20 Wall Decals For Kids’ Rooms & Nurseries

Outfit your child’s room with colorful designs, fun characters, and more in an easy, non-permanent way.

Kids grow and change so fast, so it makes sense that their room decor will also change over the years. Especially if you don’t own your home and can’t re-paint or hang up wallpaper, using wall decals for kids’ rooms and nurseries is the perfect way to spruce up your space in a non-permanent way.

My two boys share a room, and as they’ve grown up, decorating has become a struggle. They certainly have different interests, and their two-year age gap means that while my 6-year-old is still very much into Paw Patrol, his big brother is “too cool” to have posters of Chase and Marshall plastered across his bedroom wall. Letting them each select a few different wall decals to hang above each of their beds has been a life-saver.

From using small geometric-shaped decals to create patterns or add a pop of color, to investing in larger mural-style decals that cover a vast majority of your child’s walls, there are plenty of wall decal options to choose from. Whether you’re outfitting your newborn’s nursery with nature scenes or making over your big kid’s room with a full space and stars motif, these wall decals are easy to apply and easy to change, so the possibilities are truly endless.

Tree Wall Decal

This stunning large tree wall decal is just perfect for a nature-themed nursery.
