Fun And Easy Decorating With Wall Decals For Kids Rooms

Z.E.N.s Airplane Wall Decals

Airplane wall decals on Z.E.N.’s walls

Like many parents, I was faced with the challenge of decorating Z.E.N.’s room with age appropriate visuals and imagery. As children grow, decorations can become outdated and lack the stimuli that a child needs to develop effectively. I discovered a great way to provide visual stimulus while having fun by incorporating the use of wall decals. Since Z.E.N. likes airplanes, I chose airplane themed wall decals and he absolutely loved them.

The popularity of using wall decals has grown in recent years with advancements in printing technology. One of the many benefits of using wall decals for kids rooms is that they can be easily removed when the child outgrows or becomes bored with them and replaced with more appropriate words and images.

Wall decals for kids rooms are manufactured in a variety of shapes and sizes that are appropriate for a number of different ages. There are nursery wall decals and stickers that can be used up until the teenage years. Using these can save a parent a lot of time and money they would have invested in a decorative paint job that would eventually need to be painted over. These decals are available at a number of stores and online dealers. They can even be wall decals for kidsmade on a home computer if you purchase the proper printing paper and materials. This way, the child and parent can work together to custom make their own design.

Another great use of wall decals for kids rooms is to provide your child with inspirational messages in the form of decorative words. Messages of inspiration can be purchased whole or letter-by-letter in variety of fonts, sizes and styles. These messages can be placed on the walls and ceiling to inspire your child to become self-actualized and confident. In the earlier years, letters can be placed on the walls to help the child learn their alphabet and to write the shapes of the letters properly. As the child grows, these letters can be formed into simple words and then finally into more advanced messages as the child reaches their teen years. Decals are a great way to avoid having a room that is age inappropriate for a child.

The decals are easily applied and can be done without the help of professional decorators. Smaller decals can be applied by one parent but with the larger decals, it is best to have two people present, so they are applied properly. You simply clean the surface of the wall or ceiling, making certain it is free of any dust or debris and then apply the decal. Decals are as easily removed as they are applied, and if manufactured properly they will leave no residue from glues or adhesives. Wall decals for kids rooms are very simple to maintain and clean as well. Many of them can be wiped down with a wet sponge if they become soiled or marked up with fingerprints. They can also be reused by replacing them back on the original material that they were adhered to. Wall decals for kids rooms are a fun and exciting way to decorate and to help your child’s imagination to grow.
