If you don't know how to hang wallpaper perhaps you should test the water with some inexpensive baby wallpaper borders. They are self-adhesive and easy as pie to hang. For very little money, you can surround a baby boy's nursery with a cute border of puppies, giraffes or if you are decorating a room for a baby girl, perhaps bunnies, bows or a delicate flower fairy or two would be more appropriate.
BABY WALLPAPER MURALS
So what if mommy and daddy can't paint beautiful pictures? Nursery wallpaper murals may be the perfect thing for moms and dads with absolutely no artistic skills.
DECORATING THE WALLS in STAGES
Unless you get lucky and find a seasonal sale and find some discounted rolls or use a store coupon to reduce the price, you will find that wallpapering is more expensive than painting even if you hang the paper yourself. When the budget is tight it's tempting to paint rather than invest the time and financial resources in a more expensive wall covering. However, if you like the look and want to paper the walls of your baby's room but are worried about the expense; why not consider an accent wall or adding a chair rail and papering 2/3 of the wall rather than from the ceiling to the floor?
We have ideas for decorating the nursery walls in stages to lessen the risk of running out of money before the project is completed.
(1) Apply one coat of paint on the nursery walls and then:
(2) Hang a wallpaper border at chair rail or ceiling height
(3) Cover the accent wall with wallpaper to create a focal point in the room and save money
By decorating in steps there is less immediate demand on the budget.
IS NURSERY WALLPAPER a GOOD INVESTMENT
Even if budget is not a concern, consider how long you plan to stay in the same location. If there are plans to relocate before baby has outgrown the nursery's decor, investing in expensive nursery wall covering may not be the best use of your decorating dollar.
When the time comes to stage and list your home for sale, your realtor may advise that the baby's wallpaper be removed and the walls painted in neutral colors to make it appealing to a broader demographic.
There are also situations to consider if you plan to stay in the home such as whether or not you enjoy giving your home frequent makeovers. If you are a person that enjoys changing the décor, wallpaper may not be for you.
The look in a child's room tends to change with age. Choose your wall covering carefully. A neutral color with a subtle pattern is best so that it will grow and change according to the age of your son or daughter.
Nursery Wallpaper Ideas for Popular Baby Room Themes
Wallpaper for baby girls with a pattern of dainty bows in pink, damask or toile patterns are classic and never go out of style. Wallpaper for baby boys might feature a pattern of jungle animal scenes, baby farm animals for farm and nursery rhyme themes, cars and trucks or and super heroes.
