Wallpaper + Toddlers = ???
Wallpaper can be a wonderful design element that helps create the exact texture, color, accent and design you want for a room. Add a toddler into the equation, and it can become a nightmare. Everyone knows that when kids draw on walls they are expressing their inner artist, but with wallpaper they become demolition experts. One small pull can result in a large, unattractive and unintentional focal point. With today’s innovative paints and cleaning products, you can take pencil, pen, and crayon off a wall, but when a child decides to pull some wallpaper off, the only solution is to take it all down and start over, unless you have extra of the same wallpaper stored in your home. And even then, with aligning, and matching up the pattern, it is no simple task. Below are a few tips to consider if you are thinking about putting up wallpaper in your home.
- Take into consideration whether or not you have small children or are planning on having children in the future.
- Consider the accessability to the room by the children.
- Try designing the room around installation of the wallpaper as a border around the top perimeter of the room.
- Think about how long it may be before you will want to change the look/decor in that room, and the work and/or cost involved in taking down the wallpaper later.
