Growing little ones means that things will change fast in your home — including the function and design of rooms. That’s why peel-and-stick wallpaper is an excellent option whether you rent your home, or just know that the nursery will need updating as your child grows.
Peel-and-stick wallpaper is a great choice any time you want to make design changes that aren’t going to be for the long haul. It can be easily installed and removed without damaging the underlying walls, making it a popular choice for nursery rooms that need to grow with the little one’s changing taste. Peel-and-stick is self-adhesive and a breeze to remove (say bye to messy glues, which makes traditional wallpaper a pain to switch up).
Whether you’re creating a soft and gender-neutral nursery or a bold and bright space for your little one, here are some of our top picks for peel-and-stick wallpaper ideas that will inspire you.
Over the Rainbow
Customize your little one’s room with this set of peel-and-stick decals that features a large rainbow, polka dots and hearts in a variety of colours that will suit your aesthetic. What’s great about decals versus sheets of wallpaper is that you can get creative with the placement, and they don’t require measuring or cutting. If you have older kids, you can even get them to help with the task of placing these easy-to-remove stickers in their little siblings space.
Large Boho Rainbow Wall Decals, Amazon, $40.
How calming is this cute peel-and-stick wallpaper? We adore the illustrated hot air balloons that bring some whimsy to a neutral nursery. They come in a lovely blue and white colour combo, but you can also choose to have the wallpaper created with custom colours in order to suit your nursery design.
Blue Air Balloon Wallpaper, Livette’s Wallpaper, From $13 USD.
Pretty in Pink
Bring a soft elegance to your baby’s nursery with this delicate pink and white floral wallpaper. The stick-and-peel panels make installation all the more simple, though the Canadian company does offer traditional wallpaper options as well, if you’re so inclined.
Prettiest in Pink Floral Wallpaper, Timberlea Interiors, $140.
Under the Sea
Go bold with these Canadian-made wall decals that will take baby on a tranquil underwater adventure. The fun sea shapes look great for a nursery or toddler room, so you can have your child grow into this design, learning the names of their favourite aquatic creatures. Since they’re handmade, they come in a wide variety of colours. You can even choose to mix and match for a bolder look!
Under the Sea Wall Decals, Etsy, From $27.
Nice and Neutral
One of the more neutral nursery options on our list is this subtle turquoise moon phase printed wallpaper. It’s pleasing design would look great in so many rooms, from nursery to office to bathroom. Something soft and neutral like this is a great way to go if you don’t want the room to feel too nursery like (say if it’s multifunctional space that also gets used as a guest bedroom).
Tarina Moon Phase Peel-and-Stick Wallpaper, Rocky Mountain Decals, From $16.
The only thing you’ll need to watch out for with this simple Scandi-chic wallpaper, is that your little ones won’t try to colour in those sweet trees!
Forest Animal Nursery Wallpaper II, Timberlea Interiors, From $11.
A classic for a reason, this striped wallpaper will never go out of style in your nursery. It comes in three colours: baby blue, vanilla or grey. Stripes can be a real pain to paint because they’re all about perfect straight lines. If you’re after this look, make your life easier by ditching the painter’s tape and paint and reaching for a few panels of stick-and-peel wallpaper instead.
Brighton Stripes Wallpaper, Urban Walls, From $100 USD.
Add a bit of vintage charm to your baby’s nursery with this creamy neutral floral wallpaper design. The sketched flowers are accented by light blush and green, giving a fresh garden aesthetic to your little one’s space.
Primrose Wallpaper, Urban Walls, From $7.
On the Tree Top
If you’re inspired by the woodland nursery peel-and-stick wallpaper trend, look no further! We love these forest-themed decals that will leave your walls damage-free. There are trees and various woodland creatures from bears to hares. You can create a patterned wall or use them sparingly. We think they’d look oh-so cute as trim decoration as well.
Woodsy Decal, Opposite Wall, $63.
An easy way to get children familiar with their ABCs is to have them right on their walls! These are no scribbled primary letters though — instead, we’ve opted for including this sophisticated take on the alphabet. The stick-and-peel wallpaper features an assortment of animals with their corresponding first letter.
Alphabet Pattern Removable Wallpaper, Livette’s Wallpapers, From $13 USD.
