How to combine wallpaper in the children's room?

The process of sticking wallpaper in the nursery - an exciting event. It allows you to unleash your creativity and make the child’s room special.

What is important to consider?

Wall-paper, selected for combination, should have approximately the same thickness, although they may differ in texture. They are selected in such a way that they fill the space with light and make the room airy. This is, above all, the bright colors of the panels, which are able to visually increase the height of the ceiling and the width of the walls. To maintain this illusion it is worth confining to a small print.

It is important to pay attention to color, because bright and fairly catchy tones quickly get bored. In the future, they begin to annoy the child.

In order to feel comfort in the room, it is worth picking up products in delicate shades of color palette.

It is impossible to combine strong colors: for example, red and blue - being radically opposed colors, they can adversely affect the mood of the child.

Wallpaper should be chosen so that their bright accent does not prevail on the general background. It is desirable, but in excess creates a depressing atmosphere. However, he will not allow the child to concentrate, for example, doing homework. A large print will visually reduce the nursery space, and no combination will correct this.


Select the wallpaper you need based on the age group of the child. For example, it makes no sense to buy expensive wallpapers for a baby if repairs in an apartment with renovation of the lining are a matter of habit. There will be enough paper panels. It is important to understand that the contrast involves the use of a pattern with a print and a one-colored base.

No need for children's walls vinyl or textile wallpaper. The first of them are harmful, although quite practical, and the second option is very difficult to maintain, and it costs a lot. In addition, both varieties are more suitable for decorating adult rooms.

Look good on the walls of children's wallpaper, as well as the so-called liquid wallpaper,which smear on the walls after breeding and insisting, forming a variety of drawings on a pre-prepared patterns.

It is necessary to avoid making only one motley wallpaper of different patterns - this will not only overload the interior background, but also bring an atmosphere of confusion. Contrast when combined is selected in such a way that some wallpapers soften others. That is how the wall facing with a picture will look expressive.

You can purchase wallpaper companions, which initially have the same color range with accurate shades and a specific theme. Among such products, the buyer can choose options for the design of children's walls of different ages and gender.

Design ideas can be any:

  • accentuation of room zones;
  • wall panels;
  • decoration of the walls;
  • exhibition gallery.


With regards to the picture, it is worth considering that there is no need to glue on the walls. For example, there is no need to decorate a room with complex 3D wallpaper with an African theme.

It is impossible not to take into account the sex and age of children, because the same bears on the walls of a teenager’s room will look out of place.

At the same time, the adult themes are alien to children - such wallpapers will not be able to convey the desired atmosphere.

If you choose wallpaper with stripes and patterns as companions, then one type of panels should be simpler than others.

It is good to combine plain wallpaper with products:

  • striped;
  • geometric print;
  • panels with floral ornaments;
  • companions with a floral theme;
  • depicting cartoon characters or toys.

In some cases, children's rooms are not decorated with two, but with three wallpaper companions. In this case, as a rule, they take for the basis those that do not have a pattern or the simplest ones. For teenagers' rooms, the best solution for combining is the combination of plain panels with accent stripes with a thematic focus.

As a rule, the style is chosen based on the hobbies of the child. For example, it can be anime or some sketches of city landscapes, as well as the subject of glamor.

What's best?

Conventionally, the child’s room can be divided into 3 functional areas: playing, sleeping and working. However, this does not mean at all that it is necessary to select them all at once - such an approach is devoid of expressiveness, because instead of a stylish design you get the appearance of pasting walls with remnants left over from other rooms.You can select a maximum of two zones, however, and this should be done correctly.

For example, you can draw one of the walls with bright wallpaper and decorate with them the niches in the rack, which is located above the work table. At the same time, the main plane of the wall of the working area should be calm, monophonic. Further support can be done through curtains to match the colorful wallpaper. Such curtains will stand out against the background of plain and light walls.

You can accentuate the play zone with colorful wallpaper with a pattern. First, such a solution is practical and will contribute to the durability of wall cladding, masking random contamination. Secondly, the print is more appropriate in the zone of the child's games. Calm wallpapers are good for concentration.

To design was stylish and modern, you need to take into account the principle of combination. For example, patchwork technology on one wall together with plain wallpaper looks better than different wallpapers on each wall. It is more correct to accent a ledge or niche than to glue different strips onto the walls by alternating.

On the background of the carpet, which is a frequent element of the design of the nursery, this design will be heavy, as well as on the background of a colored stretch ceiling.

What is undesirable?

    It is not necessary to divide the room horizontally into several parts. It is not always that such a combination looks as it was intended, because this wallpaper combination often reduces the height of the walls visually. It is undesirable to combine wallpaper in the room for different age groups and an abundance of borders. Combined wallpaper for boys can, for example, indicate a space theme.

    It is worth forgetting about clowns - these ideas are often doomed to failure, as are huge drawings. The fact that an adult seems bright and fun may not like a child, and even more so a small one. The best ideas would be combined canvases with a single-color base, floral patterns: for girls with butterflies, flowers, and for boys from cars and airplanes to superheroes. A bright strip is undesirable, as are peas, as it creates a ripple in the eyes.

    Combine textural wallpaper with photo printing in a child teenager to decorate a recreation area.
