of the whole room!
