Pattern, alongside texture and colour, is one of the most crucial elements in interior design, kids’ rooms included. It plays an important role in every interior style, and you should always consider it while making important design decisions. By bringing different pattern to the scheme, you’ll be able to convey your design style, create contrast, give energy and draw interest to the place. It will also help you in bringing the room together and provide much-needed depth to small spaces by having an impact on its scales. A pattern is usually applied through walls, tiles or rugs, but there are also a few other exciting approaches that we are going to show you.

Much easier than painting, wallpapers are the most widely available and effective tools used for bringing pattern to kids’ rooms. From different geometric shapes to repeating floral prints, there are wallpapers out there able to satisfy every possible and impossible taste. So, finding one is not a problem, however, getting one that’s going to fit in your little one’s bedroom is whole nother story. If you are unsure, go for something neutral, like simple geometric shapes such as triangles, squares, dots or a grid, and make sure the colours match the rest of the design. But, if you don’t like to play it on the safe side, relax, go bold and add excitement and drama to the place with some wild patterns.

Decals give you a bit more freedom while creating patterns on walls. Because every piece is separate, you’ll be able to have fun with your kids while experimenting with the layout and in the process create some truly unique patterns together. However, if you are a neat freak, make sure to double check all the measures before applying any piece to the wall.

If you prefer to stay low key and avoid large surfaces, there are more subtle ways to introduce pattern to your kid’s room. And one of the easiest must be by adorning the floor with patterned rugs. However, patterned rugs don’t necessarily have to act alone! In combination with matching wall coverings or throw pillows, you could take the room to a whole next level.

If you don’t like to commit to one pattern for too long, then one of the best ways to introduce it is through your little one’s bed sheets, blankets or cushions. Unlike wallpapers, wall decals and rugs, these are usually more simple to replace, allowing you to experiment with patterns more easily.
