Tip #1 to create a stylish kid’s room

Bring Outdoor Fabrics Inside

“Use outdoor fabrics indoors in high-traffic areas. I love the Breathe Easy fabric by Great Plains. Its super-soft bouclé is reminiscent of a classic Chanel suit. And Dedar makes incredible faux leathers and suedes that are completely wipeable. They look great on walls, as well as furniture.” —Natasha Baradaran

Tip #2 to create a stylish kid’s room

Invest in Versatile Storage

“The key to a happy life with small children is having a plan for emergency cleanup: lots of concealed storage. I’ve got beautiful boxes throughout my apartment, so I can almost run my arm across a table, dump everything into the box, stash it, and replace it all with fresh flowers. Done!” —Celerie Kemble

Tip #3 to create a stylish kid’s room

Choose Upholstery You Can Easily Clean
“You can have soft upholstered chairs — just choose a great vinyl or pleather for the seat bottoms, so you can hose them down after meals.” —Elizabeth Martin

Tip #4 to create a stylish kid’s room

Create More Floor Space
“Give kids a lot of floor space in their rooms. Push a twin-size bed against a wall the long way. With pillows stacked against the wall, it functions like a little sofa, and it doesn’t stick out in the room.” Katie Ridder

Wallpaper vs Paint: pros and cons (preparation)

WALLPAPER: CONS: Removing existing wallpaper can be a tedious task that requires patience and the right tools to be effective.  Stripping wallpaper can be done with chemicals or stripping tools, but care must be taken or damage can result to the wall. Consult a home improvement store for specific instructions for your application.

PAINT: PROS: If you are painting over a damaged wall, prepare imperfections with spackle and let dry 24 hours in advance.  Applying primer paint in advance to painting over darker color paint will make your painting preparation easier. Painting requires considerably less preparation time than wallpaper.

Wallpapers vs Paint: pros and cons (selection and durability)

WALLPAPERs: PROS: Very durable and will hold up to wear and tear of children, high traffic areas and many varieties are scrubbable. CONS: Since wallpaper is applied with an adhesive, high moisture bathrooms and kitchens may cause wallpapers to peel away from the wall.

PAINT: PROS: Depending on the sheen/finish paint is a good option for areas that need to have an inexpensive and easy application.  Semi-gloss to high gloss paints are durable and are usually reserved for trim, exterior doors, etc… Satin, Eggshell and occasionally Flat sheens are used on interior walls. CONS: When walls are damaged, scraped or hit, paint can chip and repairing and repainting will be necessary.

Wallpaper vs Paint: price

 “Wallpapers and paint can range in price from the low end to the high end of the cost spectrum. Wallpapers on average is more expensive to purchase the rolls, supplies and to have it installed.  Paint on average is cheaper and requires very few supplies, and an amateur can apply it.  It should be noted that inexpensive wallpaper can be purchased and if you do it yourself can cut down on installation costs. Similarly with paint, higher end faux paint finishes, and textured paint can be expensive especially if it needs to be professionally applied.”
