Decorating a baby nursery is one of the most exciting parts of preparing for a new arrival. It's the place where you'll be spending most of your time bonding with your little one, so it's important to make it special. Wall decals are an excellent way to create a fun and unique look for your baby's room. They're easy to install, affordable, and can be easily removed when you want to change the décor. In this article, we'll explore the many ways you can use wall decals to decorate your baby's nursery.

When is the Best Time to Decorate a Nursery?

Typically, experts suggest starting to decorate your nursery at around 20 weeks into your pregnancy. This allows plenty of time to order any furniture or nursery decorations you need, as well as having it all installed. However, you can start decorating your nursery anytime you want. Just make sure you give yourself enough time to complete the project before your baby arrives.

What Colors Work Best for a Baby’s Room?

Choosing a color palette to decorate your nursery with is entirely up to you; whether you go for a traditional pink or blue theme or something neutral, opting for soft, calming colors works best for creating a soothing environment.

Opting for one central theme to tie the room together will make decorating a nursery so much simpler, too – animals, geometric shapes, or clouds and stars all make excellent nursery themes, and can be brought into the room on textiles, furniture or nursery wall decals.

Decorating Baby’s Room with Wall Stickers

Nursery wall decals are perfect for adding colors, shapes, patterns and pictures to your baby’s room, can be applied quickly and effortlessly, and best of all, they can be removed with no damage to your walls once your little one grows out of them. (In fact, they also work very well on any room in the house!)

Printed on a fabric-like material, nursery wall decals will sit perfectly on your walls and add that little extra flair to your nursery decoration.

Where Can I Apply Wall Decals in My Baby’s Room?

Nursery wall decals can be placed virtually anywhere in your nursery; all they require is a smooth surface to adhere to:

  • Above the crib: A large, colorful decal can serve as a beautiful focal point above the crib.

  • On the walls: Use decals to create a fun and whimsical mural on one or more walls of the nursery.

  • On the ceiling: For a unique touch, consider placing decals on the ceiling of the nursery. Afterall, this is where the baby will often be looking.

  • On furniture: Use small decals to add a fun touch to furniture pieces such as dressers, changing tables, or rocking chairs.

  • On the door: Add a personalized touch to the nursery door with a decal featuring your baby's name or initials.

  • On the windows: Use decals to create a fun border around the windows or to add a pop of color to window frames.

  • On the floor: For a fun and playful touch, consider using decals on the floor of the nursery, such as a hopscotch pattern or a colorful rug design.

  • Around the room: Use decals to create a cohesive theme throughout the entire nursery, such as a forest or animal theme.

How Do I Apply Nursery Wall Decals?

Applying wall decals is simple, and takes just a few easy steps.

  1. Unroll your nursery wall decal and discard the paper backing
  2. Place the wall decal face down on a smooth surface
  3. Peel off the top section of the sticker’s backing (larger wall decals have separate top sections)
  4. Stick the top of the decal to the wall – the adhesive allows it to be repositioned until you’re happy with the placement
  5. Slowly peel away the rest of the backing and use the squeegee included to smooth down the rest of the wall decal, making sure you avoid any bumps or bubbling

That’s it! Your nursery wall decal is good to go.
