The Best Pictures & Prints For Children’s Bedrooms

Whether you’re decorating your first nursery, or are keen to give your kid’s bedroom an affordable update, there are numerous prints and pictures out there to choose from. Confused about where to begin the hunt? Here’s what interior designer Alice Skewis recommends.

Younger Kids

The great thing about kid’s bedrooms is you can have a lot of fun with what you hang on the walls, and when you get bored, a bit of Polyfilla and a lick of paint means you can start all over again.

If you’ve chosen a timeless, or expensive wallpaper in your child’s room, hanging prints can feel a little scary. If you’re not sure you want to make the commitment, try propping pictures on shelves or a mantelpiece if you have one. They will still look great.

Older Kids

Use a centre cross and work your way out so the group has some kind of structure. A mix of mediums can also give a collection a more personal feel, so you can team a great print with a painting, a piece of the child’s art, a memento from a holiday, a photograph and so on, all in different frames. The good thing about framed pictures is you can always swap them out and update them as the child grows older.

If you’re attempting a gallery wall, lie all your pictures out on the floor first to arrange them until you feel happy with how they look.

A series of three (everything looks better in odd numbers) pictures in the same frame hung perfectly straight and spaced apart can also look great. But get out your tape measure, spirit level and maybe even a laser if you have one, and don’t rush it. A lot of people hang pictures too high, but they often look best at eye level, like a mirror. In a child’s room, this means hanging them a bit lower than you normally would.
