The universe of kids’ wallpapers is tremendous and vibrant. There are no age recommendations that would assist parents to decide which types to choose for their space or room. However, it makes perfect sense to choose wallpapers for kids’ rooms based on patterns, colours, structures, cleaning characteristics and the development levels of the child.
In addition, wallpapers in children’s rooms tend to be changed fairly regularly as the kids go through different development stages and interests. Of course, there is no need to put up a different wallpaper every year. As a general practice, there are approximately 4 changes of wallpaper from birth to puberty. But it isn’t always necessary to re-wallpaper all four walls. The excellent choice of pattern and design wallpapers for children available in Wallpaper & Carpets Distributors can be used for just one feature wall, or to define different areas of the room such as sleep, study and playroom.
The various different developmental stages of a child, which are correlated to his or her age, determine perception and curiosities. This can be a very useful indicator when it comes to choosing wallpaper for children’s bedrooms.
Our new blog focus on infant or babies stages of development and how parents can base their determination of wallpaper for the kids bedroom on them.
Infants or Babies – the first year of life
Many parents-to-be lovingly decorate the playroom even before the child is born. When selecting a proper wallpaper, they often go for traditional models in pastel colours and with funny animal patterns or fairytale themes. But what is a baby able to perceive or see?
When babies are born, their eyesight is limited to about 20 – 30 cms; they mainly concentrate on their parents’ faces. The child will mainly see light-dark contrasts. After a while, other faces gradually become more attractive. Babies learn from watching faces and imitating facial expressions. At about one to two months, they start focussing on objects and movements. Primary colours like red, yellow, blue are most likely to captivate their attention. They are not yet able to distinguish between different grades of colour.
But with every month, their vision improves. Soon, the child will be able to see an object from a distance and stretch its arms out to touch it. The eyes adapt more and more to the atmosphere, and their room becomes an area of visual exploration. By the time a child reaches their first birthday, their sight has developed to approximately 50%.
Knowing about these developmental parameters helps when it comes to choosing the right wall decor for the baby’s room. Friendly, happy and light colours create a warm atmosphere of well-being – but it doesn’t always have to be the classic pink and blue. And don’t limit your selections to pastel hues, as we have just learned that babies predominantly see primary colours. A feature wall with, for instance, a yellow pattern/motif wallpaper depicting friendly animal faces can be perfect for your baby’s room. A patterned wall with a medley of animal figures, flowers, and trees in primary colours attracts the gaze of the baby as it gradually discovers more details. Pretty star or cloud wallpapers with larger-scale patterns also have a very pleasing, calming effect.
